Grampy's Magic Inspiring Story

Posted by Grampys Magic in General

Grampys Magic

Hello All....

I'm a GrandPa with 10 grand children, hence the name.....

I've always been fascinated by magic since I was 5 years old, when I saw my first show at a VFW hall in Kalamazoo, Mich.  Growing up I read every book I could find on the subject.  Around 10 years old or so I discovered Harry Houdini and he became my hero.  Again I read everything I could find on him and his magic.  I did my first public performance at age 12 for a senior citizens club my dad used to deliver bakery goods to.   My next performance, along with a few friends was for our 8th grade talent show at school.

Secrets To Performing Magic Tricks For Beginners

Posted by Peter in Performance , General

Peter

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

Magico

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.

PIN Number Prediction Revealed

Posted by Zuugician in Tutorial , Street Magic , Mentalism

Zuugician

Imagine knowing something that would normally be impossible to know. For example you might want to reveal someone’s surname, even though you never met them before. You might want to know what their best friend’s hamster is called. Whatever it is, this Prediction effect will allow you to do so. In this case we will reveal the PIN number of a person’s bank account.

Basic Effect
You ask to borrow a pen and pencil from the subject. You confirm with them that they have a PIN number for their bank and that there is no way you could possibly know it. You write down a 4 digit number and return them the pencil. You ask them your pin number and it matches what you have written on the paper.
