Pete Firman spends much of his time on Britain’s comedy circuit or performing at the Edinburgh Festival. He has showcased his magic tricks on the BBC, ITV, Channel4, Five and Sky 1, including being one of the faces of Channel 4’s Dirty Tricks and hosting The Magicians on BBC1. Follow Pete’s instructions in his modern magic book, TRICKS TO FREAK OUT YOUR FRIENDS, and you, too, could scare strangers, amuse your friends and attract – but more probably repel – glamorous women. Michael O’Mara Books published TRICKS TO FREAK OUT YOUR FRIENDS, an essential guide to trickery and illusion, in 2006 and it was subsequently published in the USA by Chicago Review Press. Pete Firman lives in north London.
