“The Best Variety Show of Edinburgh Fringe 2018”(Theatre Weekly)
As seen on: Celebrity Juice, Live at The Palladium and star of his own ITV2 show, Tricked.
Ben’s brand new Live show, “Fifty” is coming to The MAC, Birmingham for one week only! In this fast-paced magic show you’ll witness fifty amazing tricks!
“The concept may be simple, but the magic is astounding, Ben delivers a real mix of close up card tricks that many of us will recognise, to more complicated and less well-known tricks which drew gasps from the audience throughout. He gives very definite nods to other magicians, such as David Blaine and Paul Daniels, and his tribute to the latter is wonderful to watch.
Hanlin’s particular brand of magic feels a little more special when you are watching him live, and I suspect this is down to his personality. He’s very at ease with his audience, who he gets involved at every opportunity, it feels friendly and fun – we’re in safe hands with Ben Hanlin. 50 is a family friendly show, so there’s plenty to delight everyone, from sleight of hand to more astounding illusions.”
Ben says, “Currently I only have plans to do this run in my hometown of Brum! I chose the MAC as I grew up watching so many shows here and I think it’s one of Birmingham’s best venues – I have deliberately kept the ticket price down to hopefully make it affordable for all the family!”
