Re: Dynamo really is bad without the stooges and camera tric

Have to Agree w/ Richard Give the guy a chance to trod the boards for awhile. Michael Lee I don't think anyone is disagreeing with that, we're talking about the very poor performance in this video. I'm sure with a director, pre-show, stooges etc he'll put on a fine show in the tour. Just without an...

Re: Dynamo really is bad without the stooges and camera tric

The experience is more magical because of Dynamo's fame. I agree. But the lesson to take away from that isn't, "Therefore this video has nothing to teach us." Rather, it's: "If no one knows who I am except for magicians, then I am doing 'meaning in magic' wrong." Interesting cou...

They are glad to be there because he is famous, not because they like seeing him palm a coin by holding it in his closed fist before horribly ditching it in his pocket.

Re: Dynamo really is bad without the stooges and camera tric

for magicians, or real people who want experience great magic, does he really have anything to offer? He's not performing for magicians, and it's unlikely that most in the crowd know what great magic is. Ah right. So it's OK to be lousy, because the people he is working for have no idea what good i...

Do I think Dynamo's live show is world class? Of course not. No one has seen it yet. This thread was meant to be about the awful video I posted of him performing in the OP.
