HAVING astonished, amazed and entertained a number of celebrities, personalities and members of the public on season one of his weekly prime time TV show titled Magic with Mo on SABC3, South African magician Mo Magic takes his theatre show to audiences across SA and will make a turn in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, May 7.

A first of its kind for SA, the TV show gained a tremendous following from the viewing public and rose to being the second most watched South African TV show on SABC3 behind Isidingo.

Additionally, the only international shows with larger viewerships were Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives, both on air for decades with a long standing following. The magician said, “I’m thrilled the TV show was so well received. South Africans are clearly appreciating the art of magic and I’m honoured to be sharing it with them.”

The TVSA blog reported, “Magic with Mo has pulled out an ace for SABC3 with a whopping increase in viewership since its premiere,” adding, “Not an easy feat on a Saturday night. This growth is a good example of a show slowly building by being engaging or entertaining. Well done, Mo.”

An honours degree graduate in electronic engineering, Mo resigned from a lucrative career as a project manager, in 2010, to pursue his passion for the art of magic. The magician said, “2015 brought with it the realisation of my dream - to share the art of magic with South Africans regularly on TV, taking it to them in their homes. During 2016, I plan to take the art of magic to people in their towns and cities to experience live.”

This being his 14th year with the art of magic, the audience can expect to see some of the magic, mentalism (mind reading magic) and stunts as seen on the TV show, and other routines saved especially for the 90- minute theatre show. He will also have you in stitches with his clean comedy and witty ad-libs.

“I love performing the art of magic and the art form is best experienced live. I look forward to intriguing and entertaining the Port Elizabeth audience with my performance, especially since this will be my first public performance in the beautiful city,” said Mo Magic.

The magician’s TV show was a first of its kind magic production for South African television, and his ambitious nationwide tour will follow suit, it being the first time that a South African magician will tour every province with his theatre show, combining magic, mentalism and comedy. The show starts at 8pm and the duration is one and a half hours.

Tickest available from Computicket and range from R120 and R140. No under 6s and no admittance after start of performance.
