Ian D Montfort: Touching the Dead

4 Stars

****

Ian D. Montfort’s way of giving a literally spell binding performance is to talk slowly and precisely. His movement matches his delivery as he looks and assesses the individuals in the audience. Hailing from Sunderland, he describes himself as a spirit medium who is in touch with those on the other side.

With the help of his spirit guide, his ability to identify members of the audience and give personal details is uncanny. He can also put them in touch with famous celebrities such as Elvis Presley and John Lennon.

He performs several amazing illusions including an assist from William Shakespeare who helped him quote some lines from the Complete Works chosen at random. Between the extraordinary feats, he has a witty line of patter. This blend of humour and magic is a winning combination.
