Scoop is a multi-talented magician who can perform either in close-up situations or in a cabaret or stage environment. His stage show combines conjuring with comedy, mind control, danger, juggling and escapology to create a truly unforgettable experience. His close up performances make the impossible happen right under people's noses, sometimes even in their own hands, all with an entertaining cheeky-chappy presentation. Scoop's material is family friendly so giggles and gasps will be guaranteed from young and old, he can also provide kids' entertainment including magic, juggling, music, games with prizes and 'Barry the Bird', a real dove that the kids get to meet and stroke.
Scoop was resident jester at Camelot Theme Park and Park Hall Hotel in Lancashire for nine years performing for crowds ranging from small handfuls up to 3,000 people from small children to cocktail parties and everything in between. He now performs at holiday parks corporate events and weddings all over the country. He has performed for the England, and Manchester City football teams as well as the stars of Emmerdale, Coronation Street and Hollyoaks. He has worked for ITV both as a magic consultant alongside David Jason and as a hand double in Emmerdale for Joe Gilgun (Eli Dingle) and his performances have featured on the BBC's The One Show, The 4 O'clock Club and Don't Tell The Bride as well as Peter Kay's Britain's Got The Pop Factor. Scoop has also worked all over the UK and beyond for companies such as Cosmos Holidays, Brittany Ferries, Center Parcs, Hilton Hotels UK, Haven, Park Resorts, Intu Trafford Centre, Manchester United, O2 and HSBC alongside entertainers like Spellbound, Dynamo, Rob Brydon and Jason Manford. He has even performed for The Magic Circle and produces and stars in his own theatre shows.

Scoop was an excellent performer. He entertained the crowds during his meet and greet for 2 hours. We received great comments back from the guests about Scoop. He did a great job, I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Scoop was the most mind blowing performer we have seen in the recent years. He kept an audience of nearly 200 people of all ages spell bound throughout his 45 minutes show. The committee has unanimously decided to invite Scoop again next year! I would gladly recommend Scoop to anyone looking for magic or entertainment, he is well worth the money and time. Thank you Scoop for the amazing performance and see you next year :)

Paul Dawson (aka Scoop) is an excellent entertainer, with experience of performing to families and keeping them entertained with jokes and tricks. He's adaptable to any areas, and on the most recent times I've seen him (including performing magic for Rebecca Adlington on The One Show) he's shown a real rapport with people.
Paul (Scoop) is an extremely versatile and energetic performer who can elicit vocal enthusiasm from even the most reluctant crowd.
He is a great fire-performer and juggler and a spectacular magician who can amuse and amaze with the simplest things as well as performing incredible illusions.
His contagious energy never subsides whether he's performing for a handful of people or for a crowd of thousands and he will give anything a try as long is it pleases a crowd! If a combination of humour and amazement is what you want then Scoop's the one to provide it.
I gladly recommend Scoop to you.
