Pete Firman: Jiggery Pokery
Magic routines with an enjoyable line in potty-mouthed sarcasm
This article is from 2011.
This comic magician takes his tricks seriously. From the opening escape out of a locked box through various sleight-of-hand illusions to the climactic guillotining of an audience member, Firman proves himself to be a very capable conjurer. But he also embellishes and undercuts his magic routines with an enjoyable line in potty-mouthed sarcasm.
