Blackpool 2011 European FISM Prize winners
The Saturday night show featured the handing out of prizes and performances of the winning acts. General Magic : Charlie Mag (SPAIN) Illusion : Cubic Act (FRANCE) Micro Magic : Yann Frisch (FRANCE) Card Magic : Miika Pelkonen (FINLAND Manipulation : Dion (NETHERLANDS)
It was quite a controversial night because the MC, comedian George King got slow clapped off the stage, and did not return to face the audience in the second half, instead he introduced the acts over the PA from backstage. Talk about a tough crowd. Did I think he was bombing? yes, did I join in the slow clap/heckling? no.
Anyway, on a nicer note, here is the cubic act which won the european fism 1st prize and I tip them to win first prize at FISM proper, held in 2012, also at Blackpool. A great act and a real fooler too!
