    Saw him (& Debbie) a few years ago doing their stage show - the theatre wasn't full (why the hell not?) but they put on a great show, lots of audience participation and tricks that baffled us (even though we were sitting near the front). Great evening, and they were due to come to our local theatre later this year - we would have gone again.

    After his illness was announced, one of his sons started fundraising for charities relevant to Paul - be nice if this got more publicity:

    I had lunch with him and Debbie in 2006. He was charming, intelligent and very funny. Debbie is also delightful. Very sad indeed. One of life's true nice guys.

    He was working 3 weeks ago, the announcement about his illness was made after he cancelled a show. It all happened very quickly. RIP.

    A good man who served many and brought a lot of happiness in his time.
    I hope he is still doing tricks in the afterlife.

    He once hit a golf ball into my garden and asked politely for it back, slightly tricky as my two youngsters were doing a roaring trade in collecting up stray golf balls and selling them back. He had to convince them that his ball was not a lost ball but merely misplaced!
