About this event

A buddy cop magic show, kinda like Rush Hour meets Penn & Teller's Fool Us... except they're both Penn & Teller, & the white guy magician is Jackie Chan & the Asian magician dude is Chris Tucker? We're not quite sure if this is a comedy disguised as a magic show, or a magic show disguised as comedy, but if you're a fan of either or both, then this show is definitely for you! Don't let the reviews fool you into thinking that anything was planned...

"These guys know exactly what they're doing. And do it brilliantly." ★★★★ X-Press Magazine, 2018.

"Fabulous comic banter and a great rapport with the audience." ★★★★★ Fringe Feed, 2020.

"Madd and James are clearly masters of their craft." Around the Sound, 2020.

"Our kids fell in love with magic at their show." Fringe Feed, 2020.

Presented by:
Jon Madd and Paul James

The Enigmatic Eccentric Jon Madd, and the super suave Paul James, team up to form a dynamic duo. Having first met half a decade ago, and both later becoming sworn members of the Western Australian Society of Magicians together, they bonded like Tango and Cash, or Starsky and Hutch, or like Martin Lawrence and Will Smith as Marcus and Mike in Bad Boys, or the classic Mel Gibson & Danny Glover in whichever Lethal Weapon was your favourite (the original one obviously, duh). The point is, this buddy cop magical comedy team is a sure-fire recipe for success, and a FRINGE WORLD award nomination in 2018 for their first collaborative effort together is the proof! Back by popular demand in 2020, & again in 2021, their chemistry just keeps getting better & you have to see it to disbelieve it!
