Dom Chambers stars in “RanDom” and if you think his name seems familiar, you may have seen his famous beer magic routine on “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” or even on “America’s Got Talent”. Truly, no one does beer magic like Dom Chambers can so if you’re keen to see that in real time (rather than a screen) then this show is the one for you (beer skolling included)!
I have seen previous iterations of this show over the years, but this one is the best yet – it’s more streamlined and has undergone some enhancements, making it quite the spectacle. Much of the magic is impactful, modern (or with modern themes) and some of it seems a little dangerous (which adds to the excitement)! There were moments during the show when the audience gasped with surprise (and relief and delight)! Comedy plays a great part in this show, especially when Dom introduces a special guest to the audience – that segment of the show had me in hysterics, and I had to cover my mouth to muffle my (way too loud) laughter! The audience all had a fantastic time, cheering and applauding all the way through. I’m hesitant to describe more about this show here, however I encourage you to see it because I’d be highly surprised if anyone didn’t enjoy the show – it is just that great.
VERDICT: Dom works hard for his audience, and it shows. If you’re not sure what to see during the Melbourne Magic Festival, then this show is a great chance for a night you’ll remember long after the festival has gone.
