Colin Cloud is fascinated by human behaviour and there is no doubt that you will leave the theatre fascinated by his craft and his skill. Cloud is no fortune teller. In fact, he admits that he is cynical about psychics himself. Instead, he is a forensic mind reader, a mentalist and an extremely clever comedian.
Returning to the Fringe with his latest show – Exposé – Cloud is ready to wow his audiences and bewilder his biggest sceptics. Having appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, This Morning and most recently, as The Deductionist in the world-renowned touring magic show The Illusionists, Colin Cloud is ready to take the Fringe by storm.
Exposé will mess with your mind. From the moment the show begins, prepare to be shocked, amazed, perplexed and in awe. Cloud has designed his latest show to expose each and every member of his audience including their deepest and darkest secrets – no one is safe.
The entire performance is faultless – Cloud is a professional and being the ‘Master of Deduction’, there is no room for error. Unlike most fringe shows, there is no hiding from this man. Whether you are at the very back of the theatre or sitting in the front row, you will leave the auditorium feeling involved. Each and every member of the audience has a part to play in this magic and you will be filled with a very real sense of being part of something unthinkable.
The denouement of the show is absolutely incredible and will mess with your mind for days. A very dangerous experiment leads to a game of ‘extreme hide-and-seek’ that completely finishes the show off in an unimaginable way.
There is a strong sense of pride watching a fellow Scot take to the stage and amaze the audience in the way that this wizard does. Colin Cloud’s ability to manipulate his audience ensures that he has each and every one of them in the palm of his hand. In between the shocks and gasps of amazement, Cloud will have you in hysterics with extremely well-timed ditties that accompany this performance worthy of any stage in Vegas.
