You Got Magic With Neel Madhav

Posted by Michael on February 4th, 2015

Neel Madhav may not be a familair name to iTricksters, but that may change. He is busy with his second season of You Got Magic, which airs on the NDTV Good Times network. At 21, he is actually very familiar with television after internships with MTV UK and a mother in the industry (who co-produces the show). You can see more of You Got Magic on its official YouTube page and you can learn more Neel Madhav in this recent article from The Hindu.

China Is Out The Get America With Magic City

Posted by Michael on February 4th, 2015

According to The Daily Show (so it must be true, right? It is on TV!) America has a great deal to fear from China’s new Magic City. Luckily, in the spirit of true activist journalism, they have decided to get into the fight and wake up American magic. I feel safer already…

On a side note, I wish I could wave my arms and magically create lower-thirds. Not the greatest superpower ever, I will admit, but I think I could make it work.

When Wizards Aren’t Warring

Posted by Michael on February 3rd, 2015

New from Rick Lax, guest on the last iTricks Magic Week in Review Podcast, is this behind the scenes look at Wizard Wars. There is Billy Kidd, bunnies and Bizzaro, who just happens to be the next iTricks Magic Week in Review Podcast guest.

Rick, by the way, was recently interviewed by Fox Business host John Stossel on intellectual property. There is not any video posted from the show, but if that changes we will share it. Rick was credited as a “Deception Expert”… not sure if that is because he is a magician or a lawyer.

Justin Flom Takes On WWE Superstars In Magic Smackdown

Posted by Michael on February 2nd, 2015

If you do not watch professional wrestling (which is almost unimaginable to pro wrestling’s many fans), you may have missed Wizard Wars‘ Justin Flom on WWE Smackdown last week. I will admit that I am not a wrestling fan, so I am not sure who anyone in this video is except for Justin. Maybe some of the iTricksters can help me out with some identifications.

Greg Dow On KTNV

Posted by Michael on February 2nd, 2015

You saw Greg Dow last week on Wizard Wars and this video is from pre-show publicity on Las Vegas station KTNV Channel 13. Greg does a little close up and recovers nicely after former Weather Channel host Dao Vu crushes the dreams of guys everywhere learning magic to pick up girls. There is also a glimpse at Greg’s pro-wrestling alter ego that Rick Lax mentioned on the last iTricks Magic Week in Review.

No lead off video today, instead Wizard Wars judge Penn JIllette on Wisconsin radio station WTMJ 620AM.

Speaking of Wizard Wars cast on the radio, Justin Flom was on The Brandon Parnes Hour of Fun, which you can find right here. Brandon is interested in talking to other magicians, by the way. You can contact him through the Johnson County Community College radio station here.

The Daily Herald (serving suburban Chicago) ran a feature on local boy Bill Cook who is competing on tonight’s episode of Wizard Wars.

Oh yeah, in case you forgot, Wizards Wars returns to SyFy with new episodes tonight (with all of the previous episodes running during the day), followed by the premiere of Close Up Kings.
