Steven Bridges may make sub optimal choices when it comes to supermarket salad bars, but he’s a hell of a street magician.
In this latest video he’s once again pounding the pavement of Carnaby Street, London, laying waste to any cutlery he comes across. His fork bending is smooth and fun, but he goes on to disappoint me once again by breaking out a deck of Bicycle Reds for a very cool box trick.
We don’t even use Bicycles over here, Steven!
If you’re a prominent celebrity, watch out: a magician might use your own work against you to freak you the heck out. That’s what mentalist Spidey did during his recent appearance on Showtime at the Apollo, when he decided to open with a little story about how he was inspired by host Steve Harvey’s book, Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success.
“There was a chapter about visualizing and the power of your imagination, a quote that said, ‘Your imagination is everything,'” Spidey explained. “I custom-wrote this piece based on those words.” He then proceeds to magically bend an ordinary spoon and fork with the power of the audiences’ collective imaginations. They might have gone a little overboard with the brainwaves, though, because it’s clear that no one was expecting that explosive finale.
Check out the clip in the video above, visit Spidey’s YouTube page or website for more of his spooky take on mentalism, and watch Showtime at the Apollo Thursday nights at 9/8 central on Fox, or stream it on Fox.com.
Russell Fox isn’t going to let his array of illnesses stop him from ruining a hungry radio station intern’s day. The African mentalist and illusionist has overcome epilepsy, asthma, dyslexia, ADHD and a mild form of tourettes, so he’s not about to let spoons stop him.
Decades after one of his teachers told him he would never read, write or work, Fox is a highly successful magician who performs shows around the world. To promote his upcoming appearance at The Funderland Family Festival 2018 in Cape Town, the “Magician Insane” dropped into a local radio station and proceeded to destroy all their cutlery. As one does.
Russell Fox, Magician Insane, will be performing at The Funderland Family Festival in Cape Town on April, 7th. Tickets are on sale now.
