THE BEST IN THE WORLD WITH A PACK OF CARDS:




The magician seated at the table performing, is Richard Turner from the USA. He is considered one of the best in the world with a pack of playing cards. He has even fooled Pen and Teller! He is also BLIND and does his magic by touch!! AN AMAZING MAN!!


DEALS:


 Magic Conventions often have a “Dealers Room” where effects and magic supplies are sold. Though I am not usually a “dealer”, at this convention (Gold Coast Magic Convention 2019) I had a table and effects from both my “Lecture” and “Gala show act” available for purchase.





FLOATING TABLE


With the man who created the “floating table illusion”. His name is Losander. Many of you have seen me doing this effect over the years as I have developed 4 different presentations for it. It was great to talk to him and personally thank him for such a beautiful piece of magic!



GOLD COAST MAGIC:


I have been on the Gold Coast since Thursday afternoon working at “The Gold Coast Magic Convention”. The Convention was a great opportunity to Learn, Perform, Lecture, and catch up with friends and colleagues.
There was some lovely feedback on my work. Thanks to the artists below for letting me post their testimonials:
“Great lecture containing a lot of fantastic tips, ideas and material from a working pro” – Pierre Ulric / Professional Australian Magician
“I love a good Manipulation Act and yours was excellent” – Bodane Hatten / Stage Magic Contest Winner

“…. His calm and approachable nature shine through in his performance making him one of Australia’s most beloved magicians” - Drace Sensory Illusionist

HAPPY 60TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY TOM AND LEA

Last Saturday night was a very special performance to Celebrate my friends Tom and Lea Dumpleton's 60th Wedding Anniversary.
Tom is one of the very few people around who is able to share stories of working in a 'big show' (Wirths Circus) back in the days of travelling by train! These days Tom, Lea and their family work together as a team to produce the Circus Fans Of Australia Magazine "Fanfare".
My performance last night for their family was a complete surprise that had been organised by their granddaughter Kim. When I arrived at the function I passed on a congratulations to Tom and he said to me, "I can't believe you haven't got a show on tonight", I smiled and said to him "actually I do"! He looked confused and kept mingling with guests - later on in the night he found out that the show I was referring to was for himself and Lea 😅
It's always special being able to share my magic with friends!!
