Clowns: Not Exactly Terrifying

Posted by Michael on October 4th, 2016

So with all of the bad publicity clowns have been getting lately, we figured we would give them a hand restoring their image. So, straight from 1952 we bring you an episode of NBC’s The Magic Clown, sponsored by Bonomo. See, everyone? Clowns are not exactly terrifying.

Of more interest to y’all iTricksters may be the equipment, which was from Tannen’s. In fact, during the end credits (if you can make it that far) the props are even touted as coming from Lou Tannen’s Magic Shop. For more information on The Magic Clown, visit IMDB and Wikipedia, where you can read about the revival with James Randi and get links to other episodes.

Louis Yan Phone Magic

Posted by Michael on September 28th, 2016

Here is a little more magic from Louis Yan, who was recently featured on iTricks. You do not need to be able to understand what they are saying to follow along… but don’t worry, it is subtitled in traditional Chinese!

(By the way, someone recently asked me why Chinese video is frequently subtitled in Chinese. Simple: there are scores of dialects in China plus those spoken outside of China and the subtitles help everybody follow along!)
