Following the success of sold-out shows at the Sydney Fringe Festival, magician extraordinaire Julian Bull is bringing his acclaimed show Mind Blowing Magic to Adelaide Fringe for three nights only at The Jade! Tickets are now on sale.
A family-friendly show, Mind Blowing Magic is set to surprise, delight and astound lovers of old-school showmanship and magic.
What is Mind Blowing Magic?
Julian Bull, the man, the myth, the legend, the enigma - this child prodigy will keep you entranced for 45 minutes with his latest miracles!
Julian's act is about a guy struggling to do his maths homework, who then starts procrastinating by doing magic tricks. In school, Julian's maths and science teachers could never understand how he would claim to bend the laws of nature to make his answers to their questions less incorrect than they actually were.
In the show, some of his magical delicacies will also be seasoned with song and dance numbers composed and performed personally by Julian himself, despite a total lack of musical training, education, pitch and rhythm (a mark of true boldness and courage). Julian is certainly an all-round renaissance man.
Just look at these testimonials:
"Stop emailing me demanding endorsement, you are the rudest magician I've ever spoken with" David Blaine
"How did you get this email address? And my phone number? Who do you think you are?" David Copperfield
Who is Julian Bull?
Struck by the magic bug at age 13, Julian has spent the past 11 years toiling night and day, 365 days a year, refining his art form in order to give you the most intensely magical experience of your life. It all started when his uncle made a coin vanish for him but refused to explain how. Julian spent the next decade learning magic tricks in retaliation.
When on the verge of adulthood, Julian was so confident in his talent that he dropped out of high school two and a half months before his HSC to do magic tricks on the street as a busker. His teachers maliciously marked 60% of his answers to their exams and assignments to be incorrect, an act of spite, born out of jealousy. But did Julian succumb to this obstacle? Many weaker people would have crumbled under the weight of such prejudice, but the magician valiantly struggled on (he later finished high school at Tafe).
Please, no heckling during the show!
Julian's masterpieces require total concentration. If audience members are caught harassing the magician, he will either send them a sternly worded email in three or more months or he will add your name to the list of his personal enemies, upon whom he will eventually have vengeance. He carries this list with him at all times in a small notebook attached to a necklace. He may even delete you as a friend on Facebook.
Of course, Julian is full of highly acidic spontaneous comebacks, he is just concerned that these will be too sharp. The magician does not wish to leave any of his audience members emotionally crippled by his show. Disclaimers will be issued before the start of the performance which you must sign if you wish to enter the theatre. His show may also cause spontaneous seizures, psychosis or ovulation. Watch at your own risk.
Choose from three performances: Thu 27 Feb: 8:30pm; Fri 28 Feb: 3:30pm; and Sun 1 Mar: 3:30pm. Tickets are now on sale through adelaidefringe.com.au and selling fast. Secure your tickets today. Tickets are priced $25.
All profits from the show will be donated to charity (i.e. Julian's bank account). Please don't heckle him about this either, he actually is a bit broke at the moment despite living with his parents and not needing to pay any bills whatsoever.
