We are a family of 5 with 3 older teenagers. We watched this show yesterday and all really enjoyed it. The smaller venue made it a more personal experience and many audience members were involved in the tricks. The tricks were clever and became more impressive as the show went on. The magician was very charming.

Great family friendly fun in a small venue. Nice comedy touches with magic. Good for all ages

An excellent show! We came with a small group and most of our party was used as volunteers so it's definitely not plants. Entertaining and interesting, not like most magic shows you will have seen.

World Magic Review (4/5 stars) 94 days ago

This is John Accardo’s first time at the Edinburgh Fringe, but hopefully the first of many. Because it won’t be long before the crowds of Fringe goers discover that in a bunker plopped down in George Square is a hidden gem of the Fringe magic world.
