The curtains opened to the magic and comedy duo of Dom and Dumber with their new show called Gone Girl at Melbourne Magic Festival. Gone Girl, was not just a spectacle of magic, but a tale (or tail if you prefer) of thrills, spills and action. A classic case of dog-knapping, the performance was a work of excitement with fantastical props and wickedly mystifying illusions.
There were ample amounts of magical amusements in store for Houdini and Copperfield fans alike, all ready for some late night trickery.
In a grand awe inspiring debut of Gone Girl, Dom Chambers and Bayden Hammond of Dom and Dumber certainly impressed us. Judging by the ‘oohs,’ ‘ahhs,’ and laughter, we weren’t the only ones. They clearly have studied at Hogwarts. There was never a dull moment on stage, especially for the crowd members who were invited to play along in Dom’s quest for his pup. Some of the interactions featured disappearing jewelry, a human computer and a mysterious letter.
These two are a truly a match made in magic land. Dom’s charming and disarming comedy brought you in, while Dumber’s perverted and ever changing personalities did something, but I’m not sure what (no offense Bayden Hammond). With more shows to come, this certainly should not be missed.
