Clive Allen & Tracy have been professionally entertaining audiences around the world since 1987 with their unique combination of world class slight of hand, comedy audience participation and grand illusion.

“My grandfather was a magician in England and was successful even though he died when I was a young boy of seven,” said Clive. “Later when I was 15 years of age, I saw a magic show on television that showed you how to do a magic trick. I practiced it that night and performed it for my friends in school the next day.”

Everyone was amazed at Clive’s trick and he loved the response he received from performing it. This peaked his interest and left him wanting more of this newly found fame.

Since then, Clive Allen & Tracy have taken their audiences through a roller coaster ride of emotions with their incredible talent and sincere performing style. They have entertained audiences around the world and have been seen on both U.S. and international television. They have appeared at The Emmy Awards, Ceasar’s Resorts International, Resorts USA, and were selected as one of the top ten magicians from the U.S. and Canada to perform at Magicfest 2000 in Singapore, the largest magic production in that country!
