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.

Last week on Magic Tonight

Last week on Magic Tonight, we had two new guest performers, never before seen on the show. Ryan Brown is a sleight of hand manipulator, which requires countless hours of practice locked inside a room, which explains his lack of a tan. He's the winner of the "Toronto's Best Magician Contest" and also "Mississauga's Got Talent". How someone can win both is a mystery that legal scholars will continue to debate for centuries.

Zack Mirza is the star of Illusions of Grandeur* which is currently airing on CityTV. The audience had the chance to see what he could do up close and personal.

Thank you to everyone who attended our sold out shows this weekend. This week's shows are already sold out (again, thank you). We've opened up a block of new shows and tickets are now available for dates through the end of November. Readers of this blog can use the code reality for a discount when booking online.

If you didn't get a chance to see the show, take a tiny peek at what you missed:

*Which has nothing to do with our show Illusions of Grandeur from 2013. Our title made more sense but Zack and I have kissed** and made up.

**Metaphorically speaking. I don't think he's into that sort of thing. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

This week on Magic Tonight

School's back and we're back. We had shows in Toronto over the summer, but this week, Magic Tonight returns to the Franklin House in Streetsville — a wonderfully historic and genuinely haunted venue — on Thursday nights. Our first show back with Ryan Brown is already sold out. Ryan is a sleight of hand manipulator who has been recognized in recent years with the Toronto's Best Magician Award, first place in Mississauga's Got Talent (how he can be eligible for both without moving has baffled the greatest legal minds in the country) and the Len Cooper Memorial Award.

And this Sunday, at the Crimson Lounge in Toronto, we have the star of Illusions of Grandeur, the new television magic series currently airing Friday nights on CityTV, Zack Mirza. This show has a very limited number of seats remaining.

Tickets for all of our upcoming shows are available online. Readers of this blog can use the code reality for a discount on the price of tickets and dinner when purchasing online.
