Tony Brent’s Magic Comedy Dinner Show
I’ve shared lots of posts during the Monkey Kingdom Event. Our last day in Orlando was a free day so we had breakfast that morning and that night we visited WonderWorks Orlando to see Tony Brent in his Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show. I’ve never been to a dinner show so I was super excited that WonderWorks & Tony’s team hosted the bloggers still in Orlando that night. The show started at about 8 PM that night.
If you’ve been to this section of Orlando then you’ve probably seen the upside down building and wondered what it was about. It looks so realistic with the trees, light posts and even the mail box all hanging upside down. It’s quite interesting just from the outside. Guests can get very hands-on with over 100 interactive exhibits, an indoor ropes challenge course, 4D Theater, lazer-tag and more. Guests to the attraction can feel hurricane force winds, a 5.3 earthquake, play virtual sports, design and ride a roller coaster, land the space shuttle, touch 100,000 volts of electricity and that’s just a few of the unique exhibits they have to offer. We didn’t explore WonderWorks because we came just for the The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show located inside WonderWorks.
Voted as the funniest dinner show in Orlando this nightly show is a great option for families. When we went our whole blogger party took up two tables but if you are traveling in a smaller group be prepared to get cozy with your neighbors. It was a full house the night we visited, and although it was full we weren’t cramped. There were kids there as young as three and Tony keeps its clean so you don’t have to worry about bringing the kids. Trust me they’ll be so wrapped up in the magic all they will be worried about is how did he do the tricks. There are two shows nightly at 6 PM & 8PM. Since Tony improv a lot during the show it may run over just a little so be prepared for that just in case. The price of the show is:
The dinner includes unlimited fresh hand-tossed cheese and pepperoni pizza, salad, popcorn, beer, wine, soda and dessert. Don’t be afraid to eat up because they keep the food coming out fresh as long as the table is ready to eat. Everything is served buffet style, except drinks.
The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show is unlike anything I’ve even seen before. My jaw was literally on the floor a few times during Tony’s performance. During the show Tony picked guests from the audience so they could also take part. I was hoping I didn’t get picked but two people from our group did have an opportunity to participate and it was not only funny but magical. We were stumped at how Tony was able to do the trick they participated in. All I’ll tell you about the trick is that it involves a one hundred-dollar bill reappearing in a lemon. Yes he made it reappear in a lemon. When I wasn’t in awe wondering how Tony did a trick I was laughing at the jokes in the show. It’s truly a one of a kind experience and one you must experience when you visit Orlando.
Tony Brent has many faces during his magic comedy show but he also wears many hats in real life. After the show we had the opportunity to sit with Tony and talk to him about his life and what he does. I was fascinated to learn that Tony’s son was bullied in school, something they were unaware of until his wife asked randomly. He has since become an advocate for his son and other victims of bullying. Tony’s also an author who has also written several books. We all received a copy of one of his books. He also offers one of his plays for free on Smashbooks. You can find out more about it in the tweet below.
