Following on from his success in BGT, where in his words he was placed as “Top Human”, he was invited to headline in “The Illusionists” at The Shaftesbury Theatre in London’s West End In November / December 2015. The show took a massive £3.45 million in 7 and a half weeks, and entertained almost 18,000 people in it’s final 7 days, making it the most successful limited engagement the Shaftesbury has ever had in its 105 years in London.
Amongst other exciting projects in a very busy year, he was asked to film a series of tricks for BBC Sport, at football grounds up and down the country to highlight the “Magic of the FA Cup” which aired at half time of the televised matches in each round. The BBC also invited him to perform as part of “Bruce’s Hall of Fame” in which he was able to pay homage to one of his childhood hero’s – Tommy Cooper.
He was launched as the online face for Talk Talk, promoting their “Amazing things you can do with £10″ campaign. And a personal highlight, was an invitation to perform on stage alongside Sir Richard Branson at the world famous Fillmore Theatre as part of the celebrations of the inaugural Virgin Atlantic flight to Detroit.
