2. Magic Monday - Santa Monica Playhouse
Article forwarded on by Mel Kientz (US)

Experience the thrill of magic and spellbinding illusions with a rotating cast of master magicians every week in the Magic Monday cabaret at the Santa Monica Playhouse from May 16 through June 27.

Created by the same team and star Albie Selznick of the theatrical smash hit, Smoke and Mirrors, this weekly variety show is unlike any other in Los Angeles in its accessibility and entertainment value. All are welcome to witness the greatest in prestidigitation, the latest mind-blowing acts and unbelievable feats in an intimate setting that brings magic up close and personal with a rotating roster of renowned magicians that have been seen in TV and popular venues worldwide.

Coming off the successful Magic Monday shows at the Odyssey Theatre last year, this highly anticipated series returns at the Santa Monica Playhouse for eight performances. Every show introduces a new lineup of world renowned magicians, making each show a unique night of magical entertainment. Guests can look forward to being dazzled by a variety of acts from show-stopping feats, sleight of hand parlor games, interactive illusions and more. The intimate space also allows for a more up close and personal experience that will leave audiences even more amazed and feel as though they are part of the action themselves. Magic Monday is also a family-friendly entertainment option, and appeals to every one of all ages.

Producer Michelle Grant and lifetime member of the Magic Castle Albie Selznick saw a need in Los Angeles for a weekly magic show from their huge success with the long-running theatrical drama, Smoke and Mirrors. "It became obvious to us that people want to see magic. Lately, there's a lot of interest in it like with Penn and Teller's new TV show, Fool Us. Audiences want something different. They want to say, "How did they do that?"

Grant agrees. "We were so thrilled by the overwhelming response when we introduced Magic Monday last winter. There's a market in Los Angeles for a cabaret style magic show. We hope to continue bringing more magicians to audiences in this special way that brings magic to everyone."

5. The Magic Word Podcast: Kieron Johnson
Message by Scott Wells, M.I.M.C. with Gold Star

Kieron Johnson is more than a magician and creative consultant to well-known magicians, but he also has a rather, uh…unique talent?? Or should I say ability? Either way, being a regurgitator and water spouter certainly piqued my interest that led to this week's interview. It was also recommended to me by Michael Trixx, one of the Friends of The Magic Word that, after he watched his Penguin lecture, I should chat with Kieron. When I saw him perform at the recent F.F.F.F. convention, I was completely fooled with his production of a can of steaming hot tea and the signed card in a block of ice from his wallet.

But during our interview, he pulled out a coin to demonstrate his ability to regurgitate. So, while still recording our chat, I video recorded him regurgitating a coin (heads or tails, my choice) then doing it again but this time pulling it out of his nose! It was pretty disgusting and once seen, you cannot un-see it. The video along with the podcast is on this week's Magic Word. But be forewarned, this is not for the weak of heart!

You can watch the video, read the blog, get links, enter the contest, hear product reviews, see some photos, hear the podcast and download the MP3 file at: http://themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/292-kieron-johnson

I want to also welcome David Hira as the newest Friend of The Magic Word. It is because of Friends like David and others that we are able to continue to produce these podcasts each week and also to offset domestic shipping costs on our contests. And speaking of contests, we are extending the contest for one more week for a copy of "Framework" by Tom Frame. All the information is on The Magic Word Podcast website.

7. Braining Storming Technique - #399 - Kyle Peron
Message by Kyle Peron

Since I have been talking a lot recently about creativity in magic and how you can open yourself up to being more creative with your magic, I have gotten a lot of requests from folks wondering if there are any brain storming techniques that can be used to help in the creative process. I would like to share with you one of the techniques I use most often and that has really helped me out over the years. I hope it might do the same for you.

Being an artist and graphic designer, I have always used different creative and brain storming techniques to generate art ideas for my fine art as well as my logo designs. I just had never thought about the fact that some of these techniques that I had always used, could not only carry over to magic, but could really work well.

The problem with creativity and brain storming is that we cannot always focus as much as we want to be able to. There are so many outside influences and distractions that prevents our mind from staying on topic. We tend to drift around too much and never get a chance to lock in on some great ideas and to really explore them in detail.

The other problem is that we over think things too much. We often get hung up on trying to be creative and trying hard to figure out a particular idea, that we allow other great ideas to just roll on by our mind. All this frustration often leads to lack of creativity and so we shy away from trying it again out of fear.

So how can you brain storm effectively to really generate results while avoiding some of these more common pitfalls? Well, one suggestion is to occupy your mind and teach your mind to think a certain way by simply fooling it. The mind is great at doing tasks and accomplishing them. When your mind is actively involved in a step by step process, there is no time for it to wander like it often does in most creative processes that we have used in the past.

One way to do this is a form of brain storming that was taught to me years ago and that I have modified since then over time. It is a process that focuses the mind to being creative even if it does not realize it is doing so.

It works something like this: Start off with an idea that you have for an act, routine or even a show. Figure out to yourself what are the main words or ideas that you want to generate ideas for in this new act or routine. Try and come up with the single words that best reflect this act.

For example, let's use the idea of coming up with a magical routine that is themed around the idea of art. When we look at it we get two main words that are the focus for this act. Those words are "art" and "magic". Next, take out a sheet of paper and on the left side of the page, write the word art on the top. Now go over to the right side of the page and write the word Magic. Start with the word art. Start to think of any word that you can think of that has to do with the word art. The idea here is a free-flowing generation of words.

You are not trying to develop ideas or thoughts. Just simply write down words that you associate to the word art. Some of these words might be; paper, color, paint, paintbrush, easel etc. I think you get the idea. Now you do the same thing for the word magic. Just generating words and not stopping to dwell on any of them.

Once you have compiled your lists, the fun and creativity really starts to happen. The idea is to start to cross reference words from both lists to generate new words and new creative ideas. For example you may take the word paintbrush from one list and the word "vanish" from the other list. All of a sudden you generate the idea of a vanishing paintbrush. You keep doing this by cross-referencing other words together.

By doing this your teaching your brain to stay focused by occupying it with a select group of steps it must do. But in the end you are generating ideas and creative thoughts that you may not have come up with on your own or in other means. It really does work and is quite amazing what can be generated just from this simple process.

I hope you may give this a try. If you do, please let me know how it works out for you. I am sure it will work. So sure that I can almost guarantee you will create better ideas and at a faster rate than ever before.

If anyone would like other thoughts on this, or a better explanation of the process, please just e-mail me at magic4u02@aol.com. I would be happy to discuss it more with you. What other brain storming techniques have worked for you?

8. 88th Annual IBM Convention
Message by Shawn Farquhar (Canada)

The 88th annual IBM convention, being held in San Antonio, Texas this July is proud to announce that for three consecutive days they will present three one man shows featuring the incredible talents of Brian Gillis, Paul Vigil and Richard Turner. Brian Gillis is an exceptional talent having been featured on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and is always a Magic Castle favourite. In recent news Brian is one of three main stars in a new motion picture entitled Magicians: Life in the Impossible.

Paul Vigil, is also an accomplished performer and I believe Master Magician Lance Burton said it best when he said "Paul Vigil is soft-spoken and humble, but behind that compelling demeanor is a diabolical mind. He is one of the best magicians working today!" The final member of the cast for the Triple Treat Shows is none other than Richard Turner, the Master Card Mechanic, who despite a recent and severe injury to his thumb promises to present a show unlike anything you have ever seen before. Each show is presented daily to allow the artists to present to a small intimate audience rather than what has slowly become the norm, that of making an audience watch a television screen to see the magic at live events.

The evening shows have also been announced and they are certainly quite different than past conventions. This year the opening show has a unique theme in that it is featuring only acts who have successfully fooled Penn & Teller on their hit show on the CW network in the USA and ITV in the UK. Artists will include Steven Brundage, Eric Jones, Joshua Jay, Shawn Farquhar, Leon Etienne, Handsome Jack and Wes Barker. Keeping to tradition the second evening gala will feature the finest from the general stage contests as they compete for the rarely presented Gold Medal.

Precious winners of this award include Lance Burton, James Cielen, Greg Frewin, George Saterial and Arthur Trace. Closing out this amazing evening, where you get to help choose the champion, will be the current FISM North American champions from Canada, Trevor and Lorena Watters. The final gala, aptly named The Great BIG Magic Show, will be hosted by comedy magician Stephen Bargatze and will include such artists as Scott Pepper, Joseph Gabriel, Chris Randall and the current world champions of mentalism Thommy Ten and Amélie from Austria.

Drop on by our website at www.ibmconvention.com to find out more about things like the panel talk from the winners of Fool Us, Joshua Jay's Tragic Magic event, Eugene Burger and Jeff McBride's 25th Anniversary of the Magic and Mystery School and a whole lot more...

12. Broken Wand - Mo Howarth
Message by Dr Roger Woods AIMC*

1922 - 2016
Maurice Stanworth Howarth, known to everyone as 'Mo', was born on the 19th June 1922 and passed away on 21st April 2016 aged 93 years. His father Edward Howarth (known as 'Ned') had been an Iron Turner at the local foundry in Burnley and married Mo's mother Annie Langley, a Cotton Weaver, on 30th April 1908. Mo had an elder sister Helen ('Nellie'). Annie Langley became a proficient ventriloquist having been taught by her brother James Langley. Mo said his father was always forward thinking and quite a successful entrepreneur.

Ned and Annie decided that her skill as a ventriloquist could provide the family with a new livelihood away from the toils of the foundry and the mill. Annie created her ventriloquism act and Ned became her manager. She arranged for Bert Aza to become her agent; he was agent for Gracie Fields. As 'Josephine Langley' Annie was very successful as a lady ventriloquist touring the theatres and music halls during and after the First World War as recounted in the book written by me and Mo 'Josephine Langley Lady Ventriloquist : The Story of Mrs Edward Howarth' which we published in 2008. Mo was delighted that we had been able to tell his mother's story of how a Burnley mill girl became a successful music hall artiste.

It was a family joke that Mo had 'appeared' on the stage at the Blackburn Grand Theatre in 1921 when 'Josephine Langley' presented her ventriloquism act as she was, of course, expecting Mo at that time. At the age of 5 years Mo was taught simple magic tricks and ventriloquism by his father and mother ensuring an interest which extended over an amazing eight years! He never stopped seeking to learn something new.

In the 1920s Great Britain suffered a long period of economic depression and as times became hard the family made a momentous decision to immigrate to America. In 1929 they went to Fall River in Massachusetts and also lived in New Bedford. 'Josephine Langley' continued to perform her act on occasions in the Chicago, Massachusetts and Boston areas appearing in "variety". Ned meanwhile found work as a lorry driver during Prohibition, bootlegging illegal shipments of liquor. Mo, who continued his primary education in the America, had many exciting tales of those times and he sometimes rode along in the lorry. However, economic conditions in America were just as bad after the 'Wall Street crash' in October 1929 so the family decided to return to England.

On their return from America Ned worked at the Burnley Victoria Theatre and as a boy Mo operated the "limes" (intense white lighting used in theatres at the time) and saw many artistes over the years. He remembered seeing in the 1930s and 1940s magicians such as Jasper Maskelyne, Voltaire, Chris Charlton, Jack Ledair, Les Levante, Benson Dulay, Cingalee, Claude Williams, Cingalee, Jack and Mary Kinson, the Great Benyon, Robert Harbin, Joe Stuthard and Maurice Fogel. Jasper Maskelyne was aloof and very strict with his staff. Robert Harbin was genial and very kind. He also recalled the ventriloquists David Poole, Raymond Smith and Arthur Prince.

Ned died in 1939. Despite his great love of magic, ventriloquism and the theatre Mo decided he would get a 'proper job'. He went to work for the Prestige Group in Burnley which was well known as the manufacturer of pressure cookers and kitchen utensils. He ended up as Chief Draftsman in charge of the drawing office. It always caused him much amusement to think he had earned his living using a pencil long before the days of computer design. He also did engineering drawings on commission for other small businesses in the area. He always maintained an interest in engineering fascinated by anything mechanical.

During the Second World War Mo was not allowed to join the services as his job was classed as a 'reserved occupation' vital to the home war effort. So, he joined all the auxiliary services and spent much of his time using his drawing skills to draw maps distributing them among his colleagues in the Home Guard with the help of a friend who owned a motor cycle.

Helen Yeadon, Mo's elder sister became an accomplished ventriloquist in her own right and Mo's nephew, her son John Yeadon visited Mo in later years. John is a professional artist having lectured on the subject for thirty years at Coventry University. John's elder brother, Mo's other nephew is also called Maurice and has just retired as Professor of Sports Science at Loughborough University.

After the War Mo was involved with a concert party and through this met Ken Green who became his lifelong magical friend until Ken's death in 1998. Ken had been a member of The Modern Mystic League since 1942 and Mo joined in 1947. At the time of his death Mo was the oldest member. Ken and Mo appeared at many magic dinners and events together and became regular features at magic conventions throughout the United Kingdom where their humour and practical jokes became legendary. Ken usually came up with something outrageous but Mo always went along with it! Mo attended nearly every Blackpool Convention since they began from 1953 until 2012 and held the record for the most guest performances (fourteen). He also went to many International Brotherhood of Magicians, British Ring Conventions.

Mo and Mona were married on 2nd July 1949. An elegant lady Mo said she taught him about many things such as food, cooking and dressing well. Mo was always well turned out and smart, seldom without a tie. Mona became a tax inspector working for the Inland Revenue. She was an enthusiast for amateur dramatics and a leading member of The Highcliffe Players in the Burnley area, taking part in many productions. She also became wardrobe mistress and at one time their house was full of all kinds of costumes and clothes.

Although they had no children of their own they had family members and many friends. Mo respected Mona's interest in the theatre just as much as she respected his interest in magic. Sadly Mona suffered much ill health before her death in June 1998. Mo keenly felt her loss. Lately his affairs were dealt with by Chris and Jim and Mo's cousin Connie, a retired Doctor from London, also visited.

Following his retirement from the Prestige Group Mo took part time employment as a curator at Towneley Hall, Burnley's historic country house and was sent on courses on art appreciation and antiques which he greatly enjoyed. He stayed at Towneley until 1987. When his aunt left him the necessary materials he had taken up oil painting specialising mainly in abstract art.

Mo became what would be described as a "semi-professional" magician, doing many shows in the clubs and for masonic events through his Manchester agent Ray Fenton. He worked in the Lancashire and Cheshire areas, holding down his full time job at Prestige at the same time. Mo's speciality was "Josephine", named after his mother; a hand figure constructed in front of the audience which came to life and engaged in witty repartee and singing with Mo and the audience. For Josephine and his opening item, the cut and restored bicycle tyre inner tube, Mo became very well known in the world of magic.

Mo was a keen member of the Modern Mystic League becoming President in 1962 and again in 2004. Ill health prevented him from taking up the post again in 2016. He was also Concert Secretary in 1955, 1959 - 1961 and together with Ken Green in 1980. He contributed a monthly column 'Mo's Moan' to the MeMeL magazine for over fifty years. He was made an Honorary Vice President in 2009 and presented with a special card and gift at the meeting on 10th June 2012 to celebrate his ninetieth birthday on 19th June 2012.

Incidentally he published twelve editions of 'Mo's Moan' in the 'Abracadabra' weekly magic magazine and was amused to recount the story of being threatened with legal action by David Nixon's Solicitors after his forthright comments about one of David Nixon's TV shows! He also published some fourteen magic effects in the same magazine and invented several others including a card effect 'Chinese Poker' and 'Growing Under Glass' a production trick utilising a glass wrapped in newspaper. He was a member of the Order of the Magi, Manchester (being made a Fellow of the Order in 1981) and the Pendle Wizards, Nelson taking part in many of their shows. He was also a member of the Cavendish Knights of Close up Magic.

I first met Mo in the early 1970s. However, I got to know him much more after Ken Green's death when we began to attend many magic conventions and events together. He was good company and we talked about lots of things especially magic. Mo described himself as a liberal and liked to keep up with current affairs. He really enjoyed visiting the British Close Up Symposiums in Bath when we were able to visit various art galleries and museums as well and took part twice in the 'Bizarre Bath' comedy walk. When we went to the South Tyneside International Magic Conventions he loved to see the huge Scandinavian ferry ships passing by our hotel windows. He really enjoyed it when with Trevor (Dawson) we were able to attend The Magic Circle Centenary in 2005.

It was always a treat to call on Mo at his home or go out somewhere for a meal. He liked his food and drink and good conversation, particularly about magic and the latest tricks. He was well read and kept up to date with the magic magazines. He never seemed to lose his enthusiasm for magic. He just liked people, dogs and anything interesting to talk about. He was an inspiration to many people.

Mo loved the company of other magicians and being able to pass on his considerable knowledge of magic, theatre and stagecraft. He especially loved the comradeship of our Society (The Modern Mystic League (Blackburn & District Society of Magicians)). He liked the Workshop meetings and the opportunities to help each other. He presented the Modern Mystic League with the Mo Howarth 'Tyro' Trophy to be awarded each year to the most promising junior member. He helped so many magicians with his advice and constructive comments.

I have never met another magician so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He told a good joke, appreciated female company (his good friend Gabrielle was with him at the end) and liked a pint of beer. There are so many memories. We will all miss him so much. Rest in Peace Maurice Howarth; gentleman, uncle, draftsman, engineer, magician, ventriloquist, artist, raconteur, dog lover, friend and all round good guy.

13. Broken Wand - Brian Spencer Penman of Christchurch, New Zealand
Message by John Ross (NZ)

It is our sad responsibility to advise of the passing on Sunday May 1 of Brian Spencer Penman following a long and painful battle with cancer. Brian was a gentle, quiet natured man with a big smile who was taken before his time at the young age of fifty eight years. He was a member of the Canterbury Society of Magicians for 20 years up until 2012. He presented a professional, very colourful and smooth stage act entitled "the magic of Brian Penman" which included the production of doves from nowhere or from flimsy silk scarves. The doves were subsequently vanished in mid-air complete with their large cage. This drew gasps of astonishment from the audience. There were many other surprises during his performances; for example the candle which seemed to burn through a handkerchief and then disappear altogether. A rabbit also featured in Brian's act to the delight of all the young children present. Brian was also an accomplished children's party performer who had a winning way with all the young ones.

Brian's stage act complemented his other business activities. Together with Linda and his family he ran a venture of show ground and carnival bouncy castles, go carts, mini golf, balloon animals, sales of toy wind mills and other items. Through all their entertainment activities of magic, showground rides and bouncy castles Brian and wife Linda have undoubtedly brought joy and great memories to countless young children.

Brian was a very hard working man but one who's priority was his family. His other passions included fishing, ballroom dancing and owning and managing a number of rental properties.

Brian's funeral on Friday May 6 was attended by many relatives, friends and colleagues. Several magicians attended, with magic tributes and the broken wand ceremony performed by two Canterbury Society of Magicians members.

As Brian was taken from the "Atrium" several white pigeons were released and their flight up into the clear blue sky was an uplifting and emotional conclusion to Brian's farewell.

Brian is survived by his loving wife Linda, mother Gwyneth, son Martin, daughters Amanda and Natasha and granddaughter Jazmine. Keith DeDulin (of Constable Keith fame) officiated.

14. Bristol Day of Magic 2016
Message by Mandy Davis (UK)

This year the Bristol Day of Magic took on a new team and a new venue. After fifty-five years, with several at Weston-Super-Mare, it looked as if the Day wasn't going to happen until Paul Macleavy decided to continue the tradition. The old venue was no longer available so he hired a school in Nailsea, between Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare, which has some excellent facilities in its shiny new premises. Meals were available and a small dealer area was set up.

The event started with a lecture by Richard Griffin who spoke about cruising and covered several of the effects he uses in one of his two forty-five minute shows: the Nosey Volunteer, an ingenious Card through Hanky, a bottle top routine and a fascinating Matrix using a note pad and spots and the Torn and Restored poster that would appear in his performance in the Gala Show.

Then we saw Paul Stone, over from Las Vegas and ready to talk about his life as an Executive Producer of shows such as the two he had run at the London Palladium in honour of, firstly, Siegfried and Roy and, subsequently, John Calvert's 100th birthday. He also talked about his friendship with Ken Brooke and his close association with Hans Moretti, both providing some great stories. In between Paul showed us his new close up version of Overboard, a utility prop based on a Ken Brooke one and a very useful tool for customised magic. He intrigued us with Mumbo Jumbo, a kind of appearing card, and also the Nemo Rising Cards which was another from Ken Brooke.

After lunch we met Inaki Zabaletta from Argentina, a funny and clever magician, whose accented English enhanced his quirky performances. He was introduced by Paul Ray, the British Ring IBM President who was to compere the Gala Show later that evening.

Inaki (pronounced Inyecki) started with two cards being selected and lost in the deck. He removed the Jokers which amazingly changed into the two selections and back again. His method for this was fascinating, using a principle from an old Spanish magician. He used the same method for his version of Out of This World, placing the cards in two tumblers for a more visible effect. His wine production, without a jacket, was simple but effective, based on that of Bob Read. Then it was back to his same card method for Cards Across which also utilised a false count from Derek Dingle and sounds to give the impression of cards passing from one person to the other.

His final trick was based on a Malini one which involved a chosen card being returned to the deck. A silk covered the cards and three slaps on the covered deck caused it to vanish, leaving only the selection.

All of Inaki's work was done with great humour and had us laughing along with him from the start. We all looked forward greatly to seeing him perform both close up and stage later.

The junior workshop saw mostly familiar faces who had attended on previous years and they were delighted to see their first tutor was one of the local idols - and now a huge name - Kieron LeFever! The ten young guys (yes, sadly, all male) asked immediately to be taught regurgitation which was not going to happen - but Kieron did entertain them with a polo mint demonstration! He then neatly sidetracked them to his Rubik's cube work and they happily enjoyed learning some great ideas and methods as it was something they wanted to use in their repertoires.

Next up was stage magician Richard Griffin whose stage manipulations had everyone's fingers and cards working overtime as he carefully taught some basic back palms and some more intricate vanishes and reappearances of split fans. Finally we were delighted to have the return of Russell Levinson to the Bristol Day Junior Workshop - he taught a basic version of Out of This World and another very useful self-working card trick followed by the Elmsley Count with a couple of ways to use it effectively. Those who had learned this count before told me how pleased they were as they'd completely forgotten they knew it or how versatile it was!

The Close Up show was performed twice, once whilst we were at the Junior Workshop and again after it had ended. There were three performers.

Dave Bonsall, of Prop Dog started with Ring Flite and then vanished the ring once more, to be found in a sealed envelope in his wallet. He moved on with a very fast selected card section which included Card on Forehead and ended with the Omnideck. He closed with the vanish and appearance of sugar from a packet in various ways, such as loose sugar to sugar cube, with the packet ending up restored.

David Jones had lots of jokes to offer as he teased us with a silk and a thumb tip before executing a one handed shuffle of a deck of cards. He had ten cards chosen and found each one in different ways before sitting at a table to perform eloquently with a pile of coins, a leather cylinder and a piece of cork. His last trick saw three people take small packets of cards off the deck, look at the bottom card and shuffle them, returning them to the deck. Dave was then able to name each of the first two chosen cards before naming every card in the third person's hand and finally naming his chosen one.

Inaki Zabellate had cards named one at a time as he found them effortlessly and magically in the deck he held. Then two spectators chose cards which were 'invisibly' taken from the deck and reversed only to be found face up in the middle of the face down deck. Inaki spoke about cheating at card games. Four cards were then chosen from random places in the deck and all proved to be the Aces. He continued by shuffling the deck and dealing Aces as every fifth card. Finally he asked for a member of the audience to call out a poker hand, the cards he chose to make that and the position at the table of the person with that winning combination. Inaki was able to deal a Full House of fours and eights to the fourth player as requested.

Time for a last visit to the dealers, and a fish and chip supper from the caterers, then it was on with the Gala Show which proved to run a lot longer than expected.

Paul Ray cracked gags throughout his compere spots apart from his last appearance when he sung along to an old pop song with watery results! The first act was Megan Knowles-Bacon performing as a prima ballerina. We saw Appearing Cane, Drink in News where she turned water into wine, the appearance of a bouquet and a dancing cane, all done 'en pointe'. Her Linking Ring routine was very beautifully done and a special feature of the act was a floating ballet shoe. She ended with Snowstorm in China.

Matt Pang is a street performer and spent a while building up the audience, getting them to give a Mexican wave and applause before he caught his hat on his head when it was thrown to him by a spectator. He then went on to balance the hat on a cigar, held in his mouth, before some other balancing tricks. His final section was a long preparation towards his escape from a straightjacket while balanced on a unicycle.

Richard Griffin appeared as a very large clown! Everything he touched went wrong, including a torn and restored newspaper. The sad clown walked into a hoop of black material and lifted and dropped it around himself - for one of the fastest costume changes as Richard reappeared immaculately dressed and ready to continue.

He magically constructed a cocktail in a glass, everything appearing magically He removed his tie and the little paper umbrella appeared from it before the tie reappeared around his neck. A very fast Dancing Hank followed and then he performed Cardographic followed by a Torn and Restored poster which he'd explained in his lecture earlier. His classic card manipulations were beautifully done and then he pushed a silk into a balloon before performing some rope magic which ended with a spray of confetti. There was some audience participation too as the spectator on the stage had a free choice of clown's hat, bow tie and comedy nose - all of which matched Richard's prediction. He ended the act by eating several coloured flat rings and some candy floss before bringing it all out of his mouth in a long string with the rings tied at intervals along it. He ended his act with a snowstorm.

Hulan from the Mongolian State Circus was refreshing as she is a contortionist who performed on a circular plinth. It was not an act anyone there was likely to copy as she molded her body into amazing fantasy shapes.

Paul Ray performed the Rich Marotta version of the Oswald Rae Hold Up trick before introducing funny man Mark James. I can honestly say that in the past I had seen Mark perform and not been impressed with him at all but this time I enjoyed every minute! Gone were the tired gags and now we had fresh material that offended no one - and surprises such as the appearing cane as he was talking which seemed to surprise him as much as the rest of us. He used silent movie cue cards to perform a version of the Invisible Deck and then did the Colour-Changing Hank. He took a photo of all the audience for his Facebook page and then had a card chosen from a borrowed deck in order to perform his own Sam Spade type patter before finding the card. He ended with a spoof tie race, and then the juggling of plastic carrier bags plus, believe it or not, mouse trap juggling!

Inaki opened with something that continued throughout his act, Cards from Mouth. He did his aforementioned bottle production, and a gag with a coat hanger when removing his jacket, before producing another bottle for Drink in News which led into Torn and Restored Newspaper. This was all done to music but now the patter section started. Inaki then performed the Colour Changing Hank too - but this time every silk appearance was a different colour, ending with a whole line of silks. His Six Card Repeat was very different too as he dropped cards all the time but still ended up with six left in his hand. Five cards were now chosen for a blindfold Card Stab done on a board on a table. The cards were shuffle spread by a spectator before Inaki found every single one by stabbing a sharp knife into the table top. He ended with a newspaper that turned into a newsprint jacket and a final Cards from Mouth.

The last act of the night was White Magic - Michael White and his assistant, the contortionist Hulan who is now his fiancee. He started with a dancing cane and then Hulan returned with some more floor contortions. There was a section of appearing and multiplying CDs and then a large radio was vanished to become some giant CDs - this was his award winning CD act from the recent past. Then it was onto the illusions - Hulan was produced from an empty cage, then climbed into a large red and white box that was dissected and had poles pushed through it before it was opened to show she had disappeared. After she was recovered, Michael walked through a solid steel plate and then balanced Hulan on three scimitars before removing two of them so she was suspended on one. Hulan then performed an archery effect using her feet to pull the bow and shoot the arrow before she climbed into a very small glass tank and was vanished to appear in the doorway of the auditorium. Finally Michael climbed into a large open box on a stand and a curtain was held up by Hulan, before they magically changed places.

It was a full day and a shame that it ended almost an hour after schedule but we saw some great magic and wonder what's in store for Bristol Day next year!
