Posted: Mon Feb 25 2013
The man in the dragon suit is back, along with his Chihuahua, Mr Piffles, with a hugely entertaining hour of grumpy magic. Piff’s search for a princess provides the frame for a range of terrific tricks, from card work to cannons, and consistently funny comic business. The cute-to-curmudgeonly ratio is spot-on: on the one hand, no one could resist an adorable doggy placed in a straitjacket or blindfolded with ‘the electrical tape of dreams’ (no, not really); on the other, Piff’s weary demeanour is neat schtick that also provides a perfect get-out if things go wrong. This show was nominated for the 2012 TO&ST Time Out & Soho Theatre Edinburgh Cabaret Award.
