This is a long one but it is Video Friday… so why not watch a full set from the Magic Castle featuring Pop Haydn? Seems like the best way to use our afternoon, doesn’t it? Certainly better than work!

Have a great, and safe, weekend everyone!

The Blackpool Magician’s Convention line up has been announced.

Other performers include Pop Hadyn, Todd Robbins and Richard Turner. You can see more information over on the Broadway World website or on the Blackpool Convention site.

I can’t even read “Blackpool” without hearing Sheridan Smith from the Eighth Doctor audio plays in my head… am I the only one? Yeah… probably.

I still have the flu so I am taking the easy route for Video Friday and posting videos, old and new, featuring Blackpool performers.

Space Coast Daily recaps the Florida Magician of the Year competition where Todd Bogue won adult category, Autumn vanVorhis took top honors in the youth category and Megan Waryk won the junior category. You can see video of the three winners on the WESH NBC 2 website.

Anderson Reunites With Klok, Vegas Inferno And Cape Town Magic [Magic Bulletin]

Posted by Michael on January 18th, 2018

The big magic news in the regular media is Pamela Anderson’s return to the stage as Hans Klok’s assistant in Germany. She worked his Klok a few years ago in his Vegas show The Beauty of Magic. Today’s lead off video is highlight footage from Klok’s House of Mystery tour from his YouTube page. Of course, the Daily Mail and The Sun are more interested in how the 50 year old former Baywatch star looked and what she wore than the magic being performed.

There is a new magic show in Las Vegas. Inferno, starring illusionist Joe Labero, is opening at the Paris Las Vegas next week. Vegas News has details on the fire themed show and tickets are available on the show’s site.

Still battling with the flu… not sure how much more we’ll have up today.

Finally, Broadway World has the details on the newest College of Magic classes in Capetown, South Africa.
