Entertainment Tonight shared an update on Jonathan Goodwin’s condition last Friday. It is heartening to see Johnathan appears to be in good spirits.

Masters Of Illusion Returns Sunday

Posted by Michael on October 21st, 2021

The CW’s Killer Camp (that’s the promo above) has been pulled off the air after two episodes so Masters of Illusion will be returning to fill its one hour Sunday time slot. I have seen coverage stating these will be new episodes and other stories aging they will be repeats. I am guessing The CW will follow the pattern of previous years and show a new episode followed by a repeat the fill the hour.

TMZ reported last night Johnathan Goodwin has suffered multiple broken bones in both legs as well as cuts and burns to his face.

The video above, from Jonathan’s YouTube page, shows the escape artist is happier (and sillier) times.

Jonathan Goodwin Hospitalized After Stunt Goes Wrong

Posted by Michael on October 18th, 2021

Jonathan “The Daredevil” Goodwin was injured in an accident on the set of the new NBC series America’s Got Talent Extreme. The video above, from Access, does not show the accident nor will iTricks share any videos supposedly showing the incident. According to Deadline production on the series has been paused indefinitely. There has not been, at time of writing, official word of Goodwin’s condition beyond the fact he is hospitalized.

I think we will be pausing iTricks for the rest of the day… It just somehow does not seem right to enjoy any magic performances right now.

Louisville’s Caufield’s Novelty No Longer For Sale

Posted by Michael on October 14th, 2021

Good news for Caufield’s Novelty in Lousville; the business is no longer for sale. The shop, which has been up for sale for a couple of years, has seen so much support from the community they no longer feel the need to down-size. This WDRB report concentrates on Halloween, as you may imagine this time of year, but the brick and mortar has been a magic retailer as well.
