The World's Second Longest Magic Show!
Sunday, August 31, 2008
Last night we were one of MANY acts at a very unusual 60th birthday party. The guest of honour spent three years scouring the country for unusual acts and he certainly outdid himself!
The guests were greeted by a wide selection of strolling entertainers including a living statue, digeridoo player, snake handlers, the Presidents of the ASM and AIM, and even some vintage cars they could have their photos taken in.
From there it was inside the hall and, at 5pm sharp the show began with a drums and pipes band introduced by the compere Greg Evans. We had an Elvis show, cossack dancers, a Liza Minelli tribute, Brazillian Dancers, Warren Jackman doing comedy magic, a girl from 'So You Think You Can Dance', video tributes from AFL identities including Eddie McGuire and Billy Brownless, Australian champion breakdancers Wickid Force, Ben Price as Prince Charles, a 'This Is Your Life' segment with girls jumping out of a cake, a fire show from Chris Morant, a sword swallowerd, Earl Shatford juggling, a fireworks display from Howard and Sons, and of course Sue-Anne and myself doing a 30 minute illusion show.
The show finished after 1am and the audience was attentive for the entire 8 hour show! It was amazing.
