The Magic Circle Magazine – Magic Circular Review

As avid followers of my career and this blog in particular (or more likely, you have stumbled here by mistake), you will know that I performed in the Magic Circle Christmas Show this year. Not only did it sell out for 7 days with 2 performances per day, it also received a fantastic critical response.

Alan performed a selection of stand-up comedy magic and, for me, the most impressive element of his show was the way he combined strong magic with a lightness that made it clear he wasn’t taking himself too seriously.

It didn’t make the productions, disappearances and transformations of the thimbles any less magical but it did make Alan far more likeable and interesting. Alan also performed a strong routine in which he determined the colour of balloons popped by a spectator whilst blindfolded and a charming variation of the Piano trick with two children from the audience”
