… Now with 10% more blood, and 15% higher insurance premiums! …
You never know what to expect with A Brush With Death, Calgary’s most bizarre illusion show! Dangerous stunts and creepy effects… perhaps a pint of blood or two?
Hosted by mentalist and shock magician Yeats Wong, this weird and funny show explores the darker side of magic: contacting the dead, exploring your fears & phobias, and having fun with all things morbid.
Every Brush With Death is a fresh show with new macabre illusions and freaky guest stars, mixed with classic audience favourites.
Mentalist and shock illusionist, Yeats Wong, hosts this evening of bizarre entertainment by exploring the darker side of the human psyche, and subjecting his body to gross but highly entertaining torture.
“It always sounds far gorier than it actually is,” chuckles Wong. “I actually think of my show as a comedy stage show, and, maybe it’s just my weird sense of humour, but I find fake blood really funny. If you can handle watching Hunger Games, you can handle the gore from Brush With Death.”
Combining a warped sense of humour with a creepy style of magical entertainment, he molds the evening into an unforgettable macabre event. Expect some freaky body stunts.
Perky Gwyn Auger brings her dazzle and charm to the stage… while Yeats and the other performers tend to stab, tie, slice, and abuse her in so many ways. Yet she takes it all with a contractually obligated smile!
