You mean to tell me the fish are "stooges"? Smile I think Cyril is just really good at palming water.


That's right Rick. The fish aren't just NORMAL stooges, they are VERY CONVINCING stooges. They have a facial expression that doesn't change upon seeing the magician, they look so innocent. You can't beat that.

Although, they DO smell a bit fishy, which just contradicts the whole thing.

And yes, I too commend Cyril's water palming skills. He palms water very well. Aquarium water more so!

Truly incredible, like so much of his magic. This alomg with his food from menu, and card thru window, is some of the most baffling magic I've seen in a long time.

Cyril is a bad *** in every sense! I agree that a live special in the US of Cyril's work would definitely raise the bar here!

I can't believe it, but there is another Asian magician doing the same fish tank trick. I don't know if he is Japanese or Korean. Has anyone here seen that clip? And do you know who he is?

I think H E R E is something similiar to what we've already seen. The name is Hiro Sakai and he is also a well known Japanese top class magician.

He is good, but what is with that mop of hair. Donald Trump would be jealous of this guy.

I thought Cyril's version was a little more dramatic.

ps) This guy probably needs the hair mop in case there's some leakage from the tank.

I preferred Cyril, his persona comes across as being more likeable. Also his fishtank, while identical to the others, was in an aquarium, giving the trick a nicer, more impromptu feel. This other guy, just did the effect. Although I did think the fish release was a lovely idea, and had I not seen Cyril's I would of undoubtledly raved about his version, but its just not as good in my opinion.

SAkai is not the one... (the one I saw was a different guy and did the card thru the fish tank almost the same routine as Cyril)... gads now there are three guys doing this type of effect.

Unfortunately I don't trust any of the TV magic anymore, entire "live audiences" may be actually paid employees. Don't get me wrong, he did an excellent job and it was entertaining, which is all he is expected to do. I'm just tainted enough not to "trust" TV magic!

I agree but it was very impressive looking. I cant fathom how it is done, I am blown away with that one.

That looked incredible! Could it have used an entirely stooged audience? Yes. Is it likely that this is how it was accomplished? Possibly. Do I care? Not in the least. From where I'm sitting, that looked beautiful and therefore it was. Got to love Cyril. I do hope he comes to the US in the future. It would be a great thing for "street magic" on TV.

I pretty much figured out he got the card in the tank.
But the pulling out, I'm not sure yet.

I think getting it out was easier.... Let's just say it's an expensive tank in the mode of anything through glass/mirror
