Comedian's Barnard Castle gig promises to be a magical evening
Comedian and magician Pete Firman is to bring his new show to The Witham, Barnard Castle.
Dubbed the UK’s leading comedy magician by Time Out, TriX will see him bring his trademark blend of crowd-pleasing comedy and jaw-dropping magic to the town on Saturday, October 1, fresh from his tenth year at the Edinburgh Festival.
His innovative style has led to countless television appearances on the likes of The One Show, The Magicians, The John Bishop Show, BBC Breakfast, The Sarah Millican Television Programme, Celebrity Mastermind, Gordon Ramsay’s Cookalong Live, Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford, This Morning, Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, Comedy Cuts, Saturday Live Again! and Something For the Weekend.
He is also an accomplished presenter, having fronted the game shows Stakeout and Wait For It for BBC1 and The Body Shocking Show for E4.
Having performed nine sell-out shows to date, TriX marks a decade of critically-acclaimed appearances at the Edinburgh Festival for the Middlesbrough-born performer.
Peter Dixon, of promoters Funny Way To Be, said: “Pete Firman last did a show for us in 2014 and members of the audience still tell me it was one of the best shows they have ever seen.
“His pace never wavered throughout the entire set, with quick-fire jokes and gob-smacking tricks.
“Folk were still speculating about how the magic might have been done long after the show.
“It’s one thing to produce great magic, but to turn the performance into a top class stand-up show demonstrates the huge talent that Pete Firman brings to the stage.”
Due to the family-friendly nature of the show, the event will welcome audience members aged 14-plus.
Tickets are priced £15.50/£13.50 concessions and are available from funnywaytobe.com or The Witham box office.
The show will start at 7.30pm.
