Great to perform my strolling closeup magic at the Viaduct Events Centre for the TVNZ 2014 New Season Launch Party.

The event had a circus theme and I entertained the audience of around a thousand people alongside four other magicians.  The ringmaster for the evening was Guy Cater who circulated throughout the room with a megaphone hyping up the magic with traditional showbiz flair.

Imagine my surprise when I turn around and bump into internet meme Alf Stewart from Home and Away.  During the announcement of the new season’s lineup pre-recorded clips of the ever-popular UK magician Dynamo were shown on the big screen.

The funniest part of the evening was when Alan forgot his hat and accidentally left it in the dressing room.  He almost got away with it too.
