Morgan and West, Victorian Time Travelling Magicians are the next TAVA (Touring Arts Visiting Audlem) event coming to Audlem at the Public Hall on Sunday 6th May at 7.00pm.
They are recent winners on ITV's 'Penn & Teller : Fool Us'.
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’ve 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.
The rest, as they say, is history. Or future. Depending on where you started.
There's much more really useful information on their website — click on the link below the photo, if you dare.
Ticket information for this show coming shortly.
