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, performing tricks nobody has ever seen or done before, controlling coincidence, probing theories of fate and answering the FAQ: ‘Can you use this stuff to attract 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.

The Press on Fatal Distraction ‘Genuinely baffling… very impressive’ ***** Mark Shenton, The Sunday Express

‘Some truly astonishing feats of mind reading, slickly performed with skill and showmanship by master magician Chris Cox.’ **** Time Out‘Mind Reading with a twist, it was breathtaking and brilliant.’ The Guardian‘Extraordinary, forced me to reconsider my review star-rating policy, as five stars almost seems to miserly for this show…executed to perfection…stunning…so consistently astounding that the magical and remarkable became common place and customary…book your ticket immediately.’ ***** ThreeWeeks‘I had to cover my mouth to conceal the fact it was hanging open in a mix of shock and excitement…a bewildering talent…a world class act…a magnificent experience for anyone” ***** Fringe GuruBreathtakingly accurate, his predictions are a mongrel hybrid mix of psychology, magic, body language, influencing, comedy, devilish good looks, and lying. He constantly astonishes audiences with cutting-edge and highly imaginative stunts, charmingly delivered with a warm and mischievous sense of fun.Chris already knows you won’t buy a ticket, why not prove the geeky mind reader wrong?Please bring your mind for reading purposes.
