In January 2018, I’ll be giving a presentation at the East Coast Spirit Sessions, a convention devoted to bizarre magic. This will be the fourth incarnation of this annual event, and it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. If you’re a magician who is into the spookier side of magic, you should check out this convention: http://www.eastcoastspiritsessions.com/
I’ll be performing in Sunday Night Magic in Minneapolis on October 15! This will be my third appearance in the show and my first time sharing the stage with my dear friend and spirit guide Jim Cunningham of Phantom’s Feast! We’re cooking up a cauldron of spooky magic for the fall season, so don’t miss it!
On Tuesday, September 26, after being introduced by the magical duo Penn & Teller during their live stage show at the Rio in Las Vegas, I walked onstage to a packed theater of over a thousand people. With the assistance of a volunteer from the audience, I reprised the winning piece that I performed on the TV show Penn & Teller: Fool Us. The performance was projected onto a giant screen over the stage, so everyone got a close-up view of the magic. Afterward, the volunteer returned to her seat to much cheering and applause, then Penn & Teller presented the coveted Fool Us trophy to me. Here’s a view from backstage, showing me being introduced by Penn & Teller at the Rio:
And here’s a photo of us and the trophy, after the show. (Fun Facts to Know & Tell: the photo was taken by Paul Gertner, who fooled Penn & Teller on a previous episode of Fool Us, and it shows the backstage area known as the Monkey Room because of its simian-themed décor.)
