Top 10 Best Magicians Part 2

Posted by on Dec 17, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

Greetings all! I hope last week you liked part 1 if you haven’t checked it out yet be sure to. Let’s get right in to it with #’s 5 to 1. 5. Penn & Teller: So full disclosure, Penn & Teller are my favorite act. P&T are the ultimate modern magic act. They have been working together since the late 70’s and interestingly enough neither of them are sure how exactly they met. Penn, the larger and louder half, was street performing juggler and Teller, the silent one, a magic geek who was teaching high school. Today,...

Hello all, today is Magic Monday and for this Monday I thought it would be a great idea to link this weekly feature with my Tuesday Blog post  on my Top Ten Best Magician. I have already posted number 10 to 6 and I should have 5 to 1 up tomorrow. So what I thought I would do it for each Monday post a Video of a Magician  who is in my Top Ten list. So this week is the great comedy magician Roy Benson. Sadly, there isn’t much video of Benson on the internet but I was happy to find this one....

Posted by on Dec 9, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

So a website that I’ve never heard of called came up with a list of the 10 Best Magicians in the world. Here is their list: 10: Dynamo 9:  Dante 8: The Pendragons 7: Penn & Teller 6: Apollo Robbins 5: “Magic Babe” Ning 4: David Blaine 3: Criss Angle 2: Harry Houdini 1: David Copperfield So first thing I notice was the stunning amount of modern performers on this list (actually the first thing I noticed was this was a bad list). It seems like the whole of the mid 20th century was almost totally forgotten. I looked...

Hey there, I’ve started a weekly video post over on my Facebook page that I wanted to bring over to the blog.

Going Mental!

Posted by on Dec 3, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

So this past September/October, I’m not 100% which, marked my 6 years of practicing and performing magic. Believe it or not I think is was one the better decisions of my life. I have been very lucky with my experience in magic and the places it has taking me and people I have encounter along the way have left and indelibly positive mark on my life. The reason why I bring this up is that over the last few weeks I was thinking about my act and what if anything I could add to it. I already have a pretty deep repertoire, but I like to work on...

Hello Gang! It is Tuesday and that means it is blog day. To be honest this past week was pretty low key especially when compared to the last two weeks. However, I do have a few things I do want to talk about. First thing I wanted to mention, and chances are I’ve talked about this before, is the new Trivia night in Newport News. I’ve been hosting at Neo Kitchen+Bar for about a month now and it has been going really well. Trivia starts at 7pm-ish and runs to 9pm-ish, much like the one at MJ’s on Wednesday. I plan to put a page...

Busy Weekend in for Magic in Norfolk and Portsmouth

Posted by on Nov 19, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s Blog day. I guess the theme of this post is “Always be prepared!” Friday night I was performed for a fundraiser at Bruttis in Portsmouth, Virginia. Like I said last week the line was great. It was nice to see and talk with Joy Julian and Rob Reibold again. It had been awhile since I had last seen or spoken to either of them. I had just come from the Open Mic at Old Dominion run by the College Club, The Stand-Up Monarchs. Just a little side note about the Stand-Up Monarchs. I think what they are...
