  Jerry Sadowitz
Comedian, Magician, Psychopath

Friday 25 April, 8.00pm
Jerry is best known as an offensive comedian but he is also one of the world’s most skilled and creative card magicians. In this show you'll get to see some amazing sleight of hand and some original magic projected on a large screen which means you automatically get a front row seat without having to actually sit near him! Not for the easily offended, but a fantastic show of slick card tricks,slight of hand and hard hitting humour which comes at you like a runaway train. Please note that this show is not suitable for anyone with less than £22.50.
