Labour Day Magic!

Happy Labour Day!
Labour Day is a very special time for me. I was born on Labour Day.
And this Labour Day in 2022 is again my actual birthday.
But the real magic for me was watching the Jerry Lewis Labour Day telethon on TV.
It started I 1954 and went until 2011 – with its highlight years for me being the 1970’s and 1980’s.
It was during those Golden years that all the greatest and best stars in the entertainment industry appeared live on this show, which ran for well over 20 hours!
And being an up and comer in Showbiz, well it was pure magic to see this.
In fact, many years later I got to work on the Canadian segment of this show a few times – even magically producing the show’s host Canadian skating star “Kurt Browning” one year.
However, the most magical moment for me was in 1976 when Frank Sinatra brought Dean Martin on the show to reunite with his old partner Jerry Lewis after many, many years. (If your younger – look them up).
It was live – very special, very magical – and something I will never forget.
Happy Labour Day everyone and best magical wishes for the days ahead!

Very Magical Women!!

Today on May 8th, International Women’s Day, I would like to play homage to two very special ladies.  On June 16, 1816, Mary Shelley invented Science Fiction when she wrote “Frankenstein”.

About 150 years later Lucille Ball championed a script nobody wanted, paid for the
pilot and fought the money people back enough for “Star Trek” to get made. (She also had a hand
in “Westinghouse Desilou Playhouse” which gaveRod Serling the big break he needed to get “The
Twilight Zone” produced.)

The mother of science fiction, and the godmotherof modern science fiction, thank you for helping create the stuff that dreams are made of!

A Special Magic!

Thanks so much for the special magic you shared.

“You can always tell about somebody by the way they put their hands on an animal.” -Betty White

An absolutely devoted life-long lover and advocate for animals—with a special place in her heart especially for dogs—Ms. White will most certainly be met with a lot of hugs and licks at the Rainbow Bridge.

Good Night Betty And God Bless!

LUCKY SHOT!

Finishing National Magic Week and celebrating Houdini & Halloween in a very magical way!
It’s been a busy week with 15 Halloween Magic Shows all over the place – virtual and in person.
So, what better way to enjoy a day off then with a visit to Jamie Allan’s “Illusionarium” with my daughter Jacqueline.
Great time exploring magic’s history in a hi-tech way.
Best of all she was chosen to mark the bullet for the famous bullet catching trick. Great souvenir.
As I said lucky catch!!
Happy Halloween everyone!

The Magic Castle!

Continuing with National Magic Week – I would like to pay homage to the most magical place in the world – The Magic Castle.

A private club for Magicians, as well as the clubhouse for the Academy of Magical Arts. It is in Hollywood, California and is considered “the most unusual private club in the world.”

To give you an idea in the lobby when you say the magic word the bookcases open and allow you entrance to a world of magic.  I love going there.

Even better this Halloween week features my pal Chris Mysterion, and his gorgeous partner  Steffi Kay, performing there the as the The Sentimentalists.

Now that’s one magical Halloween!
