ADULTS ONLY MAGIC SHOW … coming soon to Melbourne!

Following the roaring success of their 2020 and 2021 seasons, which saw an unprecedented run of COMPLETELY SELL OUT performances; Showmen Productions are once again returning to their hometown of Melbourne with their hilarious R-RATED 18+ magic show aptly named – ADULTS ONLY MAGIC SHOW. Prepare to be WOWED out of your comfy red seats in this 70-minute JAM-PACKED SPECTACULAR featuring hilarious, raucous comedy, mind-bending illusions, stunningly dangerous stunts seen on stages all across the globe; and just a cheeky hint of nudity!

After winning numerous awards at Fringes across the country with their 2 family magic shows – The Greatest Magic Show and CIRCUS – the creative minds Sam and Justin are now getting set to completely flip the script on what you would expect from your typical magic show – replacing the bunnies and top hats with raw comedy and sex appeal! Oh and did we mention FREE DRINKS for all the volunteers? Yes you read that right – join the magicians on stage and the next drink is on them!

As apart of their first season at Adelaide Fringe in 2019, they were compared to their idols, and Vegas’ most iconic magicians by GLAM Adelaide who hailed them as “Quite possibly the Penn & Teller of Australia! ★★★★★!”.

“The Showmen are wildly HILARIOUS, wonderfully confident, and WICKEDLY inappropriate! The perfection in the illusions, sleight of hand tricks and mental games prove just how good this duo is!” Theatre Travels, ★★★★★

Last year at the Magic Festival, the duo put on the absolute highlight of the festival –5 completely sold-out nights at the Circus Oz Melba Spiegeltent and together with their family shows, secured the title of ‘Highest Selling Show at the festival in 2021. Similar accolades were achieved as part of Fringe World in Perth and Adelaide Fringe where they sold 95 and 80% of all tickets respectively as part of their longest seasons to date with Girls School and Gluttony.

This year in Melbourne, strap yourself in for “a night of unwarranted laughter” (What’s On Sydney) as two of the best magicians in the business present a show with creative flare and impressive showmanship that WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN!

★★★★ ““A true triumph as two engaging lads deftly build a bond with the audience, going from card tricks & sleight of hand to illusions & escapes!” – Adelaide Advertiser

★★★★ “Magic at its FINEST and FUNNIEST!” Fringe Feed
