Fred Kaps was possibly the greatest magician the Netherlands has ever produced. I was never terribly enthusiastic about his work until I saw him do the famous Chinese Sticks trick. I suppose I had hardly taken much notice of him until that time. It seems I missed something! Anyway I came across this clip devoted to his work. I think it will be of great interest to magic aficionados.
There are quite a few video clips of old time magicians on this site. Here is rather a famous one by the name of Arnold De Biere. He was particularly well known for his rendition of the egg bag trick. I do this trick myself and it is one of my favourites. Anyway here is Arnold at work.
I have already posted part 3 of this series of clips in my last entry. I suppose I should start at the beginning rather than near the end! Here is part one:
I have been neglecting this blog lately mainly because I can’t think of anything to write. However it just dawned on me that a way to solve this problem is simply to post videos of various magicians until I can think of something useful to say. Here is a pretty good magician by the name of Frank Garcia. I hope you will enjoy his work.
In addition to being a magician I am also a very experienced palmist. I found this on you tube and I didn’t even know it was there!
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.
