What was supposed to be a boring Friday night took an interesting turn when my work colleagues and I went to watch the gala premiere of TRIKSTARS–Masters of Trickery at Sunway Lagoon Ampitheatre last December 4, 2015.
It was a memorable and magical night as we watched 7 performers from Las Vegas and Europe perform amazing magical acts and delightful comedy. It was a magical show like no other!
The show started off with Phelston Jones showing amazing tricks mixed with comedy, followed by Sylvester the Jester doing cartoon-ish acts (it was like watching Looney Tunes come to life).
Then King Charles Troupe (one of my favorite acts) wowed us with their unicycling skills as they play basketball and shoot hoops while riding a unicycle, that for me is unbelievably awesome! It seems easy but wow massive respect, it ain’t easy to play basketball while in a unicycle!
Magus Utopia then delivered a fantastic trick show in a rather dark story-telling format mixed with illusions in their Nightmare act, it was like watching a theatrical performance but with lots of magical tricks.
My friend’s favourite came up next: the award winning dance troupe, Sebastian and Kristina, who entertained us with their fast transformations, which got me asking “How did they do that?”.
My other favorite act is from Rudy Colby, whom I call the “fire guy”, I mean how he executed those fire tricks was stunning! Really kept me at the edge of my seat.
J’aime Holland also performed song numbers in between each act singing hits from the 80’s and 90’s (and some modern songs).
At the end of the night me and my friends were all smiles as we truly enjoyed the show. We wanted to shout encore but I guess getting up close with the cast to take pictures and chat with them was enough to cap the night.
