Wal interviews Cosentino the Grand Illusionist ahead of his New Zealand Twisted Reality Tour – watch the interview
Cosentino is as cool in real life as the slightly heavy-metal pierced magic fiend portrayed in his tour poster. He has the kind of presence of a youthful Marilyn Manson however his demeanour and personality couldn’t be a as far removed, in fact he’s very pleasant, it’s hard to believe this modern day ‘Houdini’ has taken out Dancing With The Stars and was runner up in Australia’s Got Talent, and bagged ‘International Magician of the Year’
COSENTINO the Grand Illusionist, will be bringing his spectacular new live show ‘TWISTED REALITY’ to Auckland August 29th & Wellington September 2nd 2015.
This is the first time Cosentino will be visiting NZ with his ‘Twisted Reality’ the full show that promises to pull out all the tricks (no pun intended) and amaze Kiwi fans and new fans alike
“I’m very excited” he says. “I’m really looking forward to coming here we have a lot of similarities, just walking around Auckland it feels homely to me. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that but I’m real excited to come here the shows should be a lot of fun and the people should be engaged – we’re bringing a big show in a 40 foot shipping container so it’s going to be awesome”
If you’re looking for rabbits being pulled out of a magician’s hat then you will be sorely disappointed as Cosentino says: “There are no rabbits, so we don’t do that anymore that’s changed”
Looks like you will have to go check out the show to see what happens – rabbits or no rabbits
