The Secret World of Magic features Pete Firman and Alistair Cook, ace magicians and good friends, as they lead us on a mysterious tour of magic from Last Vegas to Madrid, Los Angeles to New York and Paris to Buenos Aires. On Pete and Alistair's road trip, we meet their heroes as they reveal secrets of the world's most legendary tricks.
Originally a UK TV show, this great series has now been released on DVD. It features interviews and performances by some of the world's greatest card magicians, including a performance by Juan Tamariz that has everyone completely fooled.
DISC 1: In Las Vegas, our tour guides wow the locals in a show of their own, and then on to Madrid where we meet a Spanish pop star who is an accomplished card magician. As Pete and Alistair perform their magic at a school an 11 year old student threatens to overshadow them with his unique brand of magic. In Los Angeles, our magicians perform at the prestigious Magic Castle, fulfilling a life long ambition.
DISC 2: Arriving in Paris, Pete and Alistair find that Parisians are not so easily fooled or impressed. Our magicians must come up with more than "Is this your card?" to get any attention. As we arrive in New York, the magicians talk their way into performing at The Big Apple's premiere magic venue before a sellout crowd; and Pete fulfills another dream by performing at world famous Coney Island. Our final stop is Buenos Aires, where we meet the world's only professional one-handed magician.
