MORE ABOUT THE SHOW

Aaron Calvert holding burning declassified file for edinburgh fringe magic show declassified at the gilded balloon

Following two consecutive packed-to-the-rafters Edinburgh Fringe runs at the Free Fringe with ‘Mind Games’ in 2016 and ‘Awaken’ in 2017, and fresh from filming a highly anticipated Channel 4 special (airing in early summer 2018) Aaron Calvert, is heading back up to the Fringe, this year to the Gilded Balloon, with his new Edinburgh Fringe magic show ‘Declassified’.

Aaron’s passion and focus make a distinct departure from ‘traditional’ “cluck-like-a-chicken” comedy hypnotism, moving away from the slightly disreputable shows of old, adding high level production values and bringing a wealth of knowledge, skills and sense of humour in order to create a fresh new, innovative, interactive and of course, hypnotic form of entertainment.

Edinburgh Fringe Magic show recommendation from mind reader and hypnotist and aaron Calvert

Sleight of hand mastery, witty showmanship & inexplicable feats combine as Sam spins stories through a series of phantasmagorical scenes.

Broadway Baby Aaron Calvert: AWAKEN Review

“Moments that made me gasp I’m still thinking about now.”

★★★★

Broadway Baby

Suave, debonair and immaculately presented, Aaron Calvert has the audience entranced from the opening seconds of his new show, Awaken. Calvert’s blend of magic and hypnosis contains moments that made me gasp, and it certainly has that most important mark of a good performance – I am still thinking about it.

The acts themselves defy explanation and to describe them here would be to ruin the show for anyone who wants to see it. Suffice to say, expect plenty of audience interaction and a full, dazzling hour. All I will say is that the methods he used to select audience members to be a part of his act were such that any doubts about planted stooges I may have initially had were soon dismissed.
