Tariq on Television

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Take 14 uncoordinated children, chuck them into a castle, give them a magic teacher, two weeks to learn magic, and see who will strive to get voted the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. This magical battle of the sexes sees Tariq mentor his seven-strong team of boys against an equally ambitious team of girls.

Sorcerer’s ApprenticeWill Tariq have the patience to teach his group of boys, and will he be the teacher with the winning student…?


The sketch and magic show that aired on Channel 4 sees Tariq performing his most up-to-date Freaky magic. From milking his nipple, to stripping naked on the streets of Bath for his prediction trick, this show will make you see magic from a new perspective.

Tariq flies across a hotel room like superman, pulls objects out of a television screen, and conjures bespoke items from an empty bag. His electricity-less light bulb routine even takes on a macabre new twist when, after luring his audience to a graveyard, the inexplicably glowing bulb’s explosion is proceeded by the terrifying appearance of the Devil.

It’s not magic… it's Freaky!

Playing Tricks

Is anyone safe now that the Playing Tricks crew has been unleashed in London?

The popular show was Trouble TV’s highest-rated show the year it was aired and repeats continue to screen on FTN and Challenge TV.

Tariq has appeared on several chat shows.
