October 19th Magic Night goes spooky
Time: 7.45pm (Doors 7pm) - At: Madame Jojo's
Tickets: £12 or £25 show and meal ticket for one.
Magic Night does a sťance, table flying, rockíníroll tricks, floating balls and ukeís!
Clouds of heavy objects defy the laws of gravity especially in the hands of master illusionist Oliver Tabor, whilst Matt Hennem bewitches his liquid crystal ball into a life of itís own as he moonwalks and dances around it. Tricity Vogue strums up a saucy storm and Pete Hathway performs some of the coolest, funniest tricks this side of a magician.
And In the Spirit of the season we will be contacting the dead. Award winning 'Psychic' Comedian Pete Antoniou will attempt to contact the spirits from beyond. Pete will attempt to bridge the gap between the living and the dead, all whilst asking whether spirit contact is even possible. Everyone knows ghosts can't really come backÖ can they?
All expertly presided over by Tommy Cooperesque Christian Lee.
NB Those of a sensitive disposition are welcome to bring a teddy.
Christian Lee -
Star of Sky One's 'Max Magic' and C4s 'Psychic Night'.
A modern day Tommy Cooper presents stunning magic that's not short on laughs. His bumbling, slightly inebriated persona whose tricks go hilariously awry leaves audiences guffawing. But don't be fooled, this is magic at its cleverest and funniest.
"Mighty Magical talents" Evening Standard
"Fabulous magic-riddled comic Christian Lee" Time Out.
Pete Heat -
Surreal, irreverent, and downright amazing, lanky charmer Pete Heat will read your mind, steal your watch and entrance your mother-in-law, all in the same breath‚Ä¶ Like Derren Brown crossed with Russell Brand ‚Äď in the words of the NME, Pete is ‚Äúthe rock & roll magician‚ÄĚ.
Funny, eloquent, slightly unhinged‚Ä¶ Pete is no ordinary magician and this is no ordinary magic. Instead of card tricks and dad-jokes you‚Äôll witness an invisible pizza, enchanted facial hair, a time-travelling Coke can, a psychicweasel, potential nudity and more insane tricks than you can fit in a small jar.
‚Äúexcellent at what he does and also very, very funny‚Ä¶ Essentially, the man‚Äôs what would happen if David Blaine was possessed by Noel Fielding‚Äôs sense of style and humour, with a show that‚Äôs exactly as mental and magnificent as that sounds‚ÄĚ
‚Äúthe Channel 4 generation‚Äôs Houdini‚Ä¶ The audience is artfully bewitched into an altogether unusual state of goofy awe‚Ä¶ should absolutely not be missed‚ÄĚ

". .Matt Hennem stole the show with his crystal ball manipulation act. This was the highlight for me, during Matt's performance I looked around the room, to see everyone mouths agape, in stunned silence.

A charming, offbeat, ukelele playing songstress with a repertoire of surprising tunes and a colourful history of romantic misadventure. Slinky, sassy, witty and cheeky she‚Äôs like Peggy Lee after too many cocktails.
