Matt Tarrant: More Unsolved

Adelaide Fringe, Gluttony, The Flamingo, until March 17

Review by Honey B

Adelaide’s own Matt Tarrant keeps the magic alive in an immersive and highly interactive show. Tarrant has a laidback, natural stage presence, which made audience members feel at ease when they caught the cat bus toy to take part in the action. The friendly magician, who has been performing for 15 years, brought back a fan favourite trick – his musical card sleight of hand. It was mind-blowing. Tarrant’s card manipulations were certainly a highlight and I wish I could choose winning numbers as easily as he could. Bruce the Goose was back, and he connected with the crowd as the puppet correctly delivered a burger with an array of strange ingredients. Tarrant was delightful to watch in his skilful deception and his video montage at the end of the show will have people up late wondering how he does it.
