    Free Voodini show on Facebook Live, New Year's Day at 4pm (UK time)

    Just a quick email to let you know that I will be performing an all-new one man show on Facebook Live, New Year's Day, at 4pm UK time - which is 11am East Coast USA (other time zones are available - Google is your friend!) If you can't watch live, the video of the performance will be on my personal Facebook page shortly after the show ends. It's totally free to watch, all you have to be is friends with me on Facebook and check out my page at showtime!

    If you're not friends with me on Facebook, search Paul Voodini and you'll soon find me!

    Hope to see you on New Year's Day!

    All the best for the new year!
    Paul Voodini

Greg Wilson Freebie!

Greg Wilson, as in son of THE Mark Wilson, is doing a free show as a thank you for all the kindness and thoughtful participation with his many projects - also a fun way to start the New Year!

It's on Zoom, starts at 5.00pm East Coast time (work out for yourselves how late that is!) and doors open at 4.30pm. There's a limit of 500 participants so get in early.

Greg goes on to say This is a beta test of my new virtual magic studio, lets share some fun magic stress free - new year's weekend Sunday
"greg wilson's magic-togo free show!" That means, free for all so please have mercy if something unexpected happens technically. Those gremlins sneak into the system sometimes. I'm trying out a bunch of new things for me, and I have some incredible magic to explore with you! I've done private party virtual shows, but never for a large audience of over 25 people. So I thought it would be fun to share what I’m working on with my good friends that have been so nice to me and my family. I increased my zoom limit to 500, although I’d be honoured to just have over 25! We will open the lobby about 30 min early for gallery pre-show, "first come - first serve"

But seriously, this is really short notice.

This show is designed for you to experience some magic in your own hands. That means you need a few items to participate with the interactive fun. Regular stuff you might have around the house...

1) PLAYING CARDS (does not need to be a complete deck, just have any 9 cards. If you don't have cards, it's okay... you can relax and watch the magic!)
2) 2 PLASTIC DRINKING STRAWS (so we can bend them together, this is a test to see if it works online. it's difficult to do)
3) 2 Cocktail style/size PAPER NAPKINS (single ply is best... we will tear them, so if they are too thick it might be difficult. Paper towels work, if that's what you have.
4) A COIN (The coin can be any denomination... I use a large coin, even a poker chip is fine.)
5) A GOOD, FUN ATTITUDE (Let's play for a bit, and not worry about Monday. The new year will pass by quickly enough, so this is a great time to relax and do some magic together!)

It was a good show but, in my case, the sound was muffled and the pictures were not the best - at times it was like a series of stlls projected at slow speed so much of the contents was missing. Looking at the Chat comments, others had excellent reception so it might have been local conditions this end at fault. Other zoom shows from overseas such as Masters of Magic from Italy, Piff the Magic Dragon and Justin Willman, both from the US, have been crystal clear.

    David Copperfield - headline interview for The Magic Circle Unlocked celebrating the centenary of the first public performance of the art’s most iconic illusion - Sawing a Woman in Half. On Sunday January 17th The Magic Circle will host the free online event on the anniversary of the day in 1921 that PT Selbit stunned the entertainment world with an illusion that has fascinated audiences ever since. The event will be open to all.

    Debbie McGee, Paul Daniels’ partner on stage and in life, will speak of her experience as the woman who found herself dismembered on numerous occasions. As Noel Britten, the president of The Magic Circle, said this week: “Debbie has been sliced, diced, cremated, crushed, divided and decapitated more than most, so has a great story to tell.” The evening will chart the invention, history and development of this effect with magicians, magical historians and social commentators giving their take on the twists, turns and variations that have been seen over the years.

    It has been the cause of numerous feuds, deceptions and downfalls over the years. Would PT Selbit, sawing through a seemingly simple wooden box have envisaged Copperfield sawing himself in half in full view on a Las Vegas stage with a massive circular saw? Magician Simon Drake and historian Mike Caveney among others will give their perspective. The event will be streamed on The Magic Circle Unlocked Facebook page (open to all) at 6pm GMT on Sunday, 17th January.

From Stuart MacDonald

I'm doing something unorthodox as I prepare for FISM N. America. I'm
opening up my "Stu"dio for anyone to watch a Live streaming rehearsal
for free. Since I have no live gigs between now and competition I'm
opening the doors to let anyone watch for free. I will only Broadcast
for 15 minutes and from there if anyone wants to offer a critique or
better still tell me if the story I'm relating makes sense. In other
words if something about the act bothers you tell me.

Most magicians think this is a bad idea opening the doors to other
competitors to see your process...I think they are wrong. You only
improve by putting yourself out there. If I had any shows....I'd learn
quite a bit in a short time but Covid has stopped all those bookings. So
if you have free time join in on the fun. All times are Detroit MI time

I see that these guys are now selling these public domain books. Is that kosher?
