There are many performers at Festivale, Launceston’s annual Food and Wine festival, held in City Park in February each year.
One of the performers making his Festivale debut this year was Magic Brian (http://www.magicbrian.com/).
Magic Brian has been a performer for 20 years, and a street performer for 12. He started doing magic tricks as a 16 year old, and enjoys the surprise of performance.
Here is Magic Brian as Nigel Blackstorm, a heavy-metal magician.,
The disconnect between this bandanna wearing, head banging, metal-loving magician, and pieces of coloured silk disappearing into his hand is very entertaining.
Getting out of a straight jacket while keeping his hair on is even more of a challenge!
