When IBM International President Shawn Farquhar was on the iTricks Magic Week in Review podcast a while back with SAM President ICE McDonald, there was talk of a cool they attended in Canada where magicians just gathered for the sake of magic. Yesterday in an email sent to International Brotherhood of Magician members, the group announced a series of such events across the United States. IBM Jams (Just About Magic) events will be one day, free gatherings for registered IBM members with performers donating their time to participate in the event. Attendees must register in advance online and have their IBM card (so I will be digging through my office this weekend). Farquhar told iTricks “Any IBM Rings anywhere in the world can offer to host an IBM JAM. We can only accommodate so many, but if the interest is high, we will do our best to produce more.”
So far IBM Jams have been announced for Atlanta and Los Angeles (both in April) as well as one in St. Louis (details to be revealed soon; your humble reporter will be attending this one). To learn more about these events and the IBM, visit the official website at IBMJAM.com.
Today’s lead video is the Amazing Randi telling us why birthday boy Penn is bad from the efforts to fund the film Director’s Cut. James Randi will be streaming live on Huffington Post later today and yesterday they posted some of the best magician appearances on the site. You can check that out here and Randi live here.
Justin Willman will be starring in his own Comedy Central special, Sleight of Mouth, on April 6, according to Variety. The team behind the special includes Nerdist king Chris Hardwick and former Late Night producer Robert Morton.
The Mirror caught up with Apollo Robbins who filled them in on making Will Smith turn to shoplifting and stealing from the Secret Service. The piece is, of course, publicity for the new film Focus, but it is better than 98% of all the junket interviews typically promoting Hollywood movies!
The next Potter and Potter auction is April 4th and will feature the collection of Richard Bloch. Learn more and order or download a catalog on their website.
Kam Tesla has been attracting our attention lately, mainly with his announced plans to vanish the Eiffel Tower. He has posted this new video to raise awareness of his Million Magician March scheduled for September of next year (say what you will about the project, at least it is not a knee jerk reaction). If you are interested in learning more about the goals of the Million Magician March, which include free advertising for magicians on radio and television, visit the group’s Indiegogo project.
You may recall that Greg Wilson was performing last year before every screening of Maleficent at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre. He recently posted a video of his cannon illusion taken from one of these pre-movie performances. Greg also performed at the theater before screenings of Oz The Great And Powerful in 2013. No word yet if he will be appearing before the live action Cinderella feature.
The Las Vegas Sun’s Robin Leach is reporting that Mac King has started delivering books to local schools as part of Nevada Reading Week in his latest column. There is some other magic news in it as well and you can read it on the Sun’s website.
Mr. Leach also reported earlier this week that The Amazing Johnathan is entertaining the staff during an extended hospital stay. His reduced circulation has forced major surgery on his feet, but wife Anastasia Synn told Leach that his heart is actually improving.
UPDATE: Magician Simon Pierro, fresh off his appearance on the Ellen Degeneres Show, is schedule to appear on NBC’s Today Show tomorrow morning.
