Happy Halloween

Magicians are not generally very scary people. We're primarily entertainers. But sometimes, in order to be dramatic, we need to court danger and sometimes just be a little weird. So for Halloween this year, I took a look through our archives and assembled this collection of the magicians on Magic Tonight getting dressed up or just generally being strange and creepy. Enjoy!

Magic Tonight runs weekly at the Crimson Lounge in downtown Toronto, Readers of this blog can use the code reality fir a discount on the price of tickets and dinner when purchasing online.

Summer @ The Cage

Last night, we ended the summer season of Magic@theCage with a fantastic sold out show. Of course, we're not going anywhere. We'll be back every Sunday this fall with a new and exciting show every week. Coming up in September, we have Jason Palter, Chris Mayhew, Paul Pacific and new performers Garnett Schmidt and Gary Benesco. I'll also be doing my (older) one-man show, Lies, Damn Lies & Magic Tricks on Sept 14. Tickets are available on the site.

I went back through the summer shows and picked out some of my favourite photos, including some of the goofier ones I wouldn't want to use for promotional purposes. There are way more to be found if you visit us on Facebook.

Magic@theCage Continues

I went back and checked and last night marked our twentieth show at The Cage 292 in The Crimson Lounge. It's been a wonderful time and we have no plans of stopping any time soon. But I went back and looked through the photos since we started the show and picked out my favourites. Join us every Tuesday and Sunday night for more great Magic@theCage....


Winchester Retrospective

We recently had to pack up our show, Magic at The Winchester Stage and Bar and switch to a new location. To my incredible relief, the transition was seamless (with tremendous thanks to the staff at The Cage for making it possible to pull that off)! Since we moved over, many people have contacted me to let me know how much they enjoyed the Winchester and our events there, so I put together a tiny retrospective. Really, it's just my favourite photos from the archive I've been keeping, but I actually got to counting, and we did thirty events there in various formats over the past fourteen months. So thank you to everyone that came out to support us there and I hope we'll continue to see you going forward.

The photos come from various people (including members of the audience) and are of varying quality. Enjoy!

We are continuing to perform every Sunday night at The Crimson Lounge inside of The Cage 292 (map). Information and tickets are available at

The next Abracadabaret

Winchester Logo This Sunday, I'll be hosting the next Abracadabaret at the Winchester in Cabbagetown. I'm particularly excited for this show because it features one of Canada's most unique talents: Paul Wildbaum.

Paul blends magic with mime, movement and comedy to produce an act unlike anything you've ever seen before.

We also have Shawn DeSouza-Coelho. Shawn has written some terrific shows including Oh Ryan! and my favourite, Magic and Lollipops.
