Speed Magic

 

Just like Speed Dating, just heaps more fun.

Two rows of magicians face each other - one row is the 'audience', the other row is the magicians. Each magician shows the opposite 'audience' member a trick that goes for no longer than 5 minutes. At the end of the trick, the 'audience' member provides comments about what they felt was outstanding about the presentation and also provide some feedback about what they might fix or alter with the routine.

After 5 minutes, each magician moves down one place and starts the routine again. Once all magicians have shown their trick to everyone, the roles are reversed and they now become the 'audience'.

The object is to get some valuable feedback on their act on what they might be able to improve or what was outstanding. It's a lot of fun!
