The Magical World of Chris Cross
UK- London | Jun 26 2012 | (01:06:04 - EDT)
Chris Cross has a natural, easy style (not to be mistaken for unrehearsed) and builds a rapport with an audience with the ease of someone whose been performing much longer than his age (21) would suggest. He has one-liners and put-downs a plenty and isn't afraid of challenging anyone within a 50 yard radius of his show; this is real street performing art at its best. He performs several contorting tricks that involve dislocating his shoulders and the tricks get increasingly stomach-churning as the show progresses. Using your own arms as skipping ropes is both impressive and nauseating at the same time and he finishes with an escape from a straight-jacket just as the audience counts down to one.
Chris Cross has been performing his own unique brand of close-up magic for over a decade. Since he was a kid in school he always wanted to be a magician and he stuck it out! As a result, he has traveled the world performing his tricks to thousands of people. Chris has worked nightclubs, bars, casinos, strip-clubs & beyond! However, due to popular demand and a vast wealth of experience, corporate events & weddings are his special area of entertainment.
Chris is also a globetrotting comedy contortionist & escapologist, performing his one man 5 star high-energy show to high critical acclaim. Chris is also the Artistic Director of The Carny Cabaret Show, a collective of alternative variety performers featuring jugglers, burlesque dancers, magicians, singers, comedians, sideshow artists, fire-breathers and more!
