Be aware that this show is purely based on card-magic. There is an earlier show if you're looking for flashier material. But don't skip this one - Craig is a master of the misdirection required to make card magic work, and he can handle the audience interaction too, which is at least half the battle for a magician.

Don't know what LTW is on about but 4 of us went to see this show last night and we all loved it, we only bought tickets for this show because the show he performs prior to this one was so good, one of the best acts I've seen in nearly 20 years of attending the Fringe, and i've seen a whole of shows in that time, had me genuinely laughing out loud (i think the kids say 'lol') but also still has me wondering the day after just how he performed some of those tricks - and for what it's worth it lasted for all of the time it was scheduled for and i was hooked from the 1st to the last minute

I enjoyed the show, but it’s not the high energy show Craig has performed previously at the fringe, instead a show focussed on his start as a card magician. Some impressive tricks and a good finale, but definitely a show for the real card magic fans and not just those looking for something a little different.

Right up i would say I felt shortchanged as the show barely lasted 30 minutes!!!

I certainly didn't think that the show lived up to its billing, "exemplary sleight of hand skills combined with devilish psychological illusion". In fact, there was no real sleight of hand to talk of, just the usual card routines.

Above all, I think Craig didn't put in sufficient effort to try to deliver a 50 minute show as promised, somewhat taking his audience for granted - as if we were all watching a magic show for the first time, and wouldn't notice the standard card routines and that the show ended 20 minutes SHORT.

Not recommended and I hope Craig and the organisers take note of this as we did NOT receive the 50 minute show we were promised!
