“Pick a card. Any card. Look at it. Remember what it says. Don’t tell me what it is. It says ‘when did magic become safe and boring?’. Am I right?”

Magic is not safe and boring, at least not in the right hands. Our shores boasts some mighty fine magicians not least Vegas favourite Piff The Magic Dragon, the “British Houdini” Alan Alan and Simon Drake of Channel 4 show The Secret Cabaret fame.

Vying to join their number through a cheeky video-bombing stunt is the duo Young & Strange. They have failed to fool Penn & Teller but they certainly mystified Sky News viewers this week with their impromptu magic display. Feel free to roll your own gags about politicians and disappearing acts while watching this.
