The special guest host for the 2011 Dentistry Awards will be cutting-edge comedy magician Paul Zenon.
Paul will be taking to the stage at Leicester’s Athena in December, entertaining the guests and playing a major part in the eagerly-awaited awards ceremony itself.
For the past 25 years, Paul has brought his unique combination of contemporary trickery and streetwise stand-up to the stages and screens of Britain and more than 30 countries worldwide.

This is in addition to writing and presenting five one-man hour-long primetime specials – Paul Zenon Turning Tricks, Paul Zenon’s Tricky Christmas, Paul Zenon’s Trick or Treat, White Magic with Paul Zenon, and Paul Zenon’s Revenge Squad.
He has appeared at several venues worldwide including Disneyland Paris, the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, five casinos in Las Vegas and the London Palladium.
