Ottawa and Toronto: Wes Barker

If you get the chance, go see Wes Barker, recently awarded the honour of "Variety Act of 2017." 

At the end of the month, you can catch Wes at 'Magic Monday' in Ottawa.  Mid-November he'll be in Toronto (info at bottom of the post).

Regular reader and guest poster, The Magic Demon, has also let me know that Wes was recently featured on the podcast "What's So Funny?"  (The link can be found at CoopRadio.org, Sunday night at 11pm.)  As an aside, I've also been informed that Sunday Oct 29th at 11pm to midnight Pacific Time, CFRO  100.5 FM Vancouver will feature an hour long live interview with  Shawn Farquhar.

A quick reminder that Wes will be in Burnaby this weekend as part of "M.


From the Magic Monday Facebook event:
Magic Monday is thrilled to present two amazing, world-reknowned performers!
All the way from Vancouver, the man who fooled Penn & Teller, the incredible Wes Barker! Joining him on stage from Toronto, the extraordinary European clown and mime stylings of Kate Mior! Special Guest host this month is Steve the Magic Reindeer!

 Don't miss this one of a kind showcase, and like last month this show is certain to be a sell out! So get your tickets now.

Let me carry you

How would you react if a total stranger came up to you and asked if they could carry you?

I can only imagine the looks Wes Barker got while making his YouTube video "Carrying People Around The World."  From YouTube:
This video took me 2 years to complete. It means a great deal to me. I hope it can add a little something to your day.

In an attempt to set a world record I started carrying random people all over the globe. I have no agenda for this video. My only goal is to spread and share inspirations. However random or strange they may seem.

Vancouver: Magic and Music at the Rio Theatre

From the Langley Times:
“Until a few months ago, the only salmon I cared about was the one I put on my barbecue,” confesses magician Wes Barker.


“Does that make me a bad person?”


On Saturday, May 5, the Langley native is going to try to atone for his sins by performing in an evening of Magic and Music at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver in order to raise money for TENUK (www.tenuk.org) a non-profit organization dedicated to saving salmon in B.C. waters.
