MagicWeek Comments:

Packed with great material, you'll see Mel in three different live shows, followed by post-show breakdowns of each routine. Mel's a very funny performer, but his magic is never lost or thrown away within the comedy. Every routine benefits from meticulous attention to detail that has clearly gone into its construction. In fact, these are some of the finest comedy magic routines I've seen.


An essential double DVD set for every comedy standup/cabaret/stage magician who wants to progress their career, and excellent value too. Shot in high definition widescreen the production values are also first class. This one gets my very highest recommendation. You'll love it.
