Ring 41 April Meeting

I.B.M. Ring 41's next meeting will be "Packet Trick Night" on Wednesday April 24th.

"I put Nick Trost's kids though college with all the packet tricks I've bought since 1975!"
- David Swoboda

Packet Trick Night and a Tribute to Sneaky Pete

At our next meeting we will be exploring the wonderful, magical world of "packet tricks." A staple of many magicians, packet tricks have been a favorite of magicians and laymen alike. If you know the names of Emerson & West, Nick Trost, Jim Temple, Ron Frost, or Phil Goldstein then you know what I mean.

Bring your favorite Packet Trick

Brush up on your "Counts, Cuts, Moves and Subtlety" and show the membership your finest packet work.

As a special bonus, Jon Hughett and David Swoboda will show two of Sneaky Pete's favorite packet tricks. David will perform the Emerson & West classic, Color Monte, using Pete's cards from the Safe House. And Jon will show us "Larry West's" Eight Ball! Pete performed these two tricks nightly and always got great reactions.

You have your mission. Practice up for the next meeting on the 24th. If you don't have a packet trick, bring your favorite trick to perform. Or, stop out at Big Guy's and pick a new packet trick for your act!

"The collected works of Nick Trost should be in every magicians library!"
—David Swoboda

Jason Bishop "Seeing is Believing" show

“Fantastic!”

“a huge success!”

“Great show!”

—Jameel Jones

—Gorton Performing Arts Center

—Imperial Theatre

As America’s Hottest Illusionist, Jason Bishop might have a person passing through his body one moment or make goldfish appear from nowhere the next.

Bishop is an international award-winning illusionist who was the youngest person to win the Magician’s Alliance of Eastern States Stage Award and one of the youngest people to compete in the Society of American Magicians World-Class competition. Bishop’s interest in magic ran throughout his youth, truly taking shape in his mid-teens. In college Jason studied theatre and then went on the road performing at resorts and amusement parks, anywhere he could find an audience, including the street. As audiences enjoyed the show more and more he altered his magic to became larger and more impressive.

The Jason Bishop Show now tours the most dynamic illusion and magic show in the US. The show currently features exclusive large illusions, award winning sleight of hand and “close-up” magic that is captured live and projected onto LCD screens for the audience to have a clear view of every detail. Bishop is currently the only illusionist in the U.S. to tour with the rare Double Levitation, Plasma illusion and Op-Art. His performance abilities have led him from New Mexico to Maine and Florida to New York, as well as every state in-between.

Jason has entertained celebrities like Chris Penn and Bam Margera, who after seeing a performance said, “Jason Bishop is the best magician I’ve ever seen.” Bishop’s combination of modern costuming and music, fast paced illusions, sleight of hand and audience participation has landed him in several notable venues, including Norwegian Cruise lines, Caroline’s on Broadway and the Tropicana Hotel in Atlantic City. More recently Jason been featured in various Performing Arts Centers and theaters throughout the United States.

Glenn Morphew Lecture at Big Guy's Magic

Glen Morphew to lecture on March 30th. at 2pm

We will be hosting a lecture by Glenn Morphew at Big Guy's Magic Shop on Saturday March 30th, starting at 2:00pm. Tickets are $20.00. Glenn's Unconventional Lecture promises to be a great time, and let's face it, when have you ever been to a magic lecture with a guarantee? So we hope to see you at the shop in Pewaukee for another fine lecture in our continuing series.

A quick word from Glenn...


Hi everyone,

Just to be clear…

I’ve never won FISM, or any other magic contest for that matter. I’ve never appeared on radio or TV. I’ve never consulted for David Copperfield, David Blaine or Criss Angel. I haven’t accomplished what most guys on the lecture circuit have, so, I’ll do something none of them do.

I’ll Guarantee my lecture! Here it is plain and simple. If at the end of my lecture you don’t agree it was worth more than the time and money you spent to attend, I’ll gladly refund your money. Fair enough? I guess I’m what you’d call an underground magician, so, the odds are you’ve never heard of me. I’ve only attended one magic convention in my life. So, I’m not exactly a household name… even in magician’s households. However, I have loved and been a student of magic for the last 40 years. I primarily perform at trade shows, private parties and corporate events.

Here are a few things to my credit.

  • In January 2004, Genii Magazine published my version of the Rub-a-dub Vanish, called “The Rub-a-Dub Deluxe.”
  • In August of 2009 I released the video download of The Rub-a-dub Deluxe with Vanishing Inc.
  • In October of 2010 I released The Morphew One Hand Top Palm with Vanishing Inc.
  • Bob Sheets and I released ”Bob’s 3 Shell Boot Camp” together in September of 2010.
  • Within the last month I was contacted by Richard Sanders to be a part of his upcoming DVD project “Jump” for my work on his Mr. Stickman plot he originally released in 2001.
  • Both of my Vanishing Inc downloads are rated 5 stars.
  • Bob’s 3 Shell Boot Camp was rated a perfect 10 by Shane at On line Visions.

Sean Masterson Lecture at Ring 41

I.B.M. Ring 41 will host a lecture by Sean Masterson

"Masterson’s sleight-of-hand tricks with tales to boot are spellbinding"
- The Chicago Tribune

"Trial and Error - making magic one step at a time!"

I plan to reveal my pet secrets from my stage show "Magic Matinee" (now playing at Theater Wit) and explain the trials and the errors that I experienced to get them to performance level. It will be all stage effects including visual appearances, color changes and mentalism. The routines all use simple props procured at a hobby shop or Target. I will teach all the ins and outs of these routines that I use everywhere: libraries, schools, living rooms, picnics, classrooms, and theaters.

"All about Sean Masterson"

Sean received a deck of Marshall Brodien's T.V. Magic Cards on his 7th birthday. Since then he has performed hundreds of shows for theatres, corporate functions, family events and for 7 year old birthday parties where he delights in inspiring future magicians! His performances have always reflected his dual interest in magic and theater leading him to study acting at Illinois State University. While there he picked up a 2nd major in French which explains his appearances at Festimagic in Paris and The International Theater Festival of Grenoble. Sean has performed his family magic show Vaudeville Magic in numerous Chicago area theatres including The Mayne Stage, The Music Box Theatre, The Actor's Gym and The Acorn Theater. His close-up magic has been seen at many corporate and social events including Abbott Laboratories , The Chicago Architecture Foundation, Copia Capitol and The Driehaus Museum.
