Young & Strange are international stage illusionists — a unique double act starring comedy magicians Richard Young and Sam Strange.
The pair met when they were 8 years old and their early childhood friendship was cemented with a common interest in all things magic. They spent their early teenage years attempting, and failing, to make Las Vegas style illusions with cardboard and tape. With little money, they were forced to innovate, creating original illusions and magic tricks. This soon caught the attention of magicians around the UK as an act to watch in the future.
In recent years the relentless development and innovation of their spectacular illusions, and live shows, have landed them spots on prime time television and the biggest stages around the UK.
Young & Strange have performed at the Edinburgh Fringe for the last 3 years, and the success of their 2013 Edinburgh show landed the duo the headline spot on the Champions Of Magic national UK touring show.
Alongside live performances in theatres around the country, they perform regularly at corporate events and product launches. They have worked for many organisations, from small independent businesses, to the biggest names in industry. Clients include Nokia, Audi, Nationwide, HSBC and Microsoft.
Young & Strange are both members of The Magic Circle and were recently promoted to become Associate Members of The Inner Magic Circle. This is the highest qualification achievable through performance examination.
