Magical Stuart Lightbody

8 In the hoolymagooly of my crazy life right now I forgot to write about a really amazing show I saw in a properly odd place at an even odder Sunday afternoon time. My dearest friend, who is also the author of toingtoing,celebrated his birthday with a weekend away in Betty’s Bay and on the Sunday afternoon, after celebration lunch, about ten of us moved the lounge furniture around to watch a very intimate version of Stuart Lightbody’s magic show. He is a sleight of hand artist, who goes to great lengths to explain that what he is doing is tricks, and then he blows your mind when he does them.

I must confess, the thought of watching a magic show is quite boring. I remember stinky old men that my mother and auntie called “retired”, with frayed clothes, a battered old top hat, a pigeon, a rabbit (if you were lucky) and countless coloured scarves tied together. Oh and dusty bunches of feathers in a collapsible bouquet.

Stuart is nothing like that. He is young and totally charming. He gets passionate and committed. And his tricks are totally amazing. He is also a natural in front of an audience. He literally had us in the palm of his very sleighty hand.

    Stuart performed at my wedding. He’s largely responsible for the success of my marriage so far despite my wife having a crush on him.
