Barry & Stuart

This Scottish duo combine illusion with the gleefully grotesque in a Penn & Teller stylee. Their mischievous manner and playful banter – with each other and the audience – serves to amuse and their tricks amaze (and in some cases disgust). It’s a strong opening but a lack of originality in the illusions of the second half stop this from being a must-see.
