Card Ninja - Javier Jarquin
COMEDY / NZ
★★★★ "Flips the whole concept of card trick on its head."
The List (Edinburgh)
★★★★ "Javier is as much a comedian as he is a ninja."
★★★★ "A rollicking, hilarious experience."
The Edinburgh Reporter
★★★★ "Jarquin draws in his audience like an industrial magnet."
Warning: this show contains ninjas, not magic. Card Ninja is an award-winning, riotous display of comedy and card stunts using playing cards as ninja weapons.
Following his journey from mild-mannered card player to silent assassin, Card Ninja is a one-man variety comedy show with upbeat humour for anyone who's ever been a little bit Ninja.
The show is always comedic but it is Javier's ability to make cards do his bidding that wins you over completely, especially as there is no sleight-of-hand or trickery involved in his increasingly impressive feats.
This edge of seat show is not to be confused with the CardNinja app, which replaces your wallet with your mobile. You should only use that to buy tickets for all your friends to see the real Card Ninja. He's ace. All five of them.
