Many of you will not have heard of Luis Piedrahita, who is a household name in Spain where he has appeared on his own TV show for many years. He is also, somewhat unexpectedly, a standup comedian—and not unexpectedly he is known more for the latter than the former. Despite his varied talents, his abilities as a magician are not widely known in non-Spanish speaking countries. We’re going to change that this month with John Lovick doing the digging. If you read the digital edition of this issue, you’ll find many videos showing Luis performing amazing coin magic.
The Academy of Magical Arts 51st Awards Ceremony took place in Los Angeles on May 4th, 2019. John Lovick reports, with photos by Taylor Wong.
Columnists aplenty we have this month, with “Cardopolis,” “Panmagium,” “Conjuring,” “Left-Handed” (with video), “Chamber of Secrets,” “Secrets Within Secrets” (with video), “The Expert at the Kid’s Table,” “Magicana” (with video), “The Eye,” and “On the Slant.” John Lovick reviews tricks and Joe M. Turner reviews videos.
