THE WORLD’S FUNNIEST AND NAUGHTIEST MAGIC SHOW back where it all started: The Naked Magicians in final stage tour! 

PLUS behind the scenes: Ben Stiller, The Rock, protests in Kansas, a popped knees and awkward airport moments

BRISBANE @ The Tivoli – Fri 15th & Sat 16th July

REDLANDS @ Redland Performing Arts Centre – Fri 29th & Sat 30th July
PORT MACQUARIE @ The Glasshouse – Sat 6th Aug

COFFS HARBOUR @ Jetty Memorial Theatre – Sun 7th Aug

PERTH @ Regal Theatre – Fri 12th & Sat 13th Aug

 

It’s the show THE ROCK tweeted about! Ben Stiller was “comically confused” about it and it drew protests in Kansas!  And it all started in Brisbane!

 

After sold-out shows in 300+ cities around the globe including a season on London’s West End, New York, and a residency in Las Vegas, one of Australia’s biggest entertainment exports, The Naked Magicians are performing limited dates around Australia in 2022 for their final time ever. Tickets available at NakedMagicians.com

 

Mike Tyler and Christopher Wayne, two of Australia’s most famous magicians, are the creators and co-stars of this R-rated magic show who deliver world-class magic and non-stop laughs while wearing nothing but a top hat and a smile. The duo fore-go top hats and capes for full frontal illusions complete with magic, muscles and endless laughs for a show that the LA TIMES described as “an orgy of magic, comedy, and nudity”

 

Perfect for date night, the ultimate “Girls Night Out”, or for the gay guys, The Naked Magicians have performed — and undressed — for millions of fans in more than 300 cities worldwide making them the most successful Australian magic act in history. “Good magicians don’t need sleeves and great magicians don’t need pants,” says Tyler. “When we say ‘Abracadaba!’, the audience isn’t always looking at our hands.”

 

The broad-shouldered Wayne and proud owner of a freakishly long tongue is the first Australian magician in TV history to have his own TV series (More Than Magic). The sporty tan lines and incredible physique seen on stage hint at Tyler’s Speedo-wearing days when he swam competitively at the Australian National Championships and Pan Pacific Games before becoming a professional magician.

“Being on stage doing magic without relying on pockets or sleeves does add that extra challenge and ups our game,” Wayne says.

The Naked Magicians have also been seen on America’s Got Talent, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, and E!News.

 

Ben Stiller: It was our FIRST EVER live cross on American TV.  We were in New York live with The Huffington Post, wearing nothing but our undies.  All of a sudden we hear a commotion on set and Ben Stiller was standing behind us, looking comedically confused at these two Aussies staring at him in their jocks.

 

The Rock: While on tour in America, we were on one of the morning TV shows over there and did a mind reading trick that starts with the hosts thinking of a celebrity. The celebrity they happened to think of was Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. He happened to be watching and Tweeted the segment to his millions of fans saying how much he loved it. If he ever comes to our show we hope he doesn’t sit in the front row or he’ll block the money shot.

 

The Protest: This was when we wondered if we had officially made it. Arriving at our show in Kansas City, we were met with the infamous “Westborough Baptist Church”.  They stood in front of our theatre and protested with the same signs they used to protest Keith Urban and the Foo Fighters. We offered them free tickets to the show, they declined…

The Knee: San Angelo, Texas: Nightmare material.  San Angelo, Texas.  In the middle of the show, Christopher’s knee blew out and dislocated.  The worst part, the audience thought it was a trick and laughed and clapped whilst he lay screaming in pain – as naked as the day he was born.

Airport Security: Sydney, Australia – Mike was flying back to Brisbane and accidentally checked in the wrong luggage.  He tried to get through security with a bag of props from the show (a blow up doll, rope, handcuffs, and all sorts). He was efficiently detained by airport security before he was able to convince them (thanks Google!) that it was all a very strange misunderstanding!

 

The Comedian: Christopher made the critical error of dating a well-known American comedian.  Shortly after they broke up, she gave her first full TV comedy special.   Although who she is will be kept a mystery, let’s say that one joke on that special is aimed right at Christopher’s lovemaking skills…or lack thereof.

BRISBANE @ The Tivoli – Fri 15th & Sat 16th July

REDLANDS @ Redland Performing Arts Centre – Fri 29th & Sat 30th July

The Circus is in town and it is action packed

 

By Samantha Elley

Put your expectations away and open your mind to the ‘edge of your seat’ experience you will be in for when you go to see The Circus in Coffs Harbour.

“We are a seventh generation circus family, originally from Germany,” said tour manager and matriarch, Marie Weber.

“We bring acts that have never been seen under the big top in Australia before.

“These include FMX (freestyle) riders, the splitting globe of death, comedians, aerialists and even a human cannonball.”

Patriarch, Harry Weber, has been involved in the circus touring life for the past 40 years and the family are excited to be in Australia.

“We have been touring in New Zealand, South Africa, Korea and other international areas,” said Marie.

That’s no mean feat with a family of eight children who have all grown up with the circus.

“We have performers from all walks of life,” said Marie.

“There are about 40 crew and performers, including those travelling with families.”

Marie said they are all like one big happy family, especially when they have been working so closely together for so long.

“Most of us have been working together for more than 10 years,” she said.

The Circus has just wound up six shows at Lismore Showgrounds and is now heading to Coffs Harbour where they have a giveaway on their Facebook page ‘Weber Bros Entertainment’ for two VIP packages and 10 double passes to their shows.

They will be performing their action packed shows at Coffs Harbour Showground between June 6th – 16th.

Book your tickets at 0452003300 or online at iticket.com.au for two hours of great family entertainment. Prices range from $35 – $85 for adults and $25-$70 for children.

Horizon

 

There is a place between sea and sky – a sacred realm, where the sun rises and falls and the light is new.

From two of the world’s great First Nations comes a brand-new work: Horizon. Some call it a feeling, some call it the mother spirit. It’s the place where sea meets sky, the horizon we all look to, the compass that guides us home.

In Bangarra Dance Theatre’s first main stage cross-cultural collaboration, leading Māori choreographer Moss Te Ururangi Patterson joins beloved Bangarra alumna Deborah Brown. Together they guide the award-winning ensemble in stories that honour their mother countries and the spirit that calls them home.

Brown is a proud descendent of the Wakaid Clan and Meriam people in the Torres Strait, with heritage from far across the seas in Scotland. She carries strength and resilience from her ancestors. Patterson was born in Turangi near Lake Taupō, and describes the sense of home as something alive, that he carries like a beating heart.

To open the program, Saibailayg (Saibai Islander) Sani Townson expands his acclaimed work Kulka, debuted in Dance Clan in 2023, to make a thrilling opening piece paying homage to Sani’s grandfather and his Torres Strait heritage.

Come explore the cultural forces that bind us together, across oceans and eons. Experience the resilience of the First Peoples of the Oceania region, that extends across the continent now known as Australia, the Torres Strait Islands and Aotearoa, our southern neighbour.

Horizon is a double bill opening with Kulka by Bangarra alum Sani Townson, followed by the primary piece, The Light Inside, choreographed by Bangarra alum Deborah Brown and Māori choreographer and Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • When – 8-17 of August
  • Where – QPAC
  • Price – from $59
  • TicketsAvailable here.
