Talented duo have new tricks up their sleeves

A SNODLAND couple have appeared on the “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” Saturday night tele- vision show hosted by Jonathan Ross. Keelan Leyser and Charlotte Marie have

lived in Holborough Road for 18 months and their act is a fusion of magic, dance and a rapid change of clothes. Keelan has been involved in magic since

his parents bought him a magic set for his fourth birthday. Hemet Charlotte seven years ago when they were paired up by a mutual friend to take part in a dance competition. “As we danced so well together, I asked Charlotte if she would be interested in tak- ing part in a new venture I had in mind,” he said.

They toured the country with 110 theatre shows in 2006 and won the Grand Prix Award at the British Magical Championships in 2007. In 2009 they reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent. Keelan and Charlotte spent two years working on major cruise liners and 90% of their work is abroad. They have international agents who find work for them plus a man- ager. “ Penn and Teller were very appreciative of

our act,” said Keelan, “but we didn’t fool them.” He said he and Charlotte had been doing

their show for six years and it was reaching the end of its shelf life. They are working on another act which will be magical but not quick change and it is something that they don’t think people will have seen in the west- ern world
