Review

Your audience will be left so gob smacked they'll think you've sold your
soul to Lucifer himself. Brilliant. -- Boys Toys, April 07

'the bastard son of Paul Daniels and Jackass' -- Metro

About the Author

Pete Firman is a uniquely gifted magic entertainer, gleefully injecting the genre with his anarchic, offbeat humour and dazzling array of skills. He was born in Middlesbrough, birthplace of another magic guy Paul Daniels. Pete was always interested in magic, fascinated by the ability to impress people that were bigger than him. After winning the Acklam Grange School Talent Show twice ("Yes!") Pete went to University in Scarborough where he gained a BA in Theatre. He had always gigged in pubs and bars as a magician. Hopelessly single and skint he worked part time for his Dad. "I used to sell cars, that’s where I fine tuned my banter!" Pete’s gift of the gab has stood him in good stead in the magic trade.

In 2002 he made Monkey Magic for FIVE. It was a new form of magic show, fronted by 4 magicians. It was short listed for a British Comedy Award and nominated for the Golden Rose of Montreux. FIVE quickly commissioned Pete and the other guys to make The Greatest Magic Tricks In The Universe…….Ever, one of FIVE’s highest rating shows. The second series of Monkey Magic aired in 2004 to critical acclaim.

In 2004 Pete and Ali Cook travelled the world and met his magic heroes. The Secret World of Magic aired in May 2005 on Sky One. Pete’s most recent project was Dirty Tricks, a studio magic show, with celebrity guests (from Stephen Fry to Mylene Klass), swearing and blood. It was nominated for the variety award at The Rose d'Or Festival.
