Magic on South Park

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.

a testament to the number of d'lites which have been sold. Will this be the new thumb tip or feather flower up sleeve?

In order for the gag to work, all of the tricks Cartman performed had to be recognizable by the viewer as real world, stock magician's tricks. Time to retire coin in bottle as cliche?

Reminded me of an interview with Copperfield. "If I can manipulate reality, would I want to fly....or put a cigarette through a quarte?"
