The man in his mid 20s jumped onto the stage, as
the famous magician Great Velcro was busy performing
his act at Brighton's Komedia comedy club, and
ran away with the rabbit, called Georgina, which
was placed in the hat.
Some of the members from the audience gave him a
chase but the man disappeared with the rabbit in
The Sussex Police have asked anybody who have seen
the man to contact them. The man as described by
the police is 5ft 10 inches tall, skinny and with
blond ponytail and was wearing jeans and a green
jacket at the time of theft.
The disheartened Velcro said if the person who took
Georgina is able to look after the rabbit then that’s
ok with me. "This person may think that using
a rabbit in a magic trick is not the right thing
to do but I only use her on rare occasions as she's
a family pet,” he said.
Velcro however was skeptical whether the rabbit will
get the same attention as it used to get from the
audience who would always want to stroke her.
