Mitchell and Webb - Magicians
Bill Cummings 06/03/2007
From British comedians Mitchell and Webb, the creators of the award-winning 'Peep Show' comes MAGICIANS - a new British comedy set in the world of stage magic. Watch the trailer here:
Lifelong friends Harry and Karl (David Mitchell and Robert Webb) are the greatest magic double act in the country. But after a guillotine illusion goes horribly and spectacularly wrong, their friendship and their careers are finished. Now, down on his luck and out of cash, Harry sets his sights on the prize money of the prestigious 'International Magic Shield' tournament. But to win he will have to compete against the world's oddest (and saddest) magicians - including his deadly rival Karl, performing under the guise of ridiculous psychic 'The Mindmonger'. Can new tricks and a new assistant (Jessica Steve nson from 'Confetti' and 'Spaced') help Harry to triumph over his underhanded opponents and his disastrous past?
Starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb (Peep Show), Jessica Steve nson (Confetti, Shaun of the Dead, Spaced), Darren Boyd (Green Wing) and Peter Capaldi (The Thick of It).
Magicians is on general release in the UK, from the 11th May 2007.
