The star of West End magic marvels and big screen spectacles, Ali Cook, has announced a new UK tour for his critically acclaimed comedy magic show, Principles of Deception.
Taking its name from Arthur Buckley’s seminal magic compendium Principles and Deceptions – the first book to categorize every magic trick – Principles of Deception demonstrates Ali Cook’s skill as a historian of deception. In a masterclass of technique across a range of magic disciplines, Ali Cook defies the illusionist norm by showcasing a plethora of astonishments for audiences. Featuring close up magic, mind reading sleight of hand, suggestion, hypnosis, black art, misdirection and many more styles, Principles of Deception is an evening of magical invention and re-invention.
Principles of Deception became Ali Cook’s third sold-out show at the world famous Edinburgh Festival in 2011. The performance won him critical acclaim, and firmly established Ali as a leading proponent of the alternative magic scene. His other Edinburgh shows A Touch of Vegas (2008) and Pieces of Strange (2010) were also met with superlative reviews and sold out performances.
Principles of Deception tours the UK from 16 September – 11 November 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
