The best show I’ve seen! Funny, unpredictable and all the magic tricks are simply amazing! Would highly recommend this to everyone

Absolutely superb sleight of hand and BIG on stage. Family friendly but not childish. His sleight of hand is top class and keep watching the bow tie. He's on the Free Fringe but is easily worthy of being a full fringe act.

Utterly enchanting, whatever your age you will feel like a wide-eyed child again marvelling at the impossible sleight of hand happening in front of you. Just joyful!

Absolutely brilliant! My 10yr old and I loved this. We didn’t stop laughing or being amazed. Highly recommend.

However jaded you are with magic shows, this will amaze you. It is all just sleight of hand, nothing else, but elevated to an absolute art form. Even knowing it is just sleight of hand won’t help you. You will see things literally disappear before your eyes. And, as everyone says, keep your eyes on the bow tie. You’re watching for it to disappear. But you still won’t see it half the time.

Incredible sleight of hands for sure... but a super personality to match!

Charlie does his magic the way its meant to be - leaving the audience leaving that they have just witnesses something truly magical!

Kid friendly as well!

If you only see one magic show, see Charlie! If you have seen a few others and were not impressed, see Charlie!

Incredible. Just incredible. I was in the front row watching closely. I was called on stage and was watching even more closely. I was completely bamboozled over and over and over again. I lost count of the times I and other audience members said “No way?!” Standing ovation at the end was diminished by the fact he’d dimmed the lights and then shot to the back to collect the money. My 8 year old also loved it and the whole family collected our bank notes together to donate what he deserved. DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!!
PS have £10 on you ready to give if asked. You won’t be disappointed...

Found Charlie’s show completely by chance and so glad we did! Fabulous magician who left us in awe of his skills, with a fresh approach and endearing presentation. Plenty of humorous moments throughout and thoroughly entertaining. Can’t recommend highly enough, go if you possibly can!

Charlie is an absolute first class act - no ifs or buts; easily the best show of a dozen we've seen so far... even if it's family-friendly! But there's no risk of disappointment: pay-as-you-feel at the end. And you will have the feels. I liked it so much I left a review.

If you were to ask every magician performing at Edinburgh Fringe who their favourite magician performing at Edinburgh Fringe is, you could expect the majority of them to respond in a heartbeat – Charlie Caper. A legend among his own ilk, Caper is renowned for being one of the world’s...
