Steve Short is a professional magician and raconteur. His subjects for his talk was the life and times of Morecambe and Wise. Right from the beginning he was telling jokes, demonstrating his magic and generally keeping the audience entertained.
He talked us through how they got together, the influences on their act (Abbot and Costello) and their rise to fame - with the inevitable failures on the way.
There was audience participation with impressive magical illusions. The whole event was presented extremely well with Steve measuring the humour, comedy and magic with a deft lightness that left the audience uplifted and singing "Bring me Sunshine" as we left the Festival Hall.
