Keith Barry on Conan last night

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Did anyone catch Keith Barry on the Tonight show with Conan O'Brien last night? He did a pretty cool book test trick and the page that Conan and Mike Tyson looked at ended up in a pillow that Keith shipped to Conan a few days earlier. I believe he did a very similar effect on his TV special a couple of years ago. Does anyone know what this effect is called or where it is published?

Mr. Barry's routine appeared to be a single book version of Arthur Emerson's Pegasus Page routine.

It's a classic. But the best part wasn't the trick. It was controlling the minds of everybody else on the show so it would run too long and he'd be asked to come back. Brilliant!

Conan's cracks about the involved process made me laugh the most, I think if there were more time he might have wondered what the heck a pillow had to do with it, too.

there was over an HOUR worth of footage he shot in the shop. SOme of these stuff was GREAT!! He took a phone call:
"The Magic Apple, can I help you" - Conan
Caller is talking
"Uh huh...Uh Huh..., OK let me get this straight, you broke your Tarantula that you bought at the IBM Picnic?" - Conan

The phone conversation went on like that...it was quite funny

I don't see anything but Tarantino, some actor, and Smokey Robinson.
I miss Johnny Carson, too.

The magic shop was on in the segment before the guests where Conan went for a stroll around the neighborhood.

No one did it like Johnny. So very missed.
