Edd Fairman amazes with tricks and comedy

Performance Review

Edd Fairman, a wizard of sorts, visited Kirkwood Community College on Nov. 14. He came to perform a magic show for students during the activity hour in The Café.

Unlike the mysterious style of David Blaine, Fairman practiced a much more down to earth and slightly goofy style by mixing comedy with a variety of magic tricks.

His various tricks involved playing cards, telepathy, cell phones, money and, in his most creative trick, a copy of 90's Trivial Pursuit.

One of Fairman's tricks involved taking a $1 bill from a volunteer. In the trick, he turned her $1 bill into a $100 bill and then seemingly made the bill to disappear. The $1 bill reappeared inside a kiwi during another trick later in the show.

Another unique part of his show was the amount of audience participation involved in the performance. Fairman kept his audience laughing and entertained with his clever jokes and creative tricks.

Fairman also used many volunteers he pulled out from the audience. While most magicians tend to use two or three volunteers over the course of a show, Fairman accepted volunteers on almost every trick.

When performing a trick with his copy of 90's Trivial Pursuit included four volunteers from the audience. One of Fairman's volunteers, Danielle Pollock, liberal arts emphasis, stated she enjoyed the event.

Hayley Jones, early childhood education emphasis, was another volunteer. She said, "He was cool and he gave me a soggy dollar."

Overall, Fairman was very well received by the crowd and gave a great performance.
