Projects Paul Kieve was hired to work on Kate Bush's groundbreaking live
concert in 2014. 32 years earlier, at an album signing, Paul had
given her a book about magic.
“When I put the phone down, I went to the bookshelf and
went straight to this book” says Kate. "I took it to the next
meeting... and when there was a convenient pause, I pulled
out the book. He’d written his name and address inside the
front cover 32 years before. The look of disbelief on his face!
It’s not often you can pull a magic trick on a magician!”
Fun Fact Kate Bush, Independent - November 2016

"He startles people with his skills, perpetrating a sense of wonder that has almost vanished from the work of most performing magicians"

"It's rare for me to experience wonder but my friend Paul Kieve gave me that experience for an illusion he created.“

- David Copperfield -

"The illusions are ingenious"

- Paul Schultz -

New York Daily News

"Some of the best theatre illusion I've ever seen"

- BBC Radio 4 Kaleidescope -

"Paul Kieve's genius shines again. He has an ability to completely re-envision the classics of theatrical illusion that others won't touch, to revive lost treasures and quietly raise the bar with each new production."

- Derren Brown -

“Great Britain's Wizard of 'ahs'."

- Magic Magazine, Las Vegas -

“Loads of the magic fooled me, indeed took my breath away.”

- Teller -
