Epic card stunts - this isn't a magic show, it's a skill
An Adelaide Fringe first, Card Ninja has arrived at the Garden of Unearthly Delights from 15 February to 3 March 2019 in the Corona Theatre. Direct from sold-out shows at Edinburgh Fringe in 2017-18, Card Ninja delivers on its promise to bring upbeat humour, impressive cardistry and unfailingly smooth audience interaction for the whole family.

Javier Jarquin, an award-winning stand up comedian from New Zealand, is the man behind the cards. Expect to find this show filled with ninja skills, madcap comedy and epic card stunts.

I haven't laughed this much in a while. From both Javier's quick wit and banter with the audience, to the people of all ages giggling all around me, Javier knew how to entertain the crowd and keep energy levels at the max.

I really don't want to give too much of the show away - I think half the fun is heading there and discovering the journey Javier takes you on in this well curated performance.

For all-ages fans of ninjas and cards, or if you have kids - this is a show you're going to want to see. My only word of warning - it isn't a magic show, and he makes this very clear at the start. It's not magic card tricks, it's card stunts. By the end of the show, he even had me wanting to crack out a deck and start practising.
