The Curious Cabaret

The Curious Cabaret is an incredible evening of legerdemain, laughter and libations; astonishing magic, hilarious antics, and delicious food and drinks – the perfect night out, hosted by Member of The Magic Circle, Chris Wilder.

Established in 2018, the show can be seen every month in Nottingham but also travels around the UK for private performances, creating lasting memories of amazement and wonder for our audiences. We seek to champion and celebrate the art and performance of magic, showcasing the best and the breadth that magic has to offer.

What To Expect 

If you always thought that the art of magic was just camera tricks or staged reactions then prepare to have your world turned upside down. Each month, the Curious Cabaret showcases professional magicians from around the UK and Europe who excel in their areas of magical expertise, demonstrating feats of mind reading, sleight of hand, visual magic, comedy and illusion.

Throughout the evening you can expect to be amazed, enjoy fits of laughter, and find yourself asking ‘how’? The show is interactive, often involving audience members on stage, but rest assured we always aim to look after our guests and put them at ease. If you are nervous about being selected that’s no problem – just let us know – we always aim to help you to enjoy the evening.

The show is designed for adults and lasts 2 hours, including one or two short intervals to allow you to top up on food and drinks and perhaps discuss your theories of exactly how we did it!

Lineup

Chris Wilder

Two-thirds professional wizard, one-quarter magical idiot, and theremaining three-eighths mathematical genius – Chris Wilder is a Member of The Magic Circle with a love of time travel, obscure movie trivia, and cups of tea.

Your host for the evening, Chris will put you put you at ease and guide you through our evening of magic, perhaps with some magical buffoonery thrown in for good measure.

Sam Fletcher

Mixing stand-up with physical comedy and magic, Sam Fletcher brings his original and unique flavour to this month’s line up at The Curious Cabaret. Whether it is a dance involving an invisible dog, swallowing needles (and then regurgitating them back up) or making tea in the most inventive way, Sam will leave you in hysterics with his impressive illusions.

“D” The Psychic Vampire

You best bring your garlic this month…as we will also be joined by – “D” The Psychic Vampire. Featured in Comedy Central’s “13 Tricks To Seriously Freak You Out” and seen worldwide on BBC3, Fox, The Discovery Channel and more starring in the award-winning BBC shows “Killer Magic” and “Meet The Humans” With a tongue as pointed as his boots and a sense of humour as dark as his wardrobe, D can give the impression he’s stepped right out of a Grimm fairytale, but don’t get the wrong idea – he’s got a lighter, frivolous side. Just look at the hat collection.
