Steve Valentine Hits YouTube

Posted by Michael on October 26th, 2017

Steve Valentine might be more familiar to some iTricksters as an actor (who frequently plays a magician) than he is as a magician. But he is a really good magician! He recently jumped into YouTube with this video and five short Halloween magic/prank tutorials that you can see on his YouTube page.

Around iTricks Tower Midwest, we like “The Fly.”

World Juggling Day Is (Still) Coming

Posted by Michael on June 13th, 2017

After seeing an article that said National Magic Day was this week (as opposed to in October, which is what we have always heard), it reminded us that Saturday is World Juggling Day. Just in case the last tutorial we posted did not teach you how to juggle, we found this one from world record holding juggler David Slick! Catch more of him at his website and learn more about World juggling Day at the International Jugglers’ Association site.

Learn A Little Magic With IBM Ring 129

Posted by Michael on May 1st, 2017

Here is a clip from David Sandy of IBM Ring 129… right here in Kansas City (which is more or less the home of iTricks Tower Midwest V2.0). What a great way to promote the Ring. Perhaps I will make it down there soon!

If you are in the KC area, visit Ring129.com. Otherwise, check in with the national site at Magician.org.

Easter Magic And Pranks With Sankey And More

Posted by Michael on April 13th, 2017

Easter is this weekend so some of your favorite YouTube magicians are putting out Easter prank videos. Jay Sankey, as seen above, has an actual Easter themed magic tutorial. Rich Ferguson goes the prank route and ranges from nice little bunny ears to things that will get someone mad at you! Evan Era goes with pranks, too, but also brings the sponge bunnies into the mix and takes the time to teach some sleight of hand and some low grade mentalism in his 16 minute video.

Hey, while we are on the subject of Easter, can I just get on the soapbox for a minute and beg all y’all iTricksters not to give anyone a live bunny or chick unless they are 100% committed to owning the animal as a pet? Also, for those of you magicians looking to add a rabbit or chicken (or even duck) to your act start doing the necessary research now because in about two months your local animal shelters will be overflowing!

Now Rahat Has Turkey Day Magic For You

Posted by Michael on November 22nd, 2016

It all started off with Rich Ferguson teaching Thanksgiving pranks. Then Stuart Edge had the Thanksgiving tricks tutorial. Now Rahat is in on the action.

What is with all the learning magic for Thanksgiving? Well, Stuart did have an explanation for his video but ’round iTricks Tower Midwest we can’t help but wonder if it has something to do with today’s magicians having a strong association between magic and the holiday because of the World’s Greatest Magic specials.

You can always catch more of Rahat on his YouTube page.
