Triple-Award winning Irish comedian and science communicator Dónal Vaughan brings his science magic comedy show to the Brighton Fringe. After an extremely successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Science Magic comes to Brighton.

Prepare to enter the magical world of science. Forget Harry Potter, Dónal is the real wizard. He will show you how to put a skewer through a balloon without popping it, mix potions to create your very own volcano, set paper on fire without burning it, turn water upside-down without spilling it, conjure an invisible force to blow out a candle, make a cola bottle explode in a fountain and more.
Always exciting, sometimes messy, learn about magnetism, pressures, density, force, chemical reactions, the fire triangle, acid & bases, static electricity. And laugh your pants off while you do it.

And the best part??? You can do all the tricks at home using everyday household items. You too can become a science wizard and amaze your family and friends.

Winner – 2016 Beat the Frog World Series
Winner – 2015 Laughing Horse New Act of the Year
Winner – 2014 Tedfest Comedy Award
