Meir Yedid and Monsignor Dermot BrennanMeir Yedid and Monsignor Dermot Brennan. While lecturing for SAM #194 on May 19th in Yonkers, New York I was pleasantly surprised when my old friend Msgr. Brennan attended the lecture. Few people know that in the 1970s and 1980s Msgr. Brennan wrote many of the instructions and ads for Tannen's Magic. You can also find some convention reviews he wrote in magic magazines. As a special surprise the club also provided him with a birthday cake to celebrate his upcoming 80th birthday.

MIKE WEATHERFORD: Magician Wyrick by the numbers - Las Vegas Review Journal

Pricey, but not to be wholly reliant on Wyrick, or even fellow entertainers renting the stage in the afternoons....
