I was a bit concerned about anyone back stage when he shot those bullets through the mirrors and curtains.

That was the worlds most unenthusiastic magician. Did he do anything ?
Some really great props. But he was just meh.

I agree, some great looking props, but he was just going though the motions.
Thanks for sharing, Bob.

I think it may be the "style" I saw Kio Jr. with the Moscow circus in Helsinki back in the 80's. Big props but he seemed to really be walking though it in a similar manner.

Agree that he looked uninterested, but I gotta say the illusions were quite sleek-looking. I thought the "Stepping through a Girl" illusion was very clever. Is that original to this guy, or has someone else done it before?

If I am not mistaken I believe it is an Andre Kole illusion. (Someone correct me if I am wrong.)

I have seen a LOT of illusions in foreign shows on YouTube that are probably not LEGIT. However, I will say that they often do some twist on the illusion that are very original and an improvement on the original. If you look around youtube there are plenty of train-wrecks of shows, but there is some real genius there as well that folks in the US and Europe should look at.

Meh...
Your showing your age Smile

Seriously, There are lots if different cultural, political, personal and health reasons why people are meh.
But I agree, a Front Man should have a twinkle in his eye and a little enthusiasm instead of going over his grocery list while doing the impossible.

That one illusion was too similar, if not a direct copy, of Andre Kole's trick. I'm talking about the horizontal box with the girl inside and the magician stepping into that same box and walking through it.

Wow, Blair, thanks for knowing your illusion history and for sharing the Andre Kole version. The Russian illusion is obviously a copy of the Kole prop. I'm sure the Russian guy paid for the performance rights, though, right? Yeah, right...

The "deadpan" attitude may be a popular approach in eastern Europe? Voronin's stage personality is a bit like that (lot of Johnny Thompson in there too).

I was an associate of Andre's for 9 years and helped with the building of the illusion that you see in the video that Blair linked to. I was also a stage assistant on it's first tour. No rights were given to this Russian illusionist that I was ever made aware of.

I dunno...A lot of his assistants seemed fairly enthusiastic and expressive.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
