Happy 95th Betty White

Posted by Michael on January 17th, 2017

The quality of this video is not very good but it was the only clip we could find with Betty White and a magician (in this case a 13 year old named, we think, Michael Frieman to Fryman?). It is from the Donny and Marie talk show that lasted for a season or two around 2000. We are posting this because today is Betty White’s 95th birthday. She’s not really connected to magic, but she is a kind of a national entertainment treasure!

Rob Lake has released a new produced piece giving fans a peek at the big team (and little dog) behind Rob Lake’s stage show. You can see more of Rob on his official website.

Magic For Asking Alexandria [NSFW]

Posted by Michael on January 13th, 2017

Welcome to a special frozen Friday the 13th edition of Video Friday!

Vince Williams recently posted this video of him performing backstage for the British hard rock group Asking Alexandria. The band actually seems to be magic fans albeit it foul-mouthed ones. Personally, my favorite part of this video is the fact that there is a Backstreet Boys song playing in the background. What is that about?

Mario The Magician Is Clowning Around

Posted by Michael on January 12th, 2017

Just a simple little bit of fun with Mario the Magician… see more at his official website. It is one of my favorite magic websites for the simple reason that his splash page has the best tag ever: As seen on Sesame Street and Sprout.

Ryan Joyce Is Back [NSFW]

Posted by Michael on December 28th, 2016

It has been a while since Ryan Joyce has posted a video, but he is back! Ryan and company troop through the snow to pull his stage show props out of storage and prepare to present a show they haven’t done in a couple of years! There is some mild adult language (call it PG-13) early on in the video.

Follow Ryan’s adventures on land and sea on his YouTube page.

Establishing An iTricks Holiday Tradition

Posted by Michael on December 23rd, 2016

I don’t remember if we have posted this every year since it came out, but I know I watch it every year (often more than once). This is the video that introduced us to friend of iTricks Ryan Joyce and if we could make it run in a 24 hour loop Christmas Story style every year, we would! Enjoy!

This is it for iTricks for the week… not sure how much we will be posting between now and New Year Day. Until then, just stay safe and spread the magic!

Watch Out Dorenbos, Here Comes Luiz

Posted by Michael on December 22nd, 2016

This video, recently posted by the Chelsea Football Club, shows that American football players aren’t the only pro athletes with magic chops. David Luiz of Chelsea (and the Brazilian National Team) is demonstrating some of his card prowess in the locker room after a game… maybe we should keep an eye out for him on Britain’s Got Talent or Brazil’s Got Talent, too!
