Secrets To Performing Magic Tricks For Beginners

Posted by Peter in Performance , General


Many common magic tricks are easy to learn and only require common items such as matchboxes, cloths and coins to perform successfully. The most common tricks are playing card and coin tricks which are both a good way to practice technical and audience distraction skills.

Card tricks are one of the oldest forms of conjuring and perhaps the best introduction to learning magic tricks and performance for beginners. Whilst you can buy special card kits and find free magic tricks online, you should start out with a normal deck of playing cards and learn specific card magic techniques that don't rely on props.

Start small and practice, practice, practice

Tips on Hiring a Close Up Magician

Posted by Magico in Performance , General


The most important thing about hiring a close up magician is that they are professional. An amateur magician may be able to perform magic in certain settings and from the proper angle, but the best magicians can be completely surrounded by onlookers and still leave everyone astounded after the trick has been performed.


Part of being a professional also means that they will show up on time, be dressed smartly, make an effort to attend to every guest and handle last-minute changes with ease. Obviously, this is the kind of  magician you want to hire, so here are the tips you need to help you find such a close up magician.

Mysterious Indian Yogi Magic

Posted by ge0ffr0 in Street Magic , Performance , General


Greetings Magis

A mysterious Indian man approached me in the street and began foretelling my future.
This is of course a great way of getting someone's attention!
As he explained the good and not so good things that were to befallme he wrote something on a small piece of paper, screwed it up and then handed it to me and asked me to put in in my pocket.
As we talked further he then asked me for my mothers name, my age and my wife's age.
He was very particular about the spelling and wrote these things on a piece of paper in front of me.
He then asked me to reach into my pocket and retrieve the screwed up piece of paper.
He asked me to blow on it three times, place it against my "third eye" and pray over it.
I then unravelled the piece of paper and magically there were the 3 things listed .....

This seems to be a wonderful street trick, write something down and then psychically predict the person's response.
He "seemed" a very wise and humble yogi. He patiently explained to me the virtues of morality, vegeterianism and other secrets of a long and happy life.
As we talked and he prayed for my family he proceeded to repeat this trick, magically predicting my wife's name, my favourite colour and number.
This time I was more wary,ensuring he definitely couldn't reach into my pocket or get some other opppurtinity to swap the pieces of paper.
At no stage did I let the piece of paper go until I unravelled it.

I would love to fathom how he did this, I gave him a small donation and he went on his way, to bless the next poor dumbfounded soul

Any thoughts on how this was done......???

Crushing a coin with 2 fingers

Posted by rhmagic in Tutorial , Street Magic , Performance , General , Coin , CloseUp , Bar Tricks



Borrow a quarter from a spectator. Next place it between you thumb and first finger. In plain sight of the spectator the whole time, you start to bend the quarter. You bend it so far that the coin is folded in half.

Stage Fright

Posted by rhmagic in Performance


Stage fright is one of the most crippling disorders a magician can face. After all we have to perform in front of people or worse yet, STRANGERS.

As a person who suffers from stage fright, It took me a while to learn how to over come it. I would try every bit of advice someone told me. Of course nothing worked.

I am a people person. I can strike up conversations with just about anyone. I can act silly and let them take me or leave me. Talking to people is not a problem for me.

Cigarette magic explained

Posted by rhmagic in Street Magic , Performance , Levitation , CloseUp , Bar Tricks


The Anti-Gravity Cigarette.

A cigarette is laid on the table so that about two-thirds of it protrudes over the edge. Yet the cigarette does not fall.

There are two methods of performing this trick. The first requires a prepared cigarette. A bit of metal is hidden in one end of the cigarette, and as that end is much heavier than the other, the cigarette can easily be set so that it apparently overbalances the table edge.
