Paul Lelekis is the 2011-2012 winner of The Howard Bamman Trophy for The Linking Ring magazine and he is a consultant, reviewer and writer for The Linking Ring. Paul has had three of his effects published in J. K. Hartman's latest best-selling book, Card Dodgery. Paul has been "underground" for many years and wishes to share his effects and accumulated knowledge of magic and performing. With 28 years of steady restaurant work, 35 years of bar experience, corporate shows, community shows, many, many 3-day festivals - and of course, hundreds and hundreds of children's birthday parties Paul has quite a bit of experience to share. Paul's magic has been featured in many periodicals and magic newsletters around the world. Paul has been honored with seven One-Man Parades in the Linking Ring magazine, 3 Mini-Parades, and he wrote and conducted a Ring Parade for ring 42 in Clearwater...and at the time, ring 42 was the third largest ring in the world with often 200 members in attendance.

Paul has been on the I.B.M. Public Relations Committee for years, having once served as as the Committee Chairman. He was also lecture chairman for the 2001 Florida Magician's Convention - he performed regularly for the WWC Wrestlers and the American Gladiators. Paul had a book called Maximum Impact in the late 1990's.

"When I met Paul many years ago I was struck by his intensity. He was deeply interested in the potential “horse-power” of strong or subtle methods. He sought ideas that drive magic past thresholds of self-satisfaction, and whenever he performs you detect this energy. Paul embodies the spirit of the hard-core professional. He never stops mulling over ways to vary, tweak, modify, and perhaps improve every aspect of what he does. I am pleased to call him my friend." - Jon Racherbaumer

"Paul Lelekis is a real magician. He makes his living performing for laymen, and as a result, has a keen sense of what really fools a room full of laypeople. His tricks are entertaining, fun to watch and always pack a wallop! He’s one of the most knowledgeable guys I know! If you want to learn how to make a living doing magic, listen to what he has to say. You won’t be disappointed!" - Jim Swain (magician & author)

Quote from Windy & Sunny “Paul’s card magic will blow you away!”

"…it's hard to imagine another magician with the same combination of technique, entertaining skills and enthusiasm, and I have little doubt that this unique combination of ingredients comes through, radiantly, in his performances. As a personal side-note, his card magic has provided many sources of inspiration for my own thinking over the years, and I'm certain it will have the same effect on others." - J. K. Hartman
