Luxury Magic – Dave Alnwick
Upstairs @ The Western, 9 June 2018
“an extraordinary bundle of ginger magic.”
When this extraordinary bundle of ginger magic bounced onto the stage of Upstairs at The Western last year I was blown away with his tricks and banter. This year he is back, prior to the Edinburgh Fringe, with a completely different show.
This time he has bundled together a load of card tricks which become more and more unbelievable as the show progresses. The patter this time is all about how psychology determines our life choices and, apparently, our card choices. As young Mr Alnwick would have us believe he lectures in psychology, I can well believe his assumptions.
He also demonstrated some amazing feats of memory.
He has a very charming, slightly bumbling, stage persona. Now, whether that is natural or put on to bamboozle the audience I have no idea, but it works like a dream
Dave Alnwick’s Luxury Magic show is on its way to Edinburgh and he has dates all the way up til then.
