Time travelling magicians
2:50pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in What's on
UK time travellers, Morgan & West, who have successfully fooled Las Vegas magic legends Penn & Teller on the ITV1 prime time show, Penn & Teller: Fool Us will be flying through time to visit Theatr Mwldan on Friday 1 November at 7.30pm, to dazzle and amaze the Cardigan audience.
Penn & Teller: Fool Us challenged UK magicians to try and outwit one of the world’s most respected acts by presenting their best trick in a bid to leave them baffled as to how it was executed. Morgan & West were one of the acts who successfully fooled the pair and won a trip to Las Vegas to perform on Penn & Teller’s own stage at the Rio.
Morgan and West met whilst studying at Oxford, in the late nineteenth century. It was in that most reclining of seats of learning that the duo’s love of deception and legerdemain was born and they would have been joined at the hip ever since, were it not for the vast discrepancy in the height of their pelvises. Soon Morgan and West were the hot ticket in every music hall, touring show and carnival of curiosities that the Empire (and its colonies) had to offer, but their big break was still to come…
It was a chance find in the adverts section of Peculiar Past-Times Monthly magazine that led to them coming into possession of a prototype time machine (Tempus Fudgit inc. 1887) and with scant but a change of waistcoat and an industrial sized tea caddy for provisions, the nineteenth century’s greatest magical duo set off for the 21st century.
They have been working together since 2007 when they developed their unique brand of magic based on strong characterisation, original tricks and magnificent moustaches.
Great Scott! No future is left unseen and no timeline left unaltered as this pair of temporal tricksters bring a show brimming over with baffling magic, unparalleled precognitive powers and a totally genuine ability to travel through time!
The rest, as they say, is history. Or future. Depending on where you started.
