Since performing dubious exercises with animals in Dirty Tricks, Pete has starred in The Magicians and Derren Brown’s 3D Magic Spectacular. He’s also performed with Rihanna, stormed Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival and produced his first book: Tricks To Freak Out Your Friends. Described by The Telegraph as ‘the new poster-boy for British comedy magic,’ Pete is about to set off on tour in Trickster.


Biography

Magician and comedian Pete Firman first burst onto our television screens as the cheeky Northerner 'Tufty' in Channel 5’s Monkey Magic. Since then, he’s appeared on Tonight at The London Palladium (ITV1), The Next Great Magician (ITV1), The Magicians (BBC1) and Let’s Sing & Dance For Comic Relief (BBC1). He also appears in the second season of Amazon’s hit show Good Omens alongside David Tennant and Michael Sheen.

Other TV credits include The John Bishop Show (BBC1), Tommy Cooper Forever (ITV1) and The Sarah Millican Television Programme (BBC2). Pete has performed alongside Rihanna in For One Night Only, presented gameshows and appeared on Celebrity Mastermind (specialist subject, appropriately - The Life of Tommy Cooper.) He also presented his own show, Pete Firman’s World of Magic for BBC Radio 4.

Pete has performed to sell out crowds at the Edinburgh Festival and on tour in the UK for over a decade as well as performing at Montreal’s prestigious Just For Laughs Festival, at the world famous Magic Castle in LA and London’s home of mystery, The Magic Circle.

Pete combines traditional tricks (often with an ironic twist) with off-beat humour and a sense of unpredictability. A naturally gifted performer and magician, Pete has been credited with helping reinvent magic taking it from its dated showbiz past to a new audience more familiar with standup comedy.
