Fatal Distraction is the fifth brand new show from the multi award-winning, five star, fringe sell-out, mind reader who can’t read minds, Chris Cox. He’s been on TV, toured the world and is somehow still getting away with it. Fatal Distraction has picked up a magical hat full of 5 star reviews and won the 2011 Venue Magazine award for best comedy show.
Chris will be doing things he shouldn’t be able to do with the fringe brochure, performing tricks nobody has ever done before, controlling coincidence, probing theories of fate and answering the FAQ: ‘Can you use this stuff on girls?’. Determined to deliver the most satisfying hour possible Chris will be handing control over to his audience by giving them the power to control his actions with their minds. Cox manages to mix a love based narrative with some of the most unique and incredible mind-reading effects ever seen on the stage.

He Can’t Read Minds?
BBC Radio 1′s resident magician takes magic into the new world of technology. His props are the stuff of the 21st century – no magic wand, no fez – but he does have big feet.
This is a completely unique and new form of mind reading. – even though he says he can’t read minds! A fully interactive – and funny – multi-media theatrical experience, it’s also funny – encompassing (funny) mind reading, (funny) magic, psychology and comedy (the comedy’s not too hot but everything else is funny).
