    Age 45
    In August 2014 Klok will go on tour with The New Houdini in the Netherlands for the last time.
    More Details Hide Details A week after the opening of The Beauty of Magic, Klok and Pamela 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. Klok later admitted in a QVegas Magazine interview that the rumors were a publicity ploy and that he had been in a relationship with partner Frank for 16 years.
    On 26 January 2014 Klok won the Silver Clown at the 38th International Circus Festival of Monte Carlo.
    More Details Hide Details He is the first illusionist to ever win this award.

    During the same visit, he also performed at Stella McCartney's London Fashion Week 2012 party-themed fashion show.
    More Details Hide Details There, he entertained the invited VIP guests with a number of tricks and illusions, including the levitation and sawing in half of TV presenter and model Alexa Chung. When interviewed on the Channel 5 talk show LIVE with Gabby, he revealed that his appearance at the Stella McCartney show came about after model Kate Moss saw his appearance on BBC TV's The One Show publicising his UK visit and suggested to McCartney that she should feature him in her show. The original plan for his appearance at McCartney's show was that Moss was to act as his assistant, and she spent several days working with him to rehearse the levitation and sawing illusions, plus a third illusion (not performed in the final show) in which she was beheaded by a guillotine. However, she was unable to perform in the show after suffering a temporary paralysis of her right arm a few days beforehand, and so Chung stepped in at short notice to replace her.
    In February and March 2012, Klok visited the UK with his stage show The Houdini Experience, playing a five-week run.
    More Details Hide Details During the press night at the Peacock Theatre in London, he amazed the audience of celebrity guests when he invited actress Louisa Lytton up onto the stage and, without any prior rehearsal, sawed her in half in his Clearly Impossible illusion.
