This is great news. I have never met Rick but saw him headline the Blackpool Convention some years back. He was superb. As an aside I am close friends with the stage crew for the Blackpool convention and they said out of all the stars they have had on over the last number of years he was one of the nicest, most decent and easy to work with it.

All the best,

Brendan

I also enjoyed Rick's show at the Trop.
I hope he's able to to do better than previous magic shows at the Sahara; it seems like magic shows don't last that long there.

I can second the " nice guy" rep Rick has. I spent some time with him during a video shoot that he participated in. We visited him at his house in Vegas which is part magic museum, part mansion and part animal sanctuary.

It was great to hear stories of how he developed certain presentations he uses on stage.

Best,

Tim

Hi Dodd,

Well.. Rick says it is official and says July 16th is the start date. I'd take that to the bank.

Best,

Tim

Ok... Just got off the phone with Rick to make sure that he was okay with me moving the schedule forward..

I mentioned Tuesday as that is the day of the official announcement from the Sahara. The story leaked early and there was a bit of a hoopla over that within the PR department. That being the case, I have been holding my interview with him to honor that date.

Now that the word is totally out, I'll release it Monday!

Hi Dodd,

I've appreciated his skills on many levels. I've seen some of his " behind the scenes" work but to hear him in that interview makes me think he should lecture from time to time. More people need to speak like he does. He nailed it!

Best,

Tim

Dodd,

Your interviews are always superb but the Rick Thomas interview really stands out. Should be required listening for all budding magicians.

Great stuff
