Could it be Magic: Four Magician One Cup

Written and Performed 

by Paul Aitchison



Paul Aitchison, comedy actor and performer best known to fringe audiences as co-writer and performer in award-winning sketch act Mixed Doubles, presents his ambitious, original and hilarious comedy magic show. A never before seen blend of character comedy, audience participation and mind-melting magic.


Playing all four acts in the Finale of a spectacularly bizarre magic competition, Aitchison unleashes his unique blend of feel-good comedy with genuinely jaw-dropping magic tricks as each finalist competes for your vote and the hallowed trophy…It’s bonkers, it’s bamboozeling, 

but...Could It Be Magic?


Battling it out for the title and trophy…meet the Finalists: 


KLAUSE FANTASTICHE: Germany’s No1 Illusionist (in his price range) is known for his grand illusions, high production values and having Fantastiche hair.  But how will he fare in a Fringe venue without his trusty battalion of dancers, stagehands and tigers?


ZANTOS THORNE: The self-professed ‘Brain Fondler of Wisconsin’. This mind reading magician is dark, moody and ready to kill the competition. Winning would be just the boost he needs to move up in his career and out of his Mom’s basement.


COLIN & CAROL: Household names since the 1970’s, husband and wife team Colin and Carol are surely the golden couple of British conjouring, golden showered with awards and ready to prove they still have what it takes. Ingore the gossip columns, their relationship has never been stronger. Indeed, ‘The Strongest Magic Is Their Love™’. 


REG KETTLE: Founder, president and sometimes janitor of the Magic Ring Magical Society . Reg is your host and (suspiciously) the current title holder...yet again. Excellent Availability through 2019/2020.


Four Magicians, One Cup. Who wins? You decide…
