Barry and Stuart’s tricks of the trade

Described by Derren Brown as “The most consistently original, creative and exciting force in British magic”, Scottish BAFTA nominated Barry and Stuart return to ARC with their highly acclaimed Show and Tell. Split into two parts, the first is the ‘Show’, crammed full of slick, distinctive, astonishing, gruesome and brilliant illusions interwoven with dark edge humour. These are then followed by the second part, the ‘Tell’, where Barry and Stuart will exclusively reveal and teach the audience all the secrets and techniques behind the magic and tricks in this unique two-part show. Come be seduced by their sorcery and converted to the cult of Barry and Stuart for an unbelievable 90 minutes of mind blowing magic and spookiness.

With several TV shows under their belts including two series of The Magicians (BBC One), Dirty Tricks (Channel 4), and Derren Brown: 3D Magic Spectacular (Channel 4), Barry and Stuart debuted their live show Part Time Warlocks at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2008 and were an instant smash-hit with critics and audiences alike. They have garnered countless five-star reviews and played to totally sold out houses every night! Following their hit show Powered by Demons in 2009, they were awarded Best Comedy Illusionists at the World Magic Awards, and were flown to Los Angeles to perform in a one-off show seen by 12 million viewers on US television.

Genuinely remarkable.
