Hans Klok

Hans Klok

Hans Klok (born February 22, 1969, Purmerend) is a Dutch illusionist and actor.

He began his magic career as a teenager, winning several international competitions by the time he was 16. By age 23, he was part of a touring show with Holland’s top comedian.

In 1994, he played for the first time on the Las Vegas Strip, as part of NBC’s “The World's Greatest Magic,” broadcast live from Caesars Palace to an audience of 60 million people. The following ten years he toured Europe and China and appeared in Vegas once more.

During the opening of the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, about 500 million soccer fans in 152 countries saw Klok make the 18-carat-gold World Trophy appear out of thin air in a glass cage.

Klok has previously featured Carmen Electra in his illusions. [cite web

His latest show, "The Beauty of Magic," is a 90-minute production at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. It debuted on June 1, 2007 and closed mid December. The show included Pamela Anderson, who paraded onstage in a glittering bathing suit for about 10 minutes as one of Klok's assistants.

A week after the opening of "The Beauty of Magic," Klok and Anderson visited "The Howard Stern Show" and started a rumor about a possible romance. A month later they told "The Late Late Show" host Craig Ferguson that they sometimes "got physical" behind the scenes before their nightly show. The rumors of his supposed romance with Anderson made headlines in his native country, where it is common knowledge that he is gay [cite web
