Be Crazy With Fun At Al Ghurair Centre’s Dub Fest 2015

 Al Ghurair Centre’s Dub Fest 2015 – International Street Theatre & Comedy Fair

Al Ghurair Centre has always been freakingly serious in bringing total fun to its shoppers and visitors. This year’s Dub Fest started last Thursday, 19th March, which we missed. But we made sure to be there on the second day.

At 1:00 in the afternoon, where the middle-eastern summer sun slowly sets in the west, temperature of the closed street at the back portion of the mall is perfect for the fun to begin. Along with other Dubai bloggers and kids and with the early afternoon shoppers, we watched the first show of the 2nd day by the American talented and certified skilled comedic Magician Todd Various.

In front of Paul Café near entrance four, all of us had a crazy good laugh with Todd’s tricks and comedy. I know that what he did were all possible like the swallowing of 1 inflated straight balloon right down to his throat but I am one among the kids, who were puzzled of “HOW in the world” did he do it. Pretty clever he is.

There was a moment where all of us in the audience, kinda forget what we ought to do like clapping for every after tricks, because of the obvious reason; we were completely dumbfounded by his performance. He was really good.

And this one too. After swallowing that balloon, no pop, no nothing. It’s simply, gone. Down to his tummy perhaps?! 🙂
