IT WAS MAGIC AT IT’S BEST

·MARTIN WAS IN TOP FORM AND MADE A
GREAT OPENING ACT.
Martin was in top form and made a great opening act. Smartly dressed in a red shot silk suit (try saying that with your teeth out)! He fooled the audience with his balloon /bottle production. He then involved the crowd in some comedy banter then gave us some nifty card predictions. All presented in his own style which the audience loved. His years of experience showed in his gentle handling of assistants without them feeling uncomfortable. He did some very funny bits of business which I will not reveal as I can imagine the magical world and his brother will be doing it in no time! His last magical miracle was a slice of Tommy Cooper! He asked a very nice young man to join him on stage and placed a wine glass on his head; on top of this he rested a card, a tube and an egg. The comedy that Martin got out of this situation was hilarious. It was at least six minutes long but of course the idea was for him to hit the card which would move the tube and cleverly make sure that the egg would fall into the wine glass!! After proving that he was using a real egg the audience went wild. Martin is a BIG guy but the magical lovers showed their affection for him as he left the stage.
