Bringing their quest to uncover the greatest magic show on earth to Sydney audiences for the very first time, comic magicians Sam Hume and Justin Williams present their newest family magic production – The Greatest Magic Show. With special guest and ringmaster Brendon Kerss also joining in on the fun, the show is set to be a smash hit with kids and adults alike. Showing as part of Sydney Fringe Festival, The Greatest Magic Show will open in Hurstville and Leichardt at the end of September.
With 15 years of combined experience in kid’s entertainment, Sam and Justin’s Showmen Productions have mastered the art of entertaining their audiences with the right mix of magic, fun, comedy, and inspiration. Hume spoke with City Hub about how rewarding his career has become.
“That’s the whole reason we do what we do – to see the kids’ reactions, to see the happiness on their faces. Last time we were in Perth we visited the children’s hospital over there and it was incredible just to see the enjoyment on their faces.”
The Greatest Magic Show is an all-hands-on-deck production, with the team bringing volunteers from the audience onto the stage throughout the entire performance.
“Because of the kids, because of the volunteers, the show is different each and every time that you go and see it which keeps it fresh,” said Sam.
With entertainment for the whole family, The Greatest Magic Show is the perfect family package for a great day out, with Sam saying: “It really is enjoyed by everyone who comes – parents and kids as well. It’s very involved, all the kids are involved. They can expect to be amazed by the magic, and it’s a hilarious show as well. We want the kids who come to feel inspired, too.”
