Just finished Mr. Greenbaum's first article "Surprise" in the May Genii--a superlative article on the common ground between magic and comedy. The surprise factor is the key.The article was also enjoyable because of the humor integral to the article. After watching magicians like Hobson, Sankey, Sanders, et al, I marvel how they use comedy as misdirection to the point of performing the moves completely undetected.
And Harrison, I know you want us to be original but we wouldn't mind if you added a few new opening line jokes about magicians in future articles.
Discuss the views of your favorite Genii columnists.
