Magic - Socks classic online for the first time

Coinciding with them performing it for the first time in months (at their gig tonight at Badock Hall, Bristol University), I've uploaded a bit of Magic.

Magic, a routine which attended to our live shows will have seen in comedy clubs and theatres around the world, has been one of the staples of our set since we devised it to perform in 2010's inaugural Edinburgh Magic Festival in July of that year. It went on to be a part of ...On The Telly, our biggest selling Edinburgh show that August.

Since then it's been in the opening act of the touring show, was part of the Adelaide show, was last seen in Edinburgh as part of the Family Show Chunky Woollen Nits in 2012, and is in our club set to this day. This video clip, which I'd forgotten we'd recorded, was part of a compilation I made for CBBC for them to show to kids in schools as part of a bid for us to break into telly*. Do please enjoy it, but remember, it's better live. (It'll most likely be in the opening act of the 90 minute touring version of Socks Do Shakespeare in the Spring, see below)

* Re that CBBC video. In the end I don't believe it got shown in any schools. As far as I can ascertain, some schoolkids were simply shown a photo of us but no video clips and asked "would you like a series of this?". Amazingly we're not on CBBC yet.
