Jeff: No, we do not post videos on this site, sorry.
Ryan: I would be lying if I said that I thought Jason was at his best given the circumstances (and no, I do not know the man, so I am not coming to the defense of a friend), but I dont think that he was terrible. I think the primary problem was that he may have been out of his elementdangerous for any magician no matter how talented. I have had the opportunity to hear a few peoplebig nameswho have been on The Tonight Show and Letterman talk about the shear terror of the experience. And I can recall seeing Doug Henning, more than once, shaking like a leaf in the wind while performing at the desk for Johnny Carson. Yet, when he would appear on Dinah or Merv, etc. he was fine.
Jason Randal has been around a long time and is a fine magician. He holds a PhD in psychology (he authored and published The Psychology of Deception in 1982, as well as the aforementioned Magic for Professionals). He also has a black belt in Karate, which is how he was introduced to magic: Paul Green was one of his students. Jason is also an answer to a trivia question: Who is the magician who appears in the opening sequence of the Richard Gere/Julia Roberts film, Pretty Woman?
