A bar magician?  Pretty damn good.  I like to think he brings some good tips.

He's good.

Illusions, subby. A trick is something a whore does for money.

pretty entertaining.  i couldnt begin to explain some of those things.  didnt need the pen up the nose bit though.

wow. that was way more impressive than I thought it was going to be. I'd pay money to sit front row in his show.

He was using a false thumb tip for the salt and liquid.  It's easy to see if you know what to look for.
He was palming the foam balls, also easy to see.  For the cards, he was concealing them behind the hand, slightly bent and held by the corners between his fingers.

Subby describes him as "amateur magician", which is appropriate.  He's doing amateur tricks that anyone with an appreciation of sleight of hand would immediately spot.  These are the kind of things you would find in a kid's "My First Magic Tricks" kit.

That's a matter of opinion.

 Sorry, I wasn't trying to be a buzzkill.  It just so happens I wasn't impressed because I've seen this act many times before . . . apparently many farkers here have not, and are flummoxed, so I thought I would provide some enlightenment.

Penn Jillette refers to the things he and Teller do on stage as tricks rather than illusions.  He prefers the term.

Yeah, yeah. Sharp knees. Thanks for the input, Studman69.

Troo: Penn Jillette refers to the things he and Teller do on stage as tricks rather than illusions.


Also if you've seen them perform, they will usually do at least one illusion as-is, then show you how the trick is done because they themselves will admit many tricks aren't that hard to perform.  The ones that are hard (take many hours of practice to get right) still isn't magic, but it's very well done illusions.

After looking at it a second time, I see exactly what you described.

Surprised no one caught the "Amazing Jonathan" trick.. with the pen up the nose? he was good.. but all in all.. a little sloppy in a couple areas..

Having tried to study just a teensy bit of magic when I was a kid, I was quietly delighted when I realized how some of that was done! Really simple, but that dude is pretty quick.

why? I enjoyed not knowing exactly how he did it. I smiled and laughed when I  watched the tricks. You pretty much ended that warm feeling. That's the definition of a buzzkill.

There should be a question mark at the end of "America's Got Talent".

I met this guy in Vegas at an outside Karaoke bar. He bought my girlfriend and I a shot, and did these tricks and some more. Pretty cool dude! He's got the right angle too. Drunk people at the bar will eat that stuff up.
