Daniel Kramer is being paid to play pranks on you

By Leon Symons, October 7, 2010

Daniel Kramer may be only 14 but he knows exactly what he wants to do in his life - and has already embarked on his chosen career.

Daniel is one of the stars of a prank show called Tricky TV on the Freeview channel Children's ITV.

"I knew my career would be something entertaining and not boring like accountancy," says Daniel.

"I started to do magic tricks when I was about six or seven and I still do them on my mum, dad and my brother," he says.

Now he is a member of the Young Magicians' Club, the junior section of the famous Magic Circle for 11 to 18-year-olds.

And this is not his first time on television. "I was on a CBBC show about three years ago."

So what is the new show about? "It's a mixture of magic and pranks on the public. We travelled all around the country, including Butlin's in Bognor Regis and a big mansion in the middle of nowhere. It had the most amazing views over the countryside."

Daniel lives with his parents in Totteridge and goes to school in Cockfosters. His family attends Shaare Tzedek Reform synagogue in Whetstone.
