You wouldn’t know it by looking at them, but college professors Derrick Chung and Grant McSorley are experts at deception. Though by day their job is to share their abundance of knowledge of math and engineering, by night their only goal is to surprise and delight with mysteries too impossible to explain.

Two of the most well-known figures in the Montreal magic community, for the past decade they have have spent the last decade comfortable in the shadows behind the scenes working with some of the world’s greatest magicians, working behind the scenes to produce shows for the public and private events for other magicians.

But last year, they stepped into the limelight. Their show “Magic Hour” was one of the hottest tickets at the 2016 Montreal Fringe festival with five sold-out shows.

Now the contemplative conjurer Chung returns to the Fringe stage with the debut of a brand new show “The Chung and Co. Mystery Hour” at the 2017 Montreal Fringe Festival, with partner Grant McSorley back behind the scenes as consultant, and the return of the multi-talented director Marc Trudel.
