    I volunteer in a youth club and we were trying to think of activities the kids would enjoy having a go at . So has anyone been into Magicians/Magic as a hobbie? I met a bloke at a wedding recently whose dayjob is a bank manager, but as he'd loved performing magic since he was like 5, he did weddings for spare dosh going around tables entertaining people in between meals with close up magic. He enjoys doing it and gets an extra few bob a month = win for him.

    If however your just a fan, I always remember seeing David Blaine's magic special for the first time and thinking who on earth is that. He had the proper wow factor. Derren Brown too with the Roulette trick (how the * did he do that?) and 'Breaking The Magicians Code' with Valentino

    So what are your favourite tricks/magians/types of Magic? e.g. close up (David Blaine) psychological (Derren Brown)

    If you have videos of mad sleights of hand/card tricks/illusions post here and maybe we can figure out how they are done :)

    Perhaps we have a Hoop who is a member of The Magic Circle? :fear: The admission test is solid!:nonono::eek1::drag:

    It looks * hard though, type of thing I wish I'dve got into when I was younger.:50:

    Derren Browns nearly did, although i reckon that was for dramatic effect.

    Tommy Cooper was awesome at this.

    I always hated magic even as a kid,well after I found it it wasn't really magic and just an illusion.
    Bring in a hypnotist put them under and wake them up an hour later telling them they have just watched the best show ever.

    Derren Brown's early stuff is funny as *. He is honest enough to tell you it's all done through misdirection, psychology and a strong personality.

    The skits he done where he would literally strip people of their watches, wallets, ties, belts etc is absolutely hilarious.

    Always wanted to see him live, like you said I like the way he's honest and just being like 'I'm just acting clever' where as Paul McKenna wont get off his perch at all.

    Derren Brown is amazing. The one he made the * think it was a zombie apocalypse was * unreal. Most of his stuff is, to be fair.
