began his career in entertaining way back in 1989, serving his apprenticeship
in the uncompromising world of London comedy clubs and culminating in
many appearances on TV's 'Stand-Up Live'.
saw Clive move into the slightly more sophisticated world of corporate
after-dinner speaking (well, the heckling was more sophisticated anyway!).
His career in the corporate sector as an after-dinner comic was hugely
successful and he travelled the country to appear for Rolls Royce, BMW
and Nissan to name but a few. As the show became more streamlined and

Since 2001, the
magic show had grown and grown. Audience participation is now the most

Clive can include any number from one to ten 'glamorous' assistants

house, Sweeney Todd would have been proud. Although magic has always
been a part of his life, it wasn't until 2001 that he started using
it in his act. It began almost accidentally. He had a booking to perform
at an annual conference for a brewery and thought they might enjoy
the famous 'glass-bottle, bottle-glass' routine. They cried with laughter!
Gradually, more and more illusions crept into the show and have been
so popular with audiences that Clive now presents a completely magical
