AUDIENCE SILENCED WHEN BEER BOTTLE TRICK GOES WRONG
A MAGIC trick went “horribly wrong” at a weekend Melbourne Comedy Festival show, but audience members had to sign a confidentiality agreement to stop them revealing details.
The trick went awry during the Something About Razorblades and Nails show at the Northcote Town Hall on Sunday night.
An audience member, who wished to remain anonymous, told Confidential that “something went horribly wrong”.
She said all members of the audience had to sign a “secrecy agreement” before they left the venue preventing them from telling anyone what happened.
The audience member said the trick that went wrong involved a broken beer bottle, but she would not elaborate.
In the show, magician Tim Ellis “swallows razorblades, pushes needles through his skin and does whatever the evil Sudoku tells him to”.
Ellis confirmed a trick did not go to plan but said he could not reveal any more details “out of respect for the others involved”.
“It has never happened before and it is not something we would expect to happen again,” he said.
“No one was seriously hurt.
“A lot of magicians have secrecy agreements on stand-by in case something goes wrong.”
The Northcote Town Hall said it did not know of any incidents occurring, and the festival declined to comment.
