Prepare to be blown away by SA’s top mentalist Russell Fox

A night of psychological illusions and mind-bending tricks

Grab the chance to have your mind read by an illusionist or be blown away from insane mental tricks all over Zoom. Every Saturday SA's top mentalist, Russell Fox, will blow your mind with his psychological magic and illusions. Plus, enjoy a front-row seat to SA singer-songwriter Samuel Serwanga’s live performance each week during their Sundown Sessions. 

"Using Zoom as the platform has allowed me to interact with my audience just as I would in theatre," Russell told CapeTownMagazine. Even though the show has shifted online, you can still marvel at all of Russell's classic tricks and mind games. "Folks can experience things like me reading minds and doing some crazy magic right through their screen," explains Russell.

"Not to say too much, but I've created some unique illusions for this virtual show that also happens in the homes of the audience," says Russell. All you'll need to do is watch and be amazed as Russell demonstrates the incredible power of persuasion to influence your perception. By the end, he'll have you right on the edge of your seat with your mouth open and your eyes transfixed.   

To squeeze in even more entertainment Samuel Serwanga, aka Sam Jam, is set to perform each week. "He brings what I like to call the ocean to the shore, his music being like the surf; majestic, tranquil and a beautiful journey," s Russell gushes over Samuel. You can expect some of Serwanga's fan favourite pieces like “Christine, My Friend” and “Forgiveness” along with his brand new song “Young”. 

Everyone is free to watch the show live via Zoom every Saturday at 6pm. Russell Fox and Samuel Serwanga are performing in aid of artist relief funding. If you would like to donate more,  you can do so when you purchase your ticket via Quicket.
