Anyone watch all of his stuff?
Sorry if it's in the wrong section, don't know if this should go here, Showbiz or the TV section.

'Magician to the stars'

A modern David Copperfield I think.

Did Jesus use cheap off the shelf tricks and stooges?


As Rimmer said: A simple carpenter's son who learns how to do magic tricks like that and doesn't go into show-business?

I am sure there is another thread on this site and everyone said it was actors and stooges.

Then again, surely if he was using so many actors and stooges then someone would have exposed him online by now?

With today's technology and tricks, there'll be a way that he's done it.

I imagine there's a confidentially clause in their contracts.

There's been a thread in the TV Shows forum. The general view seems to be that when he does try to use sleight of hand, he's rubbish at it.

He is a brilliant ,would love to know how he does the mind reading,
he would be burnt at the stake a few hundred years ago for witchcraft.

Ive watched his shows, and they are ok. I did notice on one though, that two rings that were meant to belong to two different people in different places looked identical to me. Stooges and actors would explain the majority of his tricks I would think.

So how about when he works with famous people? Do they sign a confidentiality clause as well?

Some of his stuff is very good, but it's so good that it comes across as "Act amazed and we'll edit the magic in later"

He is an excellent magician but that is what he is.

IIf you are in the know you can figure out how he does some of his tricks.

For instance:

Spoiler


Or:
Spoiler


I should add these are my informed speculation not sure knowledge as to how these tricks are done...but if you suspend belief and just watch they look amazing.

I love Dynamo for his skill and enjoy trying to work out how he has done the tricks.

He will be on a major TV channel soon as he is the best new magician I have seen in ages.

Why not? It might form part of their contract - one of the end credits is "celebrities booker". Did you think they were all personal friends he happened to bump iinto?

I think you are deluded if you think the whole thing is done by paying people as actors.

Easy, you dont see the whole trick. Here is how it works.

He tells them to write their best friends/mothers/fave place, fave food etc name clearly on a piece of paper. He retreats behind a corner while they write it down. When he returns he asks "did you write it in capital letters" Whatever they say the answer will be "you shouldnt have done, should have done "
He then takes their folded up piece of paper with the answer on and palms it. He then produces another piece of paper (blank) and rips it up in front of their eyes/burns it or eats it.
They think its the paper they wrote the answer on

He then gives them a third piece of paper and says "write it again" He then retreats again while they rewrite it. While away he simply reads the name. He then makes a big deal of reading their mind.
It really is that easy.

Don't be fooled. The people he does the tricks to are actors.

Threads about magicians inevitably attract idiots who say "omg ur all so gullible he just uses stooges for all his trix!!!". Some, but not all of his tricks involve stooges.

Anyway, he might be very impressive to a layperson, anyone who has seen street magic before will recognise almost all of the tricks he does. He's doing the same stuff David Blaine and Criss Angel do, and the same stuff you can see people doing on Youtube. Store-bought tricks, with very little innovation on his part.

It's real magic. He's like a real life Harry Potter. Some people have the "gift" - there are a lot of fake magicians like David Blaine and that, but he is actually a real magician.

(That's nonsense by the way, but if you replace "magician" with "psychic", suddenly the argument is given credence!)

Anyway, sorry, not meaning to hijack the thread - I'll get back to the Sally Morgan one

I have watched a few of his shows lately, some have absolutely got to involve stooges. Others involve an excellent sleight of hand.

There was another where he burnt a whole in someone's t-shirt then repaired it - I think I know how that was done.
