Mini Review of Kane & Abel: “100 Years Of Magic” Free Workshop
Kane & Abel were running a new magic workshop that had been advertised on their FaceBook page and eventbrite. This new workshop took place on Saturday the 14th of November at 3pm GMT. Called “100 Years Of Magic”. An interactive show via YouTube with a messaging system to allow feedback and questions. This advertised show was in addition to the free "Split Egg" magic show that they have also been running in November (that I have previously posted and reviewed). Prior to the show, joining instructions were received by email. A deck of playing cards with a picture of Kane & Abel was also sent to those who had registered early for the workshop. The workshop was scheduled to last one hour and proved popular with about 30 screens viewing. Once signed in to the stream, a "100 years of Magic" graphic counted down the time to the show start. A great graphic made up of historic magic posters and icons. Technically, everything ran smoothly and any streaming issue tended to be more local issues for individual users. The show itself was part magic show, part workshop and lecture. Comprising of historic facts along with instruction about forces, french drops and even magicians eggs! It was quite a revealing workshop to inspire all ages while Kane & Abel worked through some of their favorite tricks of all time. Most tricks were reliant on playing cards. References to other acts like Penn & Teller were made throughout the show and additional live footage and promos were also played. At the end of the show, Kane & Abel gave the audience an opportunity to ask questions which was a good opportunity to have a chat. The official website is at An excellent show that was well planned.
