Born in Middlesbrough, Firman began his interest in magic as a child.
When he was eight, his mother bought him a magic book. He was educated
at Acklam Grange Secondary School, where he twice won the school talent
show. He then studied at Middlesbrough College then at the School of
Arts & New Media unit of the University of Hull Scarborough Campus in
Scarborough where he gained a Bachelor of Arts in theatre. Firman
performed his magic in pubs and as he later explained: “anywhere I could
get paid for doing tricks, basically. I figured I wanted somewhere a bit
more regular to work, and I saw the comedy circuit as something I could
explore. Because I'd always tried to make the magic I was doing funny
and lighthearted, and I never took myself too seriously.”
