Hello everyone, what an honor to have been asked by Steve Brooks to host this forum. I hope to share my experiences truthfully so that the young people may find something to help them on their journey as a Magician.
It is going to be a very busy week here in Las Vegas, with my commitment here on this forum, and my nightly performances in The World's Greatest Magic Show, I will also be making appearances at the Comedy Festival which starts today at Caesaers Palace for the week and... I am announcing for the first time to the public a very special project that I am Producing, which will be filmed on Nov. 20 & 21...so I am busy getting ready for this as well...
"The Madmen of Magic" in Las Vegas

This project has a Feb. release for network TV and DVD
Plus I have a commitment to feed Shimada's doves while he is on tour in Australia and feed The Majestix Tigers while they take a vacation from a gig in Cyprus.

Hey Paul, hope to meet you. I live about an hour from Pittsburgh. Just recently took over Tabmantables from Tabby. I have his web sites still up and running and you are still listed on magicdmv.com. Just wanted to say hello and hope to be able to keep in touch with you. Ray Witkowski

Mr Kozak,
Your performance on Caroline's (the one with the baseball bat) inspired me.
I watched it (and taped it) and said, that's what I like. I don't mean I wanted to be you, nor did I want to do your tricks(both being very polished and having GREAT routine-ing).
What I mean is, I liked making people laugh, I liked being me , I am not the guy with long hair pulling bikini clad girls out of big boxes. So when I saw that I went, whoa!

Ps. There is only trick that I ever tried to do from that show was the watch trick/gag I thought, and still do think, that it is hilarious. But after 2 months of doing constantly around my friends, they became so annoyed with it. And that's when I learned not to **** off your friends doing magic for them all the time, and save it for the real audiences!

If you want to keep friends, do not do Magic for them at all. Even if they beg! That creates Mystery and that is the kind of Magic that will keep you friends.

Hi Paul,
We met only briefly many years ago when Tabman was working with you and Johnathan on your show "Mayhem."

Have you worked with Johnathan since then? Or is this a "reunion show" of sorts?

Hey David, no this is not exactly a reunion, it is a project in the same vein as the Blue Collar Guys, The Kings of Comedy...together yet seperate, with some ensemble pieces in the future.

Paul.. Ray Witkowski may be the guy you know from Pittsburgh, he's been an illusionist in the area for a long time and tho is New Wilmington, PA, has been active in pgh magic for a long time adn recently took over Tabmans company upon his retirement.

However, you might also be thinking of Ray Wozniak, who used to work with Collectors Magic Studio in Greensburg, PA.

Either way... both great guys.

Paul... I used to attend different magic meetings in the Pittsburgh area. To busy to attend any more. Saw Tabby in August when we went down to finalize taking over the business. He looked good. I keep in touch with him when I have questions on any of the things we sell from his line.

Paul & Nick,

Ray passed away on Labor Day weekend after a couragous battle with Cancer. He was still active at Collectors until he couldn't travel any longer. There was a Broken Wand listing in the November Linking Ring.

Actually, I'm the youngest one, Greg. And sorry, no, I didn't get into magic. We just always enjoyed your Thanksgiving show ... so every year I search the net around this time just to see if I can find your schedule on the off chance that you might be coming back to the 'burgh. We always had a blast seeing the show the night before Thanksgiving.
