Dave is easily one of if not THE best magician on the Fringe.

My mum and I return to his shows year after year and he never fails to amaze. Not only are Dave's tricks exceptional, but his stage presence and audience commandment is unmatched...he will keep you hooked all show!

I would highly recommend this show to anyone and everyone, even if magic isn't typically your thing, Dave is not to be missed.

I watched his show in 2019 as I was trying to kill time before catching my train back to London, and it was easily one of my top favourite shows that year. So when I realised he's back for this year's Fringe, I instantly added him to my must watch list for my first day back at the Fringe.

I couldn't understand two years ago, as I don't understand now, how he's not a household name. His magic is awesome, it's got variety, and above all it's so much fun. I've been a David Copperfield fan, and a Derren Brown fan... I've seen them both perform live from front row seats. It's very hard to impress me after that, because I make unfair comparisons. So believe me when I say Dave is worth your time (and your money). He's a wonderful performer, compelling and endearing. And his show is just an hour of necessary joy in these harsh times. Please watch this show!
