Paul Vigil

Today's guest is probably your favorite magician's favorite magician.  He’s considered one of the most influential thinkers in the world of magic.  He’s performed at The Magic Castle, every major Las Vegas casino and elite private parties and high end corporate dos. Penn & Teller refer to his performance as one of the most subtle and diabolical in the world of magic. It’s none other than Mr Paul Vigil. Paul and I chat about his time at The Retreat, a lecture for 3 people in a Las Vegas hotel bedroom (yes, really), he shares a Johnny Thompson story, a Channing Pollock story and talks about what it means to be "fooled by a gentleman".

Today's guest is a actual real-life professor. An academic. A magician. A skeptic. A viral video creator. An author of best-selling books and proper scientific papers. It’s the one and only Professor Richard Wiseman. In this episode we talk about skepticism, viral videos, his early days in magic and books, a magic show with no performer, his appearance in a Queen video and the best hack you'll ever hear for checking your presentation software is working properly.  Here's the video he's in. Can you spot his arm? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AIlz08fZos

Here it is. Our Holiday Special. Yes, it's over 30 minutes, but you listen to it and tell me what I should have cut out? :) What you are here for, in these show notes, is the video of the race.  Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bW7rraZfFc Suck it up, George. LOOOOOOSER. Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed recording it. If I get time, I will drop the rap onto a beat.

Magician, creator, consultant, director, winner of the AMA Close up magician of the year and the man who brought the world tiny plunger, it’s Jon Armstrong. This show has a lot of insights, but one REALLY useful bit of information about making a commercial comedy magic prop your own. Worth the price of admission just for that.

This is an amazing episode. You'll learn so much about performance. How important a breath is. Why being interested is better than being interesting. Why clowns have red noses. Avner started learning his art in the 70s, in Paris, and kindly shares a great deal of what he has learned over the years.  If you enjoy the show, we'd love it if you told a magician friend or two.

Today, we have the creator of "Socks" and "Priceless", Michel Hout. Michel is a busy corporate magician and offers some amazing insights into that world in this episode. Also, the story about the creation of "Priceless" is worth the price of admission alone. Enjoy.  (There were a couple of technical issues with this week's show - some stray pops and clicks and weirdness. I fixed them as best I could - hope it doesn't interfere with your enjoyment of the show).
