Quick wit and clever tricks

You’ve seen him on TV, now prepare to ‘ooohhh’, ‘aaahhh’ and wonder how on earth he did that, as Pete Firman embarks on a national tour with his new show, Trickster.

The show comes to Brighton Dome’s Theatre Studio on October 11 (www.brightondome.org, 01273 709709).

Constantly pushing himself and his audience, it’s hard for people not to be flabbergasted by both Pete’s quick wit and his astonishing illusions.

Pete has a list of TV credits as impressive as the tricks themselves. He starred in BBC1’s prime-time Saturday night programme ‘The Magicians’ and his skill for fusing magic and comedy has made him one of the most in demand magicians working on British television, writing and performing in magic shows such as ‘Monkey Magic’ (Channel 5), ‘Dirty Tricks’, ‘Derren Brown’s 3D Magic Spectacular’ (Channel 4) and ‘The Secret World of Magic’ (Sky One).

He has also made dozens of guest appearances on programmes like ‘The One Show’, ‘BBC Breakfast’ and ‘The Sarah Millican Television Programme’.

As an author, he successfully penned his first book Tricks to Freak Out Your Friends, a beginners’ magic book for the 21st century.
