'The Naked Magicians' coming to Odeon Theatre Oct. 7

The Naked Magicians, the world’s naughtiest and funniest magic show strips away the top hats and capes to promise full-frontal illusions when the show appears at the Odeon Theatre at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex on October 7. The show is packing theaters around the world including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, UK with an extended run on London’s West End.  Tickets go on sale Tuesday, June 5 at 10 a.m.

Starring the clever and seductive Mike Tyler and Christopher Wayne, two of Australia’s most famous magicians, The Naked Magicians combine magic and muscles with riotous laughs that take magic to a whole new level.

“Good magicians don't need sleeves and great magicians don't need pants,” says Tyler.

“Deliciously naughty” and “my cheeks still hurt from laughing so much” are among the most common online posts from audience members of sold-out shows in Australia, Great Britain and Asia. The Sunday Herald declares The Naked Magicians as “definitely one of the most visually stimulating magic shows in the world,” and Fringe Review UK says “we were left with laugh induced aching jaws.”

The 31-year old buff bros went from best friends to partners in prestidigitation in 2014 following several boisterous audience members asking them to make their clothes disappear.

"It's kind of crazy because magic is the second-oldest profession ever and we couldn't believe that no one had combined the two things that everyone loves — magic and nudity," says Wayne.

The Aussie duo have been performing magic for nearly 20 years. The broad-shouldered Wayne, a proud owner of a freakishly long tongue, is the first Australian magician in TV history to have his own TV series. More Than Magic aired in Australia, New Zealand, England, as well as the United States. The sporty tan lines and incredible physique seen on stage hint at Tyler’s Speedo-wearing days. He swam competitively at the Australian National Championships and Pan Pacific Games before becoming a professional magician for corporate events around the world.

“Being on stage doing magic without relying on pockets or sleeves does add that extra challenge and ups our game,” Wayne says. “When we say ‘abracadabra,’ the audience isn’t always looking at our hands,” Tyler jokes.

Tickets will be available at the Greensboro Coliseum box office, online at ticketmaser.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000. This show includes coarse language, sexual references and some nudity and is intended for audiences 18+. For more information go to www.nakedmagicians.com.
