Strange and Unusual

My friend Nicholas Wallace will be appearing in Toronto in January as part of the Next Stage Theatre Festival with his show Strange and Unusual.

Back when we were hosting Magic Tonight, Nick was one of our most requested guests (certainly the creepiest guest), and earlier this year he received the Allan Slaight Award for Canadian Rising Star in Magic.

Unfortunately, Nick lives rather far away, out in that mysterious void on the other side of Hamilton, so getting a chance to see him perform in Toronto is rare. But he’s here for five nights at the Factory Theatre and there is an early bird discount up until this Friday, December 7. Just use the promo code EARLY BIRD (with the space) at checkout. The show is definitely worth seeing!

Happy Halloween

Magicians are not generally very scary people. We're primarily entertainers. But sometimes, in order to be dramatic, we need to court danger and sometimes just be a little weird. So for Halloween this year, I took a look through our archives and assembled this collection of the magicians on Magic Tonight getting dressed up or just generally being strange and creepy. Enjoy!

Magic Tonight runs weekly at the Crimson Lounge in downtown Toronto, Readers of this blog can use the code reality fir a discount on the price of tickets and dinner when purchasing online.

This Sunday on Magic Tonight

This Sunday, I'm thrilled, tickled and otherwise titillated to announced that we have the incomparable Nick Wallace on the show. He'll be performing with me on Sunday night at 7:00 at the Crimson Lounge (Inside The Cage 292 at College & Spadina, Downtown). Nick is a master mystery performer who, according to reliable sources, obtained his power by selling his soul to Satan... Seriously, you'll never guess how hold he is by looking at his picture.

If you don't believe in ghosts and you're not afraid of the dark, Nick Wallace can help you with that.

This week on Magic Tonight

This Sunday, on Magic Tonight, I'm joined by the man who talks to ghosts himself, Nicholas Wallace. A Canadian magic champion, and producer of engaging and exhilarating Fringe shows, Nick is one of my favourite performers in the country. He spend most of his time hiding outside the city in an undisclosed location where he (presumably) works schooling his offspring in whatever dark arts he derives his supernatural abilities from. Come join us at the Crimson Lounge in Toronto for an incredible show. Readers of this blog can use the code reality for a discount on the price of tickets and dinner when buying online.

The Ghosts are Returning

I'm delighted (and slightly frightened) to learn that Nicholas Wallace's Seance is coming to Toronto this fall. Over the past several years, Nick has earned a reputation for producing outstanding shows. He is as clever as he is charming. I first saw Seance nearly two years ago at Theatre Aquarius in Hamilton and I left the theatre feeling thrilled and more than a bit disturbed. Nick Wallace may seem to be sweet and innocent but I suspect he is actually the devil, pure evil wrapped in Mister Rogers' sweater.

If you don't believe in ghosts and you're not afraid of the dark, Nick Wallace can help with that.

Seance is playing in Toronto for nearly two weeks at the Theatre Passe Murraille Mainspace in September and October. Tickets are now available from the theatre box office.
