Jest in Mind

Posted on Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 7:13 AM

If you like the busker festival, you’ll love Trevor Poole’s entertaining magic act "Jest in Mind". It’s like watching a talented busker who doesn’t fill the first three quarters of the act with hollow come-ons, and doesn’t constantly hassle you for money. The premise of the act is that Poole can pull thoughts from the minds of audience members, and truth be told, I lay awake last night trying to work out how he executed some of his tricks. (It’s particularly confounding when he manages to name correctly more than a dozen cards hidden from view by audience members.) His patter is entertaining and there are quite a few laughs to go along with the “oohs” and “ahs” of amazement.

Show times: Friday Aug. 29 at 10:00, Saturday Aug. 30 at 4:00 and 9:30, Sunday Aug. 31 at 5:30, Monday Sept. 1 at 5:30, Tuesday Spt. 2 at 7:15, Wednesday Sept. 3 at 9:30, Friday Sept. 5 at 7:15, Saturday Sept. 6 at 9:30 and Sunday Sept 7 at 2:45 at Khyber 1. $8.
