Youtube is a vast and expansive place with anyone with a smartphone being able to make youtube content. This can mean that quality can range on a spectrum from the bad, good and the great depending on who you choose to watch.

It is this reason that many magicians on the café and elsewhere give trepidation about recommending Youtube as a quality source of instruction and information.

Regardless of these sentiments, I feel a vast majority of people will take to Youtube regardless, so giving some direction to the better content out there might be a prudent endeavour.

It is for this reason that I thought a thread compiling quality magic Youtube channels would be beneficial to many newcomers to the magic fraternity.

So without further of ado here are some channels I recommend to new magicians. I hope to add more as I come across others in the future.





52Kards is a leading educational platform and supplier of products for students of magic. Their channel features hundreds of high quality tutorials, deck reviews, performances and other great videos. Visit their website to purchase premium training courses, designer playing cards, and other magic tricks.

https://www.youtube.com/user/DecksAndContests



Came across Spideys channel recently and found it to be an eclectic array of content ranging from Magic, Mentalist and Hypnosis tutorials and performances, Vlogs, contests and puzzles you can trying to solve etc. Spidey offers a real mixed bag with his content offering everyone in any field something to offer. Well worth checking out.

https://www.youtube.com/user/SpideyHypnosis



Chris Ramsey is an accomplished card magician and his channel you'll find Magic, Puzzles, Vlogs and a combination of all three mixed with odd competition, tutorial review etc. Sort of the same mix as Spideys channel without the heavy focus on mentalism and hypnosis. Great all around channel.

https://www.youtube.com/user/MrTricksforfun/featured




If you like to learn tricks with Cards, Coins, and of the ESP variety then the channel Totally Magic is for you. Heaps of tutorials of various varieties to learn your next trick from. Oh, he also does the odd review every now and then. So go check him out.

https://www.youtube.com/user/totallymagic/featured




If you don't know who Murphys Magic is then you've probably been living under a rock. Not only are they one of the premier wholesale suppliers to magic shops around the world, they also just so happen to have their own Youtube channel. Not only is their channel a litany of trailers of the latest up and coming magic products, they also do a series of interviews with notable magic personality's within the community. If that's not enough, they also do free trick Fridays where you can learn a magic trick. Well worth your time checking out for the latest and greatest, interviews and the odd magic tutorial.

https://www.youtube.com/user/murphysmagic/featured



Shin Lim doesn't need any introduction. As one of the premiere talents of magic today his channel is abuzz with some pretty amazing visual magic, video streams with other famous magicians, live performance videos, trick tutorials and vlogs.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIE5yGe5n0JOvufxEiv08Gg



Jay Sankey is one of a long list of prolific creators of magic tricks and products which he sells through magic shops and through his own online store. His channel however is loaded with trick tutorials based on many of his own creations and combining existing ideas into great magic. Well worth look into for any newcomer to magic.

https://www.youtube.com/user/SankeyMagic



Rich Ferguson's mantra of Magic, Pranks and Comedy pretty much sums up his channel. Check out is magic pranks he unleash on the general public and get a good laugh. Even learn a magic trick or two along the way. Great channel.

https://www.youtube.com/user/ucmagic




Let me introduce you to the TheRussianGenius. Whether or not he is a genius I'll let you decide, regardless he seems to make good magic tutorials worth checking out.

https://www.youtube.com/user/TheRussianGenius

Anyway guys and girls, that should be enough for my first installment, stay tuned for more additions latter. If you have a youtube channel worth mentioning please tell us about it in a reply below.

until then...

Hi Aus,


I'm definitely with you on Asad's 52kards; I'm not as familiar with the other people you mention. One of my favorite channels is A Million Card Tricks. Nathan is personable, and his explanations are clear, confident, and relaxed, and I enjoy the tricks he chooses. It's been fun to follow him and watch him grow from an adolescent to a young man. I like his work from both the "younger" and the "older" periods.


Another channel I like -- though I don't think it's active anymore -- is Complete Deception. You can still find Tom's videos on the web.


Both Nathan and Tom are genuinely interested in teaching, not exposure for its own sake.


If you decide to look into the channels, you'll be far better able to tell than I can whether these teachers have a sufficient knowledge of their subject.

Daniel Madison's channel is a good place to learn, he has released material from his downloads like the Broken Bridge False Shuffle. I also like the channels of Alex Pandrea and Xavior Spade, they are a great source to start. My favorite for beginners is Disturb Reality, why? Cause he has a couple of videos on the problems you can have when performing and sometimes you can't even find those tips on the downloads, DVD''s or books you pay for. In simple words, real world advices that will improve the performance of any guy that has just started.

Other great channels to learn:
- I have to second 52 kards, great channel.
- Art Zone (really good stuff here)
- Ekaterina
- Pigcake
- Wade -, it's in chinese but you can understand what's going on with subtitles.
- Rise Magic
- Russian Genius
- Rick Holcombe

Some great suggestions here. There's a lot of magical dirt on youtube, but there is gold to be found for diligent prospectors, and this list gives some good places to start.

Thanks for compiling these, and for the introductory synopsis of each. I'd not come across Rich Ferguson's channel before, and look forward to checking that out.

Ok folks here are some more Youtube channels worth checking out.




Formally known as Scam School this channel specializes in bar bets, magic, puzzles and even have the odd guest magician. Worth a look.

https://www.youtube.com/user/scamschool




JS Magic is a guy who videos his live performances in walk around street magic and table Hopping gigs. Good channel for beginners to get a perspective on what a competent and dynamic real world performance looks like in those arenas. I managed to find some good ambitious card handling ideas from this channel.

https://www.youtube.com/user/ItsAllAnIllusionXx





Ekaterina is a very skilled magician and exponent of cardistry, she has released her own brand of playing cards called "Fox" and a magic trick called "Layers". Other content on her channel consists of product reviews, cardistry tutorials, giveaways and vlogs.

https://www.youtube.com/user/BaByCatXD/featured




Miss Katalin is a talented and accomplished female magician that vlogs her magical journey of exploration with videos of introspective reflection, performance videos and behind the curtain expose of her public engagements.

https://www.youtube.com/user/firstladyofmagic



Daniel Fernandez lives the playboy life style with many of his videos featuring performances with beautiful women but also catalogues his gradual rise in the glitz and glamour of tinseltown with appearances on the Ellen Degeneres show to the Oscars after party. A little bit of introspective philosophy is sprinkled in for good measure with the dictum "Dream Big, Do Bigger" being the moral dictate he prominently subscribes to.

https://www.youtube.com/user/ChangeInTheMaking




Daniel Madison is an accomplished card magician who does magic tutorials. You can learn some great stuff here. I do find his videos somewhat long winded due to his tendency to double-talk a bit, but if you can stick it out you can learn some great magic from here.

You probably should fix the embedded video clips that aren't working in your post. Be quick though - The Magic Café only gives you around 30 minutes to edit a post.

Broken are:
- Ekaterina
- Daniel Fernandez

I tried but after your reply it stopped me. Was having issues with Ekaterina and Daniel Fernandez links. I'm locked out.

Send a private message to Dave Scribner, who is one of the admins, and generally very helpful with these kinds of things.

If you explain what links you should have used for the embedded posts, he should be able to edit and fix it for you.

Found this guys channel well searching the web for misdirection approach's for pickpocket content.


His a professional magician and world record-holding card thrower, he has performed at over 600 corporate and social events per year all around the country. His clients have ranged from celebrating a birthday to companies holding an event to commemorate a merger, and my shows are tailored to fit the needs of each specific host and the themes of each party.

In addition to providing comedy, doing magic, and performing card throwing stunts for his audiences, has also been on national television several times alongside the likes of Ellen Degeneres, Jay Leno, and each of the investors on Shark Tank. He also appeared in a video on the YouTube channel Dude Perfect where I featured in one of their “trick shots” videos.

He seems good at what he does and thought I would mention him here.

Seems good at what he does? When it comes to card throwing, Rick Smith Jnr is the very best there is!

He just did a lengthy interview which you'll find here, which includes some good insights and tips about card throwing as well as about magic.

Dude Perfect just brought him back for a second Trick Shots video, which was just released last month:

Hi Folks.

If you considering your next magic Purchase then you may like to do some research into it, so I thought I would provide some great Product Review Channels that could help you in that decision. As an aside, may I suggest newcomers take the time to read through my Buying Magic (A How-To Guide) which is a sticky at the top of New To Magic section for additional thoughts and considerations.





Real Magic Review is by Steve Faulkner. There isn't really much to say here as his channel is your standard review channel with the odd interview with notable magicians and magic advice, but I would suggest newcomers take the time to watch his video on his reflections and advice on magic books called "How to choose a Magic book" which I think should be of value to most members new to magic.


https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCoAjIZcxnkXcbyHmEmL7sw





Craig Petty the former co-host of the Wizard Product review has struck out on his own for some time now with his own channel "Slightly Unusual Magic TV". On Mondays at 9pm he posts Marketing For Magicians. Business tips to grow your magic business. On Wednesdays at 5pm he posts his Magic Review Show staring Craig Petty and Ryland Petty. Thursdays at 9pm he posts Magic Stuff. This is where Craig talks about a different subject happening within the magic community every week, and finally Friday at 9pm Craig posts Magic Rants where Craig talks about something in magic that really annoys him.


https://www.youtube.com/user/SleightlyUNUSUAL





Magicorthodoxy in a magic review channel run by David who looks into latest and greatest releases in magic. Highly recommend his channel.


https://www.youtube.com/user/magicorthodoxy





Propdog is a magic shop based in the UK who manufactures many items exclusively under the Propdog brand as well as functions as a standard magic shop selling commercially available magic products to the magic community. The channel is operated by the owner and his staff and produce a show in a style of the Wizard Product Review show casing the latest products and their personal thoughts and feelings on them. In addition to this, they show DIY hacks to improve and modify commercial magic products as well as handling tips for common and not so common magic items. Well worth the time having a look around.


https://www.youtube.com/user/PropDogMagic





Much in the same vain as Propdog, Alakazam Magic is a UK Magic Shop that shares the same characteristics in terms of business and youtube content. One exception however which is rather novel and counterintuitive to the modern trend to look to the latest and greatest in magic is his "Hidden Treasures" segment that looks back to magic products of the past that have since been forgotten to the passages of time.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOoPq5g-LfNGEiVoIcDblUg






Tyler Lunsford Magic is another channel worth a look for product reviews.


https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWKXAA0TCIHYdXt5by-gBFQ


Anyway, I hope you get some insightful information form these channels for your next magic purchase.


Until then...

Just came across a great channel on magic history for those interested in such things. The Documentary on Dai Vernon is rather interesting.
