Act 13 – Darren Schutz *NEED VIDEO UPLOAD*

As well as the usual line up of singers, dancers and musicians, Pot Luck attracted a few other entertainers.  Such as magicians.

You’ve heard the expression ‘so bad, it’s good’, haven’t you?  Darren Schutz’ magic show is all this, and so much more.  The ‘Disappearing Die’ trick is a highlight, encompassing both humour and novelty store conjuring.

Bernard came over all generous and gave Darren a whopping 32 points.  I suspect this was either because (a) he could see this act for what it was – a delightfully subtle yet thoroughly convincing pisstake of both hack magicians and Pot Luck contestants in general, or (b) he was thinking with his magic wand.

About potluckarchive

The web's first site dedicated to 'Pot Luck', a talent show made by the Grundy Organisation for Network Ten Australia. 'Pot Luck' ran for only one season in 1987, and enjoyed a mild revival in 1993 when some of the more ambitious acts were featured as filler on 'The Late Show' on ABC-TV. Best remembered for highly critical resident judge, Bernard King.
