When I was working behind the magic counter throughout most of 2010, the most asked-about magician during that time was Criss Angel.
The second-most asked about magician was Rob Zabrecky.
Now, I assumed that this was a local phenomenon - in other words, I didn't imagine that the people working behind the magic counters of Chicago and New York were getting asked about Rob Zabrecky as I was. But I got it all the time. Yes, I did know Rob Zabrecky. Yeah, he's great.
The other day I was having a conversation at the Castle with Paul Green and Robert Byrnes. The topic was "names that stand for a concept" - such as Valentino, Houdini, Einstein, Machiavelli, and Disney.
Paul Green suggested "Zabrecky."
If you don't know Rob Zabrecky, he's sort of a blend of Valentino, Houdini, Einstein, Machiavelli, and Disney.
