Magician to teach secrets at Fresno shop - Fresno Bee
Magician Tim Mannix has decided to reveal one of the biggest secrets of his profession. "It's not about the tricks, but the presentation," Mannix says. "You have to be a great entertainer first, a great magician second. A lot times when I teach, the students think that knowing the secret is magic. It's not. It's the presentation that makes it an art form." That's the lesson Mannix wants to get across in his Introductory Magic Class for students age 7 to adult. It will be taught at the center of Fresno's magic universe, Hocus Pocus, 1492 N. Clark St., a store that sells magic-related items to amateur and professional prestidigitators around the world. Mannix recently joined the local shop's staff after working for years in the Southern California area performing everywhere from corporate parties to the famed Magic Castle. He calls himself a comedian magician because of the humor he brings to his shows....

Magician makes fame disappear on purpose -
I am walking through Hollywood's Magic Castle with a legend, a man who's performed here 29 years and still gets four standing ovations a night. He doesn't do big magic. He does small magic; up-close. So close that you're almost on top of Johnny Ace Palmer when baby chicks pop out of cups two feet from your nose. Or when a bottle of Coke materializes in front of your eyes. Or when a live dove flies out of his hand and then -- before your jaw returns to place -- multiplies into two doves!..

Magician Murray building brand, including new residency at Tropicana - Las Vegas Review Journal
And now comes the opportunity Murray has waited for: star billing with a financial guarantee. When people would ask him why he didn't have his own show in Vegas, the answer would be more easily understood by those familiar with a pay-to-play marketplace: "I didn't want to lose my two houses." He is also trying to sell two reality shows of his own. "Designing Illusion" would create a major new illusion every half-hour, while "Dirt to Dreams" would offer backyard makeovers that tap into his offstage passion for landscaping....
