Pete Firman – an incredibly talented trickster and overall funny man, pulls off another spectacular performance.

He’s back for his 8th year at the Edinburgh Fringe Fest with an action packed, jaw dropping show. Firman knows exactly how to flirt with the audience’s imagination and keeps them drawn into spectating his every move. Sharp and always ahead of the game for us to notice any movement.

‘Trickster’ is even better than before, featuring a load more dangerous audience interaction, sharp card tricks, as well as his clever and mind-bobbling illusions. Nobody is safe sitting in their seat. Within minutes of the show starting, he turns the table and lets us be the magician for his first trick.

It’s an intense hour of madness, with satisfyingly funny jokes thrown into the potion. The way he puts on a serious performance and still manages to sneak in cheeky laugh-out-loud gags is exactly what I love about Firman. You’ve got to see it to believe it, go see his remarkable show!

Pete is an artist who constantly succeeds at impressing his full-house audiences. He’s a man with a suitcase of fresh tricks and true talent!
