Comedy magician set for Lancaster appearance

Award-winning comedy magician John Archer is set to appear in Lancaster after opening Penn & Teller’s show in Las Vegas.

The winner of ITV’s Fool Penn & Teller will be appearing at St Thomas Church in Marton Street on Friday, June 10, as part of the Ensemble @ St Tees series of cabaret café style evenings.

John is a two-time winner of the Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year and has been described by fellow TV Magician and Psychological Illusionist Derren Brown as “brilliant” and “hysterically funny”.

John will be joined on the night by local music acts The Howling Clowns, who come together to create a highly entertaining act featuring acoustic rock, jazz, funk, blues and soul and Imogen Mechie, who was a recent finalist in the national Young Songwriter of the Year competition.
