The Secret Cabaret 

 

This unique, ground-breaking series of 'dark entertainment', was originally conceived by Simon Drake. The collaboration of Simon with magic consultants, Patrick Page and Jim Steinmeyer, along with Ricky Jay and many more, helped to create some of the most visually stunning and shocking illusions ever to be seen in the history of television.

 

Consisting of a fast-paced mix of the bizarre and surreal along with traditional magic illusions, often performed with a gruesome twist, the still unrivalled Secret Cabaret was the first of its kind.

 

Both highly acclaimed series appeared on Channel 4 and earned an international cult following, as well as a Royal Television Society Award.
