Joe Labero – A Night of Magic at Raffles (featuring burnt out punks)
It was a night of lights, sound and magical action. We were apprehensive at the beginning when we were ushered to our seats at the first row of Jubilee Hall. We could only bring our older son along as the minimum age was 6. It was only after the whole show did we truly realize why there was such an age restriction.
There was fire, smoke, amazing acrobatics and death-defying stunts throughout the night. We cringed and covered our eyes whenever someone was “sliced up”or whenever Joe had to escape from precarious situations.
In between flashy performances, there were close-up moments where Joe engaged the audience with street magic. Seated at the first row, I tried to look away whenever he asked for a volunteer. But as luck (or misfortune) would have it, I was volunteered by him for one of the magic tricks on ropes. Thank God it was a harmless family friendly trick. I didn’t want to go home with missing limbs or switched out body parts. Imagine the awkward journey home if I was stuck with another person’s legs who was wearing a skirt?
Throughout the rest of the show, Joe called out the names of the many volunteers (including mine) for responses and made numerous funny remarks. It was a testament to his good showmanship and memory.
After about 1.5 hours, the show ended and we had the privilege to be the first few to get his autograph and have our photos taken with him. And we went home in one piece.
