Mark Worgan's Klub Magic at the Komedia, Brighton
Monday 7th June 2004
Reviewed by Martin Breese
I have never been disappointed with any magic show organised by Mark Worgan and again on Monday 7th June, I had a wonderful magic evening. The show opened with fast-moving and very baffling Mind Reading from Graham Jolley. I have heard over and over again how good Graham is and when seeing him I was not disappointed. Mightily impressed I should say!!!! Heavily influenced by Al Koran, Graham is a worthy successor. Any mentalist who wants to improve his technique should study Graham. He is sophisticated and suave and reserved and then, without warning, breaks into his own kind of diabolical, off-the-wall humour. A great act!
Pete Wardell followed with magic transported from the street to the stage. His presentation is magnificent and his Cups and Balls and Hat is the best I have ever seen. Book this guy if you have a convention in the planning.
The finale of the evening was the magic and illusions of Martyn James and Company. He has a show and an amusing personality and some really baffling effects. This is a class act that can be booked anywhere from Berwick Street to Buckingham Palace.
Holding everything together as compere and resident trixter was Mark Worgan himself. Wonderful personality, great gags and brilliant timing as well. Mark Worgan is behind all of these shows and he is backed with resident close-uppers, Steve Pratt and Steve Virgo. The next show is on Monday 6th September and if you fancy a weekend in Brighton with a great magic show as well then make sure you are there.
