DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Tuesdayjanuary - COSENTINO THE GRAND IL­LU­SION­IST, Chan­nel 7, 7.30pm

I CAN’T help feel­ing no­body’s go­ing to re­mem­ber Jack Vid­gen’s name in a minute but Cosentino, well, he won’t re­mem­ber ours, be­cause he’ll be liv­ing in Las Ve­gas do­ing one of those three-year res­i­dency shows only the most in-de­mand per­form­ers get. This is a re­peat of last year’s spe­cial but you’d sit through it again wouldn’t you? The Vault? The Crazy Cell? The Saw­ing Il­lu­sion? The Hou­dini rope tie-water tank hy­brid? Ma­jor re­spect here — for the phys­i­cal work, the men­tal, the homage to the long tra­di­tion of great il­lu­sion­ists. And hav­ing a one-word name is a tremen­dous omen.
