January 2015 Issue of Genii Just Arrived !!!

The January 2015 issue of Genii just arrived in Minot, N.D. Jay Alexander's interview about client / friend Robin Williams was very touching. David Kaye's column is excellent (as usual); Dale Salwak's article is very thought provoking. There are too many highlights in this issue to point out even ju...

Re: hank lee out of jail

I think TED M said it best. It was more than just a single wealthy customer that was ripped off. Many average magicians, like myself, were treated very badly by Hank Lee. It was not uncommon to order something in winter and in the middle of spring you finally received what you had paid for. Years ag...

Re: hank lee out of jail

Don't forget Richard, you hit the nail on the head. Hank Lee said to hold onto your Magic Factory gift cards for later use. You called him on that garbage, then he sold his entire magic inventory to someone else. Gift cards now worthless. Just that act alone makes him the last person in the world I ...

September 2014 Issue of Genii

Re: Free Shows

I like Michael Ammar's advice. I can't remember where he said it, but it's something like this. (I'm paraphrasing it)

Them: You'll get lots of free publicity for doing the charity show.

You: The only thing I will be promoting is that I do free shows for anyone that asks for a free show.
