Tom Mullica doing his cigarette act. I saw this last year, live. The guy was a genius.

Shadows. No question. Beautiful magical narrative, sweet, succinct, slightly dark and super powerful.

Paul Daniel's chop cup. Definitely!

That and that guy who did the cups and balls routine with clear glass cups. Wow!

Do you mean Penn & Teller with the clear cups? Or has that been done by someone else as well?

No, it was a young guy. I don't recall his name. I think he performed for one of the late night shows.

I found it. It was Jason Latimer.

Thank you for that. As for the topic of the thread, I have to go with Teller's Red Ball. I think it's a beautiful routine, and touches on pretty much everything I like about magic.

The first time I ever witnessed Card Warp. It boggles my mind that the occasional spectator doesn't grasp what the effect is.

I know I'm not alone on that.
There is a road - no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night. And if you go, no one may follow; that path is for your steps alone.

Tommy Wonder's cups and balls. He was lecturing in NY at the Waldorf. I missed the loads every time even though he was teaching how to do it. His timing and "direction" was impeccable!

Paul Gertner's "That's Incredible". A beautiful multiplying coin matrix routine with a double kicker ending.

and

I saw Doug Henning live cut a rope that stretched across the stage, then he tied it, took it in his hand, ran across the stage, sliding the knot on the rope and then untied it.

Amazing!


Yes! "THE" rope trick was delightful! Like Harry's Light Bulb, even when one knows the "what", the "how" makes it an absolute masterpiece! PRESENTATION! As my mentors said, so many years ago, "It aint WHAT ya do, it's HOW ya do it!"

Yeah Todd! I managed the late Tim Deremer's "Ape Show" for most of a season, back in '85. Tim had framed it "right". The tip would run, screaming, at the blow off! --See ya down the road....

Denis Behr and his friend Herbert the rubber band making card locations come to life. You actually begin to believe that Herbert is real. So strong

A close-up headline prediction using hot read information got me into researching mentalism techniques. Though I knew the performer (a friend) was an amateur magician, I could not put the two together till months later. The presentation he ran with also added to the profound impact it had on me. I've been chasing that effect ever since.
