Great Mix of Comedy and Magic at Henley Fringe

Laugh with Tricks at the Three Tuns Pub

laughs-with-tricksPhil Reed graced the stage first and had the crowd in stitches with his childbirth, dating and his appearance on the ITV show Take Me Out. Phil gave a fantastic stand up performance that reminded me of a cross between Russell Howard and Michael McIntyre. A great mix of observational humour and cheeky rude jokes.

After Phil’s set we were all given a treat by Phil’s partner Stu who wowed us with some really entertaining and funny magic tricks. From producing a bottle of beer from a hanky to pulling a (very non-traditional) “rabbit” from a hat, Stu was fantastic at pulling in the audience with some participation and producing little gems of magic along the way.

Phil finished the show off brilliantly with some jokes and a bit of very clever ventriloquism!. The audience were both spell bound and amazed in equal measure, a thoroughly entertaining show. The only thing that was a shame was that it had to end so soon! Another great performance to end a great week at Henley Fringe!
