Still getting caught up from a busy summer. Here are a few photos from The Newest Trick In The Book courtesy of David Fulde.

This was back on July 30. I was joined by Dan Stapleton, LEO, Ryan Goldin and Rob Testa. The Newest Trick In The Book is a weekly open mic put on by the Toronto Magic Company at See-Scape, a nerd-themed bar in the Junction.

Ordinarily the show is hosted by the lovely and talented Jonah Babins, but he was off on his summer holiday. The show is continuing through the fall on Tuesday nights. It’s free to attend and tickets can be reserved online.

Newest Trick In The Book - Grumpy Old Men Edition

This week, I will be guest hosting The Newest Trick In The Book. This weekly magic open-mic, put on by the Toronto Magic Company, is now in its third season. I’ll be joined by some friends: Mike Carbone, Dr. Sammy Jakobowicz, Glenn Ottaway and Wes Zaharuk. This is going to be a fun evening of magic, comedy and the unexpected. The goal of the show is to provide a safe place for magicians to experiment with new material. It can be a rare opportunity to see something which has never been seen before, or a chance to see everything go horribly wrong.

Newest Trick is free to attend, but you can reserve tickets online to guarantee yourself a seat.

 

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 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.
