Magician and illusionist Ben Hart is taking his critically-acclaimed show, The Outsider, to The Warren, Brighton on May 24.
Directed by Anthony Owen, the man behind Derren Brown’s TV programmes, The Outsider is a ‘hugely-entertaining and original show that brims full of magic, brilliant sleight of hand, and sensational special effects and illusions’, the promoters promise.
Spokeswoman Gemma Feeney said: “Ben’s performance is made ever more charismatic as it is interwoven with a biographical narrative that alludes to his lifelong feelings of detachment.
“Ben will also be starring in brand new BBC3 programme Killer Magic, in which five young magicians compete against each other in a series of tasks, in the hope of avoiding having to face a killer trick – a notorious illusion or magic trick that has jeopardised the lives of those who have tried to perform it though out history.
“Through his talent and powerful story-telling, Ben has already won many prestigious awards, including the highest award attainable through examination, the Associate of The Inner Magic Circle with Silver Star Award.”
He also scooped the Magic Circle’s Young Magician of the Year in 2007. Ben has also appeared on TV shows, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (BBC1) and The Dare (BBC1).
