Paul Zenon is one of Britain’s top tricksters and authority on cons, scams and hoaxes with numerous TV appearances. He is Britain’s leading magician – and funny with it.
Paul has performed in around thirty countries in every conceivable location, from the London Palladium to the jungles of Belize, from the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas to an aircraft carrier in the Adriatic, and from the Comedy Store to the back of a truck in a Bosnian war zone. He has literally hundreds of television appearances to his name including three top-rating hour-long one-man specials on Channel 4 and one on ITV.
Paul is probably the UK’s busiest stand-up corporate entertainer, performing after-dinner entertainment, link-presenting and hosting awards ceremonies at events worldwide. In the last year alone he has appeared in Paris, Cannes, Nice, Monte Carlo, Dubai, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Manila, Mauritius and Tokyo.
Paul has always had a devious streak. He was eight years old when he pulled off his first sting, selling raffle tickets to the residents of his street and inventing a fictional lucky winner to avoid having to award the non-existent prize.
As a teenager, he travelled around the Mediterranean earning his living through similarly suspect practices, the more respectable of which included performing as a street magician and fire-eater and telling the fortunes of tourists (“I can see that you will be travelling in the near future…”).
On his return, Paul spent a short spell as a casino croupier before resuming his vocation of professional trickster and comedian, serving his apprenticeship in summer seasons in Blackpool and Jersey (or ‘Club 80 to Dead’ as it was known), cruise ships, continental holiday hotels and numerous tours of British and United Nations military bases in Germany, Belize, the Falkland and Ascension Islands, Croatia and Bosnia.
Paul’s TV ‘street magic’ shows Turning Tricks, Tricky Christmas and Trick or Treat have been screened worldwide and are amongst Channel 4’s highest-ever rating specials. Other recent TV appearances have included White Magic with Paul Zenon, Magic, Crafty Tricks of War, Countdown (special guest in Dictionary Corner), Are You Telepathic?, The Chris Moyles Show, Crime Team, It Shouldn’t Happen to a TV Performer, World’s 50 Greatest Magic Tricks, Greatest Magic Tricks in the Universe…Ever, Best Ever Magic Tricks, Secret History – Magic at War, Jane Goldman Investigates, The Test, Ready Steady Cook, Richard and Judy, Terry and Gaby, RI:SE, Live Floor Show , Loose Lips, Good Food Live, Stupid Punts, The Wright Stuff and This Morning. Paul recently hosted twenty-two hour-long episodes of Worst Case Scenario on Bravo.
