In preparation for his show FULL HOUSE – OR HOW TO GET BANNED FROM EVERY CASINO ON THE PLANET, Tim Ellis has released a series of micro magic clips highlighting some of the mindblowing magic from the show.
FULL HOUSE is about poker. The history of the game, it’s colorful characters and – of course – the absolute most surefire ways to win! You’ll see astonishing feats of sleight of hand as well as magic that simply cannot be explained – all close enough to touch (only 52 seats per show) plus all the tiniest details will be blown up on the big screen.
When Tim premiered this show at the 2007 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Helen Razer wrote in The Age “If green felt and high-suited hole cards arouse you, you simply must buy into this comic sit’n’go. If the previous sentence made nothing like sense, then you’re a poker naif. So, I’m going to look for you the next time I’m in the Vegas Lounge, take all your money and shout you a ticket to this show with the spoils. Oh yeah. Mama needs a new pair of shoes. Poker nerds, such as your mildly desperate reviewer, will love this performance.
Sitting at a card table, magician Tim Ellis deals out some tremendous tricks. As he does the impossible, he recounts stories of poker’s true heroes. Doyle Brunson, Poker Alice and Wild Bill Hickok shoot and play their way through a lively narrative told with the deference of a true poker buff. Ellis is witty, truly engaged and magical. Cards, as any ardent player will tell you, are about wonder and respect. Ellis demonstrates both. This is a must-do for card sharps and those with an interest in sleight-of-hand.”
