Following a sold-out performance earlier in the year, magician Dave Allen is returning to Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre – but this time with his best friend Carl Charlesworth.
‘Magic Dave’ wowed his young audience when he performed at the Lake Street venue during the February half-term break, and on Friday, October 10, he will be back to perform an unmissable show with pal Carl.
Their fast-paced show, which mixes comedy, magic and illusion, will leave you gasping in amazement thanks to their mix of comedy twists and stunning trickery. And their on-stage chemistry is fully apparent, due to the fact that they are such close friends.
Carl and Dave have been touring their Not So Serious Magicians At Play show for the last four years, and have now achieved a perfect balance between comedy and magic.
This year the pair achieved five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival during a sold-out nine-day run.
The duo has received plenty of recognition for their show, and have been voted Best Comedy Magic Act at the International Magic Convention four years in a row.
Dave said that he is looking forward to returning to Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre. He said: “It’s great to be back at the theatre – I have performed there many times over the years as Magic Dave, including the Macmillan charity shows for the past three years, and other theatre events including World Book Week, but to perform there with a completely different act is very exciting.
“We feel that the show is truly one of a kind, not just in what we do by the fact that we have designed and built many of our illusions, but also the way that we perform them – our on-stage characters are very original too.
“Many people have told us after our show that they don’t normally like magic shows but loved our performance as it was so different and funny to an everyday magic show.”
