"What a fantastic Illusionist.

With out a doubt one of South Africa's top"

Russell Fox came on board with us for the shoot of our South African episode of My Super Sweet World class, to train our two birthday girls to perform an illusion.

Not only did he train them well but we were absolutely dumb founded that he was prepared to share with them an illusion of gigantic preprotion. A Levitation.

We were at first worried that the girls may not be able to pull this off in the time that they had to learn the effect, But with the experience and wisdom Russell has, he guided and trained them in just a few days to bring to stage an incredible act that was as great as any highly professional act.

And then to top it all of Russell blew our minds with his own performance the night of the party and took us on a mind blowing experience. This guy is an artist never to be underestimated.

Once again thank you Russell for being so gracious and sharing with our girls such an amazing grand illusion and performing such an astounding act, making this episode one of the best for the series.

The show will be aired on Cable and DSTV in January and February 2012

Top Class Montagu Magic

by Mareletta van Zyl-Wohlfarter

Montagu came alive with Magic and Laughter on a cold Tuesday evening at the Vic Hotel. The Divas of Montagu celebrated the magic in their lives with Magician-Comedian, Russell Fox.
Dressed up Divas and good food was, like always, part of the evening, but the highlight was definitely the Magical antics of the “Fantastic Mr. Fox”; as Russell was dubbed by his appreciative audience before the night ended.

The good news is….. Russell Fox will be back with a full Magic Comedy show and this time the whole town is invited!
