Two of my favorite magicians, Barry & Stuart, did a special one-night-only show at Largo on 4/8/13. It was fantastic.
Barry & Stuart are very well known in the UK, and a fixture at the annual Edinburough Fringe Fest. Their TV specials are witty, fun, and delightfully subversive. This was their first ticketed L.A. show, and they managed to entertain a very hip crowd.
The audience saw some original tricks and old classics that the duo made their own. The Rubik’s Cube is just wonderul, and I loved the record album prediction. Honestly I wasn’t a fan of their voodoo chair routine. It came across as mean-spirited, but that may be a cultural issue.
For the finale, Barry & Stuart closed with one of my all-time favorites… Suicide in C-sharp. If you’re wondering about the theatrical blood on their shirts… click on the link.
