one girl stage show

Ning has a solo stage show entitled "Deadly Sexy Magic". The 20-minute show features unique acts all performed to her distinct 'Magic Babe' style.

The show is available for bookings for corporate & special events, clubs and entertainment venues.

Acts & illusions featured in the show include:

Double Strait Jacket 'Striptease' 

'Magic Babe's' signature act that she has presented around the world! Ning is one of the very female magicians in the world to perform the Double Strait Jacket Escape. And, she performs the escape in a way that even Harry Houdini could not. A truly unique and sensual performance by a female magician with an two regulation leather and canvas strait jackets.

Razor Blades Tongue Twister

Ning risks great injury by attempting to link 6 lethally sharp razor blades to a single length of thread in her mouth using her tongue. To top it all off, she also swallows a flaming torch of fire with the blades in her mouth.

Psychological Smash & Stab

Ning performs a stunning version of this "Russian Roulette" style routine with a cold hard razor sharp stainless steel spike and four coffee cups. She smashes her hand down on three of the cups, leaving one untouched. If all goes well, she does not stab her hand down on her spike. The big twist on Ning's performance is that the spectator makes every decision in this deadly game.

Magic Vogue 

In this 'high fashion meets magic' act, Ning showcases her magic dexterity and brand of feminine magic by magically linking and unlinking stainless steel coat hangers!
