That was the question that a customer asked me today. He shocked me right off the bat, just by coming in on such a hot day. It was the first time he was here and was thrilled to find us. He wasn’t a kid but I could honestly say that he was my favourite audience. He considered whatever I did to be a miracle. He was so enthusiastic it was amazing.
But to get back to his question, I had a really hard time. The one I admire the most, at the risk of hurting anyone’s feelings, is Paul Gertner. Why? If you ever saw him do the Ring on Hourglass you would understand. I don’t know whether I watched his video on how he does it, or if I attended a lecture he gave on it but the thought and work that went into it is incredible.
I also attended a lecture that Eugene Burger he gave for Magie Montreal and I was so impressed by his advice and his performance, not only for magic but for any kind of public appearance.
Those two men are magicians that left a great impression on me. Who do you think is great and why?
