From the October 23 article "Brownstein: Did you hear the one about the Comedy Nest turning 40?" by Bill Brownstein in the Montreal Gazette:
Acer and Shuchat shone among the first wave of anglo comics in the early years of the Nest.

“I go way back to the 1920s with Bob Hope,” Acer quips. “Actually, I did my first set at the Nest in 1989 … when we didn’t have microphones and comedians talked through rolled-up paper cones. Okay, I may be misremembering that a little.”

Montreal: Jared Kopf lecture and show

From the Montreal Magic Jam:
Lecture: Wed Oct 23
Show: Sun Oct 27

Jared Kopf is one of magic’s finest artists. As a young man, he built a reputation on his flawless technique and massive repertoire of classics, executed to perfection. It didn’t hurt that he studied under master magicians Bob White and Johnny Thompson. Over the ensuing years, he’s also proven himself to be a master performer, and is considered among the cognoscenti as one of the greatest magicians of his generation.

His lectures always cover a variety of topics:sleight-of-hand card and coin magic, classical magic (Cups & Balls, Linking Rings, etc.), mentalism, and “readings” with various symbols, especially the Tarot de Marseille. The lecture’s thesis argues for a unified theory of Magic as a natural phenomenon.

Jared has done incarnations of this ever-evolving lecture for Conjuring Arts University and across North America, Europe, China, Hong Kong, and Japan, spreading the word that Magic is real—even the fake kind.

So come join us and spend some time with Jared Kopf. We’re happy to have him to lecture, a show, a workshop, as well as one special very limited intimate event that you’ll only hear about if you’re on our mailing list.

Montreal: Rebuilding Dreams with Loir Suchard

From Eventbrite:
Thu, 30 May 2019

WHAT: Rebuilding Dreams: An Evening Celebrating the Power of the Human Imagination in Fostering    Hope. Featuring World-Leading Master Mentalist Lior Suchard.

Lior Suchard is widely regarded as the world’s greatest mentalist, entertaining with his notorious acts of thought influence and startling mind-reading predictions. He has amazed audiences in more 50 countries and astonished countless celebrities on popular TV specials hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jay Leno, Larry King, Barbara Walters, and many others.

WHEN:    May 30, 2019, 7:30 p.m.

WHERE: Imperial Theatre
1430 Rue de Bleury, Montreal,

PRESENTED BY:    Chai Lifeline Canada, a national charity that provides support and care to children with life-    threatening or lifelong illness and their families.

“We see firsthand every single day what a difference a little bit of compassion and support can make in lives of families living with pediatric illness,” said Mordechai Rothman, Executive Director of Chai Lifeline Canada.

“Being sick changes everything in a child’s life and taking care of an ill child depletes a family’s energy and fortitude,” he explained. “Chai Lifeline is focused on providing concrete services and emotional support that enable patients, siblings and parents to keep from feeling alone and devastated, and find hope and joy in their lives.”

With 535 volunteers helping 400 children and 2,000 family members, Chai Lifeline provides dozens of free initiatives. Programs include counseling, volunteer support to bring an extra measure of adult attention and stability to children’s lives, tutoring for children missing extended periods of school, family retreats, sibling programs, peer and professional support, and summer camps for kids with serious illnesses that help families retain a sense of normalcy and hope while fighting even the most dire pediatric diseases.

For those who already know David, no need to say the lecture will be a real show with dozens of gags and ideas you will use for your own performances. Among the brand new tricks you will discover :
  •     Mirage : Learn how to Visually and slowly make a deck of cards vanish !
  •     Zenith : The « Card on the ceiling » effect completely revisited, safer and easier than the classic version. Finally you will get David secret version of this classic effect, a version he kept for his own performances for years. A masterpiece of close up magic !
  •     A new gimmick as powerful as «The Tool » that will allow you to perform dozen of tricks completely different. A new weapon for the close up magician who want to refresh his repertoire.

And much more ! Over 14 new effects and routines tested on real audience and ready to amaze your own spectators. David will also talk and explain how he performs in close up situation on stage for audience as large as 2.000 spectators and how to deal with this kind of situations.
