Christopher Wayne & Mike Tyler bring the whole package, if you know what I mean, to their latest Naked Magicians stint. The boys are back by popular demand! This is not the first time this duo has graced us with their presence and then some. After making waves at Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Brisbane Comedy Festival it’s no wonder we’ve welcomed them back!


I’m not sure what’s more attractive about the show. The fact that it’s a magic show or that they put their own twist on it. We know it’s a given the magicians themselves are quite attractive. We’ve heard of magic tricks and dark magic before, but kinky magic? It’s a little different and a lot of fun.


Magic shows simply aren’t driving the line in theatre anymore in the Brisbane community. The Illusionists and Illusionists 2.0 are the biggest ones that many Brisbanites will remember. When I think magician I think of Uncle Larry and his amateur vaudeville hour at the kids’ birthday party…


But the hilarious and naughty pair XS Entertainment saw this weekend is something much better than that! I wasn’t sure what to call them but Tyler and Wayne have labelled themselves as “naked magicians”. Try putting that one on your resume! When you think magician you think mystery and secrecy but these guys bare it all. It’s part of the charm that makes the magic more impressive.


Without the cap and hat, where do they hide the bunny? Let’s not think too hard about it.

This show is necromancy meets nudity; mentalist meets mental and a good deal of comedy rolled into one. See the dynamic duo strut their stuff before they leave Brisbane once more.

The Naked Magicians must close June 29 2014.
