Jarred Fell vs our questionnaire

Jarred Fell - Mayhem of Magic

1)How did you get the name of your show this year?
Was a funny situation actually.. I had just done a gig at the Classic on Queen St and I went outside after the show and this guy out of know where came up to me and said  "The king of Mayhem" and I didn't know what to say to this guy..then I sat down to write this show and the name and I didn't want it to have a name like a normal magic show then that popped into my mind so I went along with that Name " Mayhem of Magic"

2)Tell us your favourite punchline
Um..would have to be my opener line which I'm sure everyone has heard now since I ain't changed it since I started hahaha umm.."I come from a family of Magicians, when I was 6 my dad vanished with a poof" Yea corny but it works ha.

3)  What's been your best heckle?
It was the late show at The Classic , everyone was drunk and a guy at the back stood up and yelled " I'll cut you"

4)What was your response?
" What, in half? I'm the magician not you so sit down, shut up ...and we all know your gonna disappear with a poof later too"...Yea I was shit scared of this guy but I knew if I had the audience behind me then he'll shut up. Luckily the audience turned on him .

5) What's the craziest thing you've ever bought on TradeMe?
Probably a Betty Boop statue

6) Aside from yourself, who would you kill to see at this year's festival - and why?
Um..that's a tough one because there is just a great line up of acts...Wayne Brady..I love improv comedy and I think it's a totally different art form in its self .. would actually love to see Ben Hurley's new show as he's been overseas a lot and tells great comedy.

7) What was the last film you watched?
88 Minutes , Al Pacino's new movie, a thriller, on dvd of course. I recommend seeing it
