Ridiculous Coincidence and Impossible

I'm afraid this review is going to be rather short. It's not because Josh is not clever and not because he's not talented and it's not because the show is not heaps of fun. It's because he is clever and he is talented and the show is loads of fun and I don't want to give any of it away ... so that's why this review is not going to be long.

That's shuffling!


Josh is only 22 years old but he's well versed in the world of magic. He's been crafting, practising and reinventing magic shows for a decade. Having had 10 years in front of audiences, he looks extremely comfortable and his enjoyment of the show is contagious. After a highly acclaimed season at the Melbourne Magic Festival and talent that has taken Staley across the globe - he's hit the comedy festival with a big abracadabra. Unlike some magic shows that can be deadly silent and very serious, this one is heaps of fun. The audience were aged between about six and 80 years old and it's perfect humour for everyone.

Very funny and very clever


Like most good comedy shows, there's a lot of audience participation. Unlike many shows, this is not intrusive and in fact most enjoyable. Josh has put in an incredible amount of preparation including organising many props to create intrigue and anticipation.

Guessing game


I dare you to go to the show and not be asking 'How did he do it?' at least a dozen times. It's a testament to our engagement in the show that my sister and I were trying to figure this out for at least half an hour after leaving the show. I also text her the next day to ask her how on earth did he do that card trick.
