Virtual Magic…

I’ve been dipping my toe into the world of online magic shows. Mostly on the Zoom platform. It’s pretty much a whole new art form which is both exciting and scary. Tricks that work online, tricks that don’t. Lots to learn!

One of the interesting things is that travel times are largely irrelevant. You can do birthday shows for children anywhere on the planet, as long as we agree on the start time despite time-zone changes!

Currently offering some great deals on shorter ‘virtual’ shows while I learn the ropes. If you’re interested in trying one out please contact me. Birthday kids are still featured prominently during the shows. Other kids on your Zoom party meet-up as well. Doesn’t have to be a birthday show. Family events and other groups will work too! Message me on the contact page.

Shaw Fest-on-the-Home-Front — Stuff to do #19

Love the Shaw Festival. See at least one production every season and one of their long standing actors, Jay Turvey, worked along side me in a grocery store when we were teens. No visits this year alas. Most of their 2020 season has been cancelled as of this writing but hope abounds for 2021…
In the meantime they have produced a wonderful collection of ‘Home Front’ content for patrons and friends to enjoy.
You can find a range of fun videos here including (gasp!) a pretty good magic trick! Shaw’s email list is worthy of your attention.

5 seconds of me! — Stuff to do #17

Was recently asked by Brent & Sarah, a dynamic magical performing duo, to join numerous other Canadian magicians for a charitable compilation video. 5 seconds max was the request. Well, I came in at 5:01! Snort!
This thingy is a wee bit long for a compilation but if you’ve got nothing to do for the next 8 minutes then take a gander.
A well dressed, well lit performer appears at about 6:20. Modesty prevents me from mentioning his name. Cough, cough, ahem, ahem…!
