            Keith Brown has been a staple of the London Fringe in recent years and is so reliable an entertainer that reviewing his work is almost superfluous.

            He keeps switching up his act and audiences return with friends in tow.

            But here’s the thing. He’s known as a magician of course. But he really deals in confidence.

            Why do we watch a magician’s act? Because from trick to trick, he or she pull us in closer, closer to the magician and closer to the edge of our seat.

            Brown is an expert at playing his confidence. He pulls off one illusion with casual applomb and we lean in further for the follow-up.

            Hotter Than Potter is more prime Keith Brown but with some new tricks. A pre-show invite to send him an email played out in the final part of the show when the person who got a response played provided the ‘voila’ moment. Another involved having a young woman follow him backstage to rip up a card and flush it down the john. You don’t need much of an imagination to imagine that was the end of the trick.

            So it went for the hour-that-felt-like-15-minutes of Hotter Than Potter.

            Keith Brown fools us, we move in closer to get fooled again.

            That’s the game. And as in years past, we love it. So will you.

            Keith Brown is a consummate entertainer and illusionist. He entertains the audience with flair and keeps the atmosphere positive and friendly while he is pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes. I’ve watched him grow as a performer in his past four (I think) years at the London Fringe. I would happily see the show again this year, but I want anyone who wants to see him to have a chance at a ticket for his next show, which I am sure will be sold out. Plus there might be beer (and cake if that’s more your thing).

            Hotter than Potter a Polished, Magical Experience

            The most magical thing about Keith Brown is how he remains so personable and down-to-earth when he has so much talent and so much polish. Hotter than Potter is another successful Fringe show by the London-based magician and it shows continued growth in the all-so-important area of presentation.

            In a less appealing person, Hotter than Potter — thought firmly tongue in cheek — could be considered arrogant. But Brown’s skill at presenting his tricks and interacting with the audience ensures that everyone knows that, despite his prodigious talent, he’s still a genuinely personable guy. He’s in on the joke — and while he may not take himself too seriously, it’s clear that he doesn’t cut any corners with his preparation and execution.

            The personal aspect of the show is what I was most impressed about Hotter than Potter. The tricks, of course, are sublime. He’s incredibly talented, polished, and will continually present tricks that blow your mind. But it’s the moments in between ticks and leading up to them where he shows the most growth.

            His previous shows may have featured more tricks by volume, but this show feels more naturally paced. The audience feels less like they’re being presented at, but are more co-conspirators in Brown’s trickery. It fosters a community atmosphere and a convivial pace that makes the evening even more enjoyable.

            Hotter than Potter is a continuation in Brown’s development. He’s long been a stellar magician, but now he’s matching that talent with his affable personality and command of the audience. The stages are only going to get bigger in the future, but Brown’s ability to relate to the crowd and invest them in his show ensures that you’ll have a great time, whether you’re in the front row or up in the bleachers.
