My only current weekly gig is for Clyde's of Columbia (in the MD suburbs) though I perform throughout the area. I was at the Red Rock Canyon Grill in Silver Spring for some time. I'm also talking to the Comedy Mystery Society in Gaithersburg/ Kentlands about performing there.

This is a rather sensitive subject I could write a huge amount on. Do I find Mystery and his ilk incredibly tasteless? yes. Does this mean what he does doesn't work depressingly well? no. Have I had surprising personal success in this area? yes.

Not surprisingly as a magician I know almost nothing about baseball.

What one trick (if I were to learn just one) works best with the ladies?

I prefer the trapdoor. Just don't ask about the vanishing wand.

Something cute that involves plenty of tactile contact. Many self styled magic pick up artists would use these. (and I would agree)

Cool, yeah. I'm right in that area. I'm there every Friday night as long as I don't have a conflicting performance. Just let me know in advance when you're coming by so I can say hi.

Will do. Where did you learn the skill? or is it just one of those things you did in your spare time. I knew a kid in elementary school who was really good, He amazed us all when he made his sister disappear in a class talent show.

Since Magician is in Washington D.C, do you do any shows or anything like that? I wouldn't mind seeing a magic show...haven't been to one in a very, very long time.

I've been doing it ever since I was young - 5th grade I think. I was kind of one those melodramatic youths as a young kid so that probably contributed. I'm largely self taught from books and videotapes, but I've had some help from more established magicians in the area. It's something I love and I'm quite proud of my progress in. If you add it all up and take an average I've probably put in at least an hour of practice a day for the last several years. (There was of course the requisite lull when I discovered girls, rock 'n roll etc.) You're in Annapolis right? I performed for the Annapolis New Years/ First Night thing last year and am hoping to do it again this year - it was a great gig.

See my earlier post about this at the top of this page. I don't do too many public gigs now but have some odds and ends in the works, I'll definitely keep everyone posted. Of course I will be performing at the grand opening of Farinelli's.

I cut my teeth as a close-up sleight-of hand performer (Which is what I do at the restaurant every weekend) but now I am focusing more on my stage act (which i'm beginning to get more bookings for) which has a big emphasis on mindreading and hypnotic technique. Still cards are my first love and some of my strongest material is with 52 pasteboards.

And then posts photos about those petite Asian girls incessantly in SF. Wait, no that is . . . .
