Re: What is your favorite trick by Harry Lorayne?

If I told Harry once, I've told him a hundred times, Close-Up Card Magic was a steal at the original price of $10.00 -- it was worth ten times that, yes, even back when it was first published. These are not just card tricks, but complete routines. A working magician could easily 'live' off Harry's b...

Re: Mental Effects to perform on the radio

This can be converted into a radio mental effect, Bryan. A CARD TRICK WITH NO CARDS This can be performed for an entire roomful of people, or for a caller you are speaking with, live.

Re: Fat "Houdini like" artist on Gong Show Tonight (Thursday)

The magician that pulled a rabbit out of his stomach was hyserical. Not a bad come-back for The Gong Show, but no one can replace the totally bizarre CIA hit-man, Chuck Barris.

There was once a mean old magician who lived next door to his two beautiful assistants. He mistreated them terribly, but they were afraid of him and his magic tricks and were too scared to leave.
