Here's another chat recovered from the Magic Newswire podcast archive: Paul Vigil has often been referred to as "the best close-up magician in Las Vegas". He's a free thinker and an explorer of the mind of both the performer and the spectator. Above all else he's a man who loves the art of magic. With an intensity that engages the most cynical of audiences, Paul has become a "Must see!" in a city known for it's ruthlessness towards performers. "I'm here to be the best--not only at what I do, but at what can be done--period. I want my audience to experience something they've never experienced ever before. I want them to feel something they've never felt before. I want my audiences to believe something they've never believed before; until they walk away from my show." I our interview we explore why magic is so important to him and what secret project he's working on in Las Vegas.
In the Fall of 2008, I was joined on the Magic Newswire's "Spirit of Magic" podcast by Joshua Jay who appeared on the cover of the November issue of Magic Magazine. Josh talks about the differences between publishing his first book at the age of seventeen and the release of his new book "Magic : The Complete Course." In addition, Jay discusses his ideas with regard to the creation of original magic and the ways in which a magician can impact the way the spectator views the performance.
In the article, Harry was quoted saying: "Everyone's life would be improved if they do could one great magic trick," said Anderson, winding up. "And tell one great joke, play one tune on the piano and do one great origami fold."
