In 2014 and 2015, Colin Cloud was the runaway success of the Edinburgh Comedy Festival Fringe with 23 sold out performances and multiple 5 star reviews. On top of this, his other show received the ‘Skinny Magazine – Talk of the Town’ award, which was the first time it had ever been awarded.
Colin Cloud is a forensic scientist who mixes mind magic and brain science with his love of Arthur Conan Doyle’s works, resulting in him being described as the closest thing in the universe to the real life Sherlock Holmes. In his brand new show, Colin Cloud will, quite literally, get away with murder. (Well, maybe not literally with literal murder. That would be wrong. And illegal.)
Cloud will deduce everything about you, then he’ll be kind enough to explain how he did it. You’ll understand why he’s never lost a game of poker, learn how to discover the phone number of anyone you like, recall information from the recesses of your mind and he will even share with you the ability to connect with people on a deeper and more meaningful level than you’ve ever experienced before.
He’ll leave you convinced he’s a psychic savant with the hypnotic powers of a calculated angel. Colin Cloud is potentially the most dangerous man in the world.
Luckily, he’s on our side.

This blew my mind, this guy is sooo good, really amazing and so entertaining and engaging. I bet you you’ll come out of there going “how did he DO that!!” A brilliant hour of fun mind-bending stuff for all! Enjoy and catch it if you can before the fringe ends! Julie Odell
Amazing – and I was a sceptic! Can’t begin to work out how he does it. Very entertaining and he is a very personable young man. I look forward to seeing him at the Fringe in the future but reckon he is destined for greater things.Richard Mackintosh
Absolutely brilliant show, mad skills! He was personable and communicated well with the audience. A fascinating show! 5 Stars!Michelle McIntyre
Caught your solo show on Saturday evening… blown away. Great interaction with the audience and looking forward to the next time. Colour of Ham show directly afterwards was fantastic, again. Kevin Mcgaff
Absolutely loved this show – clever, funny, astonishing and no humiliating audience participation – a clincher! Go – he CAN read your mind! Cathy Mcculloch
What an amazing first show of the Fringe. How can he guess so much from drawings, words, amount of money? And the last moment is amazing, a must-see, he is a true magician. Lynn Holland
How does he do it? The family next to us were obviously transparent as he knew where they lived, the names of all their pets, and random words they read in a book. He is incredible. Peter Whitfield
Saw this show on our 1st night in Edinburgh and what a cracking start to our stay! Thoroughly entertaining, Colin Cloud was cheeky, funny and so clever – we were seated in the 2nd row and had a fantastic view but this gave nothing away as to “how he does it”. Definitely a WOW show!! Don’t miss it.Fay Collins
