Oliver Meech’s Comedy Magic Show – 17th October

Who are you?

Oliver Meech, Comedy Magician and Magic Boffin.

What’s your show about?

It’s a comedy magic and mind-reading show. I nickname it ‘Live Brain Surgery’ as it mixes magic and neuropsychology, so it’s amazing things about your brain illustrated with amazing tricks. There’s strange surgery, bizarre brain facts and freaky tricks. I do things like vanishing memories, paralysing fingers and speed-memorising a deck of cards. It’s a laughing, gasping good time!

Is this the first time you’ve played in Manchester?

Yep, and I can’t wait to pop my Mancunian cherry. I’ve heard it rains as much as London so I’m sure I’ll feel right at home.

How long have you been doing comedy?

I’ve been performing for the bathroom mirror since I was a toddler. I’ve been doing comedy clubs for the last 3 years. Comedy and magic go really well together – there’s the same element of surprise in both jokes and tricks.

What are the 3 funniest words in the English language?

Badger, Monkey, Bonobo: it’s all about the animals.

Anything else you want to add?
Yes, some shameless mentioning of nice quotes about my show:
**** “funny, endearing, impressive showmanship” ThreeWeeks
“real gasps of awe” Broadway Baby

Show starts at 7PM 17Th October 2011 and is approximately 1 hour long.

Tickets are £5.

Shows in Apotheca are part of the 2011 Manchester Comedy Festival.
