Review: Comedy Magician Pete Firman at The SJT

Pete Firman

Pete Firman is a magician. He doesn’t do the big illusions though and you’ll never see him walking down a building, but what he does do is good old fashioned magic, with a comedy twist.

At the packed SJT earlier this month, Pete held the audience captivated and entertained for over an hour, with his special brand of magic.

He comes across as a cheeky chappie, who charms the ladies, and wows the men, with his quick fire routine, honed by years on the comedy circuit. He is immensely likeable, and had his audience in gales of laughter throughout his set.

The McCarthy auditorium is small and intimate and there is no hiding place, for any dodgy tricks, but Pete Firman never put a foot wrong and I, for one, had no idea how he did any of his tricks.

He swallowed a balloon, put a sword through someone’s neck, made cards appear out of thin air and made three wedding rings join together.

Pete used to work in the bar at the SJT, so it was extra special to see him back in Scarborough.

Scarborough is so lucky to have such a world class theatre as the SJT, and it was both a pleasure and a privilege to see a young man, clearly enjoying his craft, and to be a small part of such a magical evening.
