Lovell uses crude language and insults members of the audience while he performs sleight of hand and relays how to be a con man. We were very disappointed. We expected more act and less talk. We would not recommend this event to friends.

The show was great. Lots of fun with audience participation and help from props. The card tricks were terrific and the banter that goes along with them was very funny. Very small venue -great for this type of show.

Exceptionally witty and interesting performance from Simon Lovell. I had 5 in my group, most of which don't enjoy magic like I do, and they LOVED IT! For $15 (my Goldstar price) per ticket, you'd be hard pressed to find anything else like this in...continued

This was one of the most boring shows I have ever seen. Unless you are very, very into card tricks, don't bother wasting your time and money. Oh, and if you do go, get their early because if you sit more than a few rows back, you can't see most...continued
