HE would be an ideal choice to test crash helmets at high speed.

Otiz Cannelloni is a performer whose show fluctuates between sheer genius and downright stupidity.

The man combines the illusion of magic with the wit of stand up comedy to produce a hybrid comic creation

Just when you suspect he doesn’t have a clue, Cannelloni removes all doubt.

When this man is on stage the dressing room empties, as the rest of the comics rush to watch and learn from his mistakes. It’s taken years of practice to make something so simple look so difficult.

Despite various television appearances – The Stand Up Show BBC 1 - Stuff The

White Rabbit BBC 2 - producers are prepared to forgive and forget, mostly forget.

Still, there’s always the alloment - if it stops raining.

Ozzi produces a family show about one of the most popular forms of entertainment – magic. It’s funny, informative and there are plenty of chances to join in.

With a light hearted touch, Otiz starts from the very first magic illusion and guides the audience through magic’s chequered story with plenty of tricks up his sleeve.

Genuine information punctuated by delightful nonsense combine to create a unique show that everyone will enjoy – from age 5 to 105.
