Whether it be a coin jumping from one hand to another or a bottle of wine appearing from nowhere, these slick Australians amaze the crowd with their close-up magic.
Though the tricks are impressive, they are also a little repetitive (a coin trick leads into a casino chip set-up and that in turn leads into a con with two silks) and some will find there is a little too much talking and not enough trickery, but it’s nice to see an accomplished act trying to do something different with close-up magic.
With a full-house and a standing ovation from sections of the crowd, there is no doubt Simon and Vyom are entertaining.
And, as they explain, the world belongs to the manipulators. With a few more tricks, the world could belong to this likeable duo.
