Tim has just completed his 6th cruise so far this year – 7 more to go before he heads off to South Africa in May. It’s been a very busy season with travel to Indonesia, New Zealand, Vanuatu, Fiji, New Caledonia, Brisbane, Perth, Cairns, Darwin, Sydney and The Whitsundays! (His frequent flyer miles are going crazy!)
As you can imagine, the majority of his time is spent in transit. This last cruise (Pt Vila to Suva) was two days travelling to join the ship, two days on the ship, and two days travelling home again!
But it’s the reaction of the passengers to his show that makes it all worthwhile. So many people make the effort to seek him out on the ship just to let him know how much they enjoyed the magic.
Every now and then, some people actually take the time to write him an email:
I had the pleasure of watching your show while on a cruise with Royal Caribbean. It was the first time I had seen a magic show in person, not on TV and not a street magician. I was blown away. I’ve seen musicals, concerts, plays and comedians and nothing I had seen previously compared to your show. It was brilliant. I’ve watched TV specials on magicians and they often mention the joy they get seeing adults believe in magic again, as they did as children. I now know I never really understood what they meant. I walked away amazed and believing in magic like I was a kid again. I annoyed the hell out of my girlfriend with my excitement afterwards, I couldn’t stop talking about your show. It was the best show of the cruise and one of the best I’ve ever seen. Thank you so much for the experience.
I watched the show in its entirety last night and was blown away, and Tim magic isn’t usually my thing but your show is a great blend of all factors of not only your craft but everything that makes a show entertaining for all on all fronts. Great Show with brilliant content!
Tim is back in Melbourne for five days from tomorrow and performing two shows during his stay. Then it’s back to the airport and off to Suva again.
