Paul Daniels – Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow (Norwell Lapley Productions Ltd)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

Paul Daniels is the consummate showman, blending magic and comedy together in a highly polished performance that has the audience clapping with delight consistently throughout. While his magic tricks may seem like they are anchored in the 1980s, they still have the power to surprise and entertain and his jokes and crowd patter are second to none – and he does this thing with a rubber band that will blow your mind. Well, okay, not literally. What is particularly charming about the show is the reciprocal affection between Daniels and his audience, most of whom are there on a nostalgia trip to relive their childhoods. That being said, his comedy routine is fresh enough to keep even the most cynical observer entertained.

Assembly George Square, Aug 3 – 28, 5.00pm (6.00pm), £13.00 – £15.00, fpp131.
