HaHa Cadabra – Magic & Comedy show – March 23rd


In his new show Chris Dinwoodie aka Woody The Magician will be doing what he does best – Top Class Magic wrapped up in his natural Glaswegian style of humour.    A 5 x Scottish close-up magic champion, international magic champion and one of the few magicians to pass The Magic Circle exam with over 90% you can be assured his magic and mind-reading will leave your head spinning.   However, what makes Chris different to all the other magicians out there is his quick wit and sense of humour.  He’s currently the only magician in Scotland to be headlining many of the Comedy Clubs.  So this show will leave you equally amazed and entertained

Public December Shows

December 12th & 13th
December 19th

I’m up in Stirling at one of my favourite venues http://www.kiltedkangaroo.com/


If you haven’t booked your Christmas party yet and are not too far for Stirling, I’d think about giving them a wee call.

See me perform on March 9th in Glasgow

Is it too late to say Happy New Year? I’ve been a very bad magician and not been updating my blog but I’ve got some interesting stories for you.

Firstly – Come See Me Perform

On Saturday March 9th I’ll be performing my Mind-Reading routine. Basically I’ll be doing a growing head illusion, then putting a coin in a can and finishing off by putting my persuasion skills to the test in a famous magic routine involving a Spike. It’s a routine I haven’t performed for a while but I’ve decided to dust it off and spice it up a little.

Where Will I Be Performing It?

I’ll be performing it on my Sister Night. Yes, Top Class Magic is still my baby but I felt the time was right for my baby to have a wee sister and she’s called Enterteasement. Enterteasement is a Comedy, Magic, Burlesque night currently hosting monthly shows every second Saturday of the Month at The Admiral Bar in Glasgow. Although I’m totally biased it’s a cracking wee night featuring some of the best acts in Scotland. Also I’m hardly ever on the bill so it allows the audience to see different magicians every month.
Tickets and the full line-up are available over at www.enterteasement.com

Hope to see you there!

Magic Show In Feb 2012

Howdy, would you like to come see me perform some magic?  Last year I decided to open up a wee variety night called Enterteasement.  It’s a combination of magic, burlesque & comedy.  It allows me to try out some new routines jokes etc and it also allows me to work with some of the best entertainers in Glasgow.

The next show is Friday 24th February and it’s in The Pony on Bath Street. The Pony was voted best cocktail bar last year I think so it’s a nice wee modern place.  Tickets can be purchased via an online booking system called Event Brite.  It takes Paypal as the credit card charges were a little too pricey.

It’s a fantastic bill.  I managed to Secure 3 top comedians most notably Scottish Comedian of the Year 2009 John Gavin but to be honest the other 2 are just as good it was a toss of a 3 way coin to decide who would be comepere, headline and Middle Spot.  I also have a Dundee Burlesque troupe coming through.  I asked these girls to send me a video and one of their routines had me literally jumping up and down shouting. “I need these guys they’re amazing!!

So I’ll be opening the show with 20 minutes of a new routine and then I get to sit back and enjoy the show and mingle with the guests.

If you want to come checkout http://www.enterteasement.com/ or go to http://feb24pony-esearch.eventbrite.com/?srnk=2 to buy tickets.

Magician in Jumping Jacks Glasgow

If you attended the Glasgow Jumpin Jacks anytime between 2001 – 2004 chances are a really adorable drunken magician would be using his magic to try and chat you up. Ladies, that gentleman was me! Yes it’s true, a venue where I probably got a knock back off every girl in the venue (several times) is now going to be paying me to go in there and flirt with girls. I will be performing close-up magic in Jumping Jacks Every Saturday night in October except Halloween. To see me you have to book a party in there which can be done by visiting http://www.jaksglasgow.com/
