"2008 saw magician James Karp being given the nonorable position of President of The Magic Academy, showing that even his fellow magicians recognise James as a leader in the industry."
"The Magic Council of Australia, established in 1985" "We regularly hold meetings in most capital cities in Australia. Our meetings are generally secretive, as we like to keep the awe of wonder that surrounds Magic and Illusions." "The AMA's or Australian Magic Awards will be held December this year! we will also be opening up The Magic Hall Of Fame!"
Can anyone shed any light on these revelations?
(Apologies if they were already covered in MagiText)
I'm REALLY excited about the upcoming Catchpenny Club on March 30 because one of the guest acts is the rarely seen HARRY HOUDIDN'T. (You can email firstname.lastname@example.org now and reserve your tickets!)
Harry, played by Melbourne magician Adrian Kebbe, is one of the funniest corporate entertainers you'll ever see. Back in the days of 'Hey, Hey It's Saturday' he was a regular on the show and often did live tours with Daryl Somers. He even competed at FISM in Yokohama back in 1994!
I was scouring the web to find some video of Harry in action when I came across this:
Harry Houdidn't performing kids birthday parties in Sydney?
Oddly enough, the same Google search of 'Harry Houdidn't' came up with this listing at Vanish Entertainment, which represents the real Harry Houdidn't, but also has the same mobile number as the children's birthday Harry Houdidn't...
So if a client calls that number asking to book Harry Houdidn't, which one do they get?
I have no idea what's going on at that agency, but I do know that the Harry Houdidn't you'll see at The Catchpenny Club on March 30 is the real deal!
Not only that, but take a look at the back design of these 'Bicycib' playing cards. According the the blurb they are "rider backs", but as they've replaced the bikes with little cars, perhaps they should be renamed "driver backs"
"Great choice and make for fun."
