Adelaide born Matt Tarrant is back again with his multi-award winning new show MORE UNSOLVED and it does not disappoint. This is a fast paced, multi-media, interactive show that will have your head spinning for days.
Tarrant has been dubbed “Australia’s most popular Magician” and if you want to know why, just spend an hour with Matt – he’s likeable, funny, down-to-earth and knows how to entertain a crowd.
I love magic and illusions but I am also a sceptic, so I was keen to try and work out how he would attempt fool us – but this man is good!!! From the very first card trick, set to a mash-up of music, I was hooked. Matt choses his audience participants by throwing a plush toy into the crowd and then getting that person to throw it to someone else and so on, this alone gives his tricks instant credibility. He also has a camera on stage with two large screens either side, these allow the large crowd an up-close view of his incredible card tricks, a dangerous stunt and are also used to show the grand finale, which will blow your mind and leave you thinking… how did he do that!?!
But it’s more than just incredible slight of hand and astonishing moments, Matt is a showman, he blends the show together with some light-hearted humour and has a bit of fun with the crowd.
If you are looking for a show that you can take the entire family along to and one they will be talking about long after the show has finished – this is it!
Now, I’m off to speak to Matt about next Saturday’s Lotto numbers.
