Production Details

‘Subversive magicians Barry Jones and Stuart McLeod boldly go where others fear to tread. Watch and marvel.’ Scotland on Sunday
Winning ‘Young Magician of the Year’ competitions propelled Barry & Stuart into the public eye, and they were quickly picked up to write and star in their own television series, the Golden Rose award nominated "Magick" for Channel 4. Following its runaway success, they went on to host the comedy series, "Dirty Tricks," a live studio magic show which was then nominated for a Golden Rose at Montreux in 2006. Their weird illusions have earned them places in "The Twenty Sickest Tricks of All Time," (Sky One) "The Top Fifty TV Moments," (Five) and even a shameful place in the Ofcom twenty most complained about programmes on television. They have recently been commissioned to create exclusive content for BBC online and appeared alongside Derren Brown in “Derren Brown’s 3D Magic Spectacular” (Channel 4).
 “Unique blend of black comedy and impressive magic… plenty of audience involvement, engaging banter and obvious talent” [five stars]
Following sell-out London shows, Barry & Stuart made their debut live show ‘Part-Time Warlocks’ at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival which was a complete sell-out. They returned in 2009 with ‘Powered By Demons’, which received rave reviews, completely sold out and also enjoyed a 2-week transfer to Malaysia! Don’t miss your chance to catch the show on its limited inaugural New Zealand dates!
