David Parr’s

Cabinet of Curiosities

Join award-winning magician David Parr for a guided tour of his collection of magical curiosities. David has gathered his favorite artifacts and stories to share with you in this 75-minute show of mystery and magic. Every shelf of David Parr’s Cabinet of Curiosities offers an encounter with something weird and wonderful. Each object has a story — some strange, some spooky, some amusing, and all of them amazing.

Which curiosities will be featured in tonight’s show? There’s only one way to find out: pick a numbered tag and that will lead to the next mysterious item on the shelf. It might be a macabre toy from 18th-century France. Or a golden goblet from a dinner party in Renaissance Italy. Or maybe a treasured book from David’s childhood. Some objects look deceptively ordinary — an old deck of playing cards, perhaps, or a spool of silver thread. But in David Parr’s hands, they come alive with magical possibilities… Magic fans will recognize David from his appearance on the hit TV show Penn & Teller: Fool Us. There, his magic was put to the ultimate test in front of the cameras, a live audience of hundreds, millions of TV viewers, and two very savvy Las Vegas magicians. (Spoiler alert…) David fooled them all and not only took home the coveted Fool Us trophy, but also won a guest spot in the duo's live show at the Rio hotel in Las Vegas!

Stevie Starr

The Professional Regurgitator

He is the only performer in the world who has made the finals of every Got Talent! Show he has appeared on and he just won the finals in the recent Germany’s Got Talent.

Stevie Starr (also known as "the Professional Regurgitator") is a Scottish performance artist known for being a professional regurgitator. In his act, he swallows various items, such as coins, lightbulbs, balloons, nails, billiard balls, dry sugar, lighter fluid and goldfish, and then regurgitates them. He has never described exactly how this is done, and the implausibility of some of his regurgitations have led some to believe that he is an illusionist. Starr has a busy international touring schedule for his longer solo act.
