Nelson magician comes home -Nelson Star
Johnny Magick doesn’t like the word “trick”. “A trick is what a prostitute does for money,” said the local performer, who recently returned to the Kootenay after spending time performing and working in Las Vegas and Hollywood. “There are people who are tricksters, and then there are magicians. There are people out there, they may have a business card with a top hat and a bunny, but I wouldn’t say they’re magicians.” A real magician, according to Magick, is somebody who elicits an emotional response from the audience and stimulates them to think.
