Award Winning Magic From Abbott’s Get Together

Posted by Michael on August 12th, 2019

We have not seen very much video or news out of the 82nd Abbott’s Magic Get Together yet, partially because the YouTube search and sort function is on the blink and probably partially because attendees often post video after returning home. However, we have found this video of 8 year old Brynn Cummings award winning ventriloquism and magic act.

Congratulations Brynn!
