Why not reply "No, you want his stuff, hire him."?So when you're asked to perform these miracles, how do you reply?
Do you mean that you would perform Angels pieces, if it had been possible? Isn't that too a breach of ethics, or something?
The reason I don't like the extensive cutting, stooging and editing is not so much that it is "cheating", but more because I don't think it fools intelligent laypeople. It is not deceptive enough and is an obvious solution that is not really cancalled. But that's just my opinion, maybe I am wrong and people sit in front of the TV and believe they could as well be the "random" spectators that witness the illusions in the specials.Every magician controls what his/her audience sees. It is not only regular, its necessary.
Just wondering, but isn't this TV stuff the exact stuff that laypeople are freaking out over? So will he be as good to them in the stage show without the ease of TV/editing to help some of the magic? I'm not familiar enough with what his stage show contains so maybe someone could give a few details of why it will or will not be as strong.What you're seeing on TV is not what he's going to deliver on stage when his show opens at the Luxor.
If you don't know the difference, then you must think Elizabeth Montgomery is a fantastic magician.What's the difference between a camera trick and a double faced card?
