Paperback Magic

Magician has a guest select any one of several paperback books and then the magician picks up the selected book, instructs the spectator to let him know when to stop.  Magician riffles through the pages until the spectator stops.  Magician shows spectator the page and proceeds to read from it.  

Preparation:  Magician selects 1-3 random paperback books.  Takes a pencil and writes the first sentence of every left page on the right top page.  This takes between 20-30 minutes for…

Old is new!

Old is new! My task is to show you that all of us have "stuff" packed away that we haven't used for years. We all have books that are in our library that we haven't  read since I can't remember when. There is gold in old manuscripts. A perfect examI ple is taking a trick that you like but it is getting tired. I really like Soft Soap as an went to some old manuscripts that was written back in the 60's by George McCathy. I found a routine that with just a little…

Kevin Jay On Radio Clatterbridge

Cheshire hypnotist and magician Kevin Jay recently had a little viral success with a video, leading to an appearance on Radio Clatterbridge. If Radio Clatterbridge sounds vaguely familiar for some reason, it may be because a few decades ago the community hospital radio station was the first radio station to interview The Beatles.
