Pete Firman: Jiggery Pokery (Phil McIntyre Entertainments by arrangement with Objective Talent Management)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

Blink and you’ll miss it – a single hour of this man is not enough. The ultimate cheeky chappy of magic wears his arrogance like a cape as he ends tricks with the occasional cry of “OMG”. Cards, guillotines, flying objects – all are brought together to wow us. It’s worth getting to the King Dome early to get a seat near the front, since the wonder of witnessing a table flying mere metres from your face is hard to beat. He’s at pains to point out that today’s audiences are hard to amaze, but with a character as strong as Pete Firman behind the tricks, they are not only pulled off with perfect ease, but made captivating and funny.

Pleasance Dome, 3 – 28 Aug, 8.30pm (9.30pm), £10.50 – £14.00, fpp133.
