Street Magicians, Make-A-Wish, Dan Sperry And More [Magic Bulletin]

Posted by Michael on September 3rd, 2015

We will kick off today’s late edition Magic Bulletin with Dan Sperry’s contribution to America’s Got Talent last night. As you may recall, Dan was a competitor on AGT season 5.

Fosters.com has more information about, and pictures from, Seth Jones’ magic show last Friday. Seth is the seven year old paired with Norman Ng by Make-A-Wish to put on a professional magic show.

Las Vegas continues to think about new restrictions on street performers but according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal the discussion has been tabled until September 16.

Finally, iTricks can think of several magician/lawyers and now we need to add Jerome Levy to the list, according to the Tampa Tribune who profiled the attorney turned magician.

America’s Got Talent Semi-Finals Recap

Posted by Michael on September 3rd, 2015

Not much in the way of suspense last night on America’s Got Talent for magic fans as the first two contestants sent to the finals were Derek Hughes and Oz Pearlman. What the show lacked in suspense it made up for in magic, though, with The Illusionists kicking off the show (with the above piece) and appearing throughout the broadcast. Jonathan Goodwin even attempted to teach Howie Mandell how to perform escapes.

Next week, Piff the Magic Dragon will make his bid to continue in the competition.

If you want to make your bid to qualify for America’s Got Talent, the Season 11 auditions start in November. Figure you where you will be trying out by checking the schedule on the Business Wire website. The AGT Live: All Star tour has also been announced (featuring Smoothini); you can check dates here.

iPod Magic – Deceptions from Marco Tempest on Vimeo.

We are leading off this morning with a new video from Marco Tempest. The app Marco uses to sync up the iPods in the video is available free from Marco (and it works with iPhones and can be triggered with an OS X device); details on his website.

We have already had two very early posts on America’s Got Talent today to encourage everyone to get their votes in for Derek Hughes and Oz Pearlman (if you are reading this before 7:00 AM Eastern, you can still vast up to 10 votes at the NBC website), but we have more AGT news. Dan Sperry, Adam Trent, Jonathan Goodwin, Raymond Crowe and James More from The Illusionists are scheduled to appear on tonight’s results program.

Congratulations to Vanishing Inc Magic’s Joshua Jay and his new wife Anna, who were married over the weekend.

Vegas News has a picture of AGT winning ventriloquist Terry Fator catching AGT winning magician Mat Franco’s new show at The Linq.

According to the Shore News Today, Chad Juros is going to appear on the next edition of Fool Us and they caught up to their local boy to find out how it went.

Oz Pearlman Mystifies AGT Judges

Posted by Michael on September 2nd, 2015

Oz Pearlman blew away the judges last night on America’s Got Talent with his ability to know what Howard Stern was drinking while wearing a Heidi Klum blindfold, leading Howard to proclaim this “the year of the magician” on AGT. We are posting Oz’s performance so early in the morning because voting for the AGT semi-finals ends at 7:00 AM Eastern! You can vote for Oz and Derek* (you are given ten votes to distribute among the acts) at NBC.com. Representing the “allied arts,” puppet act Ira also appeared on last night’s show.

*We brought you Derek earlier simply because his performance on the show was first.
