Kevin Quantum is a physics magician, giving up his physics PhD to pursue the art of magic. His new show, Vanishing Point, is his exploration of disappearance and the five human senses. And while there is no vanishing of anyone’s taste buds, this is a solid magic show.
Kevin is a good showman; he makes self-effacing jokes about his time in science, often explaining the formulas used to calculate a particular trick, and he digs into his back story of training at the hands of magicians across the UK and US – Penn and Teller included – in between the tricks. He explains that nothing he is doing is real magic, it’s all about controlling attention and nimble fingers.
The show goes between traditional card tricks, audience involvement, and slight of hand gags. It culminates with a grand finale, something that Kevin admits is not magic, it’s pure science in the form of a Harmonic Pendulum. This final trick is the most impressive, demonstrating his deep scientific knowledge.
Kevin Quantum toes the line between science and magic. He risks life and limb for the cause, and it’s worth a watch.
