Ali Cook is currently touring his live show Principles and Deceptions and will be at The Barnsley Civic on Friday 13 September. The show starts at 8.00 pm, and tickets at £12/£10 are available from http://www.barnsleycivic.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=663:ali-cook&catid=4:comedy&Itemid=8.
Ali has arranged with Civic to offer a concessionary ticket price to group bookings of 10 or more who quote “Magic Circle” when booking.
From the show blurb: Star of Penn & Teller: Fool Us (ITV1), Dirty Tricks (Channel 4), Monkey Magic (Five), Psychic Secrets Revealed with Derren Brown (Five) and the darkly twisted Jerry@Trick sketch show with Jerry Sadowitz (Five), Ali Cook returns with his own brand of awe-inspiring magic and breath-taking illusion. Expect to be genuinely amazed.
There are lots of great press quotes on his site http://alicook.com/, but this is my favorite, from The Herald Scotland:
Like a bonsai David Blaine, but not so smug and irritating, Cook does big things in small places.
