The wondrous, marvellous, magnificent, Morgan & West take to our stage this week (Sat 18 March) with two mind-bending shows (Spiffing Show for Kids & Parlour Tricks), chock full of jaw dropping, brain bursting, gasp eliciting feats of magic.
But who are these dashing, time-travelling rogues of the ‘magic-ing’ world?
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.
Morgan & West have been performing magic shows all over the UK and at festivals all over the world since 2009. Most recently they have appeared at Wilton’s Music Hall in London both in their own run of shows, have fooled Penn & Teller (Fool Us ITV 1), competed to be the Next Great Magician (ITV 1), and even attempted to escape The Slammer (CBBC) as well as performing for HRH Prince Charles and other such dignitaries.
