"I frequently heard gasps of shock and awe from the audience as they either realised what was about to happen, or saw a trick unfold in front of their eyes." ★★★★★ – Arts Award Voice "A gasp-inducing hour of mind-blowing magic tricks and baffling illusions." ★★★★ – Broadway Baby (2014) - 30 July: Kockov 'I'm speechless!' - Simon Cowell Kockov, the alter-ego of award winning professional magician Jasper Blakeley, keeps audiences on the edge of their seat with fast paced illusion, sleight of hand, tight leather trousers, and a mullet almost as magical as the man himself. With a unique blend of magic, mind reading and comedy, his Russian Roulette finale has to be seen to be believed. Prepare for more than just a few tricks - this is an hour of mind bending magic with lashings of wicked humour, which has taken the Edinburgh Fringe by storm.

Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. There is no wheelchair access. Please be aware, Kockov's show is over 18s only. Valid ID required.
