Free money magic show

Saville, Ian (2013) Free money magic show. [Performance]


Dr Ian Saville is one of the very few comedy acts at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, who has a PhD (in
political theatre history, as it happens). And he is almost certainly the only performer who will be bringing with him
a veteran ventriloquist's dummy with an illustrious background.

His new show revolves around money, explaining the illusions of the banking system in a way that only a magician
can. Money appears and disappears, transforms itself and changes its value in a tour de force of creative accounting.
And, of course, money talks.

Ian will bring with him a new character. Eric, Ian’s financial adviser, is represented by a dummy which last visited
Edinburgh in 1968, when he and his then owner did kids’ shows in Princess Gardens.
