‘Tricked’ (series one) was named The Best Entertainment Programme at the Broadcast Digital Awards 2014. The judging panel said:
“The makers have taken a genre that already sits in a crowded market and pushed it in a new direction that feels creatively fresh.”
Series three airs on October 6th 2015 on ITV2.
10 years ago on the TV show ‘Faking It’ for Channel 4, I mentored a Scottish physics student for a month with the aim to make him a magician. That student, Kevin McMahon, went on to become a professional magician and in 2009 he created the Edinburgh International Magic Festival. Now in it’s 5th year, over 10,000 people attend annually, taking the opportunity to see some of the best magicians from around the world perform in beautiful Edinburgh venues. It was a pleasure to perform at this years opening Gala Shows with some fantastic acts. If you find yourself in Edinburgh next June/July, do go along – It promises to be bigger and better.
