James Phelan – Troublemaker

‘One to watch in the world of magic’ ★★★★ - The List

Extraordinary! (The Mirror). Viral sensation and star of BBC Radio, James Phelan presents a unique magical prank show that is both jaw dropping and laugh out loud funny!

Troublemaker is a mind-blowing rollercoaster filled with mystery and hilarity – from mind-reading outrageous confessions from members of the audience, to risking the safety of iPhones.

Nephew of the great Paul Daniels; and with several million video views under his belt, plus a flagship BBC radio show – James is now tipped as one of most anticipated magical performers in a generation.

He presents Trickster: Live, the BBC’s ground-breaking new radio magic show, and Celebrity Troublemaking, an upcoming TV programme that uses magic to get up close and personal with superstars.
