I had a boyfriend many many years ago who was a magician and fire-eater. I once assisted him on stage - my knees were shaking I was so nervous and I did nothing apart from waving my arms around and smiling .
The annoying thing was he never let me in on any of the secrets of how tricks were done.
I was watching something years later on ITV and he turned up as the ‘man-in-charge’ of things (for the life of me I can’t remember what he was actually introduced as, but it wasn’t ‘the man-in-charge’). He was high up in the Magic Circle or whatever it is.
I won’t give you his name, but over the years he turned out to be a right barsteward and (pardon me) pissed with power. So much so, he’s ridiculed all over various websites.
BTW, when he was starting out, his other job was selling toupees.
Dynorod magician inept, is one of the worst for using stooges etc & if you want to try any of the tricks he does his whole act can be purchased off ebay for £15, no skills required, as almost all are simple to do.
Yes he was a very accomplished magician. And besides his own magic act he was magic consultant for shows such as David Nixon & Paul Daniels shows. He presented a childrens cartoon series, appeared in Doctor who & inspired David Renwick to create Jonathon Creek.
He is now sadly broken wand (dead.) But was a great magician.
Both sadly went broken wand recently. Roy Horn in 2020 & Siegfried Fischbacher in January of this year.
And yes, Penn & Teller are amazing, if you want to watch them at thier very best then look on Google for their Cup & Balls act. Cup & balls is the oldest magic trick in the world, it even seems to feature in Egyptian hieroglyphics. P & T perform this to perfection. Magic is in our minds as viewers, not in the psychology & slight of hand, but in the performance. And P & T are master performers.
And strangely you choose a picture of Shim Lin, not just a winner, but a great magician. A great performer, a great innovator & an amazing manipulator of cards. His level of skill does not come easily. It requires many hours of practice & study.
