May 18, 2018

So many videos, so little time. Here’s a selection of magic-related vids we missed this week, or that didn’t warrant their own article:

I admit, there’s a tiny part of me that wants to see magic pranks go wrong, especially when they involve fake animal abuse. In this video, veteran magician, Murray SawChuck, runs into a noble security guard who won’t let his abuse of a spring-loaded skunk slide. 

Sleight of hand genius, Shin Lim, gave a 15-minute-long interview to a Toronto-based magazine with the worst audio setup in the world. I strongly suggest you soldier on through the echo-laden video, as the FISM Close-Up magic champion is full of good advice.

Here’s a cool motion trailer for The Magic Order, the new comic from Kick-Ass scribe, Mark Millar. In the comic, a dysfunctional family of magicians must come together to defend the earth from a supernatural threat. The first issue hits shelves July 13th. 

Darcy Oakes absolutely killed it on Showtime at the Apollo. The Winnipeg-born magician has been going from strength to strength since he made the finals in series 8 of Britain’s Got Talent in 2014.
