I had a blast putting on this show! Once again, Brush With Death was completely sold out well in advance of the show. The first show went off without a hitch on Thursday, and I had a great time performing my favourite creepy and bizarre effects. Based on the feedback from the Thursday show, I made a few minor tweaks to the Monday show, and was very happy with the result. Michael Berends did a great job as my headline act, performing a variety of excellent illusions from a simple but moving performance of torn and restored thread, to a full escape from a tiny little steel box, and plenty of impossible stuff in between. Feature performer Gwyn Auger performed an incredible feat whilst completely bound with 30 feet of rope.
Special thanks goes to all those behind the scenes who helped me put this show together; magic consultant and audio tech Ryan Pilling, stage manager Brent Smith, videographer Paul Spenard, promotional photographer Cale White (Phocal Photography), communications coordinator Olympia Lau, and the wonderful staff at Club Paradiso. Last, but most definitely not the least, the person without whom none of this would have been possible; Elle Nguyen – my website designer /executive assistant / graphics designer / ticket coordinator / personal groupie / favourite person in the world.
