A semi-improvised comedy magic show with the fabulous Lucy Darling

Recorded December 2019 at the Chicago Magic Lounge and present to you as a small gesture of kindness in these uncertain times.

With massive event cancelations, self-quarantines, and social distancing, it can be hard to keep your mood up and avoid feeling trapped in your own home. I can’t do much, but I can offer this small ray of sunshine. I hope this show will make you smile and forget about your worries, if only for an hour. Grab a drink and imagine you are here in this beautiful theatre with us. I’m so happy to be able to make this show available to you for free, while we wait for things to return to normal. 
Please stay healthy and safe. All my love,
Carisa & Lucy
