A couple of weekends ago, we took a break from our normal routine and went over to see the Nris show (a Thai illusionist). It was located at the Hua Hin Thailand Hilton Hotel & Resort. The show was very good with the ‘small but mighty’ audience being entertained immensely. We also found him to be a very nice guy and he was very gracious to both myself and my guests during and after the show.

We always try and support the magic scene in Thailand and were happy to attend the show of Nris and company. The show includes small magic, audience participation, some in-house built magic, hand puppet shadows and even a motorcycle production. The day we saw him it as in the smaller showroom, due to the reduced audience size. When there is a hundred or more people it is moved into the larger convention hall. When there it includes bigger scale illusions with a helicopter production. I hope to make it back to see it sometime. The current contract runs until September. Good job Nris!
