Dirk Darrow: Magic Detective

Catch the show that has had dozens of sold out runs and took the top prize in North America’s 2 largest Fringe festivals with it’s crazy cross genre appeal. For the first time, Australia’s favorite comedy psychic detective is blazing his way into Tampa! Based on an obscure 90 year old short story by Dashiell Hammett and sold out at festivals all over the world, this genre smashing play is one of the only stage shows in the world which incorporates magic effects into a story that’s about anything other than magic. In this case, it’s about a bank heist.

2 Ruby Knockers, 1 Jaded Dick has been a consistent audience favorite in Canada, the USA, and Australia. It has also picked up 10 Fringe Festival Awards, including the coveted “BEST OF FEST: PATRON’S PICK” at Edmonton Fringe Festival 2015 (North America’s largest such festival), and has consistently reviewed well.

This show is part stand-up comedy, part mentalism, part magic, and part story-telling. Along with it’s predecessor Dirk Darrow: NCSSI and it’s more recent sequel 6 Quick Dick Tricks, this cross-genre detective yarn is an almost completely unique take on the 1930’s crime caper. Whereas NCSSI concentrated on genre spoofing and showcasing some thematized tricks in a quirky character, 2 Ruby Knockers is scripted from the ground up to parody an obscure novella by the master crime fiction writer and grand-daddy of all noir, Dashiell Hammett. And in the tradition of Empire Strikes Back, it’s bigger than the first show, with more explosions, more murders, and more technically difficult knuckle-busting sleight of hand. Think Sam Spade meets Naked Gun meets Penn & Teller.
