This year, magic has seen a wonderful resurgence in the public consciousness. One of the places this is most apparent on the Tonight Show, now hosted by SNL alum Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy is nearly the perfect subject for performing magic to. You can always tell exactly what he’s thinking and you know immediately when he’s genuinely surprised by something. He’s had three superb magicians featured on his show in the past month:
Dan is based in New York, with his own show The Magician at the NoMad.
is the winner of the latest season of America’s Got Talent. (Although he does happen to be Canadian… confusing!) He is also internationally recognized in the industry as a winner at FISM (essentially the magic Olympics.)
An irritatingly photogenic sleight of hand artist from Ohio, now living in New York. Josh holds a special place in my heart as the first original magic trick I ever had published in a professional journal was in his column, "Talk About Tricks” which he edited for MAGIC Magazine for a dozen years. Josh has a show in New York called Six Impossible Things which is sold out months in advance.
