Paul Daniels’ Cup

14 January 2022

Paul Daniels (1938-2016) defined magic for the UK public for more than a generation. His series The Paul Daniels Magic Show was crammed with hilarious inventive routines, historical recreations of old magical acts, and a huge array of guest stars and international variety acts. It ran for 15 years and attracted, at its peak, over 15 million viewers. Paul in his day also held the record for the longest running one man show in London’s West End.

This cup was used by Daniels in his signature comedic routine which helped launch his TV career. It’s a one cup version of the better known Cups & Balls trick.

Paul’s catchphrase was “You’ll like this… not a lot, but you’ll like it.” His long-time assistant and widow, the lovely Debbie McGee, is an Honorary Vice-President of The Magic Circle.
