His new show features a brand new version of the famous needle trick where he swallows an entire tin of alphabetti spaghetti, Yes, Neil will be pulling a rabbit out of HIMSELF. Neil searches for the most impossible things to do and then does them. Random objects simply named by the audience suddenly appear in their hands.
