The Card Shark Show starring Steve Truglia


The longest running magic show in London’s West End!


The Card Shark Show is now in it’s third year, in very heart of London’s West End. Our stunning intimate venue brings the close up to each audience member.


Now showing in the sumptuous 5 star luxury, intimate private theatre of the Courthouse Hotel, in London’s Great Marlborough Street W1, (nearest tube Oxford Circus). An historic Grade II listed building which was formerly the Marlborough Street Magistrates Court. Charles Dickens worked in the building in 1835, and many famous people were tried in the court, including Oscar Wilde, Mick Jagger and John Lennon.


The old courtroom is now the hotel restaurant Silk, and features the original judge’s bench, dock and witness stand. In the bar the original cells remain, doors open, including the cell that Christine Keeler was held in at the start of what became the Profumo Affair in the 1960′s. The theatre space hold only 96 people, making the show a truly intimate and personal experience. A fitting venue to explore the crooked ways of gambling cheats and con artists.

What the critics said about The Card Shark Show:

‘And what a joy it is to see the master at work. Famed for his sleight of hand, Truglia explains the evolution of cardistry from the toolbox of the gambling cheat to the close-up table of the magician. If you want to see a specialist skill elevated to the highest level, buy a ticket to the Card Shark Show.’ – GQ Magazine


‘Award-winning close-up magician Steve Truglia says no one will leave his Card Shark Show without going “Wow!” and he’s right. Enthralling and intriguing, his sleight of hand is clean as a whistle.Is there anyone better? Truglia’s show is truly magic.’ – The Stage
