An old friend of mine, Ian Keable used to be an accountant. 25 years ago we worked together at what was Touche Ross (now Deloitte.)
Some years later Ian decided to focus on his passion and he has since been a full time 'magical comedian' - and he plays on the fact that he still looks like the archetypal accountant.
His well received one man show is playing all round the UK over the next few months. Click the link to find details of his Conjuring Up Comedy tour.
I love the way Ian notes that VAT is relevant to his one man magic show as it contains Very Amusing Tricks.
Conjuring Up Comedy is a two hour show, including an interval, that Ian has performed all over the country. The first half is about his transition from accountant to magical comedian; the second half is essentially his act as performed today.
