What a way to start the 2018 Fringe season! My favourite Magician, Paul Dabek is back again and his latest show Encore! is even funnier, saucier and naughtier than ever. Every year I go and never quite know what to expect, which is the fun part of a Paul Dabek show.
His sharp and politically incorrect wit will have you in fits of laughter. So it’s a warning to those who arrive late, leave early or even try to hide amongst the crowd. He will find you and pick you to be a part of the show and it’s pretty much anything goes!
Be prepared for rings and tape that will have you thinking “How did he do that?” A tribute to The Lion King’s Circle of Life, mystery boxes and cheese. Yes! Cheese. You may even get some cheese thrown at you and keeping with the cheese theme some cheesy music which Paul somehow makes cool!
If you think cards, bananas or magic ropes are standard magician tricks then think again when it comes to Paul Dabek. Without giving too much away let’s just say you will be stunned and in awe. Oh and you will be laughing uncontrollably… that’s a given.
