When Paul Daniels takes to the stage wearing a wig, depending on your sensibility, you can be pretty sure that the next hour will be full of fun and entertainment. The legendary magician and performer will take to the stage in the Royal Theatre, Castlebar, on Thursday, May 3.
In the world of television magic, no one has enjoyed more success than Paul Daniels. From the moment he burst on to our screens his magic shows have topped the ratings. Add to that a unique comedy style and you have a complete entertainer and one of the funniest men in show business.
In 1983 Daniels was presented with the prestigious Magician of the Year Award by the Hollywood Academy of Magical Arts before a star-studded audience in Los Angeles. It was a tremendous achievement for Daniels, and he was the first magician from outside the USA to receive the award.
In this show, which takes the form of a trip down memory lane with some magic thrown in for good measure, Daniels, now 73, shows no signs of slowing down. His patter with the crowd is as slick as ever and his tricks as sharp as always. And with Debbie McGee on hand as his still very, very, glamorous assistant, this is a must for fans of magic and, of course, Paul Daniels himself.
