[Guest post] Peculiar Curt Spotted Busking in Vancouver

The following is a guest post from an author who wishes to be known as The Magic Demon.



Peculiar Curt Spotted Busking in Vancouver This Summer

Exclusive to Canada’s Magic

One of the friendliest magicians busking this summer in Vancouver calls himself Peculiar Curt.

But Curt isn’t really all that peculiar at all.

He’s a fine magician, musician, teacher and family man who’s spending more and more time out and about again this summer busking in Vancouver.

Curt does low-key fun routines with regular cards, coins and (especially for the kids) an original specialty utilizing Pokeman cards.

Curt told this reporter the invaluable experience he’s gaining by expanding his busking chops again this summer should greatly enhance his magic repertoire which already includes performances at kids’ parties and all kinds of social events.

So far this summer Curt has been spotted busking near or around the always popular Science World on False Creek.

If you ever should see him, go up and say hi to one of the nicest magicians you will ever meet. Enjoy Curt’s set and, hey, share the wealth if you can.

For more information, check Curt’s website: www.peculiarcurt.ca

— The Magic Demon (with thanks to S & D who met Curt first!)



Thank you The Magic Demon for guest posting at Canada's Magic!

ICYMI: Eric Leclerc is Faces Magazine's 2024 Comedian of the Year

Congratulations Eric!


From the June 17th Instagram post by Eric Leclerc:

This baby just came in the mail!!! I feel honoured and appreciative to have won Faces Magazine’s comedian of the year 2024. As magicians, we always get a bad rap from comedians because of our use of props on stage. I always thought it was such a silly metric to judge one’s level of funniness. A laugh is a laugh is it not? Well who’s laughing now?! 🏆 Thanks to everyone who voted and has come to see my comedy magic show SMOKUS POCUS in the last 2 years. It’s because of you. Merci! 🔴
