Martin Breese Photographer

Saddened to hear about the passing of my friend. It's interesting that even though we are both magicians, virtually every conversation I had with Martin was about our other passion: The art of photography. In fact, last month he told me that he wanted to print a picture book with his favorite images...

Re: Tom Stone's "MOONSHINE" .... WOW what good stuff

I download this e-book a few days ago and I love it! It's got some great ideas and routines for the Multiplying Bottles, a stage effect with tremendous commercial appeal, that is usually performed with Ken Brooke's Multiplying Martini routine. I am thrilled to see that Mr. Stone has taken this trick...

Re: Bobby Baxter has Died

Sorry to hear of his passing. He was certainly THE funniest comedy magician I have ever seen. After I worked with him in the Richiardi show in 1983, he became a mentor of mine and helped in my transition from silent manipulator to verbal comedy performer and for that I will always be grateful. May h...

Re: British Pathe Footage of Magicians Free Online

Andrew: Thank you for looking up Pablo. In that period of time there was a huge amount of magicians working in vaudeville/music hall which can make it hard to do the research. Perhaps we could find the ellusive Pablo in old periodicals such as Stanyon's Magic or The Magic Wand. I have digital copies...

Re: British Pathe Footage of Magicians Free Online

I love the Pathe site! When I last looked at it three years ago, I found Howard Decourcy, Jimmy Rogers, June McComb, Ed Morrell, Ali Bongo, Alan Shaxon and many others. Some whom I can't quite identify such as a man named "Pablo" doing the cards & cigarettes and a person who I think is...

Re: Magic Live

Hi Guys: I really appreciate your kind comments. But, you are way to kind. Dont forget that the magic I did in my lecture was from the mind of Roy Benson. All I did was break it down with my technical analysis and then demonstrate and describe it using a multimedia presentation program called Keynot...

Re: Pick Pocketting

I agree with Ian Kendall. The Mark Raffles tape has a few interesting ideas and it is OK. But, the Freedman tape is truly excellent! However Scott, before you hunt down these tapes. I'm offering a word of advice about doing Pick Pocketing on stage. There is no doubt that it can be is tremendously en...

Re: Egg Bag

I?ve always wanted to put the Egg Bag in my show. And in my collection I probably have every kind of bag and routine in print. But, probably because of the rapid delivery and pacing of my show. I?ve never been able to develop a routine that fit with the rest of my act. I think that best part of the ...

Re: manipulating jumbo cards

The old booklet, Jumbo Card Manipulation by Dariel Fitzkee, consists mostly of adaptations of standard card sleights (like the Pass) to Jumbo Cards. There are also some flourishes. Probably the only thing in it regarding Stage Card Manipulations is the ?Jack Miller?s Back Hand Palm?. Which, even the...
