If you in the Palm Springs area on a Saturday night through May, there is a great magician table-hopping at a local restaurant and landmark of Palm Springs. It is Lyons English Grille and the magician is none other than Marvyn Roy.
After chatting a bit about a friend of both of us, he proceeded to fry everyone at the table with some great magic (at least my wife didn't ask me why it didn't look like that when I do magic - she is a compassionate person). The four of us made enough noise applauding that I think we drowned out the piano bar in the lounge area.
If there is such a thing as the Ambassador of Magic, Marvyn should be it - when he talks about magic he radiates the love of the art. After you have talked with him and then see the great performance he gives at every table (didn't see one repeat trick in about 45 minutes of watching him perform at about four other tables) you really get enthused about the art. And you can tell that he is having a great time.
All right, done gushing - check it out if you are nearby - I think you'll agree.
