Journal – MAGICIAN KEITH BARRY has made a full recovery after passing out on stage during the climactic act of his show on Friday night, according to promoters. Barry was performing an escape trick at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, during which he is wrapped in cling film and tied with rope. Footage of the event shows Barry struggling to escape the restraints, before toppling off a chair and apparently losing consciousness. After several helpers run on stage to assist him, the curtain is lowered and the house lights come on. “His manager Eamonn Maguire addressed the shocked audience to tell them that the show was over,” show promoters MCD said in a statement this morning.
Sweet trick Gob. Excuse me, illusion. Sweet illusion. Anytime you can pass out stone cold unconscious tied up in the middle of a stage in front of a capacity crowd you know you nailed the shit out of it magically.
I guess I’m just a little confused about the illusion even if you had pulled it off to perfect? Like that was the show? You tied up in cling wrap in a chair and everyone watches you gradually wiggle out of it over a 20 minute span? Sounds riveting. Houdini’s got to be shitting himself in his grave somewhere right now while trying to escape from it.
