ED FRINGE REVIEW Pete Firman, Super Duper


Pete Firman returns for his ninth consecutive Edinburgh Fringe festival, with his unique mix of illusions and wit, attempting to make his audience laugh and scratch their heads in equal measure and inevitably leave them asking ‘how on earth did he do that?’

You know how some people are mad for magic? Well I'm not one of those, but whenever a bit of magic pops up on television (mainly on Britain's Got Talent if I'm being completely honest), I am always left with my jaw wide open and for days after spending sleepless nights wondering how what they did was done.

Often I'd come to the conclusion that camera trickery was at play, or that the audience are too far away to spot any slight of hand movements the magician might make.
