For anyone who doesn't already know, Kind of Magic, in Kitchener/Waterloo, is having their third Battle of the Magicians.

It's only $5, and you get to see more magic in one night than Criss Angel can squeeze into an episode, wait, I'm sure you'll see more than ONE "real" magic trick, ok, so you'll see about as much magic as Criss Angel can squeeze "editing tricks" and "stooges" combined, into a single episode.

It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

I won't forget you Robert.

Hey Glenn

Thanks for the post and PM

Yes B.O.O.M. has really brought together a lot of local magicians both Beginner, Amateur and Pro, some of who have not performed in front of a live audience before, others are more experienced and just wanting to try out new routines.

Our youngest performer was 8 years old and our oldest over 70. It has really been a blast and the turnout has ensured good prize money for the winners.

We have had magicians, mentalist,contact juggler and a guy who ate a lightbulb and a lit candle on stage.

The July 19th Battle, should be a blast - Daryo the Masked Magician is coming back with a new routine ( and mask )!

For anyone in the area that is interested in participating or just coming out to watch, the past shows have been very entertaining and the audience has been very freindly, understanding and empathatic to the new performers.

I will definitely be back next time... I feel so horrible about my performance (one of the competitors before me performed my finale, so I had to scramble to find something new last minute).

Lots of fun, will definitely be coming to it on a regular basis!

You had a really tough spot, being last I don't envy you at all !!
- the other really bad spot is going first! We always want to make this is fair as possible so next time we will slot you in the middle.

You had some really tough acts to follow - and those acts were more comedy based than magic based, Jason and his escape, J.P. and his hitting on all the ladies in the crowd !

Michael all the comments I heard about your show were ALL positive - I heard comments like 'Solid' and 'Very Skilled' !

Hope to see you perform again.

Phil

Yeah... I'm in Ontario and I'm still 6 hours away.
Any day I'm walking on top of the grass instead of looking up at the roots is a good day!

I may be biased, but it was a hell of a show with some excellent talent. Some truly tough competition, but I gave it my all and had a wonderful time! Can't wait until the next one!

Careful, there are still a few members here who refuse to admit that Mr. Angel uses any editing or stooges of any kind. I am not one of them, but there are some who might be deeply offended by these comments.
