Described as a mix between magician, actor and comedian, Ali Cook will be presenting his critically acclaimed magic show 'Principles and Deceptions' in Brentford this month.

He is one of the stars of ITV1's magic show Penn and Teller: Fool Us and will be making a guest appearance as an entertainer in Mr Selfridge, the popular Sunday night drama set in the early 20th Century. And he'll be on stage at Watermans in the High Street on Sunday January 26, 7.45pm as part of his UK tour.


Ali has shocked and amazed audiences with his unique blend of inventive original magic tricks, pushing the boundaries of what is possible on stage. A Silver Star associate member of the Inner Magic Circle, he has received nightly standing ovations for his show ‘Principals & Deceptions’ with a unique approach and performances of large-scale illusions. 

His irreverent style and acclaimed sleight-of-hand have made him one of the pioneers of the alternative magic scene. As a result, he has an array of famous fans and has performed at private parties for Damien Hirst, JKRowling, Minnie Driver and Basement Jaxx, as well as premiere parties for movies including the ‘Harry Potter’ series amongst others.


Hollywood has been calling for Ali. Last summer he had a supporting role in Universal’s Get Lucky and 2014 will see the release of two more films – Epic and The Anomaly.

To performance at Watermans has 8+ age restriction. To book tickets call 0208 232 1010 or go to http://www.watermans.org.uk
