He'll cut off your tie, tear up your money, lift your watched and split your sides!

Client testimonials

Excellent. Could not have asked for a better keynote speaker. Paul's ability to keep the audience entertained and amused (even his victims) during his one hour presentation must be commended. I have seen many keynote speakers over my time and Phil Cass is a name that I will remember for many years to come.

Tasmanian Independent Retailers

Every single person in the room really laughed - even the victims. It was the most perfect entertainment for a mostly male audience after a couple of tough days work.

Cisco Systems

A great combination of magic and humour. Outstanding magic, non-offensive, extremely funny humour.

Ingres Pty Limited

Attendees at our dinner function included Government Ministers and senior level political staffers, some of our country's leading political journalists, bureaucrats & top level executives from the corporate world along with their partners. Providing comedic entertainment can be fraught with risk as one person’s humour may be offensive to another. Your show was hilarious, extraordinary and down-right good fun. You dealt with your “volunteers” with good-nature and without humiliation. I look forward to another opportunity to welcome you back to the National Press Club of Australia. Your professionalism helped make me look good as event manager so a personal Thank You!
