The second show I saw at the Melbourne Magic Festival on Wednesday night was one of the International headliners of the festival – John Archer. John comes across as a really friendly man; and I felt like his show was almost like a one man variety show featuring magic, comedy and music (via ukulele). The magic performed was largely comedy magic which (along with plenty of one liners) had the audience laughing throughout the show. I found the show to be light hearted and entertaining.
Verdict: If you’re not sure what to see during the festival, or if you’d prefer a magic show with some other elements thrown in then this is the show for you! Although this show is billed as a ‘family’ show, it definitely appeals more to adults.
