Hypnotist,Titan Knight

Titan Knight sure knows how to put on a show. Having hired out a vast space in a nightclub, Knight packs it with strobe lights, impressive multimedia and a full audience. He is also surrounded by support acts as it becomes clear, to somewhat bewildered onlookers, that the theme for the evening is a futuristic freak show. Having no previous knowledge of this made the proceeding array of danger, drag and dancing droids quite something to behold as the audience grew further shocked and confused with every new entrance onstage. I won’t spoil it for you by disclosing any further details.Despite having the grandest entrance of them all (a three minute X Factor-style introduction video), Titan Knight failed to live up to the promise. The support acts upstaged him. The audience were definitely still riled up and he maintained their energy throughout but the sensation on leaving the show was underwhelming.It was unclear whether what we had just seen was actual hypnotism. Having summoned in excess of 20 potential hypnotees, of which I was one, he only successfully controlled a few. Whilst hypnotising he simply gave us orders, which we obeyed accordingly. He seemed to be willing us on to perform for the audience and later one woman admitted that she missed acting so much that she had pretended to be hypnotised. After this confession the two women claiming to have blacked out were met with an air of scepticism.Titan Knight’s talents may be questionable but this makes the whole event all the more mysterious and bizarre. He is a true gentleman and keeps his promise to not humiliate his audience. I enjoyed the evening as a whole but the title is misleading as Titan Knight is not the main spectacle on show.

Reviews by Sam Kingston-Jones

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

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.
