Magician and comedian, Pete Firman will be at Saffron Walden Town Hall on Thursday, February 14.

Firman began his interest in magic aged eight when his mum bought him a magic book. He twice won his school talent show in Middlesbrough and then studied theatre at the University of Hull.

He played in pubs until he applied to advertisement calling for magicians for a new television show, Monkey Magic.

He sent in a tape of himself in his underpants doing tricks in a friend’s back garden and was hired.

The programme was short listed for a British Comedy Award and nominated for a Rose d’Or.
