I just ordered a few new coin magic tricks from good 'ol Ellusionist.com
I'm looking forward to their arrival and I'll be sure to update the product review here. Here were two of the coin effects that will be added shortly to my close-up arsenal.
SLAM - Coin Merge
SLAM is a coin merge illusion that looks like one step up from the Karate Coin. You borrow two coins and slam them together. The two coins are fused together and can be handed out immediately for examination. I'm always looking for the off beat coin magic trick that is different from the classic coins across, 3 Fly or simple coin vanishes. Check out the video demonstration of SLAM
Silver Dream by Justin Miller
I'm a fan of coin flourishes that vanish and reappear. They all stem from some inner child having coins plucked behind the ear. I liked the presentation of this routine and the independent vanishes look good. Ofcourse for walk-around magic, my go to trick still remains Ron Bauer's Gadabout Coins Revisited, but I'm looking forward to working with the Silver Dream DVD
I'll be sure to update the post with my comments once they arrive in the mail!

- The Other Magician On BGT Week 2
Jeffrey Drayton is kind of a magician, kind of a ventriloquist… and kind of a nut. Simon may have X’ed him, but he was clearly laughing at the act. He is not getting the attention that Jamie Raven, the magician at the center of the recent BGT dustup, is but I would watch more of [...]
- Magic and Controversy On BGT, Smooshing, Friars And More [Magic Bulletin]
Today’s lead off video is the Britain’s Got Talent audition of magician Jamie Raven, who gathered quite a bit of attention for impressing magic-hater Simon Cowell (see Daily Mail coverage). BGT was riding high this week after some of its highest ratings in years (TellyMix and Metro coverage). There has been a bit of negative [...]
- As Seen on TV, Performed by UK’s TV Street Magician Troy.
SPONSORED POST “It’s a great, it’s visual and its fun” – Troy “The visuals on Dans effect are amazing. Slick, organic and magical. What more could you ask for?” – Peter Nardi “Looks like a really cool piece of impromptu street style magic” – Wayne Fox “THRU is killer! It is so organic and it [...]
- A Little Something Different To End Video Friday
LJ Clare recently posted this on her YouTube page under the title The Best Thing I Learned From A New Zealand Street Magician. It looks like the performer in question is more of a circus performer, but that is not really the point. The point is Ms. Clare’s reaction and thoughts to his busking. She [...]
- Classic Street Magic With Matthew Noah
If you talk street magic, you have to mention the cups and balls. It is the undisputed king of street magic effects, if for no other reason than it has been around pretty much since streets were invented! This version is from Matthew Noah and one of the reasons I personally like this performance is [...]
- Hezi Dean Street Magic
Hezi Dean recently made headlines with his levitation over the streets of Tel Aviv. He is back with this just posted and slickly produced video of street magic. It is not in English, but it is not hard to follow.
- Andrew Kelly Takes It To The Streets
Video Friday kicks off with a little street magic in Hollywood from Andrew Kelly. It was posted almost exactly a year ago… it was probably from around the time of his appearance on Ellen. That video, by the way, was recently re-posted on the Ellen YouTube page.
- That Other Bargatze Fellow
Since we brought you news of Nate Bargatze’s upcoming Comedy Central special earlier today, it only seems fair to bring you a little of his father Stephen’s magic. It’s silly, it’s a few years old and it has Dick Butkus. How could it get any better? You can check out more of Stephen at MagicOfStephen.com.
