Howdy folks!  I'm not new to magic. For many years I was greatly involved in some magic clubs in Ottawa, Kingston, and Peterborough. All in Ontario.  I think I went to a bazillion Magi Montreal events, some NYCAN stuff, and a few events in Alexandria Bay.  But that was years ago!

I have spent the last 20 years as a full time comedy hypnotist, performing all across Canada and even Kingston. [wink]  Although I left magic to pursue my love of putting people to sleep (I know, I sound like SOME magicians!) , I maintained many friendships: I still know a few good ones, but mostly the mediocre ones like myself. 😉 .  I've lost a few friends as well who were very impactful on my performance career and for those, I say...thank you friends, I never spent enough time with you. [frown] 

So, enough about me.

Many years of my hyp shows began with me performing mentalism (mind magic) and I slowly realized that many of my markets liked the 'variety'.  So as I begin to retire from my hyp show career I am falling back on my first love...Musical theatre!!  

Kidding!  It's magic. 😋

So that's me in a nutshell.  I was a fan of doublesided tape back before it became popular (do we still use that?), my friend Les gave me a giant Yellow Banana which became a staple of my hypnosis show, and apparently, I was good at a bunch of other magic type thingys .

Looking forward to reconnect with friends, make new ones, and see where the world of magic is now!

Cheers!
Rick Cole

Welcome, Rick! Nice intro. Yes, some still use double-sided tape. Others are rumored to make use of glue sticks and Xacto knives - We can be artsy-craftsy if it serves our purpose of fooling for fun. Glad to have you here and look forward to getting to know you better.

Mea culpa, Logan.  I've known Richard for 25 years or so ... maybe longer. 

I recommended TMF to him ... and I know he will bring a lot of experience and creativity to the table.

Ha, there were only 19 Magi Montreal Conventions.  And I think maybe a few lectures, but I get the point.  (obviously)  Really glad to hear you are doing well.
