Paul Romhany

PAUL ROMHANY has taken magical entertainment in a new direction by combining magic and theatre in an innovative and charming way. Paul is experienced in comedy and close up magic, but is most famed for his unique interpretation of Charlie Chaplin. His famous Charlie Chaplin magic act is regarded as one of the most original and entertaining shows in magic today, all delivered in the silent film star’s formidable style. His Chaplin act has kept him one of the busiest magicians in the world, performing for millions of people from almost every country. His clients include the Royal Family of Monaco, Mont Blanc, Toshiba, IBM and for the past 15 years has been a regular headline act on high end cruise ships.

His style of comedy is innovative, fresh and very charming - winning audiences over wherever he performs. In 2014 Paul celebrated his 25th year as a full time professional magician and is considered one of the very best in the world.

To see Paul Romhany on stage is to witness a magical transformation. While his skills and artistry as an illusionist are unsurpassed, Paul takes his performance to another dimension when he applies makeup as the audience watches, suddenly leaving behind Paul Romhany and becoming Charlie Chaplin.

Like a silent movie come to life, Paul brings the visual comedy of Charlie Chaplin back to life in this International Award Winning Magic Act, considered to be one of the most entertaining and original acts in magic today. His ability to communicate without words, to take a room full of people and turn them into an audience, and then to elevate that audience to an extremely high level of fun and laughter is what keeps this act in such high demand throughout the world.

This is a highly visual comedy show, without words, that can range from a short 3 minute television guest appearance to a full evening show, as featured on many of the luxury cruise lines and theatersaround the world.
