I was originally going to post a video of Rudolfo a fantastic Hungarian pickpocket and magician but alas the clip has been taken down. Instead I shall post another of my favourite pickpockets the amazing Potassy whom I have admired for decades. Here he is on Spanish television. I do hope you can speak Spanish but I think you will still enjoy it even if you don’t.
This is a real gem. It is a 30 minute show from the incomparable Slydini, master of close up magic.
Here is another Slydini video. I rather like this one despite it being in Black and White. This is from French television:
Here he is once more. I actually do this trick myself quite frequently!
Here is one of my favourite magicians at work on the Dick Cavett show. The trick is known as the Helicopter Card Trick. Enjoy:
It appears that I spoke too soon a couple of posts ago when I said I was going to post the last picture of Joe Stuthard selling magic tricks. Well, I just found another one. He is demonstrating and selling the three shell game trick. This is quite a difficult trick to do and I am quite sure that not a single person who purchased it ever learned to do it properly. Still, at least you can see Joe in all his glory once again!
Here I am doing a lecture for the Hat and Rabbit club in Toronto. This is a magic club for magicians.
