After a lengthy absence, Pierre Ulric is finally coming back to Melbourne to share what he’s since learnt about the magical arts.

‘Gonzo Magic’ begins as a rational examination of the craft, but quickly unravels into madness and the delightful realisation that none of it matters, only the enjoyment of gobsmacking moments of impossible.

Gonzo / Adjective, slang
1) relating to or denoting an exaggerated, subjective and fictionalized style.
2) bizarre or crazy

“One of A Kind”– ★★★★★ – The Adelaide Advertiser
“Pierre Ulric is a master at his craft” – The Australia Times
“One beautifully enigmatic extravaganza’’ – Beat Magazine Melbourne


  • The Butterfly Club is a licensed venue. Under 18s can only attend if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
