WOW. THat is awesome. Very cool that his youtube video led to this.

One quick note. Even though the coin effect was done beautifully it seems like the card trick got a better reaction.

This is fantastic. Moritz is hitting all the right notes. He absolutely gets it. Most in this craft spend their whole lives never understanding how to be an effective presenter, and this young man has it in spades at the age of 14.
He is very likable, real, funny (not in a contrived, scripted-sounding way), and his magic is strong. The effects he chose were simple (to understand and follow) and powerful.

Bravo!
It's all in the reflexes.

He has an eye for good tricks. He performed two tricks (the second and third) I've been performing with great success for 45 years.

It looked like they were keying off Ellen's responses and she looked a stunned at the first coin effect, not reacting verbally.

Yup Good Point. A lot of times my favorite reaction is when someone is dead silient with their jaw to the floor.

I've met a lot of teenage magicians, some extremely talented. The most exciting thing to me is that this kid seems to be extremely likable. Last weekend, I took my family to the Tevell Rose benefit shot in Chicago. My 18 year old niece saw a few young guys doing card tricks and wandered over....most of them scattered at the sight of a cute girl coming to watch a trick. Only one stayed. Even from only seeing him on video, I have a feeling Moritz would not be intimidated like that.

Also of note, look at how Ellen's team made him look great. Some really bad angles in Mo-Fly, especially since he was performing it side-view to the audience. They chose to not show any angle that exposed, unlike Letterman's people did to John Carney a few years ago.

Moritz did a shortened version of his coin routine... the full version is much stronger.

Great performance. He seemed so relaxed and calm. Very impressive indeed. Pepka, I too was at Tevell's show in Skokie. I'm glad to hear about the amount that was raised from the event.

I agree -

They should have let him run with the whole routine rather than Ellen asking "is there something else?"

Blame the typical show producers who probably insisted on a variety of effects.

I have known Moritz's dad, Thorsten Muller, for many years. The whole family visited with us in the summer of 2013 and we sessioned for a few hours at my home. He did some nice coin magic, nothing really extraordinary. I taught him a few things and we have communicated via internet a few times. He sent me the video of the performance of Mo-Fly and I was stunned. This kid must have locked himself in his room for a year to present this. His technique is incredible and so natural looking. He presents himself just as what he is...a very enthusiastic 14 year old with great aplomb, self confidence and a truly charming personality. The routine is now available and it is an extremely well thought out and perfectly executed routine. You are buying the knowledge of how to do it and, unfortunately, not the talent to do so. It is well within the capabilities of most readers here and I recommend it. Full disclosure, he gives me credit in the crawl, but that would not change my opinion one iota.

BTW, the Copper/Silver he performed on the Ellen Show was the one I taught him.

I didn't think his coin routine played well on Ellen.

I liked it a lot, especially knowing how hard Coin work is.

But his million dollar smile was a big winner with the audience and the viewers.

Enthusiasm is everything.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

The performance was amazing for someone that young and the pressure of the live audience. Kudos to his dad and mentors for coaching him up for that situation. Anyone know the coin transpo effect he did at the end?
