Piff the Magic Dragon

Cute, Inspired and Very Funny‘ – Time Out.

Edinburgh Fringe Favourite, Piff the Magic Dragon is an award-winning stand up act, combining delightfully deadpan charm and stunning magic.

He has appeared in the West End as part of La Soiree (formerly La Clique), embarked on a sell-out run in Australia, and is currently on a fifty-date UK theatre tour as part of An Evening of Burlesque, selling over 30,000 tickets at venues including the O2 and Blackpool Grand. Piff’s recent appearance on Penn and Teller: Fool Us was an instant hit, going viral and racking up half a million views on YouTube in three days. He returns to Edinburgh this summer with his new show Last of the Magic Dragons.

A staple of the UK cabaret scene, Piff is a former Hackney Empire New Act of the Year finalist and has performed at The Comedy Store. He has supported some of the biggest names in comedy including Simon Amstell, Jessica Hynes and Stephen Merchant. In 2010 he was handed his own residency, Brunchtime at Piffanys, at Circus in Covent Garden.

Piff’s debut show, Piff-Tacular, scooped Buxton Fringe Festival’s Best Comedy award and broke the Edinburgh Free Fringe record for highest box office take in a single night. He returned the following year with PIFF-TACULAR 2: Get Rich or Die Trying at Just the Tonic, awarded ‘Top Three Picks of the Fringe’ by The One Show, BBC.

Every hero needs a sidekick, and it was during 2009 that Piff acquired Mr Piffles, the World’s First Levitating Chihuahua. Inseparable ever since, little Piffilicious now earns his kibble charming damsels up and down the country and relieving himself on any microphone stands that get in the way.

Piff is the creation of John van der Put, The Magic Circle Close-up Magician of the year 2011 and an award-winning contemporary magician for the past fifteen years. The hit of the party, according to Sir Ian McKellen, John is one of the youngest magicians ever to lecture at The Magic Circle, and was crowned IBM Close-Up Champion in 2009. He has also created magic for David Blaine, Heston Blumenthal and the National Theatre.
