Second night of the Comedy Magic Tour – Maulds Meaburn – Cumbria
Things are still going well on the tour, comedy magic in Cumbria seems to be going down well. The residents of Maulds Meaburn were very receptive tonight and Helen looked after us very well. Again only a few miles from Penrith so luckily there was only a short drive to the venue.
This time, we are on the edge of the Lyvennet Valley, again very picturesque and peaceful. The show needs to be versatile. Last night we played on the flat, without a stage tonight a beautiful new stage had been erected.
Performing on a stage is very different from performing on the same level as the audience. It is true that sight lines change and a trick which looks good from one angle doesn’t look so good from another. I don’t perform any close up magic when on a stage.
However, this is not the only issue, your relationship with an audience is very different when you are a few feet above them.
This turned out to be a great night, Barbara from Highlights was there, and we got good feedback from the audience. We now drive east towards Newcastle.
