My Summer Lair Chapter #118: When You Think Of A Magician What Do Picture In Your Head?
Maybe a top hat…a magic cane? Harry Potter? David Copperfield? David Blaine?
Jonah Babins is working to change that faulty perception. He wants to reveal to you a casual magic consumer the diversity and beauty of magic: beyond the tropes but also including the craft.
It’s not enough to just do the whole pick a card, any card bit. This is a performance…magic as a medium warrants that standard of excellence. In this interview I compare it to stand up comedy. Really it’s a discussion on craft which is not limited to magic.
And! Stay to the end as Jonah performs a magic trick which is a) amazing! and 2) something you can follow along at home as you listen. WHAT?! Now that’s magic.
