This was sold to us as a show about two magicians who can’t really do magic. “Like Tommy Cooper?” I asked. “Yes – except he actually really could do magic, whereas we actually really can’t,” he said.
The two magicians are the bouffant Fabuloso and the ingenuous Dupont. They perform such feats as magically transforming bread into toast. It’s silly and charming and Mr Beet and I have been saying “Sacre Bleu!” at each other ever since so it can even claim to have a catchphrase.
