KC Fringe 2018: ‘Tim Saves Christmas’
‘THE GREAT & POWERFUL TIM SAVES CHRISTMAS’ BRINGS COMEDY AND MAGIC TOGETHER LIKE NEVER BEFORE AT KC FRINGE
International touring magician and comedian The Great & Powerful Tim is roped into a holiday adventure after a magic trick goes awry, killing Santa Claus. It’s up to Tim to save Christmas with his hilarious mind-bending illusions, with lots of fun audience participation. Featuring cards that appear inside sealed cans of spam, magical lie-detecting cargo shorts, a Nintendo Powerglove that reads minds, and a bullet catch routine using laser tag guns.
Tim’s shows blend hilarious improv comedy, mind-blowing original magic with fun props, and a scripted story and special effects, for a theater experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen. After getting his start in professional magic on the stage at Orlando Fringe five years ago, Tim has been developing and performing new original shows every year at fringe festivals, conventions, and comedy clubs all over North America. He wrapped up a 7 city 34 show international 2017 tour with sold out performances at Edmonton Fringe.
Tim Hoffman(The Great & Powerful Tim) is a former performer at Orlando’s SAK Comedy Lab and has trained and performed improv comedy at the UCB Theatre in Los Angeles. He is a member of the Academy Of Magical Arts and Magic Castle and currently lives in Hollywood.
“Impeccable crowd work, talented improvisation, and self-deprecating comedy are all spot-on. Tim is just so damn charming.” – Todd Stewart, Orlando Sentinel
“Goofy as all hell, but the premise works and the show is a fun and entertaining hour.” – Wayne Leung, Mooney On Theatre
“This silly mix of magic and improv is a hoot. The real magic here is in Hoffman’s charisma.” – Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel
“Leaves you wondering how he did it.” – Roger Levesque, Edmonton Journal
“A silly, largely improvised, self-deprecating hour. Tim is full of charisma and kooky humor.” – Gabrielle Russon, Orlando Sentinel
