Ali Cook Magician

Ali Cook is a historian of deception. He's a sleight of hand expert, a street magician, escapologist, stage illusionist and performer of thought control.

"As well as escapology, Cook does jaw-dropping Derren Brown-style mind-reading feats, fabulously dextrous close-up magic, gruesome gross-out pranks and magic tricks the like of which you've never seen before" Steve Bennett, Chortle.

He has written and starred in seven British television series including 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (ITV1) 'Dirty Tricks' (Channel 4) and 'Monkey Magic '(Five), both nominated for the British Comedy Awards & the Golden Rose of Montreux, 'Psychic Secrets Revealed' with Derren Brown (Five), The Secret World of Magic (Sky One) & 'the Jerry @ Trick show' with Jerry Sadowitz (Five).

Ali Cook's anarchic mix of comedy and magic has made him a headliner on the UK comedy circuit and he performs at celebrity events for the likes of JK Rowling and Damien Hirst. For more information click here
