Laura London is one of the world’s few female sleight of hand artists. Her card skills are exceptional as was noted by the critics at the Edinburgh Fringe who watched Laura London: Cheat, a show Laura wrote and devised. It tells the story of a female cardsharp in the 1920s who made her living cheating at poker. The story was brought to life with great story telling and Laura’s own incredible skills.
Laura’s interest in magic began when she was only 10 years old, when, for a birthday present, she was given her first magic trick by a family friend who just happened to be a magician. Just one week after her 18th birthday, she became the youngest ever female member of The Magic Circle. At the start of her career Laura concentrated on a wide range of close-up magic while experimenting in mind reading and stage illusions. Within 6 months of becoming professional, she landed her first TV show called Playing Tricks, a ten-part street magic series featuring Laura as the only female among six magicians.
Her other TV credits include ITV1’s The Next Great Magicianand Penn and Teller’s ‘Fool Us’, The Magic Party for BBC NI and Children In Need.
