Did he say he was a professional?

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaa.......

I can't take much more. lol

I've just watched the performance, now for the other clip...


Seven Years... erm... hmmm...

I've never seen a swing cut look so awkward, and talk about draw attention to your other hand... every time he's doing something with the deck he immediately drops his hand and positions his arm like a tea pot.
I don't think the spectators will accept being a tea pot as a good excuse.

It does say he's a comedian also... wonder if he really is, or if people just saw him perform magic and got the wrong idea.

Wonder if his comedy stuff is any better...

I can see it now... "A man walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a pack of crisps", "What flavour crisps" the bartender replied, "......Cabbage."

Maybe not.

Bad magic, badly performed by a bad performer, and badly taught by a bad teacher... the YouTube experience at its best.

I cringe when I see this.

This makes so much sense to me now. When I give a potential client a quote for a show, they usually come back with, “the other guy underbid you by half.” No wonder! It's morons like this that destroy the Art! Of course persons of his ilk underbid me, do you want quality entertainment, or this guy?!?

Does he even have the right to call himself a magician?

Coul you imagine if you hired a performer and he showed up... Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

Seven years is a long time, and to only be at that level after all that time is almost unreal.

I can’t believe this guy is a member of the Magic Castle! He even has his little member button on his lapel in the video. I hope, for his sake, I never see him there.

(Anybody notice the askew painting on the wall behind him?)

Yeah, but at least you can see the awesome professional sets...

Are you going to kick his *** for doing crappy magic? If that is the case then you are going to busy kicking butt for the rest of your life cause there is no shortage of bad magic out there. And why is the jack of diamonds so infamous?

practice practice perform.

Nope – I never resort to violence, but I would not hesitate to give him my opinion about his ethics, or lack there of. Not to mention his “crappy” performance skills.

I wonder if there are any by-laws being broken within the Academy of Magical Arts or S.A.M. for his exposure? Wait, I meant “crappy” exposure.

I'm embarrassed for the guy. I cannot believe he is a pro.

I do believe he is a comedian. He made me laugh for sure!

Wonderful things do happen
Magic is so relative, that we all think we know what it is

He's not a pro. The only one who has called him a pro...is HIM.
