Renowned magician, comedian, mime artist, inventor and unusualist Raymond Crowe brings his full-length intimate, extraordinary and unconventional show to Byron Bay for two shows only on Sunday February 8 at the Byron Theatre.

Fresh from more than 50 sell-out shows of The Illusionists 2.0, Raymond Crowe’s originality and uniqueness will make you laugh, cheer and gasp, with his original breathtaking illusions, comedic scenes and hilarious audience participation.
