Cabaret / Magic/Illusion
Scaled robbietweirdo eventimage1
One man's transformative journey, from socially awkward to utterly inept. Yes, Robbie is a magician. And despite what you see on TV, magicians are generally uncool. Robbie is no exception.

During this hilarious hour, Robbie will share genuine diary entries and photographs from his tortured childhood, along with insights into his first ever crush, his macabre fascinations, and so much more. An engaging and interactive show, full of wonder and attempts at humour, with audience participation being mandatory.

Awkwardly elegant, and elegantly awkward, Robbie is prone to over sharing. Through his unique blend of interactive theatre, magic, and storytelling, he reveals his inner weirdo, and encourages you to embrace your own.

Ten years ago, Robbie began performing as a magician and getting paid! He performed most weekends while also working a "day job". In December 2011, he quit his day job, and has since made a good living as one of Perth's busiest professional magicians. Every week, he performs both on-stage and close-up, at weddings, birthdays, corporate events, festivals, and more. And no, he DOES NOT do children's parties!

The WA Society of Magicians has twice awarded Robbie the title of "Most Creative" after winning local competitions. While he has performed in many previous Fringe festivals, this production represents his first full length solo performance. It features a lot of challenging new material, which he is excited to debut at Fringe. His website can be found here:
