Over the years television producers have felt it acceptable to expose magicians’ secrets. Normally, here’s what happens:
1. The television show exposes the secret.
2. Magicians go crazy.
3. The press pick up on it and make a big deal about it.
Whether that happens with The Gadget Show’s recent exposure of magic, time will only tell. I’m not going to go crazy because it was all a little far fetched!
If you saw the show, let me clarify that magicians don’t need to spend £40,000 to perform a card trick. Everything performed on the show can be created using genuine sleight of hand and skill.
It’s worth stating that when you hire a professional close-up magician like myself, you can be sure that you’re hiring someone funny, with fantastic presentational skills and the ability to perform genuine sleight of hand magic. Sure; those gadgets are cool; but we really don’t require them … and I hope to have the opportunity to show you that one day!
