Broadway Baby

'It's fucking magic.' Pete Firman says this as a joke, but those three words are his show in a nutshell. Blunt, irreverent, and frustratingly riveting, Peter Firman: Super Duper is a manifestation of 'how the hell did he do that' in sixty minutes. Often, to enjoy a magic show, an audience needs to apply a suspension of disbelief, not because the magic is poor, but because you are rational. But in Super Duper, you don't need to try with your belief, because Firman has deftly claimed it for himself within mere minutes of walking (or rather, appearing) onstage.

A brilliant magical performance that will guarantee you an amazing night of bewildering illusions and breathless laughter.

Firman is the master of 'blink and you'll miss it' magic, a slick professional whose show rattles with hilarity and wonder. There are absolutely no seconds of dead air in this performance; he fills every moment with his pithy wit. Caught up in these bursts of intense enthusiasm and crackling humour, the audience is drawn wholly into his remarkable illusions. His tricks were magic classics, but done with such skill and ease that even someone looking in all the right places wouldn't see how they were being fooled. Not that anyone could possibly hope to look in those right places.

Firman interacts easily with his spectators, both in the case of his participants and of heckling members of his audience who might dare to get up in the middle of the show. (Oh how the tables turn.) His humour is harsh enough to be hilarious but not too mean to cross a line, and means that even if someone has stood up in front of you to sneak off the the bathroom, Firman still keeps full command of your attention.

Pete Firman: Super Duper is a brilliant magical performance that will guarantee you an amazing night of bewildering illusions and breathless laughter.

The Blurb

After sell-out performances in 2014, 'the UK's leading comedy magician' (Time Out) returns with an astonishing new show. Star of BBC One's The Magicians and guest on BBC Two's The Sarah Millican Television Programme, and Channel 4's Comedy Mash-Up. Expect Pete's trademark blend of crowd-pleasing comedy and jaw-dropping magic, it's not to be missed! 'The man from Middlesbrough sets the pace for comedy meets magic in the 21st century' (Times). 'The new poster boy for British comedy magic' (Telegraph). 'Impressive, well-executed illusions delivered with the same speed and lightness of touch as his surgically-precise one-liners’ (List).
