Fry and Laurie are Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, a successful English comedy double act mostly active in the 1980s and 1990s. Having met in 1980 through mutual friend Emma Thompson (whilst all attended the University of Cambridge), Fry and Laurie have since collaborated on numerous projects together, including Jeeves and Wooster in which Laurie portrayed Bertie Wooster and Fry portrayed Wooster's valet Jeeves. They have also gained prominence through their performances in Blackadder, as well as their own sketch show A Bit of Fry and Laurie.

At some point during their friendship, Fry and Laurie became interested in magic tricks. The pair were able to use their skills at card tricks to surprise and perplex TV host Terry Wogan during a televised interview with him. Fry and Laurie also worked with magician and skeptic James Randi on an episode of Randi's British television show. Fry also appeared on an episode of Derren Brown's television show where he was amazed by the card trick Brown performed.
