Magic with To Kill A Mockingbird – First Edition

mockingbird

Being the Millionaires’ Magician has placed me into some pretty amazing situations. Like the time my client — a high-end Israeli jeweler — hired me to magically pull a $2 million diamond necklace out of thin air. Or the time I performed for a wealthy businessman in Omaha who owns the original Louisiana Purchase document, handwritten by Thomas Jefferson. He keeps it on display in a climate-controlled museum case in his basement.

Last night I was booked to perform at a private show for just eleven people, in a Madison Avenue apartment in New York City. As always, I will not reveal the names or details of any people present, out of respect for privacy. Needless to say there were several billionaires in the room.

During the show, I asked the host if he had a favorite book. He answered, “Yes, it’s To Kill A Mockingbird.” I inquired if he had that book handy. His eyes darted to the corner of the room, and I followed his gaze. There was a hardbound copy of this book on display in a special place on a side table. He said, “I have another copy in the next room, but the one over here is a first edition, first printing. It’s in mint condition, and extremely rare.”

I took a deep breath and picked up the book. This would be my first time performing magic with a book that (I later discovered) is worth $25,000.

Instead of my usual routine, in which I handle the book, I opted […]

Icing on the cake!

think-a-drink-birthday-cake

This blog post really “takes the cake” as one of the more flattering moments in my professional career.

I was invited to perform at a gorgeous English-style country home in New Jersey yesterday (video below), to celebrate my client’s 50th birthday. After the show was over, it was time to sing “Happy Birthday.” You can imagine the look of surprise on my face when I saw my magic teapot, “Think-a-Drink” decorated in icing on his cake!

Magician Jonathan Brown saw this photo of the cake, and wrote a lovely comment on Facebook: “You know, you can win awards, make a name for yourself, get on TV etc..but when a CLIENT loves your magic enough to put YOUR trick on THEIR OWN birthday cake…well I don’t know where you go from that!”

Here’s a quick video […]

Aloha! Kona Coffee is the best

In order to standardize the flavor of their coffee, large retailers like Starbucks have to over-roast their coffee beans. This ensures that the Starbucks coffee you drink in New York tastes the same as the cup you order at a Starbucks in L.A.. It also (in my opinion) results in coffee that tastes burnt.

Last month I vacationed in Hawaii, and was happy to be reacquainted with my beloved Kona coffee. In this blog post, you’ll learn some interesting facts about Kona coffee (the best in the world, according to Mark Twain!), and also a few links to where you can buy 100% Kona coffee online.

Chocolate NYC: 25 Decadent Experiences for the New York Chocoholic

Little known fact, I’m not just obsessed with magic, I’m also gaga over chocolate. And, I’ve spent years exploring the NYC chocolate scene, from obscure boutique chocolate crafters to surprisingly luscious imported-cocoas, buried unsuspectingly in the fray of products at some of the largest eateries and stores in New York.

In fact, it’s not unusual for me to slip into one of these purveyors of edible magic after a show for a quick bite of heaven […]
