Description

'Extraordinary' (Mirror). Viral sensation and star of BBC Radio, James Phelan presents a unique magical prank show in his Fringe debut! Troublemaker is a jaw-dropping rollercoaster of mystery and hilarity – from mind-reading outrageous confessions from unwitting audience members, to risking the safety of their iPhones. Nephew of the great Paul Daniels, James is now tipped as one of most anticipated magical performers in a generation. He presents Trickster: Live, the BBC's ground-breaking new radio magic show, and Celebrity Troublemaking, an upcoming TV programme that uses magic to get up close and personal with superstars.
