The Amazing Kreskin, who recently turned 80, is known as a mentalist but like almost all of us magic types, he started with a deck of cards. This recent clip from the CBC’s George Stroumboulopoulus shows something that is rarely seen: Kreskin’s skills with a deck of cards. I have to say, this might be my favorite Kreskin clip ever; it really highlights his gift with patter and his natural flare.
What better way to bring this week’s Video Friday to a close? Don’t despair, though, iTricksters! The end of a Video Friday means the beginning of a Hustler’s Weekend. Time to get out there and hustle… whether that means working or refining that new effect or jamming with your own magic circle*. Whatever it is, get out there, hustle and have a great weekend.
* Yeah, that is pretty lame, I admit… I think I mentioned I have been hitting the cold medicine pretty hard this week. The first draft of this actually said “jamming with your own magic posse” and that was just too ’80s, too wrong in general and magic circle is best I could do.
It’s been a long week.
