Mark Worgan's Klub Magic at the Komedia, Brighton
5th April 2004
Reviewed by Martin Breese
Mark Worgan hosted, organised and compered another outstanding magic show at Brighton’s Komedia Theatre. The audience seated at tables in true cabaret style enjoyed the juggling, wit and skill of circus-and-theatre-trained Mark Stafford.
Chris North and Belinda provided their award winning illusion act only marred by an interlude of card magic. I much prefer their fast and furious illusions.
Terry Seabrooke who opened the show left the audience crippled with laughter for nearly 40 minutes and although I must have seen his show at least 10 times, I again enjoyed every moment. Terry is off very soon to Hollywood to collect his Masters Award from the Academy of Magical Arts and there was not a person in the audience who would not agree that this is truly deserved.
Close-up around the tables was provided as usual by Steve Pratt and Steve Virgo.
A wonderful evening with compere gags and material from Mark Worgan and a well-balanced programme. The next show on Sunday May 9th will be part of the Brighton Festival and will feature a great bill: Fay Presto, Duncan Trillo and Safire. Be there if you can. (Martin Breese, Brighton).
