Yann Frisch video

Yann Frisch continues to work on and improve his FISM winning act. He's one of my favorite performers to watch. I think this is a recent video and there are some stunning moments in it...

Re: Real Secrets Weber Bonus and Email

I'm able to download the newsletters. The download button isn't disabled for me. It's an icon in Revizzit (looks like a white piece of paper above a black arrow). I'm on a Mac, not sure if Revizzit is different on Windows machines.

Re: Provenance of using a styrofoam coffee cup as a Chop Cup

Brad, you're correct. It was William Zavis in the book Divers Deceits, published in 1973. I knew something didn't feel right as I made my first post.

Re: Provenance of using a styrofoam coffee cup as a Chop Cup

I'm almost positive that Jack Avis had a routine with a Dixie cup or styrofoam cup in his book Vis-A-Vis (don't have the book with me so can't look it up). Thee was no false bottom. You could use a borrowed cup. The gimmick was in the wand. Today, you can have the gimmick in a finger ring and pretty...

Re: Announcement of a Secret Project

If we're playing the guessing game, I'll guess Michael Skinner. Definitely famous among magicians, didn't publish much and was only 51 when he died. Plus, he had a huge repertoire, so there's got to be stuff that hasn't seen the light of day.

Who created this patter for vanishing bill?

I've seen a handful of magicians use the following patter when they vanish a large denomination bill. Was wondering if anyone gets credit for it and if it's published anywhere... Magician borrows a $20 bill and vanishes it. Then, throughout the rest of the show, whenever he refers to the spectators ...
