Mysterious Moments of Magic – 2016 Edinburgh Fringe

I had seen two shows by John Henry Blackwood in 2014, so obviously I wanted to see his latest. As with Séance, this has him presenting one trick across the length of the show along with others, but here the theme is time travel.

As mentioned elsewhere, I can be a tough audience for magic shows, but here although I can see that the central trick is probably a couple of forced choices, it carries a significant element of risk – if a volunteer doesn't behave, the trick will be exposed – and is done extremely well. The supporting tricks, including those involving a tiny plunger and some screamingly obviously marked cards, are also done flawlessly.

Very definitely recommended.
