Oddball magician and gasp-causer in chief Dynamo is set to bring his show to The O2. When Seeing Is Believing is performed in North Greenwich it will make Steven Frayne the first conjurer to play the tent.

Born in Bradford, Dynamo learned one of his first tricks as a reaction to being bullied – his grandfather taught him the illusion to make it seem to his tormentors that he was too heavy to be picked up.

Afflicted with Crohn’s Disease resulting in a small stature his affliction has not prevented him attracting much attention in recent years for his award-winning TV show Dynamo: Magician Impossible and stunts that have included walking on the Thames and levitating next to a London bus.

Known for performing tricks with celebrities he once levitated Matt Lucas four feet off the ground.

Various times, Tuesday, March 29-30, from £32.50, The O2 arena
