What I liked

Everything about this show and concept

What I didn't like

I wish this were longer overall and could see more tricks from each magician

My overall impression

This concept is such a fun idea! There are four magicians and three of them compete to win the show while one hosts. There are two rounds and after each round you vote via your phone for which act you like the most. At the end of the show, the winner gets to name the show.

On the day we went, Jon Armstrong was the host and Nick Paul, Simon Coronel, and Handsome Jack competed. I was familiar with Nick Paul and Simon Coronel (seeing their fantastic shows at last year’s Fringe) but had never seen Handsome Jack perform before. Everyone was great and this is such an opportunity to see 4 different magicians on the same show. This is like the sampler platter of magic shows.

Highly recommend this show if you’re a fan of magic and love that feeling of being amazed at the impossible. Also, Jon Armstrong has a solo show at the same venue, so check that out too!

I just have one question for this show, how does it work if Nick Paul is the host? (For those who don’t know, Nick Paul does not speak :))
