If you like magic and slight of hand, this show is for you. An intimate setting, Paul creates a special event with his tales, and the tricks are incredible. Spend an evening at a different show!

Paul engaged us in his life story from steel works to TV star, with a series of astounding magic tricks that happened right in front of us. This show is suitable for the whole family and we were talking about our experience for days.
