Close your eyes. Now think of a song or a picture. What would you like Chris Cox to do? Draw the image? Dance the routine? Because he thinks he knows what’s going on in your mind and he reckons this works on women. You’ll be left educated, shocked, amazed and probably attracted to him. Even likes of Dannii Minogue, Kelly Osbourne, Agyness Deyn, Tim Minchin and Jonathan Ross are huge fans.
Chris Cox is an accomplished and most-loved magician and comedian, who delights audiences using a combination of quick wit, banter, magic, psychology, body language, influencing, devilish good looks… and lying, to make you think he knows what you’re thinking, despite never knowing what you are thinking, or being able to really do anything he says. All this helps him to produce the critically acclaimed, award winning show Fatal Distraction, which is largely framed on the story of a relationship. Cox, who wears his heart on his sleeve, re-evaluates love and rejection and enables audiences to reconsider his undoubtedly accurate talent and exuberant personality.
Cox has made appearances on BBC Radio 1, The Mentalist Revealed (C5), Dick & Dom’s Funny Business (BBC Two) and Little Howard’s Big Question (BBC One) not only that but he’s also part of the Bafta nominated team as the man who brought magic to BBC’s Merlin.
