Don't know if anyone has seen it yet but on revision3 or youtube there is a program called scam school Brian Brushwood hosts it. He is a magician that does college tours.

He has a lot of bar scams/simple magic/ puzzles!

No problemo. There are also some very easy magic tricks if anyone is a beginner and is interested. I think it is a weekly show.

Glad to see other Scam School fans here. A lot of good bar bets and fun tricks for parties. Good for taking a night off from a lot of the 'serious' party magic.

I will add that while I personally LOVE the show, I am surprised at what he is willing to put out there for the public. Fortunately he clearly knows where to draw the line most of the time and just performs anything that's over a layman's head, but there are a few concepts (which I cannot really remember now) that he definitely exposed that got my magician sense tingling.

Just a thought...

I don't think that it's really exposure in this case. These to me are simple bar bets/wagers that will not hurt a professional close up magician. Plus, if someone is searching for a bar bet to do at a bar, they're more than likely a magician at this point anyway. I really don't think he's giving away anything drastic.

Brian brushwood is an interesting fellow. I'm an extremely big fan of scam school. he inspired me to perform the human blockhead, and eat fire along with many other things. I would like to compliment him for what he does.

I watched pretty much all of the Scam School videos on youtube and found them very entertaining. Many are just harmless little games to earn a free drink in a bar. Among my favorites were:

- the human chimney
- cheating at poker
- the lift
- coint trick that fooled Einstein
- fast & loose
- shims made from a coke can to open locks

Best,
G.

I find this one of the most enjoyable shows on the interwebs. Brain Brushwood is an excellent character and I would say he very clearly knows where to draw the line in what to show and not show.
The latest episode is very good, more an exposure than the other where I feel. Nice and brave.
I'm always honest about when I'm lying. And I'm always lying...

TiVo has an option where I can download weekly tricks from the net onto my TiVo from Scam School.

Brian is a riot and quite likeable.

It's a good series, and he's even used ideas of mine or mentioned my ......episodes!

I sometimes worry that the stuff he gives away is too good, such as Miraskill or the Gilbreath Principle. On the other hand, I've noticed that you can often perform things for Scam School fans from episodes about 2 months back or so, and still fool them with the things.

Oh wow I didn't know this existed. I remember Revision3 from a while ago when they did a series called The Broken (hacker show). They did a few episodes then stopped. I'll have to revisit them now.
