Chris Ramsay and Xavier Caffrey in the National Post

From the April 4th article "How young magicians are learning to cast a spell on a modern audience" by Alex Wong in the National Post:
A professional magician, Caffrey immigrated from Lebanon to Canada at the age of 15. While other high-school students loitered in back alleys and caused headaches for nearby convenience-store owners, Caffrey hung out at the library, reading English books and learning the language. If he couldn’t pronounce a word on the page, he would scamper over to the nearest librarian for a quick lesson. “Once I get into something,” Caffrey says. “I have to do it all the time.”

One person who seems to have surveyed this new landscape accurately is Chris Ramsay. A practicing magician for over a decade, Ramsay started by working for magic companies, helping them create tricks that are teased over social media, then sold — at prices that range from $5 to thousands of dollars — with full explanations on how they work to other magicians for use in their acts. While managing the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for these businesses, Ramsay had an epiphany: He could use social media himself as a direct channel to a potential audience.

Chris Ramsay in the CBC news

From the CBC:
David Blaine is running into some serious competition as the most viewed street magician on YouTube with Saint-Sauveur's Chris Ramsay edging his way into top spots.

Ramsay said his love of magic started as a child and blossomed when he noticed he could make extra tips performing tricks while he worked as a bartender.

Now, he performs bigger and better tricks for millions of YouTube viewers.

It all started with a street magic video shot in 2014 with the help of a friend, much like Blaine's, but "in my own way, with my own flare, and obviously my own budget," Ramsay told CBC Montreal's Homerun.
