Silly is wonderful and wonderfully silly is sublime.
Two magicians may have just killed someone during their last show. Are they guilty? Who cares? They're so damn entertaining!
The magic may have failed these two hapless magicians during that fatal last act but it abounds on stage. This duo brims with potent chemistry; a piston-pumping energy and precise laser-like comic timing.
And then there's the glee. These two are consummate performers who are clearly in their element. It's not a perfect show but their enthusiasm is infectious and - like the wave of a wand - makes any minor bumps go POOF!
There's tumbling, playful takes on cop and courtroom dramas, puppetry, an improbably ridiculous journey through history and I loved all of it.
