ED2012 Comedy Review: Alan Hudson’s Not So 
Secret World Of Magic

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Alan Hudson takes us on a journey through his magic career, starting at school when young Alan purchased his first ever magic book to “impress girls”. Performing a series of his favourite tricks from different stages of his life, Hudson is endearing and entertaining, telling silly stories about his time as children’s entertainer Al’s Me Pal, as well as revealing show secrets and awkward slip-ups on cruise ships. Towards the end of the show one trick was revealed to just a few audience members at the front due to poor staging, but never mind: this show is fun for all the family, and Hudson is an astounding magician, comic and mind reader. And it is clear that this man loves his trade.
