Last week, comedian Tim Vine was performing at the Cheltenham Town Hall. One of my friends, John Archer, is Tim’s opening act; he’s a fantastic magician and mind-reader who performs for thirty minutes before Tim comes on stage (he’s also one of the two magicians who fooled Penn & Teller on their TV show). John really is a fantastic performer and I’m pleased to be working with him on a couple of fun projects.
John invited me to see the show and then to spend some time with him and Tim afterwards. Also joining us was Emma Samms (of Dynasty fame) who asked to see me perform a few tricks.To make it an even stranger experience, Craig Revel Horwood and Brian Connolly turned up later too.
The highlight of the evening, for me though, was discussing my show with Tim Vine and then him writing some jokes for me! Tim is one of the quickest comedians in the business and within a second or two of telling him about my style, he immediately came up with some great jokes specific to my magic.
It was a fun evening and I was glad to have the opportunity to perform for, and meet some great people! Tim is coming towards the end of his tour now, but if you get a chance to see it, I’d urge you to do so.
