Full press release
Watching magic on television is one thing, it's another thing entirely to witness in person. Pete dazzles audiences with his astounding illusions and even more astonishing wit - magic and comedy have never been so well matched.
Pete's impressive list of tricks is second only to his long list of credits, having starred in BBC1's prime-time Saturday night programme The Magicians. 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). Pete has also fronted non-magic shows including Stakeout (BBC1), Wait for It (BBC1) and The Body Shocking Show (E4). He has also made appearances on programmes like The One Show, BBC Breakfast, The Sarah Millican Television Programme, Celebrity Mastermind, Gordon Ramsay's Cookalong Live, Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford, This Morning, Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, Comedy Cuts, Saturday Live Again! and Something For the Weekend.
Pete Firman is the author of Tricks to Freak Out Your Friends, a beginners magic book for the 21st century, which was released both in the UK and the USA. Pete has performed in the UK and internationally, including shows at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, which is by invitation only. He has toured the UK with five solo theatre shows, most recently Trickster in 2014. This year will be Pete's ninth consecutive year at the Edinburgh Fringe.
