Chris Cook

Award winning magician, Chris Cook, is renowned for blending storytelling, comedy and magic tricks into captivating and thought-provoking shows.
In Scoundrel, he weaves the story of an artist, a forger and a magician into a tale that asks the audience: what makes something art?

“An absolute master of the stage and a testament to the captivating nature of skilful and surprising magic” – Broadway Baby

“A show that will amaze and delight with a poignant and brave finale that will leave you thinking well into the night” – Wee Review

 “Chris Cook regularly tests the boundaries of what can be defined as a magic show… He captivates the audience with his tricks and wit, but in the end, it is his modesty that is particularly charming. Cook is gradually making the world a better place one audience at a time.” – World Magic Review

Aimed at adults, suitable for ages 13+

Chris, originally from the Lake District, started out with small-time scams and cheeky pickpocketing. He made the transition to professional magician as a way to earn a more honest living. Beginning with some simple card tricks Chris progressed to sleight of hand, mind-reading, and stand-up comedy. These days, Chris will perform tricks with whatever you’ve got. Show him your wallet, phone, keys, bank card, spare change, wedding ring, wristwatch or shoelaces and Chris will astound you with something incredible. 

Chris has been performing his winning combination of close-up magic and quick wit for a decade now. He has worked in New York and performs across the UK and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to rave reviews and sell-out crowds.
