Colin Cloud

Biography

Colin Cloud is the Sherlock Holmes of entertainment if Holmes had a flair for comedy, the Great Detective of live events performing everywhere from Broadway, New York, to the Royal Variety performance in London’s West End.

Look at your hands. Your nails. The heels of your shoes. What do you see? Nothing? Imagine someone who could look at those details and see everything. Everything. Only, you don’t have to imagine. Because this is precisely what Colin Cloud does.

"Utterly mind blowing" – HRH Prince William

 

He’ll know where you’ve been that day, what you do for a living, the car you drive, even your PIN code. He’ll read you like a book. He left ITV’s Jonathan Ross speechless, and Ant and Dec screamed in disbelief. The media have described him as the real-life Sherlock and witnesses don’t say much, as they’re usually left speechless.

"Cloud is back, with his magical prowess in tow, to get you involved in a mind boggling show" – ★★★★The List

 

"he really excels..mesmerising, head-scratching, crowd pleasing show" – ★★★★Daily Mail

 

When the other boys were out playing football, Colin was predicting the score with almost psychic accuracy. He’s the Holmes of entertainment, if Holmes had a flair for comedy. He’s the deductionist of hypnotism, the Great Detective of live events.

"charisma and comedy.. spectacular stage presence.. There are so many elements to this show that it becomes a full experience. Colin Cloud knows how to put on a show and thoroughly succeeds" –★★★★★Edinburgh Festivals

 

"Cloud is easily the biggest act of his genre at the Fringe… disarmingly charming and funny, and the audience warm to him instantly… manages to endear himself instantly, although everyone is shocked and stunned by his insight." – ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

 

Colin Cloud is the best and maybe even the wisest man you’ve ever known. He's performed for professional sceptics like Penn and Teller, has wowed the hard-to-please Simon Cowell, and has left people convinced that he has mystical skills of reading minds and influencing outcomes. Performer, after dinner keynote speaker, consultant, coach, comedian: the entertaining and endearing Colin Cloud is THE forensic mind reader.

"Cloud is a showman, involving as many audience members as possible, spreading the bafflement and maximising the enjoyment. His finale – in fact, his whole show – is cracking entertainment. Guaranteed to have you walking home with a smile on your face" – ★★★★ The Skinny

 

Cloud has the wit of a comedian and the intensity of a hypnotist. He’s become known the world over as a man who can reveal your deepest, darkest secrets. He continues to be a hugely popular guest on ITV’s This Morning (his revelation of Holly Willoughby’s embarrassing childhood memory of her interaction with a trampoline went viral). He has since caused amazement and more than a few red faces on Radio and TV Broadcasts around the world. Colin also worked with co-creator and writer Mark Gatiss on the online presence for the Sherlock Christmas Special for BBC1

"Amazing.. Loved your act.. such a delight" – Derren Brown

 

"one of the greatest thought readers of all time " – Uri Geller

 

"Burn him" – Mark Gatiss

 

"thrills, chills and exceptional charisma.. Both his content and execution are impeccable. He will seduce you with his intellect, stun you with his precognition, and inspire your awe. An utterly incredible performance" – ★★★★★ Edinburgh Guide

 

Complete sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014 to 2019 and Semi Finalist on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, his astounding deductions and outrageous stunts have stunned audiences and intrigued sceptics from New York to Australia; from London’s West End to Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.

His Edinburgh Fringe shows sell out annually and have been voted in the top three of over 4000 acts. In 2017, Cloud appeared on the Royal Variety Performance and toured the U.S. in The Illusionists Live from Broadway.

His 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show PSYCHO(Logical), described as a thrill ride, where your thoughts and imaginations will guide and mislead you before ultimately, revealing the truth, was a total sell out, and earned Cloud some of the most incredible reviews of his career to date.

AGT 2017 Semi Finalist Colin Cloud was chosen to appear on smash hit talent series ‘America's Got Talent: The Champions’ which aired in the US at the start of 2019, on NBC. Viewers were treated to an incredible showcase of the very best from the global franchise, the winners and most notable contestants from across the world, facing off head-to-head to see who is the ultimate top act. Colin gave a perfect performance, wowing audiences once again, and delivering an unbelivable finale.

"exhibits such jaw dropping, mind boggling ability.. electrifyingly compelling" – ★★★★ The Scotsman

 

"mind-blowing.. you will come out believing in magic, mindreading and constantly thinking “how did he do that?” Impressive, funny, skillful and entertaining.. not to be missed" – ★★★★★ Scots Gay Mag

 

"Cloud consistently astounds his audience with his mind reading tricks, and uses both classical and unusual techniques for scary magic to great effect." – ★★★★ World Magic Review

 

"a slick, sophisticated hour of illusion which enthrals the audience at every turn. They gasp audibly, each and every time they fall prey to Cloud’s psychological mystery.. an hour of contemporary magic which makes time pass at double speed" – ★★★★ Broadway Baby

 

Colin and magician Chloe Crawford, who was the very special guest on Colin's Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019 show, appeared on ITV's This Morning, producing a trick which left the nation speechless. They chatted to the show's hosts about their death-defying, upcoming performance at the Fringe, the challenges that women in magic face, and revealed the story of their spellbinding proposal - watch here

Colin returned to the enormous Pleasance Grand in his best show yet 'Sinful', where he charmed the demons in the audiences heads and reveal whether they were saints or sinners. With special guest Chloé, Colin revealed why it’s so much more fun to ask for forgiveness than permission, and why enough is never enough. It was a massive critically acclaimed hit, selling out every show, and cementing his place in Fringe history.

“This man is keeping this art alive & interesting for 2019 audiences. Huge respect ” – ★★★★★ Celebrity Radio

 

“if you want to be guaranteed to see some of the most entertaining magic around, you should be going to Colin Cloud’s show” – ★★★★ World Magic Review

 

“never fails to entertain, amaze and astound.. His shows at the Fringe are one of the highlights of the three-week arts and entertainment extravaganza and this year has proved to be no different. His shows are utterly compelling – he is simply a genius” – ★★★★★ The Edinburgh Reporter 

 

“the undisputed rockstar of the Edinburgh Fringe” – ★★★★★ Broadway Baby 

 

Hailed as one of the most exciting alliances in the history of modern magic, Shin Lim (Winner of AGT season 13 and AGT The Champions 2019) and Colin are currently headlining the Mirage in Las Vegas, USA, where the latter is now based.
