Magic shows are an entertaining and interactive form of live entertainment. They are a great way to spend your time with a group of friends or family. Most magic shows in Singapore cater to all ages! Whether you are looking for a date night or a special birthday celebration, if you get a chance, it's definitely worthwhile to experience a magic show.
Unfortunately, magic shows are also a tough find locally. While stand up comedy is picking up in the local scene and comedy specials are everywhere on Netflix, magic just don't see as much publicity.
So here're the top 5 places you may get a chance at catching a magic show live in person.
(Also Included: Time-Limited Live Magic Shows Updated Regularly)
If you haven't already guessed, the best place for live stand up magic will be at comedy clubs. The Merry Lion Comedy Cafe And Bar used to have regular comedy magic performances prior to the pandemic, but these days the best alternative would be checking out line ups at Comedy Masala.
Adrian Saw (https://www.instagram.com/adriansawmagic) is often a headliner at the club and offers a laugh out loud 45 minutes performance that garners raved reviews from the crowd everytime. Check out his next performance by following him on facebook or instagram today!
2. Restaurants & Bars - Regular Close Up Magic Performances
Looking for something more intimate? If you're lucky, you can sometimes get a chance to experience close up magic at restaurants or bars! Unfortunately as of this writing, it is still a hard find for restaurants to hire close up magicians on a regular basis. Your best chance at catching a close up magician will likely be during festive season such as Christmas or even Mother's Day Specials!
Subjected to availablity some restaurants have occassional close up magicians includes:
Helmed by Ex Banker and Medical Graduate, the duo decided to combine their love for magic & food to open a magic-themed café space.
Giving the hobby a home – C Cafe offers a casual setting where “close up magic” can be combined with hearty grub. “It leaves people with a sense of wonder and fun,” he says. “And brings people together and livens the mood.”
As of this writing, the cafe is no longer offering close up magic (likely due to overwhelming workload and the short of manpower), but we are certain that you might just be able to convince either of them to show you something during off peak hours!
4. Local Magic Clubs
While most club members are not professional magicians, it offers a platform for hobbyists and those who are passionate about the craft to perform , discuss and showcase tricks & effects. On some occassions, you may get a chance to meet the most popular magicians in singapore!
5. Virtual Magic Shows
Since the pandemic, we have all found ways to adapt our work. Virtual entertainment has been around ever since, keeping audiences all over the world entertained at the living rooms. Virtual magic shows are a great way for you to come really close and intimate with your favourite performers and have an interactive experience.
While most virtual magic shows still cater mostly for corporate clients and are priced for group performances, there are still many performers offering their virtual shows for smaller groups or even on 1 on 1 basis.
& that's it! We hope you found this to be helpful, and would love a chance to connect if you've any questions. You can reach us at email@example.com for both corporate and personal enquiries.
