If you’re expecting spoilers you’re out of luck. Asked to keep exact details to ourselves by the master of psychological illusion, honestly, the less you know about it the more you’ll enjoy it. And you will enjoy it.
A much more personal show than before – he talked about coming out, being bullied at school because of his abilities – there were still plenty of ‘wow, how did he do that’ moments.
The two sections straight after the interval and the finale in particular were still being debated by people as we filed out of the theatre.
Employing his old friend the Frisbee to pluck people out of the packed audience to help, he showed how easily behaviour can be predicted and manipulated via a range of tricks.
At the end of the two hours I was left wondering if free will actually exists.

Disarmingly witty, poking fun at himself as much as the audience, he seemed much more comfortable on stage than in previous shows of his I’ve seen.
A genuine showman - again, that finale – this is his best show yet. Please go see it so I’ve somebody to talk about it with.
