UK Street Magic Title, Penn and The Illusionists [Magic Bulletin]

Posted by Michael on July 3rd, 2014

The Manchester Evening News just reported that Dominic Anthony (that’s him above) has just been named the best under 18 street magician in England. The article never explains exactly what contest he won, but does report that his prize includes going to London to take some workshops with Ben Hamlin. Congratulations Dominic!

Salon.com sat down with Penn Jillette (fresh off his Wife Swap appearance). They cover a whole lot of ground under the headline “I Didn’t Want To Be A Stereotypical Hollywood Liberal.”

In case it slipped by you, dates for The Illusionists in North America through June 2015 have been announced. Check them out here. Dan Sperry, Jeff Hobson, Kevin James and more… what more could you want in a show?

Dan Sperry’s AGT Audition

Posted by Michael on May 23rd, 2014

Dan Sperry jumped onto television screens during the 2010 season of America’s Got Talent as one of the acts selected through a special YouTube competition (along with mini-phenom Jackie Evancho). This video is the bit that got him something like a million views and a spot on the big show. This is one of our favorite Sperry videos… because of the music!

Dan Sperry’s Strange Magic

Posted by Michael on March 13th, 2014

Dan Sperry is back with a new video that combines the camera work of The Blair Witch Project with a little sleight of hand. The spooky Mr. Sperry just finished up a few nights at The Magic Castle. If you have not been by lately, you should really check out the official Dan Sperry website; not only does it look great but it gives you a chance to keep up with Dan’s schedule or grab a bag of his signature coffee (which may seem odd at first but upon reflection, he does seem a bit over caffeinated).

Dan Sperry, Without Make Up Or Personal Birds

After yesterday’s roundly criticized bird act from India’s Got Talent, we thought this new video from Dan Sperry might prove a bit more popular. It is listed as being his “Basic Bird Act,” something he can do when traveling internationally and not allowed to use his own animals.

We like that Dan refers to them as “outsourced birds.”

Dan Sperry IS Santa (NSFW)

Not only is Santa real, but in a shocking twist that should scare the hell out of kids everywhere, he’s Dan Sperry. To prove it, Dan dressed up as the most disturbing St. Nick since the original Silent Night, Deadly Night, hit the mall and read people’s minds to determine their Christmas wishes. Be warned: Dan behaved himself but people want some messed up, and potentially offensive, gifts this year!

A Little Bird Action With The Anti-Conjurer

Posted by Michael on December 18th, 2013

Sure, it is fun to watch Dan Sperry mess with German talk show hosts or wretch over vegemite (which is gross), but don’t forget the guy does a legit stage show, too. Just to remind you, Dan posted this older video of his dove act.

Dan Sperry vs. Vegemite (NSFW)

This is your last warning: this video is not safe for work due to language!

Dan Sperry put a couple of new videos up a few days ago, but, thanks to our own experiences with vegemite, this non-magic one is our favorite. Sorry Australia, we know you love it but that stuff is nasty! Check out Dan’s other videos on his official YouTube channel.
