Nasty Eric the Pirate

Nasty Eric the Pirate performs magic and sculpts balloon swords and animals, can juggle “cannonballs” and entertain with a convincing pirate character

Paul’s forte is walk-around, close-up, comedy Magic, his goal is performing for the audience rather than at them. Entertainment and interaction his catchwords. Surprise his calling card. He has been working as a professional Magician for 28 years (36 years as a clown).

Influenced by his history in clowning he carries his wit into the magic arena, fusing comedy, mime, acting and magic into an entertaining performance style that amuses all ages. Perfectly suited to corporate walk-around entertainment and private functions, he weaves magic into an interactive experience with his audience using props not normally associated with “straight magicians”. As well as close-up magic and comedy he also incorporates balloon sculpting into magical presentations, integrating pick-pocketing on occasion, culminating in some of the most startling outcomes guaranteed to surprise even the most discerning audiences.
