Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The World's Worst Wizards' do their best to justify this, 'but it is clear from the skill with which they perform their tricks, that they could claim to be one of the cleverest illusion acts currently around'. Mr. Elbourne has just issued 100,000 copies of the fixture lists for the Villa, Birmingham and Albion football clubs. It is on four pages - the front and back having the registered border design of the Hippodrome, with details showing posters and flyers. These are all available for the asking.
