Radislav And Olga: Silk Road

Posted by Michael on January 27th, 2017

Silk Road | Radislav and Olga from radislavsafin on Vimeo.

And now, from some version of the Got Talent franchise, we present Silk Road, the quick change act of Radislav and Olga. We did go to Radislav Safin’s official website, and all we could confirm there was that his contact information seems to place the act’s home in Kyrgyzstan but they seem to be traveling around Europe.

I think that if we have any theme today is might just be that you don’t need to share a language to share in magic! That is your thought for the weekend; have a great one and stay safe.

Ready For Breakfast With Cristina Strecopîtov?

Posted by Michael on January 27th, 2017

This video starts with a little talking that you probably won’t understand… but that is okay. Once Cristina gets going, you will be able to follow along as she performs a classic effect. Just in case you were considering it: DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!

You can see more of Cristina on her website, but it is not in English.

Blindfolded Brundage On The Today Show

Posted by Michael on January 26th, 2017

Steven Brundage visited the Today Show yesterday morning and brought out some new Rubik’s Cube magic for Al Roker, Tamron Hall and guest host Darius Rucker. You can catch more of AGT alum Steven over on his official website.

You know, you really have to hand it to Steven. I can’t think of the last time a magician popularized and owned magic with a single prop like this… Yes, Jeff McBride did a huge amount for the mask changes but the AGT platform and viral police stop video presented Steven with a huge initial introduction.

Posted by Michael on January 24th, 2017

Harry Connick Jr’s talk show hasn’t been on very long, but in his inaugural season he has already featured Mat Franco, Penn and Teller, at least one kid magician and now Lion Surchard’s mentalism. He also had a balloon artist last week.

Check your local listings for Harry airtimes and visit their YouTube page to see some of the other magic performances that have been featured so far this season.

Murray And Houdini’s Handcuffs

Posted by Michael on January 18th, 2017

This is obviously an older clip from Murray SawChuck; it is one of several clips from Masters Of Illusion he posted recently on his non-prank YouTube page.

The CW ordered new episodes of Masters of Illusion (and Penn & Teller: Fool Us) last October to air this summer but there is no confirmation on when the new shows will air.

Chris Ramsay Reacts To Chris Ramsay [NSFW]

Posted by Michael on January 13th, 2017

Chris Ramsay made a recent appearance on Montreal’s Breakfast Television. This video starts as behind the scenes but then jumps to Chris being brutally honest about his less than perfect performance. It is a little long but worth watching!

You can see more of Chris (including that video of Internet magic he mentions) on his YouTube page.
