When Lemmy Kilmister passed away recently, we knew that magicians beyond iTricks Tower Midwest were fans. Dan Sperry proves us right with his new Ace of Spades remix video.

You can keep up with Dan on his official website.

Even though Dan Sperry has been in New York lately with The Illusionists Broadway show, he posted this video earlier in the week shot in Mall of the Americas. In addition to his Broadway duties Dan is going to host the Cybertron New Year’s Eve Party at Blackthorn 51 in Queens. If you are going to be in town ringing in 2017, learn more at Dan’s tour page on his website.

Dan Sperry: Melting Cards And Minds

Dan Sperry closes out Tuesday for us with this very visual twist on a standard lost and revealed card. It pretty much speaks for itself. Dan, of course, is still out with The Illusionists.

Merry Christmas (2009) From Dan Sperry

A few Christmases ago, Dan Sperry posted this little twisted magic how-to on the the ol’ Interweb. It is magic for Christmas, not Christmas magic.

Yeah, maybe we should just call it quits for the day after that… So Mr. Sperry wraps up another Video Friday. As always, iTricks is hoping that all y’all have a great weekend whether you are working, practicing for that next show, finishing your holiday shopping or just starting your shopping! Happy holidays!

Dan Sperry Meets The People… And It Goes Poorly

Posted by Michael on December 5th, 2014

Dan Sperry has done a whole bunch with iTricks. I briefly met him at the big IBM/SAM over the summer; he is a really nice guy. But you know what? Some people just are not buying it, like this non-fan who would like Dan to check out the Book of Revelations and maybe expel his demons. We are guessing she did not vote for him on America’s Got Talent

Thanks for posting this on your YouTube page, Dan. It was not only good for a laugh but a good reminder that not everyone loves magic!

We’ll bring Video Friday to an end on that note. We hope all y’all iTricksters have a great weekend!

Mac King, Dan Sperry, Megan Knowles-Bacon And More [Magic Bulletin]

Kicking off Monday with a little new magic from Dan Sperry as part of the build up to The Illusionists on Broadway in a couple of weeks.

Now that we know where Murray is hanging his hat for the next year, John Katsilometes mentioned in his Las Vegas Sun column recently that Mac King signed on for another five years at Harrah’s, which will extend his run into 2019.

Magic Circle secretary Megan Knowles-Bacon was a guest on BBC Radio 4′s Saturday Live this weekend. The show, which is about an hour and a half, can be streamed here or downloaded as a podcast here.

Speaking of English magicians, Dynamo chatted with The Guardian recently in support of the Blu-Ray/DVD release of the last series of Magician Impossible. He covers life with Crohn’s disease and how that can affect him on the road; read it here.

Five year old magician Satvik Nayak is among the 20 children recognized by Indian President Pranab Mukherjee with the National Child Award for Exceptional Achievement for his shows promoting social issues. Read more in The Economic Times.

Finally, Fort Wayne Public Access has a new magic show called Magic Corner which you can catch on its YouTube Channel. They have already posted three episodes.

Throwing cards is hard… which is why most people learn to throw baseballs or shuriken instead. Dan Sperry takes a few seconds to show off his card throwing (or scaling) skills by murdering an innocent balloon!
