Dublin, Ireland


MacPhisto: [sings] "Even the greatest stars... discover themself..." [approaches iPad on a stand; chuckles as he sees a devilish face superimposed over his own image] " the looking glass..."

Crowd: [laughter, whoops and whistles]

MacPhisto: [inhales] "Hello... you lovely little leipreacháns." [sniggers]

Crowd: [laughter and whoops]

MacPhisto: "MacPhisto is my name."

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "I'm Irish, actually."

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "Mac-Phisto, get it?  Isn't everyone Irish, who wants to rule the world?"

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: [chuckles] "I've a message for you little island people. Build that wall!  Build that wall!  Build that wall!"

Crowd: [boo]

MacPhisto: "Call it a backstop. Call it a peace wall. Call it a border. Whatever – just build it!  'How?' I hear you ask. Just let the passions flow. A little bit of distrust, some bigotry, some jealousy, and watch that wall emerge. In people's hearts... and minds. Brick by brick, prick by prick!" [laughs]

Crowd: [whoops, whistles and applause]

MacPhisto: "And remember, Dublin... it's when you don't believe I exist – that's when I do... my best work."

[Acrobat begins]

MacPhisto: "Don't believe what you hear. Don't believe what you see. If you just close your eyes... you can FEEL THE ENEMYYY!  Haaa!"
