The most amazing show!! The guys are all incredibly talented, and are seamless together - really entertaining and I can't recommend the show enough. Well done guys on producing such an incredible show. I'm still in shock over the tricks!

Rebecca Lythe 93 days ago

Awesome- amazing magicians. Hope they find huge success.

Jamie Macpherson 97 days ago

Great show, great fun, amazing tricks, a must see BUT got home to find the cards we bought only had 49 cards!

Philip Crosson 97 days ago

A great show from entertainers that don't take themselves too seriously. Loved the informality and comedy - they clearly were enjoying themselves and having fun. The hour flew by from some amazing illusions. Arrive early to join the queue if you want seats near the front although there's no bad seats at this venue

Lesley Sullivan 98 days ago

Wow this is magic at its best. Have no idea how they did the tricks but all executed so professionally and humour. Well worth the money.

Gord 98 days ago

Enjoyable magic show by likeable engaging guys. No idea how they did their tricks - especially the ones with the audience participations. Hope they are able to get a bigger venue for the future as it looks like most days are selling out!

Rayna_Nions 99 days ago

Absolutely Insane magic - at some point us as the audience perfrom a trick on our own....and it works! They did SO many crazy things i still can't figure out. If they're sold out for this year, I would definitely check them out next year!

Rebecca 99 days ago

Absolutely incredible! I love magic but this was off the charts. Highly recommend for all.

Victoria Izatt-Lowry 99 days ago

1 Hour of Insane Magic definitely delivers!

Understandably this show has sold out every single night of the Fringe, and this is due to the excellence of the three performers.

A stunning mix of magical talent and comedy, the show is a masterclass of how to impress your audience. The charisma of all 3 performers was fantastic, and it’s particularly great when they all work together.

Elliot Bibby is a particular highlight, and his crowd work skills are top notch. No wonder he is a highly sought after magician for events and weddings!

If you get the chance to see this show, go! It’s amazing.

It is totally Insane Magic! If you haven’t seen this show, you’ll probably be hard pushed to get tickets as it’s been sold out throughout August. But well worth seeing it once it goes on tour!

Derek Maltby 100 days ago

What star performers with a great sense of humour these three experts are! The hour went so quickly and at no time could we work out how they achieved what they did! All tricks were incredibly memorable but some stick in the mind and you cannot understand how they pulled them off.

Without giving it away, the mind reading, the lottery numbers, the block of ice and the paint were all amazing!

Thank you for entertaining us with your incredible talent

Linda Hathaway 100 days ago

Great show! Really enjoyed it and still wondering how they did it!?

Cheryl Lyon 100 days ago

Great show with lots of ‘how did they do that moments’!
We really enjoyed it.

Tiago 101 days ago

I came to see this show after experiencing Luke Osey in one of his solo shows and holy damn, it did not disappoint. Not only are these three magicians absolutely fantastic, but they also have an energy that makes the joint show an absolute joy. If you’re a fan of magic, look no further, and if you’re a fan of fun and comedy this may be equally up your alley!

Niamh Bagnell 101 days ago

We had a lot of fun at this show. Lots of crowd interaction, very likeable guys. Loved it!!!

Elizabeth 102 days ago

Two excellent magicians let down by one very mediocre one , yes you saw the wine bottle come out of his jacket not from inside the balloon, the credit card swap , oh the floor is wet let's get this very bulgy cloth passed from back stage , and how badly can l palm these cards to make them move from one side of the stage to the other. Come on you need to be alot slicker.
Much better value magic available at the fringe

Jonathan Hassell 103 days ago

Liv H 104 days ago

Amazing show! Such talented guys. The kids loved it… the adults loved it… if you are looking for a show suitable for everyone in the family, you need to buy tickets. (Even my very sceptical teenager thought it was brilliant!)

Katie Vince 105 days ago

Sandra C 106 days ago

We all loved it- go see them! The variety across the trio is amazing and we were truly amazed by the magic.

Erica and George 106 days ago

We loved this show! Such a buzz! The 3 guys host it brilliantly and interact with the crowd in a warm but professional way. Some very clever tricks. Great family show. I would highly recommend booking early. Don’t miss it! 5 stars from us!

Jayne 106 days ago

Just spent an entertaining hour watching three talented magicians put on a great, professional show. Very funny and charismatic guys. I especially enjoyed the amazing tricks with a lottery ticket prediction, and a disappearing credit card. Go and see the show if you can but book in advance as each night seems to be a sell out. Oh, and if you get picked to go up on stage to find your credit card, be very careful if you are handed a hammer!! (No credit cards knowingly harmed in this act).

Marc O'Brien 106 days ago

What a show! I know they are tricks but it seems like magic.

Go and see these guys

Adam G 110 days ago

This show was slightly boring and underwhelming. I expected a cool range of illusions, but was mostly some easy to figure out tricks and boring mind reading attempts.

One trick with cards, me and my wife has no idea what was going on.

David Batchelor 110 days ago

Excellent magic show. Really enjoyed it as did my two teen boys. Definitely recommend.

Saw these 3 guys this evening at Edinburgh Fringe. They were absolutely amazing. We were sat on the front row and still have no idea how they did their illusions. Great characters and good audience participation. Well worth checking out this show.
