Pete Firman: TriX
Pleasance Beyond: 3rd – 28th August
Returning to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to celebrate a decade of spell-binding performances, Britain’s leading comedian/magician Pete Firman hits the stage at the Pleasance Beyond with his new show TriX from the 3rd to the 28th August at 8pm.
You’ve seen him on television, but Pete is one of magic’s most exciting live performers. In honour of his tenth consecutive Edinburgh Fringe show, he’ll be showcasing his most famous illusions and has a few new tricks up his sleeve. Expect Pete’s trademark blend of jaw-dropping magic and crowd-pleasing comedy.
Pete was the star of BBC One’s prime time Saturday night series The Magicians. His charismatic delivery has made him one of the most in-demand magicians on British television, writing and performing in magic shows such as Monkey Magic on Channel 5, Dirty Tricks on Channel 4 and The Secret World of Magic on Sky One.
Other magical guest appearances include The One Show, The John Bishop Show, BBC Breakfast, The Sarah Millican Television Programme, Celebrity Mastermind (episode winner), Comedians Come Dine With Me and Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live. Pete has also fronted non-magic shows, including Stakeout (BBC1), Wait for It (BBC1) and The Body Shocking Show (E4).
Pete is the author of Tricks to Freak Out Your Friends, a humorous take on a beginners magic, which was released both in the UK and the USA. Pete has performed in the UK and internationally and was invited to perform at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.
