Paul Zenon, the original Fun Loving Criminal (other aliases include 'King Con' and 'The Sultan of Swindle'!) is the UK's leading comedy magician, with dozens of TV credits to his name including three recent hour-long one-man 'street magic' specials screened by Channel 4.
Paul has appeared in around thirty countries and in every conceivable location; from the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas to the hold of an aircraft carrier in the Adriatic, from the London Palladium to a clearing in the jungles of Belize, and from The Magic Castle in Hollywood to the back of a truck in a Bosnian war zone.
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..." etc.).
his return, Paul spent a short spell as a casino croupier before returning
to his vocation of 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, Gibraltar,
the Falkland and Ascension Islands, Croatia and Bosnia.
For over fifteen years Paul has specialised in corporate entertainment, presenting and performing at conferences and events worldwide, as well as being a favourite on the comedy club circuit. His client list is littered with Blue Chip companies and his style and material are fresh, original and contemporary One of his major strengths is his ability to gauge an audience and adapt accordingly: not many performers receive a standing ovation at the Comedy Store and the Savoy in the same evening!
During the past three years Paul has appeared in Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Greece, Spain, USA, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Kuwait and Australia.
He has performed at major theatres around Britain as part of the Comedy Store National Tour, and was 'Special Guest' at the Royal Television Society's annual Craft and Design Awards. In 1999 the hour-long Channel 4 Easter special, Paul Zenon Turning Tricks received rave reviews, and his second special Paul Zenon's Tricky Christmas was Channel 4's highest rating entertainment show of the holiday season.
2000 Paul performed a sell-out run at the Adelaide Festival, worked
as magic consultant for Eurotrash (!), appeared as 'Special Guest' on
all seven episodes of Something for the Weekend (Channel 4), and was
one of the select few invited to appear at the opening of the new Comedy
Store in Manchester.
Edinburgh Festival - Paul will be performing his one-man show at the Assembly Rooms from the 2nd to the 26th of August at 10.30pm.
The Off The Street, On The Road Tour: Paul appears at major theatres around the UK from the 15th to the 29th of September.
