I've been looking for some Irv Weiner video. A while ago there was a video on YouTube of him
performing at a relative's birthday party, but it has since been removed. Are there any others?

Wow me too! I owned "Soft Dice" many years ago and I read somewhere that Irv was a wonderful raconteur who had been to many fascinating places all over the world and had many stories to tell. He was a person you'd like to hang around with for hours even if he never performed a single magic trick. Those are the kind of magicians I like!

I got to see him twice. Once a show and a lecture... Fantastic, gentle entertainer with some great magic. I was hoping that the
video of him performing at his aunt's b-day party would surface. I remember the first name as Frances on the video.

Old topic, but I'm bumping it up because I just found this rare video of Irv Weiner performing and wanted to share it.

The video tape (from the late 1970's) is somewhat degraded at the beginning , but still watchable. This gives us a glimpse of what a great performer this man was .

Enjoy --

Wonderful! Thanks for posting. I met Mr. Fingers in a magic shop and saw his college show. I was happy to see his Miracle Princess Card Trick included in The Impostress Princess Expanded.
I hope the birthday party video surfaces.

He put out a lot of fantastic ideas. Many years ago I used to do his signed coin into nested boxes. It used the traditional circular small plastic boxes... but the boxes were on display the whole time yet the coin appears in the last and smallest of the boxes. He was a genius idea.
