Three of South Africa’s popular comedy magicians perform together for their debut show, 3 Funny Guys & A Pack Of Cards, a show filled with visual illusions and jaw-dropping sleight-of-hand magic, and packed with belly laughter. On the bill on 14 February 2019 at the Drama Factory in Somerset West are Magic Man, Marcel Oudejans and Greg Gelb.
3 Funny Guys & A Pack Of Cards line-up
Magic Man was born in Cape Town but grew up in Canada, where he started his signature sleight-of-hand manipulation magic shows by performing as a street busker. On his return to South Africa in 1994, Magic Man became a comedy sensation on the South African stand-up comedy circuit. Since then, he’s performed at every comedy club and casino in the country. He spends the northern summers performing at street festivals in Canada and Europe, and the southern summers performing throughout South Africa, mostly seen at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
Marcel Oudejans is one of Africa’s leading corporate magicians, having performed throughout the continent for blue-chip corporate clients at gala dinners, conferences and exclusive VIP functions for 15 years. He’s performed three one-man shows at the National Arts Festival and the Cape Town Fringe Festival, and is the producer of the Cape Town Magic Club. Drawn to visual magic and comedic wit, Marcel is adept at bringing audience members onto stage to help them “make magic”.
Greg Gelb may only recently have become a full-time magician but he has a life-long love of the art, being a self-taught magician since his teenage years. Greg’s sense of humour and interest in “mental magic” makes him a hilarious and captivating performer. He has spent years entertaining guests at restaurants and performed two one-man shows at the National Arts Festival and Cape Town Fringe Festival, with multiple appearances in the Cape Town Magic Club’s Monday Night Magic show.
