Dai Vernon - The Spirit of Magic

Dai Vernon - The Professor
Dai Vernon's (real name David Frederick Wingfield Verner) contributions to magic are unparalleled to this day, and he was, and still is, known as the magician's magician.

This fascinating documentary covering his life and work is a wonderful insight into the life of one of the greatest magicians whoever lived and became known as simply...  "The Professor".

This video also features clips and contributions from from David Verner (Dai's Son), Max Maven, Jay Marshall, Harry Lorraine, John Carney, Ricky Jay, and many others too. It really is worth a watch...

The Magic of Doug Henning

Doug Henning appeared regularly on television in his own annual TV specials "Doug Henning's World of Magic"- the first of which featured Doug performing Harry Houdini's Water Torture Escape and was hosted by Bill Crosby.  He made guest appearance on many shows including Tonight with Johnny Carson and The Muppets. He also made illusions for pop group, Earth, Wind and Fire and two for "King of Pop", Michael Jackson. He was, without doubt, the biggest magical star of the day but tragically his career and life were cut short. In early 2000 he was diagnosed with liver cancer... five months later he died. 

Doug Henning's legacy lives on with the magic he presented, shared, created and wrote about. Among the magic fraternity he is one magician that will never be forgotten.

Below is a wonderful five-minute clip, which was part of his Broadway show, and shows his skill as a close-up magician. Here you will see him perform magic with a Rubik's Cube, Cups and Balls and he even manages to make his feet disappear - the best part for me, very clever :)

R.I.P Doug Henning...

Andy's Magic Performs at Central Park...

Central Park Nursery, Telford
Over the years I've performed in such places as Hollywood, Broadway and today it was Central Park.

Ok, I'll come clean, I haven't been jetting around the United States, it was Hollywood in Birmingham, Broadway in the Cotswold's and today's gig wasn't Central Park in New York but Telford. But it was a brilliant party. 

Me, Nursery Owner, Marie, Staff and Children
I was booked to entertain a 60 strong crowd of children at the Central Park Nursery, in Central Park, Telford, to celebrate the Nursery's 19th Birthday. The children were so excited as they waited for everyone to arrive and for me to start. And when I did start they were fantastically enthusiastic and joined in with the games, loved winning the prizes, laughed their heads off during the magic show and loved collecting their balloon animals at the end.

This was a first visit for me to the nursery but I hope it won't be the last... It really was super.

Andy's Magic at Walnut Cottage Nursery

Today's show was over at Walnut Cottage Nursery in Shrawley near Worcester. The nursery have become regular customers of mine over the last few years and it's always a pleasure to visit them. On this particular visit I was accompanied by my youngest lad William. He helped me set-up and pack away, which was a great help. As you can see from the photo he's starting to get interested in magic and was already to perform as William the Wizard.

The show it's self was great. The kids loved the games at the beginning, and couldn't stop laughing during the show. At the end, and because they'd been so good, I decided to reward them with a balloon animal each. 

All in all, a smashing day of magic at Walnut Cottage Nursery in Shrawley near Worcester.

Dai Vernon - The Classic Cups and Balls Routine

He was seventy-eight-years-old and still had that magic touch that made him one of the great all-time magicians. Sit back and enjoy "The Professor" at his very best..

...Now that really was magic!
