With three crackerjack magicians and a wisecracking host, there's no better recipe for a crackin' good time. The contest of voting for your favorite magician is rather cursory to the skills of the magicians, but the audience ate it up -- and so did I. It was like being at The Magic Castle without having to pay membership fees....
If you like magic you are going to like this show. Four magicians are listed but one becomes the MC so he isn't voted upon or does a 12 minute set.
Bring a smart phone with Internet access and decent reception because you get to do some voting online. And, from what I can tell, the voting is legit.
Three magicians perform a trick and you vote on which one you like. Then the winner determines the order and, at the end, you vote for who you like the best. You get to "Name The Show" by chosing which magician wins. All of the magicians are top notch so you will like something in this show. Definitely worth attending especially if you are a magic fan....
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 fee...
