Ali Cook is a master of magic - an awe-inspiring street magician, stage illusionist and performer of thought control. As one commentator put it: "As well as escapology, Cook does jaw-dropping Derren Brown-style mind-reading feats, fabulously dextrous close-up magic, gruesome gross-out pranks and magic tricks the like of which you've never seen before".
Ali's anarchic mix of comedy and magic has made him a headliner on the UK comedy circuit and he performs at celebrity events for the likes of J K Rowling and Damien Hirst. His 2010 Edinburgh show, Pieces Of Strange, was in the top 2% of best reviewed shows - according to the British Comedy Guide - and caused a sensation with an astounding Houdini-inspired water tank escape. His 2011 show Principles And Deceptions was nominated for Broadway Baby's six-star award.
Ali has already made a name for himself on British TV, having written and starred in a number of series, including Penn & Teller: Fool Us (ITV1), Dirty Tricks (Channel 4) and Monkey Magic (Channel 5), the latter having been nominated for the British Comedy Awards as well as the Golden Rose of Montreux. Other TV shows include Psychic Secrets Revealed (with Derren Brown) (Channel Five), The Secret World of Magic (Sky One) and The Jerry @Trick Show (with Jerry Sadowitz) (Channel Five).
