ILLUSIONIST Sean Alexander will bemuse, baffle and entertain audiences in equal measure when he brings his magic show to Clacton.***AUG07***

The award-winning entertainer is on his debut British theatre tour after a series of hugely acclaimed TV and international cabaret performances.

As his alter ego the Confusionist, he has taken his magical world of grand illusion, levitation and impossible mind-reading predictions to top venues around the world, including the London Palladium.

He shot to fame on Britain's Got Talent in 2010, when Piers Morgan described him as "one of the best magic acts we've seen".

But Sean had been perfecting his craft since an early age.

"Ever since I was given my first magic set at the age of 8 I have been captivated by magic," he said.

Enthralled by the relatively simple tricks in the set, Sean became fascinated with magic.

He now specialises in grand illusion, mind-reading and close-up magic.

The new fast-paced show is simply called Illusions.

Sean said "I just love my audience to say to me at the end of the show 'how on earth did you do that?'

"My objective irrespective of what type of magic I'm performing is to make people happy in wide-eyed wonder."

Sean claims some of his illusions would not look out of place in Las Vegas.

But he couldn't pull off the greatest trick of all – saving his beloved Norwich City from the drop last season.

The Confusionist is at the Princes Theatre this Sunday at 7.30pm. Tickets are £19 (£17 concessions, £60 family of four) on 01255 686633.
