    Five deadly magic tricks

    From Metro (Toronto):
    Scott Hammell did the unthinkable. He asked someone to load a gun, point it at him and pull the trigger. He doesn’t have a death wish, he’s a magician and the subject of a new documentary, The Trick with the Gun, that details the planning and performing of the most dangerous illusion ever devised, the Bullet Catch.
    Fourteen magicians have died attempting it and the most famous conjurer of all time, Houdini, never even tried it. Hammell says the trick is risky but, “there are safe ways of doing things that are seemingly extremely dangerous.”

    He adds, “obviously things can go wrong and that can have a catastrophic chain reaction.”

    There is always room for error and sometimes magicians get hurt or even killed on stage.

    Hammell gave Metro an exclusive list of the five most dangerous — and potentially fatal — tricks ever performed on stage.

    Darcy Oake at London's New Year’s Day Parade

    The lucky audience in Winnipeg got to see this stunt performed!

    From the Evening Standard:
    Escapologist Darcy Oake is set to attempt the “pinnacle of his career” at the New Year’s Day Parade in London.

    Oake, 28, will be suspended with a box locked on his head filled with water. With his hands tied and on one gulp of air he will try and pick locks to escape. 
    Writing on his Facebook wall, Oake said the stunt, which he performed for the first time at the end of his 2015 tour on December 5, was "Single handedly the most dangerous thing I've ever done in my life".

    Benevolence of Magic part 3

    Dennis Schick's third annual Benevolence of Magic (in the December "Linking Ring" (v95,12)) features two Canadian projects.  From Dennis:

    The first is magician Jeff Christensen from Vancouver. Each year he and his wife and daughter produce “A Magical Evening” in honor and memory of their son, Jonah, to raise money for their Celebrate the Child Foundation, which supports numerous worthy causes.


    The other is John Kaplan, also from Vancouver, whose Fundraising Magic program raises money for organizations and communities across Canada.

    Well done Jeff and John for your hard work to help others.

    Thank you Dennis for sending this information my way!

    More "Tricks" to be had

    From Magicana:
    We've been having a wonderful week full of magic with Tricks at Soulpepper in Toronto. In fact, Sunday's matinée is now sold out.

    To accommodate the demand, we've added one more performance to the schedule on Saturday, January 2 at 8:00 PM. Tickets just went on sale, so there are some excellent seats still available so you can be right up close to the action. Don't forget, we have special discounted family packs for groups of four or more (with at least one child).

    Read more.

    Read this review from Toronto Stage:
    As a youngster, I remember my father once cautioning me to watch out for people who ask you to share a secret, used car salesmen of any kind and smooth talkers who want to show you a good card trick.

    Falling into the latter category, of course, is David Ben.

    That’s because he’s the kind of guy who could make a lot of money hanging out at Union Station mingling with stop over travelers with a little extra time on their side. He may not have anything up his sleeve but he’s definitely got something, somewhere.

    The return of Tricks, is anti-pomp and pageantry. The stripped down production relies on basic furnishings to accomplish what great all tricksters need to put on a smoking good show.

    Anne-Lovely Etienne and Adrien Fichelle interview Luc Lanagevin

    From le journal de Montréal:
    Il nous fascine. À la télévision comme sur la scène, sa magie est hypnotisante.
    L’illusionniste Luc Langevin, originaire de Québec, considère maintenant Montréal comme son chez soi. Il se rappelle d’ailleurs, comme si c’était hier, sa première fois dans la grande métropole lorsqu’il avait visité une boutique de magie. Il nous dévoile maintenant ses adresses chouchous de la ville.


    Le restaurant favori ?

    Il y en a plusieurs, mais l’un qui me vient spontanément à l’esprit est le Bistro Lustucru. Il est situé sur l’avenue du Parc. Je suis un amateur de tartares et ils en concoctent de très bons, dont les tartares au cerf ou au canard. En fait, leur spécialité est leur bar à cru. Sinon, j’aime le Geppetto, pour leurs pizzas vraiment délicieuses.

    From Web Mag TV:
    Luc Langevin a reçu l'equipe de WebmagTV dans son hotel pour nous parler de son univers et de ses différentes expériences. Il sera du 10 au 21 février 2016 au Casino de Paris.

    Searching for military paramedic Nathan

    On August 23rd at approximately 9:30pm, "Pick Pocket" James Harrison was in a bad car accident driving northbound on the 400, just past Hwy 9.  As he swerved to avoid hitting an out of place construction pylon, his tires caught the shoulder causing his black Mazda 5 to roll over.  Twice.

    James experienced the best side of humanity that day.  Several people stopped their car to offer help and make sure James was safe.  One gentleman, Nathan, is a military paramedic.  Nathan asked permission and then entered the back passenger section of the car.  He then talked James through the idea that he was going to hold his hands around James' neck to prevent possible spinal cord injuries.

    Nathan kept James company, kept him calm, and kept his neck stable until the paramedics arrived.  During this time James learned that Nathan is stationed at Base Borden, effective August 24th.  From the ambulance stretcher, James had a brief moment to shake Nathan's hand and say thank you.  And then Nathan disappeared before James could get any more information about him.

    We're very grateful that James only received minor injuries and is recovering well.

    Nathan, if this message gets to you, please contact me or contact James directly through his website (http://www.pickpocketmagic.com/).  James would very much like to give you a proper and well deserved "thank you."

    Montreal: 2017 Magic Collectors Weekend

    From Magicana:
    This is a preliminary announcement that we plan on staging the Magic Collectors Weekend May 25 to 27, 2017 in Montreal, Canada.

    This will coincide with the opening of the major exhibition of magic posters from the Allan Slaight Collection at the McCord Museum. The exhibition, for which David Ben is the guest curator, will open that very weekend.

    In addition to private tours of the exhibition, we will be working with the McCord on some additional programming and events – including some behind the scene access to elements related to the  exhibition. Given Houdini’s connection to Montreal – and, in fact, the McCord – there will certainly also be some Houdini on the bill.

    David Ben on CBC's "q"

    From the CBC:
    Three decades ago, David Ben left a career in law to pursue his passion: magic. Now he's one of the top sleight-of-hand artists in the world, performing over the years at Shaw Festival and Luminato.
    His new show, simply called Tricks, is now playing at Toronto's Soulpepper theatre. Ben talks to Shad about the surprising array of people that inspired the program — from Frank Sinatra to Glenn Gould — and how he straddles several decades with his performance.

    "The Trick with the Gun" on Superchannel

    From the Times Colonist:
    Chris Gudgeon doesn’t seem like a guy who’s into guns, and not just because he’s a peace-loving poet.

    So why did he suddenly find himself at the North Saanich Rod and Gun Club to learn the finer points of marksmanship?

    It was for the The Trick With the Gun, director Michael McNamara’s high-calibre documentary that the Victoria-based writer and producer wrote and appears in.

    In the 90-minute film premièring tonight at 9 on Superchannel, Gudgeon agrees to pull the trigger for the Bullet Catch, a notoriously dangerous illusion.

    Toronto: "Dark Holiday Magic and Mentalism"

    From the Revival Bar:
    Happy Holidays?

    Familiar holiday customs often incorporate earlier pagan traditions that have been appropriated for modern use.

    Customs that encourage little children to be good, so as to deserve their Christmas gifts from Father Christmas, often come with a dark side: the punishment you’ll receive from a monster or evil being of some sort if you aren’t good!

    Dec 27th Join Mysterion for an evening exploring characters such as Krampus, Hans Trapp, Jolakotturinn, and other Christmas creatures that snatch away children who have been bad all year. A full show of supernatural effects that will leave you wishing you’ve been extra good this year.

    Special Guests include Magician James Alan of Toronto’s weekly magic showcase Magic tonight and The Coney Island Corndogs Tricksie and Lucky.

    Be good, you’ve been warned.

    (This is a magic show and themed to Pagan and European holidays customs that may offend some beliefs).

    Darcy Oake's TV special

    From Clive Court's Facebook page: [editor's note: emphasis mine]
    CBC-TV have scheduled Darcy Oake's ITV special Edge of Reality for 9pm. on December 10. Thanks to everyone who pitched the TV network bosses last year---we have a TV magic special starring a Canadian illusionist (Is the the first since Doug Henning in the mid-70s?)*. Now the important thing is to do whatever we can to get it big ratings (you can't rely on the CBC to do a good promotional job for a magic special because they do not like magic or magicians on TV). So Canadian magicians have to make the most of this opportunity. So my advice to Canadian magicians is contact your friends in print and radio (eg. CBC morning/afternoon radio shows) to do what you can to promote the show. If it gets a poor ratings---they will have the best excuse not to run another TV magic special. This is your chance to make a difference.

    * I'm talking about the CBC-TV English Network (The French TV Network enjoys working with Canadian entertainers including magicians like Luc Langevin)
