|WELCOME TO MAGICWEST!
JUST WHO IS THE FUNSLINGER?
Way out in Canada's far West lives a wild, wacky, western
comedy magician they call The Funslinger. Originally from England,
he found his creative inspiration in the Old West and the traveling magicians
who toured the cattle and mining towns of North America between 1850 and
The Funslinger describes his magical style as Magic Goes
West, a zany off-the-the-wall approach which satirizes magicians.
While you may laugh as he plays fast and loose with the traditions of magic,
every now and then he does something which has a kick in the head like
The Funslinger aka Clive Court, toured the English-speaking
world as The Casual Cowboy Conjurer and his travels as a TV entertainer
took him to Australia, New Zealand and the United States before settling
in Canada. He earned his master's degree in Television at Syracuse
University in New York State where he also worked for PBS.
In Canada, not exactly cultural magnet for magicians,
he has learned to be more versatile becoming an educator, writer, lobbyist,
and broadcast consultant. While these activities take up an increasing
amount of his time, he always prefers to return to his first love... making
people laugh as The Funslinger-- magical entertainer and emcee-- as he
says, "Have Fun, Will Travel!"
