Meet Richard Turner: magician, expert card shark, and blind-89.3 KPCC‎
But losing his sight didn’t slow down Richard Turner at all. He started practicing with cards obsessively in his teens -- often for 10 to 20 hours in a single day -- and never stopped. “Obsessed is an understatement,” says Turner. “When I’m in a car, my card table’s on my lap. When I’m walking around, I always have cards in my hand. So I was able to practice in just about every scene and situation that you could imagine, because cards are small.”..

Britain's Got Talent magician Chloe on Playboy days: I'm not sure-Mirror
As the scantily-dressed magician who made a motorbike disappear on Britain’s Got Talent, Chloe Louise Crawford certainly knows how to make a good first impression... just ask the audience at her topless Vegas show or the readers of Playboy. But as she prepares to bewitch viewers with her magic act in tonight’s semi-final, she fears there’s one person who might not fall so easily under her spell... The Queen. Chloe, 27, is happy to tell fans the naked truth about her day jobs as a Vegas showgirl and Playboy bunny – but she’s not sure how it will go down if she wins the chance to perform at The Royal Variety Show...

Britain's Got Talent magician Jamie Raven apologises for mistake in -Mirror
Britain's Got Talent magician Jamie Raven has apologised for an embarrassing mistake in last night's semi-final - but it's not what you think. Ever the master of illusion and distraction, the talent show hopeful grabbed the headlines with his trick, and none of us noticed his gaffe involving Alesha Dixon. Jamie called the judge - who we're pretty sure is a female singer - "sir" during the live show, and now he's said sorry for the mistake.

Billy Kidd: She's the magician, not the lovely assistant-The Globe and Mail‎
The name is Billy Kidd, only she’s not a kid or even an outlaw. She’s one of the very few women who perform magic tricks instead of acting as the male magician’s lovely assistant. Born in Edmonton, now based outside of London, Ms. Kidd is so good at her craft she has been featured on the Discovery and Syfy channels, and entertains throughout Europe, Asia and Japan. She found her inspiration several years ago watching a street magician in Edmonton.

Britain's Got Talent 2015: Magician Jamie Raven: 'Sadly, I'm Not-Yahoo Celebrity UK
And Wednesday night's episode of the show was no exception, as the nation watched with their jaws dropped to the floor whilst magician Jamie Raven conjured up a helicopter seemingly out of thin air. AN ACTUAL HELICOPTER. However, things took a turn for the awkward when Simon Cowell requested that the audience member who wrote down 'helicopter' as the random item to be conjured up came forward and nobody appeared to take the glory, but that didn't stop Jamie from securing a spot in tonight's live final...

Review: Magician Howard Blackwell swallows needles-Charleston Post Courier
“It is strange how magic can pull you in so deep that you forget the world around you,” said Howard Blackwell as he shred a long thread into several pieces. “But it would be real magic if life were like this.” Then the conjuror rolled the pieces together to unravel the original thread, not broken anymore...

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell recap: episode three-The Guardian
The Education of a Magician feels like a bit of a turning point in Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. Increasingly, the whimsy is set aside, the darkness gathering. It is perhaps less an education than a baptism of fire once Strange pitches up in Lisbon, fresh off the boat with his magic bowl strapped to his back and that poor sod Jeremy, Strange’s manservant, humping 40 leather-bound tomes about like a knackered pit pony. An impressive amount of action and plot was stuffed in this week, and without it feeling too rushed, I thought. Quite an achievement in the grand scheme.
