A magical mystery tour with a difference is coming to Blackpool’s North Pier Theatre.

Comedian and magician Martin Daniels – son of illusionist and trickster Paul Daniels – will be appearing on Saturday September 29 and again at half term on October 27 with BBC Radio Merseyside presenter Andi Mac and tribute act Beatlemania in the show Should It Be Magic.

Martin has always been involved in showbusiness – helping his father Paul on engagements, working behind the scenes and organizing props.

At the age of 17 Martin made his stage debut as part of a summer season in Newquay and has never looked back since.

An accomplished comedian, actor, magician, writer and presenter, Martin has hosted numerous television shows including Game for a Laugh, Sooty, Les Dennis’ Laughter Show, Lingo and is a regular CiTV host. He has also appeared five times on the Royal Variety Show!

Andi Mac has been in the entertainment industry since the age of four. Before turning to a career as a radio presenter eight years ago, she performed in a variety of musicals such as Oliver, Annie and The Sound of Music and has worked with numerous celebrities including Cliff Richard, Bobby Davro and The Drifters.

Andi appeared recently as a guest on Penn & Teller with Jonathan Ross and has recently completed a four month tour with Martin and Paul Daniels.

Beatlemania are regarded as one of the UK’s leading Beatles tribute acts, playing to sell-out audiences throughout the world and regularly appearing on television and radio.

They have performed alongside artists such as The Searchers, The Hollies, The Bay City Rollers, Madness, Boy George, Kula Shaker, Blue, Snow Patrol, Coldplay and Girls Aloud.
