Magic Night, with double-crossing mind readers, rubiks cube trickery, juggling madness and iconic appearances using paint.
It’s tricks for the mind in this show with Chris Cox, the mind reader who doesn’t read minds, be-friending and influencing you so that he can read your brains and casually announce your thoughts to the world. Whilst Harrison Richards, will use your eyes and an eye mask in order to solve the Rubiks cube riddle. He may even stand on one leg whilst doing this.
Juggling supremo and utter gentleman; Matt Riccardo throws, spins and juggles objects that absolutely should not be thrown, spun or juggled and pulls tablecloths from tables and nothing will move, whilst the paintertainer will be with you with is dark painting arts, conjuring up icons from afar.
All expertly compered by Neil Henry, one of Magic Nights resident mighty sorcerors, and we’re not kidding, he really is called Neil.
This show will be at the Shadow Lounge directly opposite at 5 Brewer Street this Friday temporarily but we will be back at Jojo's for the next shows.
