Mo Magic was a Movember Men's Health fundraising event held at The Governor Hindmarsh on November 26th with Comedy Hypnotist Isaac Lomman, Magician Matt Tarrant and Award-winning mentalist Vinh Giang.
The three popular performers came together to help raise $15,000 for the Men's Health charity. They used magic to create awareness of an important cause. The Movember Foundation is committed to changing the face of men's health including saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during November to raise vital funds for its men's health programs.
The show began with Deception starring Tarrant and Giang who chose audience members to participate in unbelievable magic tricks. Giang, the mentalist can read people's minds and even puts ideas in their heads before they've even thought about it - it's mind blowing. Tarrant's paper bag trick makes you gasp at the idea and has you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
Having seen these gentlemen on three different occasions I can guarantee no show is ever the same and each time I leave more impressed then the last. All I can say is "bring on the 2015 Fringe boys" - I'm expecting big things.
Lomman, is the first hypnotist I've seen and he has opened my eyes to the possibly of the unknown. Seeing him work with 13 audience members' minds in different ways was incredible. Watching these people move between their subconscious mind and what looked like them being awake was great to watch. He held the audiences' attention the whole time.
Having never seen a show, I didn't want to miss a minute, but now I'm completely open to being the person being hypnotised and will definitely look out for Lomman at the 2015 Fringe. These are three very talented gentlemen and The Gov was a great venue to host such an entertaining show that supported such a great cause. Both acts are scheduled for the 2015 Adelaide Fringe
