Newest Trick in the Book - July 30

A little bit of a last minute announcement. I’ve been conscripted to host The Newest Trick In The Book, a weekly show put on by the Toronto Magic Company.

The concept of the show is to provide a safe space for magical experimentation, trying and testing out new material that is still under development. (In much the same way that comedy clubs host open mic nights.) True to form, I’ll be showing off something new, and joined on stage by magicians Jeff Hinchliffe, Rob Testa, Dan Stapleton, LEO and Ajay. One of those has been performing magic since before I was born. Another one, I’ve been doing magic since before he was born. So we’re covering the entire spectrum.

This is a pay-what-you-feel-like show hosted at Toronto’s nerd-bar See-Scape (Keele & Dundas, Toronto). We have limited seating so you can reserve tickets at the link below.

Tuesday, July 30 - 8:30 PM

Last week I got to take part in The Carnival of Wonders, a variety entertainment extravaganza put on by the Toronto Magic Company. Under the direction of our Ringmaster, Jonah Babins, and his trusty tamed lion, Ben Train, we had a wonderful night and things certainly got weird.

I got to do some magic alongside Fenyxfyre, James Harrison, Dick Joiner, Aaron “Massacre” Matthews, Bella Muerta and Francis Trach. I clearly missed the memo about having to wear a red blazer, but the audience didn’t seem too upset with me.

Here are some photos from the night courtesy of David Fulde.


The Witching Hour

Last night I got to attend a special performance at See Scape put on by the Toronto Magic Company. They forewent their usual weekly performance The Newest Trick In The Book, and replaced it with The Witching Hour; the same format but featuring an all female cast.

The show did have one marked improvement over there regular format and just goes to show what happens when you let women be in charge.

A Carnival of Wonders

If you’re in Toronto next week come to the Carnival. inside the Super Wonder Gallery, the Toronto Magic Company is hosting The Carnival of Wonders. I’ll be appearing alongside cheaters, sideshow performers and men and women of mystery and ill repute.

There are two shows that night. The early show is family friendly. The late show is…. less that. In addition to the performances, there will be carnival games and a couple of surprises I’m not allowed to mention.
