Ending The Day With Jason Michaels

Posted by Michael on November 21st, 2017

We are already creeping towards the holidays here at iTricks Tower Midwest… meaning that we are so excited about the four day weekend and are kind of already over the whole work thing this week! We figure that a whole bunch of you iTricksters feel the same way so kick back, ignore work and watch this long segment (just a little over ten minutes) from Jason Michaels at the Allen Arena in Nashville.

This was posted a couple of days ago and we initially missed it, but it is a clip from Minneapolis-St. Paul’s WCCO featuring favorite son Dan Sperry coming home to open the Waconia Performing Arts Center. We imagine he’ll probably hang out for the holidays, too.

Magical Books, Piff, Leon Etienne And More [Magic Bulletin]

Posted by Michael on November 21st, 2017

I think we’ve mentioned Malcolm Mitchell’s The Magician’s Hat before… it is a kids book written by the childhood reading advocate and NFL wide receiver. It isn’t directly “magic,” but he is definitely doing good work and it may be just the trick for some of your holiday kids’ shows or as a stocking stuffer.

Piff the Magic Dragon is bringing back his holiday Piffmas at Piffany’s show December 4th at the Flamingo in Vegas. More details over on Vegas News.

AGT alum Leon Etienne is currently in Saipan, starring in the show Magic Rocks! at the Sandcastle Theater but later this month, according to the Saipan Tribune, he will be instructing a free kids’ magic camp.

In a similar vein, the Manawatu Standard profiles Caleb “Kid Dynamo” Wilson, who teaches magic classes once a week at his local library. By the way, the New Zealand magician is only 12!

TNT Magazine chats with Kevin Quantum, who began his career as a magician after appearing on the TV program Faking It.
