The best show I saw at Fringe this year...the only one that sufficiently inspired (lazy) me to write a review. I would take anyone I could, anytime I could, to see this performer again.... full review

A magician can be great at magic but be a terrible performer. This magician was able to be great at both. Had a wonderful time! Highly recommended! ... full review

Henok Negash is an incredible showman. His apparent proficiency with magic and understanding of theatre blends harmoniously to culminate into so much fun. Please do yourself a favor and see this show!... full review

The intellect and wit of this performer makes you forget you're watching a one man show. Excellently paced and highly entertaining, I think I'm going back tonight.... full review

Henok Negash presents a wonderful show loaded with magical surprises! The conjuring is not forced - the audience reactions are genuine. We also get a glimpse into the life of an interesting, unique young man - who has spent the last three years living in Thailand. Henok makes the audience believe that nothing that happens in life (and especially in his show) is coincidental: it was "Meant To Be" ... Don't miss his terrific show!... full review
IZZY BRENES uncertified reviewer June 23, 2013
Henok was ridiculous! Very smooth and evenly paced show (it felt like only 20 minutes and I was definitely left wanting to see more). I don't know how he does it, but at one point, I felt pretty confident that people being asked to participate we're in on the show, until he picked me to participate!!! (Mindblown!) I highly recommend seeing this guy if you get the chance, I imagine we'll be seeing this guy more and more in the near future. All the best to Mr. Negash...... full review
LEEMAN PARKER uncertified reviewer June 22, 2013
All I can say is wow! Henok is smooth. The show was not only unbelievably fooling but incredibly theatrical. From the opening monologue about middle school to the revelations of personal facts and options Henok truly delivers on the magic and the show. My favorite part is the envelope thing. I won't tell you anything about it as I don't want to ruin it, but I am still dealing with the internal turmoil of it all. ... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 16, 2013
A great show! An intelligent presentation of thoughtfully constructed magical moments devoid of the typical pomp and feigned enthusiasm that often undermines magic performances. Told with cards and conjuring, Henok Negash brings a quiet confidence and skill to his legerdemain. Guiding you with his shrewd hands and turn of phrase, Mr. Negash offers up a brief glimpse into his life and learned lessons. A journey filled with surprise and mystery that hooked the audience from start to finish and left them amazed and bemused as they filed out of the theater into the night. Not to be missed. ... full review
