Are you an honest person? … and did you just lie to yourself?
Colin Cloud knows the truth – and the truth is that we’re all sinners. We’re capable of deceit, vanity, envy, greed, pride and so much more.
Some sins are deadly. Some are delicious.
In Sinful, Cloud will charm the demons in your head and reveal whether you are saint or sinner. He’ll listen to those whispering voices that tempt you to defy the better angels of your nature.
Sinful, with special guest Chloé Crawford, Colin will reveal why it’s so much more fun to ask for forgiveness than permission, and why enough is never enough.
Colin will explore your psyche and show why you are driven by desire.
Get ready to discover why you are SINFUL – and proud of it!

He might even indulge in a few delicious sins of his own.

Terrifying mind reading … Colin is as charming as they come.
Cloud has the wit of a comedian, the intensity of a hypnotist and the allure of Sherlock Holmes himself. He’s become known the world over as a man who can reveal your deepest, darkest secrets. He continues to be a hugely popular guest on ITV’s This Morning (his revelation of Holly Willoughby’s embarrassing childhood memory of her interaction with a trampoline went viral).
He has since caused amazement and more than a few red faces on Radio and TV Broadcasts around the world. Colin also worked with co-creator and writer Mark Gatiss on the online presence for the Sherlock Christmas Special for BBC1.
Colin Cloud spent 2017 touring his five-star, sold-out hit show – except for the days he starred in and hosted The Illusionists in London’s West End and more recently The Illusionists live from Broadway.
Truly amazed. Go and see him – you literally won’t believe your eyes.
… and he provides a well-rounded, entertaining hour at the Fringe that will leave everyone asking themselves, ‘How did he do that?’
Cloud finely balances his incredible Sherlock Holmes-esque detection skills with some very neat and well-judged comedic moments.
…leaving his audience open-mouthed… and just a little nervous.”
IT’S BEEN A BIG YEAR.
Derren Brown said that Colin Cloud was “amazing”. He also said, “Loved your act!” and “Such a delight!” TV presenter Holly Willoughby yelled to him, “Do me!” on live TV, Mark Gatiss, one of the creators of BBC’s Sherlock, shouted, “Burn him!” It’s just as well for Colin that witch trials are a thing of the past, because he’ll soon blowing minds and alarming people in the most entertaining way with his brand new show. This new, fully immersive experience will ask a lot of questions: How secure is your personal security? How impenetrable is your mind? How safe are your deepest, darkest thoughts? The answer? Not very. Colin knows exactly what’s in store for you, and he’ll prove it – with plenty of twists and turns, and through his most daring and dangerous feats to date.

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
