Principles and Deceptions
Star of Penn and Teller: Fool Us (ITV1), award-winning TV magician Ali Cook comes to The Met with new show Principles and Deceptions. Expect the kind of awe-inspiring magic and stunning illusion that knocks out some of the world's finest conjurers.
A Silver Star associate member of the Inner Magic Circle, Ali Cook is renowned for inventing original magic effects and pushing the boundaries of what is possible onstage.
In 2010 he received nightly standing ovations for the finale to his show, a Houdini style water tank escape so fast and furious that Ali wasn't the only one left gasping for breath. His irreverent style and acclaimed sleight-of-hand have made him one of the pioneers of the alternative magic scene, with an array of famous fans including Damien Hirst, JK Rowling, Minnie Driver and Basement Jaxx, and performances at premiere parties for movies including the Harry Potter series and Catch Me if You Can.
Ali has also written and starred in many TV series' including; Dirty Tricks, Monkey Magic, Psychic Secrets Revealed with Derren Brown and the darkly twisted Jerry@Trick sketch show with Jerry Sadowitz.
"A hugely impressive show that's never short on spectacle, genuinely astounding."- Chortle
