COVER: Barry & Stuart: Part-Time Warlocks (by David Britland)
Barry & Stuart are a comedy double act with a unique take on magic. It is a presentational style that is often as controversial as it is imaginative, as macabre as it is funny. You will not have seen them on the bill at magic conventions, but their act has made them a favorite in comedy clubs, theaters, and on television throughout the UK. Their stage shows have had five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival. Their television specials have been nominated for international awards. On YouTube their videos garner millions of hits worldwide. And recently they got a bit of recognition from the magic community when the World Magic Awards honored them with the title of Best Comedy Illusionists for 2009. Barry and Stuart are two of the most creative magicians in the UK. Perhaps it's time to get to know them a little better.
