THE MEGA ILLUSION SHOW – Suitable for any audience size
Slightly Unusual’s MEGA SHOW will guarantee that people will come up to you and congratulate you on a great event – even if you don’t want them to.
The show features non stop epic grand illusions. Watch as a girl is flattened like a pancake in front of your very eyes, marvel as two people change places in less than a second.
Many of Slightly Unusual’s illusions have been custom designed for their shows. This means they cannot be seen anywhere else but in one of their Mega Shows. Slightly Unusual’s Mega Show features unique presentations that are bizarre, strange, hilarious and unlike anything you have seen before.
THE ILLUSION SHOW
Sometimes clients haven’t got the space or the budget for Slightly Unusual’s Mega Show. It is for this reason that they have developed a show that has the same feel as their Mega Show but without the Grand Illusions. Instead Slightly Unusual use custom designed smaller illusions which will fit into most performance spaces.
This show features Slightly Unusual’s signature routine ‘Heads Off’ in which a girl’s head is removed with no cover whatsoever.
Imagine having Slightly Unusual open your business conference with a magical production of your MD who then goes onto give their Keynote Speech.
Imagine starting your Wedding reception with one of our Mega Illusion Shows except the opening illusion is a magical production of the Bride and Groom who then sit down to enjoy the rest of the show.

“Slightly Unusual is a brilliant and exciting comical illusion act, The show comprises laughter, magic, gags, slight of hand tricks and major illusions to produce an hour of fun. The guys are fantastic, enthusiastic and very talented. The speed at which they execute the illusions just adds to the wow factor, and makes the impossible happen in front of your very eyes.”
“When I first spoke to you less than a week before the event, it was a real pleasure discussing with you what the various options might be for the evening. The resulting package went down a treat. All our guests are still talking about the amazing close-up table magic and the brilliant illusion show. Additionally, from my point of view, I really appreciated the professional way that you adapted to the location, and the audience, without fuss.”

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
