Are there any films/videos in existence of Corinda performing? Are there even any account of others having seen his act?
He claims in 13 Steps to have earned a good living from mentalism, but I haven't found any evidence that he ever actually performed before a real audience (i.e. not magicians).

Someone tell me that he wasn't a good performer, just a great teacher.

This topic seems to appear every few months..

Corinda did tons of performing, theres information about it somewhere..

Someone more historically sound than me will show it.. or just do a search on the forum for this same topic.

Apparently, the famed psychic reverend Mark Lewis knew him around that time, and Tony ran a small shop in london, and occasionally dropped into Hamleys where mr. lewis used to work...

according to him, tony was just as v_alfano said, he didn't perform much, but put it all together and taught it fantastically well...

I think its that he wasn't a bad performer, just prefered to write the stuff, rather than performing it all..

Since you all read the Fogel book....you DID read the Fogel book, right? Back to it, you would have read about Corinda and his association with Fogel and what he did.

Well dang, now you went and ruined the book! The Fogel book is outstanding sport fans.

I'm sure there's some stuff about Corinda in The Mind and Magic of David Berglas, there's certainly a picture of him with Punx and Berglas enjoying a joke, but I'm several glasses of red to the good...

I'm posting this on behalf of the reverend mark lewis, who says, I got things a little skewed, he did say not to mention his name, as he is the modicum of dignity and shyness, but I have now...anyway, he says:

"I see that my name is mentioned in connection with Corinda. I had better clarify things a little better. I not only knew Corinda (who incidentally is still alive and I believe reads the magic Café) but actually worked for him at one point.

I actually feuded with him too at one point but that was after I worked for him.

He was not a professional mentalist although he knew a lot about it. He was more of a businessman than an entertainer. However he could certainly entertain when he put his mind to it. I saw him do a masterful performance of the centre tear exactly how he described it in his book.

He owned the magic department in Hamleys where I worked with Ali Bongo. One day he came in drunk (he was a big drinker) to the shop and went behind the counter and started to demonstrate some of the slum items that were sold there including the little plastic cups and balls. He was superb. "
