 Comedian: Otiz Cannelloni
Usually billed, somewhat misleadingly, as a magician, Cannelloni is really a good old-fashioned end-of-the pier variety act who wouldn't look out of place on Sunday Night At The London Palladium.
The magic, such as it is, is just one of any number of props and gimmicks he uses to jolly his act along.
But thanks to Cannelloni's zippy, self-deprecating patter and knowing, absurd humour, it turns out to be a full-on pantomime of unadulterated, if unsophisticated, fun from an instantly likeable performer.
