Re: Wonderball

This remains my favorite when it comes to Zombie presentations (the Zombie begins around the 2:40 mark, but the whole act is great).

Re: Sherlock fans, rejoice!

For you 'Dr. Who' and 'Sherlock' fans that might not have yet seen it, enjoy 'Wholock'. It's extremely well done:

Having just finished the new Season 3 opener, I feel I can say safely say that, if you're a fan of the series, you'll be immensely satisfied. It's like watching a great magic trick, and one of our own even makes a brief appearance. Yes, I think this entire episode will have particular appeal to magi...

Re: White Magic

Couldn't agree more, and I hope to be able to attend one of Derren's live shows someday. No question that Andy plays a very important part. The absence of his talents from one of the previous stage productions (Svengali, I believe) was palpable. Derren was still in fine form and delivered a show bet...

Re: White Magic

Having now seen the shows, I'll suggest that my earlier insight is more true than not. This format has worn out its welcome. I think it still works quite well for David Blaine because he essentially gave birth to it, on television anyway. Time for a new format, methinks. It's all just starting to ru...

Re: White Magic

I wasn't able to see any of them. Been trying to find them online. I've seen JB Benn in past television specials and found him to be very underwhelming.

Re: Do yourselves a favour

I was complaining? Not that I'm aware of. I'm interested. I like new ideas and improvements. I happen to think details do matter, in everything from presentation to props (the devil's in them, as they say). I was simply comparing my observations and experience.

Thanks, Tony! Just what I was hoping for. Love the paperclip bit.

Re: Do yourselves a favour

I'm not sold on the Speed Loader wallet, so sell me. The only time I've seen it is in a video of Aaron Fisher's routine (a nice routine by the way). He had the wallet wrapped in a couple of rubber bands (I assume this is the way it's meant to be used), but once it was opened the card was simply in a...

Re: Derren Brown Retrospective

Derren represents the finest of our craft. Clever, charming, attractive, smart, and engaging. If you've not yet caught his tv special from last night (The Great Art Robbery), it's wonderful. A crash course in misdirection for viewers (Derren even teaches a basic watch steal, and quite in detail). I'...

Re: New Blaine Special

I don't know JB Benn personally, but he seems like a skilled magician and nice guy. Unfortunately, everything I've seen him do on television just seemed like so much aping Blaine. And not very well, at that.
