Kevin describes his brand of magic as a combination of magic, science and adventure.

The show's theme is all about misdirection and puts Kevin's ability to hold your attention to the test throughout the performance.

"It's about how much I can control your attention," Kevin said.

"How much can I do that and how much are you willing to let go really.

"Overall though, we just want people to have a great night, in a safe environment and to remember what it's like to be back in a theatre."

The Edinburgh based magician initially started life as a research scientist before switching profession after his appearance on Channel 4's 'Faking It'. It was there where he received expert guidance from famed American magicians Penn and Teller. He also met his main inspiration, famed British magician Paul Daniels, on the show.

He has since backed up his illustrious training in magic by becoming a successful magician in his own right. He even has a Guinness World Record to his name after hosting the biggest ever magic lesson in front of a crowd of 1500 people in 2012.

Some people may also recognise the former scientist for his time on Britain's Got Talent where he reached the semi final last year. He is a constant at Edinburgh Fringe Festival as well where he has performed countless times.

"We're bringing a little bit of the Fringe to Hopeman," Kevin said.

"It'll be 70 minutes of amazing entertainment. It's fun for the whole family, it has great audience participation and we're doing it in a really safe environment. It's just a really fun show that I'd encourage anyone looking for a fun night to come along to."
