Comedy giants Alan Committie and Stuart Taylor lead their famous friends in a virtual 2021 fundraiser for the College of Magic. The line-up includes Kurt Schoonraad, Rob van Vuuren, Charles Tertiens and Mawonga Gayiya. This fun College of Magic show, dubbed the Stars of Comedy and Magic, happens on Saturday, 12 June 2021, at 8pm.
Building on the success of the 2020 online event, Taylor once again presents the Stars of Comedy and Magic live from the College of Magic – giving fans a virtual peek behind the curtains and doors of the organisation’s beguiling Victorian Manor before introducing the stellar line-up for the night.

Taylor, a College of Magic alumni, is thrilled to present the event once again: “The pandemic has been rough and I can’t think of a better way to lift our collective spirits than with a fun and entertaining evening of comedy and magic! The best part is that you can enjoy it all from the comfort of your home while supporting a great cause: The College of Magic’s outreach Magic in the Community programme. This deserving project gives hope to children who may otherwise have had little or no opportunities for success by teaching them entertainment skills and providing them with vital life skills. Book your tickets and share the wonder of magic with us.”
