The Ballroom Dancing Magician-3News NZ‎
Cosentino is a magician who has come all the way from Australia to talk about his upcoming show Twisted Reality. He's bringing it to New Zealand in August and September but has come a little bit early to try and talk people into going. "It's the whole works: it's street magic, which is filmed on cameras and projected onto these huge screens; we do grand stage illusions, so appearing and disappearing; we do mentalism, which is the illusion of reading people's minds and death-defying escapes," he says...

Master magician Johnny Thompson talks about illustrious career-Digital Journal‎
Multi-award-winning magician Johnny Thompson chatted with Digital Journal about his latest projects and illustrious career. "I started out as a boy of eight, that saw a movie about a Mississippi River boat gambler, and that's what I wanted to be, and my mother took me to a used book store and got a book called 'The Expert at the Card Table,' which is the bible of card cheaters and also magical card experts. Most magicians who read it thought it was an academic at the time," he said. "I spent four years learning everything I could, only to come to the rude awakening that there weren't a lot of places where a 12-year-old spectator could work. I looked in the back of the book and it showed me how to take these gambling moves and apply them to magic, and that's how I got into magic."

Fox Sets 'Houdini & Doyle' for 2016 Debut with Stars Michael .-Variety‎
Fox is saying “abracadabra” to David Shore’s supernatural adventure series “Houdini & Doyle” with ten episodes set to debut next year on the network. Michael Weston (“House,” “Six Feet Under”) and Stephen Mangan (“Episodes”) have nabbed the two title roles in the period drama, inspired by true events. Stephen Hopkins (“24,” “Californication”) has signed on as director. Rounding out the cast, Rebecca Liddiard (“Man Seeking Woman”), has been set as Constable Adelaide Stratton, the first female constable ever to work for the London Metropolitan Police Force. The series revolves around master magician, escape artist and paranormal debunker, Harry Houdini (Weston) and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Mangan), the prolific writer, paranormal aficionado and creator of “Sherlock Holmes,” as they grudgingly join forces with New Scotland Yard to investigate inexplicable crimes with a supernatural slant...

10 Things I've Learned While Being a Professional Magician-Pulse‎
I think that no matter what vocation you pick, there are things to be learnt that you could never learn from any other job. When I was a social worker, for example, I learned that the best time to speak to people with memory problems is the morning, as their memory gets worse throughout the day. As a croupier, I learned that, by law, all roulette tables have to spin a zero at midnight, to reset the table for the next days gaming....

Magician, 93, still has tricks up his sleeve-The Riverdale Press
Each Friday, Jerry Oppenheimer ties his shoes, packs some tricks and takes a bus down from Riverdale to the Magic Table, a weekly gathering of the city’s magicians at a corner table in a quiet Midtown café. At the meeting, coins are palmed. Coffee cups levitate. Mr. Oppenheimer’s own specialty transforms one dollar bills into fives. The Midtown tradition goes back to World War II and has included some of the world’s most famous conjurers, including Tony Slydini, Doug Henning and David Copperfield -- many of whom Mr. Oppenheimer, 93, recalls meeting personally.

It would be a treat in itself just to have one of these seven skilled illusionists perform, much less a venue that showcases all of their talents in an awe-inspiring manner.
