HAVING astonished, amazed and entertained a number of celebrities, personalities and the public with his weekly prime-time TV show titled Magic with Mo on SABC3, South African magician Mo Magic brings his theatre show to Pietermaritzburg for four performances as part of his national tour.A first of its kind for South Africa, the TV show gained a tremendous following from the viewing public and rose to second most watched South African TV show on SABC3.“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,” said the magician. With 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. “Last year 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.The tour started in Durban with multiple sold-out performances in February, then proceeded to the Wild Coast and Port Elizabeth. The magician is now thrilled to bring the show to Pietermaritzburg as part of the tour. “I love performing the art of magic and the art form is best experienced live. I look forward to intriguing and entertaining the Pietermaritzburg audiences with my theatre show, especially since this will be my first public theatre performance in the beautiful city,” said Mo.The brand ambassador for Child Welfare Durban & District, he will also be using the tour to spread awareness about the contribution made by the organisation towards “giving childhood back to children”.The magician’s ambitious nationwide tour makes history in that this is the first time a South African magician will tour every province with a theatre show, combining magic, mentalism and comedy. The show will then travel internationally. The show takes place at the Hexagon Theatre in Golf Road. Tickets R100 and R120 from Computicket. No under children under the age of six are allowed and no admittance after the start of the performance.
