One of my favorite magicians of all time is 17 year old Kyle Eschen. Everyone who watches this kid perform always leaves the showroom with a slight question but more enjoyment then most. His odd behavior makes him stand out and become more noticeable then the rest. Watch this video of him performing a great classic of magic and you will be come a fan too i am sure. Enjoy!
He had a comedic ability the audience loved topped with a heart of gold... Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, on October 1, 1926, his interest in the prestidigitating arts was sparked at the age of seven, when he saw a performance by the Great Dante. Ron first performed professionally in a talent show at the Fawcett's Hotel in Portrush, Northern Ireland for a traveling holiday group. Throughout his teens, he performed kids' shows with props he manufactured by hand. Ron was asked to join the Board of Directors of the Academy of Magical Arts at the Magic Castle in 1969, and served on that board, as well as later on the Board of Trustees, for 41 consecutive years. His creativity and invention are on display in a book written and published by Richard Kaufman in 1987 entitled The Uncanny Scot, a sobriquet issued him by Magic Castle host Guy Thompson. Beloved by his fellow magicians and by the audiences he entertained, Ron recently collected his favorite stories about his friends at the Magic Castle in a book published by Steve Mitchell as Tales from the Uncanny Scot earlier this year. Ron Wilson is and always will be known as a true hero for the art of magic. He will be missed by many & loved by all. Ron Wilson (October 1, 1926 - December 17, 2010)

Love is a connection shared between two people. Sometimes love can become the most surprising feeling we can ever have. Famous Ramos here proves just that when he uses his own romantic style on a classic cup and ball routine to create a magical moment between a couple in love.
The world of Sideshow entertainment and Magic have gone hand in hand for many years. Two amazing art's one with the element of danger the other with a touch of elegance. In this video Crow Garrett brings both sides together for your enjoyment.
A good classic of magic one of Holland's greatest magicians Richard Ross performs his magical Pocket Watch Routine. These little watches do so many amazing things to surprise the audience they even surprise Richard him self. Good luck keeping track how many watches are used....
It's commonly thought that Houdini said: "I consider no man a magician until he can adequately perform the Cups and Balls." There's a lot of truth to that statement. No matter how flashy or entertaining you are as a performer, to master the cups and balls requires an understanding of how magic really works. You have to know the moves, the timing, the flow and of course, the proper presentation. I think we can say that Harry would certainly consider Rene Lavand a magician. Rene Lavand is a modern master because of his re-invention of the art in order to compensate for his disability and the beautiful simplicity of his routines. The open and smooth movements, the unhurried nonchalance in which he presents miracles adds exponentially to the wonder. When he violates one of magic's central tenets: "Thou shalt not repeat a trick." it only heightens the mystery and astonishment. Rene Lavand is a graceful master of timing, slight-of-hand and artful presentation.
Okay, we all love the new guys. I've got no beef with them. But until you know where we've been, you can't really appreciate where we're going. In that spirit, here's Roy Benson, one of the shining stars of magic. Is this TV spot corny compared to today's high-energy, bloody and spooky TV magic? Maybe, I don't think so, but it's up to you to decide for yourself. What you can't deny that he's an entertaining and masterful performer. We watch Roy Benson because he's an engaging, charming guy who just happens to do magic. Who you are on stage matters much more than what you do. Character is everything.
