There are so many exciting things happening with EOM; one being our EOM DVD being in production and two is the fact that I am performing at the Adelaide Fringe! Woo!!! It's always been a dream of mine to have my own show! =D
For those who are not familiar with the Fringe, it is a festival that welcomes performers of any art from all over the world to showcase their talent. Of course, members of the public are able to buy tickets to see these shows.
FUN FACT: our hometown Adelaide actually holds the second largest Fringe Festival in the world!!!
I've been working my butt off promoting the show, even performing on the streets of our hometown and you would have seen the Youtube video we released recently titled 'Why magicians do magic'. I had such a ball and each time I perform on the streets it reminds me how much I just love performing to people and seeing their reaction.
Some of our shows are already sold out and I couldn't ask for anything more. I am so pumped!
Oh yeh! I even got featured on this article. Check it out HERE!!!!
I know most of you guys are overseas but if you happen to be in Adelaide! Would LOVE to see you guys there!

What can I say?.......We had a BALL at the Illusionists!
We were lucky enough to be able to go the the first show the Illusionist had in our hometown Adelaide. We've never spent New Years Eve like this so were VERY EXCITED!
With the connections we had, we were able to perform to the awaiting audience in the foyers of the Adelaide Festival Theatre before the show started. In return, we were able to get 8 free VIP tickets to the show and also the after party where we got to meet the Illusionists themselves and also countdown to 2013 in style with entertainment (live bands, dancers, free booze and finger food).
It was such a great night but the show was even better! The show had a bit of everything. From an MC (the trickster), to a grand illusionist to an escapologist. We enjoyed every second of the show. There's something about watching world class professional magicians that makes you just watch in awe. Of course Vinh, Jeff and myself knew how most of the tricks were done BUT the showmanship was just amazing.
Watching the Illusionist cemented our belief that it's the the difficulty of the trick that makes the show. There were really simple tricks that were even more amazing because of the SHOWMANSHIP! The whole friendship agreed that the MC the Trickster and the Anti-conjurer were the best! Their acts were hilarious because they brought up a spectator and just worked the crowd and really tailored they're performances to the audience and the spectator. There were many moments where they had to react to the audience member and the spectator and that was so admirable. We were definitely witnessing world class magicians.
If the Illusionists come to your town, make sure you see them! It has totally inspired us to work harder on our showmanship and hopefully it inspires you too!
Here are some quick snaps we took on the night with the Illusionists themselves!
