Evening of ‘booze magic’

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Card tricks, illusions and “booze magic” are promised at a dinner show tonight.

The Evening of Comedy Magic, hosted by Nadanja Bailey, will feature sleight of hand tricks performed by American artist Kristoff the Magician.

Kristoff, who has performed around the United States for more than 50 years, promised “cards, coins and cocktails” for the show.

He explained: “Booze magic is my speciality — there will be tricks that take liberal use of people's lack of attention caused by alcohol and I drink through the whole act.”

Kristoff will be preceded on stage at the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club by Mr Magic and Mr Slick, two island magicians who have performed for more than 50 years, combined.

Mr Magic said: “My act will entail some new tricks that I'm working on that haven't been seen by the public at all.”

He added that other wonders would include elaborate coin tricks such as making money appear inside of a piece of fruit.

Mr Slick promised an array of tricks from sleight of hand to mental magic.

He explained: “I intend to, as we magicians would say, ‘read people's minds,' but I'm going to get the whole audience involved.

“I'll be mixing it up a little bit with some small illusions, but it's going to come out very entertaining.”

He added: “One of the things I'm going to do I haven't performed in public for about ten years, but it's a classic and it will garner some oohs and aahs.”

The dinner starts at 8.30pm in the Harbourview Ballroom of the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club. Tickets are $50 for general admission and $80 for VIP at www.ptix.com
