Magician has tricks to help stop bullying - Stratford Press
Elgregoe, also known as Greg Britt, along with his show assistant and wife Sue, use an abundance of magic tricks and illusions to emphasise their anti-bullying message. The Elgregoe concept began 16 years ago when a school principal said, if you are a real magician then let's see if you can make bullying disappear. TrustPower partnered with Elgregoe in 2005 after seeing him in action one day at a school sharing his anti-bullying messages. They now support Elgregoe so even more Kiwi kids are exposed to his anti-bullying messages....

Guys, I Don't Know If You Know This, But Isla Fisher Is A Magician - Crushable
Isla Fisher chooses to do a card trick, and she begins with the disclaimer that if the trick doesn’t work, we should all go see the movie anyway. This is a high-stakes talk show circuit, it seems. That’s what you get when you make a movie about magic. I wonder if it was in these actors’ contract that they had to successfully perform a magic trick on national television with Tyler Perry present before they got paid...

Magic Gets Shooty With Bullet Catch Londonist
Bullet Catch is more than just a stunt. The backbone of the show is the story of William Henderson, a 19th-century magician who died while performing the infamous trick of catching a fired bullet with one’s teeth.

Now you see it: magical films to conjure up a good time -
It's no wonder, upon reflection, that some of the greatest film artists were, at least in their childhood years, aspiring magicians: George Méliès, Orson Welles, Woody Allen. The parallels between the mounting of illusions via the techniques of prestidigitation and the art of cinema are quite obvious; it wouldn't be surprising to learn, in fact, that there are more one-time conjurers in the Directors Guild of America than there are frustrated comedians or comic book artists, to name two other specialties that have fed the director's chair...

Damian is Tommy Cooper - just like that - for new show at Hull Truck - This is Hull and East Riding
Tommy Cooper was a master of comedy and chaotic magic tricks. Here, Damian Williams tells Will Ramsey about the pleasures of portraying his hero. There's a spooky thread running through Damian Williams's career. If there's such a thing as a go-to guy for dead comedians, then he's your man. "I'm like the Doris Stokes of the comedy world," the actor says with a grin.

Sleight of life: He's practised at the art of deception - Bangkok Post
Jesse Eisenberg is not the trickster type. When asked if he would use the skills he learned while researching his role as a magician in Now You See Me to pick up women in bars, Eisenberg demurs. "I feel very guilty doing magic because you're deceiving somebody," Eisenberg says. "When I am with David Kwong [the American illusionist who trained him] and he does magic, people love it and they don't want to know. I just feel immediately guilty that I tricked them and tell them how it's done and David gets upset and the night ends pretty early."...
