Magician to the stars Ali Cook casts a spell on Bury

Award-winning TV magician and comedian Ali Cook comes to The Met with new show, Principles and Deceptions, on Wednesday 9 October at 8pm.


Star of Penn and Teller : Fool Us (ITV1), Ali is renowned for inventing original magic effects and pushing the boundaries of what is possible on stage. His irreverent persona and respected 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.


“Forget what you think you know about comedy magicians – Ali Cook is edgy, intelligent, self-referential, caustically hilarious and one of the most sought-after illusionists on the planet.” – GQ Magazine


In 2010, Ali Cook’s live show, Pieces of Strange, was in the top 2% of best reviewed shows according to The British Comedy Guide, having received nightly standing ovations for the Houdini-style finale. He has also written and starred in many TV series’ including; Dirty Tricks (Channel 4), Monkey Magic (Five), Psychic Secrets Revealed with Derren Brown (Five) and the darkly twisted Jerry@Trick sketch show with Jerry Sadowitz (Five).


Tickets for this awe-inspiring event are £10 and the show is recommended for those aged 14+. For more information or to book phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
