Misdirection: Spellbinding Illusions and Comedy

When: Fri., Feb. 26, 7 p.m., Sat., Feb. 27, 7 & 9:30 p.m. and Sun., Feb. 28, 3 p.m. 2016

Charleston-based illusionist Howard Blackwell joins Boston-based magician Dave Chandler in Misdirection: Spellbinding Illusions and Comedy. Blackwell, an Air Force reservist and world-travelling illusionist, met Dave Chandler, winner of the 2014 International Battle of the Magicians, at a magic convention in TK. “I think comedy comes natural for me while I’m performing,” says Blackwell.  “I couldn’t imagine performing magic without having fun and making people laugh.” Chandler will begin the evening with his manipulation act, while Blackwell closes the performance with a difficult escape attempt. You can see more of Blackwell at Piccolo Spoleto later this year.
