Copperfield Review Waco TX 2/24/09

My wife and I saw David's show last night. I have seen DC live 5 times. Twice in the 80's, once in the 90's and 2 years ago in Austin. The show was the same as 2 years ago minus 'PORTAL' and plus 'THE FAN'. There has been a purposeful, presentational change over the last few years, (since David Blai...

Re: CRISS ANGEL ONCE IN A LIFETIME DEAL - BETTER JUMP ON IT!

There is a way to say "F You" to an audience. The AMAZING JONATHAN does it nightly, but he has learned over 1000's of shows and many years how to fit that moment into his character. When A.J. does it his crowd loves it and roars. When Criss does it, he thinks he can roll like his good frie...

Trixie Bond is moving

I just heard that the busiest children's magician, Trixie Bond, will be moving to Austin TX.

Houston's loss is our gain!

Also I believe that Lawrence Haas is moving to our fair state.

Keep sending your best magi to Texas.....we got plenty of room!
