Illusionist Performs on the Independence of the Seas

I’ll never forget the day 6 years ago when I was happily sailing along onboard a ferry that has just sailed out of Cork in Ireland. There was a moment when everything turned black and what I first thought was an eclipse turned out to be another ship blocking out the sun with its enormous size. That ship was the Independence of the Seas.
From that day on I had a dream about performing on this unbelievable vessel. At 154’407 tons, It was a pretty big dream! But 6 years on I have just returned from the Royal Caribbean ship and what I can only describe as a dream contract. The Alhambra theatre, which is spread over 2 decks and holding around 1400 guests, was one of the most beautiful venues I have ever had the pleasure of working.
Katia and I were fortunate enough to perform our Illusion and Aerial Show alongside some of the true great entertainers of the business. Entertainers such as Christopher Caress (Master Hypnotist) Steve Womack (Comedian) Jeff Hooper (Big Band Singer) Taffy Spencer (Comedy Magician) and Katie Setterfield (Vocalist). We had a fantastic audience, which always helps and I’m certainly looking forward to returning again next year.
Living the dream.
