I spent the last week in Portugal with two magician friends: Joshua Jay and Luis De Matos. We were in the city of Coimbra; a university down that has an annual street magic festival organised by Luis.
Luis is often referred to as the “Portuguese David Copperfield” and I would have to agree with that. He’s a slick performer (he was the star of The Magicians BBC1 series last year) and a very smart magician.
During the week we worked on a DVD project for Joshua Jay that I helped produce. Joshua is a well-known close-up magician from New York and my closest friend. We filmed his full evening show and twenty close-up tricks using Luis’ television crew. It was a lot of fun to be involved with and I look forward to seeing the finished product!
