On Wednesday, May 14, 2008 at 7pm--Midwest Magic is
proud to present antoher Chicagoland exclusive, direct
from England: WILL HOUSTOUN

Will is on his way to LVMI in Las Vegas as a featured
performer. The lecture contains close-up/parlor magic
using cards, coins and even a trick using just your
fingers! The material is all fully explained, along
with some of the reasoning behind it, with the aim
that everyone who attends the lecture will take
something away from it. The routines that are taught
include:

Flipfly--Three coins jump from one hand to the other
while in full view of the audience. This variation on
three fly includes particularly clean displays and a
very visual handling of the middle coin.

Special K--The entire deck visually flips face up
apart from the spectators selection that was inserted
into the face down deck a few moments earlier.

Bouncing Shadows--A handling of shadow coins that
flows smoothly and removes the need for any adjustment
of the coins from the moment the routine starts to the
moment it ends.

Fire coins--Three coins appear from a candle flame one
by one then vanish back into it. This routine includes
a motivation for the use of flash paper that can be
used wherever a candle is being used to light the
paper.

Guesstimation--In this gambling routine the aces are
located from a shuffled deck apparently through
masterful estimation.

Con-tract--This is not a routine, rather a beginning
and ending to any gambling routine that generates
interest at its start and a surprise twist at the end.

Bakers Three Fly--Four coins jump visually from one
hand to another in a variety of ways. This routine
adds variety to the visual coins across plot and as a
result has a totally different feel to three fly.

Comments on Will's magic: "Watching coins fritter
with sophistication around that man's fingers made the
endorphins in my eyes crackle"--Max Somerset.

"That is the freakiest looking thing I have seen in
the last few years--makes the twisting arm look
tame!"--Nick Einhorn.

"Your bending finger trick made me cringe...In a good
way. Superb!"--Wayne Dobson.

Tickets are $20 and seating in order of reservation,

Will just lecture here in Baltimore and he's good! Very nice coin/card work. Too good for being only 22 yrs old.

And Will did an equally good job here. Very good lecture and a really nice guy. If you get the chance to see him don't miss it. I'm seeing him again at LVMI.
