World-famous illusionist Brett Sparks brings his show to the Winnipeg Fringe. Or rather, lack thereof. After a successful tour in Zanzibar, Brett’s props have yet to return. They haven’t cleared customs! So what does an illusion show look like without illusions? Brett and his stagehand better figure it out fast! After all, the show must go on and he’s under contract! Acts from Worst Case Magic have been performed for a sold-out audience at the Winnipeg Circus Club Annual Showcase! Produced by Trick-E-Productions and Hogan’s Circus.

Worst Case Magic

Trick-E-Productions—School of Contemporary Dancers

What happens when a magicians props get stopped at the border? A whole lot of cardboard and stalling is what happens. This cute concept turned cardboard into shabby chic props and enhanced the charm of our magician. He was a lot like a human Eeyore but with more energy. The character he created was genuinely likeable and funny. The magic was also great! My favourite trick involved a wire and some illusions I hadn’t seen before. As a fan of magic I see a lot of recycled tricks. I was very impressed to see some original content! If you go into it knowing it’s going to be hokey and silly you will love this show. Very fun and worth a watch.
