- Broadway Baby: The Alan Hudson three minute interview
Full press release
Magic, funnies and audience participation from one of UK's brightest comedy conjurers. No theme, no camera tricks, edits or bullshit - a collection of his bestest sleight of hand tricks and some new ones.
Alan Hudson is bringing his unique, original feel good magic show to the Edinburgh Festival for a 4th time. In the past the shows have had themes (a life story, a superhero and even one on how to get girls) - for the first time this year it's an unashamed out and out comedy magic show for the masses. PIN numbers will be predicted, audiences personal objects will get the magic treatment and the skills that pay the bills will be on display for everyone to marvel (for instance a manipulating thimbles routine to Boom Shake the Room).
An antidote to all the magic on TV. People are getting more aware that TV magicians are abusing the medium and that most of those tricks can't actually be done as they shown on TV - Alan is showing that magic is at it's best when witnessed live and without any editing.
Hudson is in an enviable position of appealing to a very large demographic - from teenagers, hipsters, families and grandparents.
Credentials: Associate of The Inner Magic Circle (so expect near miracles). From ITV's Penn & Teller Fool Us, BBC2 Culture Show and ITV The Sooty Show, regular performer at The Magic Castle in Hollywood.
