Card Ninja: ReDeal

Aimed for children above the age of twelve, Javier Jarquin is a card dealing Ninja who quite literally aims at children. In his lethal hands harmless playing cards become Ninja stars of spinning destruction, or at the very least props on which his family orientated humour can be deftly practised. This family fun show targets the twelve year old in us all.

One has to wonder as he breaks out onto the stage without a soundtrack, how much volume - or mileage - one man can get from flicking multiple packs of cards around a room. The answer is a lot. With the help of all too willing audience members - or wannabe Ninjas – and a pack of everyday cards, Javier will impress you with his ability to harpoon foam from fifteen yards and lacerate latex in the blink of an eye. His easy, affable, enthusiastic manner does nothing to disguise his inner-Ninja however and he takes great personal offence, as all Ninjas do, when his abilities momentarily fail him in performing his death-determining feats.

A fun way to start the beginning of the day whether you’re a child or not. Like with most interactive shows, the more you put in the more you get out.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
