Dom Chambers, Australia’s own ‘Beer Magician’, is back in the country after performing for, and perplexing, magical royalty Penn and Teller in Las Vegas. Like nothing you’ve ever seen in magic before, RanDom utilises Siri in the most unexpected of ways, while keeping the audience in surprised stitches throughout. Forget rabbits and hats, it’s all about Tinder and beer.

Gluttony, 5-17 Mar (not 11), 7:20pm.


How powerful is the human mind? Isaac Lomman endeavours to highlight the complexities of imagination in this family-friendly hypnotic display of suggestion. Volunteers on stage lead the audience on hilarious adventures through Lomman’s guidance, without falling into the clichéd stereotypes of Hollywood hypnosis.

Matt Tarrant: MORE Unsolved

Matt Tarrant represents the new age in magic. As the most successful solo performer in Adelaide Fringe history, his magic and mentalist work continues to enthral and excite audiences across the globe.

The Garden of Unearthly Delights, 15 Feb-17 Mar (not Mon), 7pm.

Kevin Kopfstein International Man of Mystery & Mischief

Now that his teenage son ‘knows where the food pantry is’, Kevin Kopfstein is back after a 15 year hiatus performing a brand new show with a fresh enthusiasm. A blend of magic and standup, Kopfstein enthralls audiences by showing the magic within everyday objects.
