British comedy set in the world of stage magic. Harry and Karl (David Mitchell and Robert Webb) are the most successful magic act in the country until a calamitous mistake during their guillotine illusion ends their partnership. With his career on the slide, Harry decides to enter for the 'International Magic Shield' competition, desperate for the prize money. Unfortunately for Harry, this brings him face to face with his old partner (and now worst enemy) Karl, along with an assortment of third-rate magicians who'll stoop to any depths to claim the prize.
