Jason Bishop On Magicians’ Assistants

Posted by Michael on January 4th, 2021

Illusionist Jason Bishop has a YouTube vlog featuring his views/comments on random magic videos he finds on YouTube. Normally, we avoid these kind of “reaction” videos for various reasons but Jason’s comments are pretty well thought out and fair. It is kind of a short lecture on magic appreciation! In this post, from the day after Christmas, he watches a piece on Hans Klok’s holiday magic show and he goes off a sidebar on the importance of magicians’ assistants.

You can see more of Jason’s magic video critiques on his YouTube page.

He don’t know if our favorite part was the appearance or the fact that Aaron prepared a special show that he could do a solo performance after this effect!

This clip of Eric Giliam performing is not the best shot clip, but it was posted by his assistant Michelle Milan and we are strong supporters of magic assistants around these parts! Michelle is also an aerialist; we couldn’t find a website for her but you can see more on her YouTube page.
