Abbott & Costello - Comedy Magic Act

I have to admit, I'd never seen Abbott and Costello, one of the greatest comedy double acts of all-time, performing this very funny magic act. I've seen many variations on this Bottle, Glass routine but this, in my opinion, is one of the funniest and the best. Go on take a look - I dare you...

William Shatner, The Pendragons and what went wrong?

In "1988",  William Shatner hosted a live magic show, it was a tribute to Master Magician and Escapologist Harry Houdini, and appearing on that show were the amazing Pendragons - if you've never seen their act then you've missed a treat.

 On this show they were performing their incredible version of Harry Houdini's "Metamorphosis". This is a trasposition effect between to people. The assistant is locked inside a large trunk, often in a sack, restrained with handcuffs and rope etc. The magician stands on the trunk and holds up a curtain that will momentarily conceal his whole body. When the curtain is lowered the magician is seen to have been replaced by the assistant. Houdini took 7 seconds to make the transposition happen but The Pendragons (Charlotte and Johnathan) do it in less than 4 seconds. It's a amazing trick.

But what went wrong at the end? Watch here as William Shatner (Captain Kirk from Star Trek) explains, to Dick Clarke on his"Friday Night Surprise" show, why Mrs Charlotte Pendragon wouldn't come out of the trunk...

Why do people book Wedding Magician Andy Kirk?

So, why do people book Andy Kirk, Wedding Magician and Entertainer? There are many answers to this question and I hope by the end of this blog you will understand exactly why booking a magician is far more than just arranging a bit of entertainment for you and your guests...

Wedding Memories: There are lots of things that will make your wedding special and memorable, and a good wedding magician should only add to these. Andy will mix and mingle with your guests and perform his mind-blowing feats of magic and mind-reading right at their finger-tips. He will have them in fits of laughter and then leave them with gasps of amazement. They'll also be left with memories they will treasure for years to come.

Breaking the Ice: A lot of your guests may not know each other and magical entertainment, in the form of a wedding magician, is a great way to break the ice, get your guests talking, laughing and generally create a great atmosphere. So, whether it's during the drink reception, wedding breakfast or while the photograph's are being taken a little bit of magical theatre will work wonders.

Never a dull moment: There will always be those inevitable lulls; typically, while the photographs are being taken and in-between the wedding reception and the evening do. And these are two of the most popular places to use Andy's services, and he guarantees to keep things moving and create that perfect atmosphere for your big day.

Speeches are not for Children: The speeches are an important part of the day but if you have children present you shouldn't be surprised if the start to very quickly get restless. Andy has the perfect solution; he will whisk the children off - Pied Piper Fashion - and give them their own mini-party. This can include a disco, lights, bubble machine, games, prizes, magic show, puppets, face painting and balloon animals. And while the kids are having a ball, your guests - including those now temporarily relieved of their parental duties - can enjoy the speeches.

Every wedding is different and as such Andy will tailor his services so they fit your needs and budget perfectly.

In a Nutshell: Using cards, coins, rope, mind-reading and other everyday objects Andy will mesmerise, amaze and entertain your guests. He'll get them laughing, create talking points and leave them with some great magical memories. This is the most important day of your life so why not add "A Touch of Magic" and an "Extra Fizz" to your special day by booking Andy Kirk, Wedding Magician, now.
