The Magician's Forum LIVE TV show and Podcast #1 w/ Magician Mike Powers & Tony Clark.




The Magician’s Forum LIVE is the brain child of Rudy Tinoco (TheMagiciansForum.com) and Will Roberts (professional actor/magician) who have combined forces to bring the magic community a weekly show that will feature some of the best magicians from around the world. Our guests will talk about their latest projects, share their philosophy on magic, offer us performance tips, and yes…they’ll often teach us a trick or two! 

One of the most unique aspects of the Magician’s Forum LIVE is that our viewers are able to carry on the discussions that take place on the show by heading over to “The Show” section of TheMagiciansForum.com, where they can share their comments, observations, and insights.

This weeks guests: 

Mike Powers

[11418a-5669bc8b1a255-2-300x270]

This was followed by Top Secret Stuff in 1990 and Power Plays in 2006. Power Plays was voted “Book of the Year” on the Magic Café and runner up “Book of the Year” in the Magic Industry Awards. Mike’s newest book, TESSERACT (2019), has just been released.

Mike’s magic has also appeared in every major magic publication and in the books of Paul Harris and others. He now writes a monthly column for the Linking Ring magazine. Mike has also released bestselling items such as Diminishing Returns, Holey Terror and The PM Principle.  Mike has performed for many years as a close-up magician with much experience in restaurant work.

The Magic Doula: Tony Clark - Master Magician

[o-2-200x300]

WHO IS Tony Clark? Tony Clark was born and raised in Stamford, Ct. His career in the world of entertainment began at the early age of six. By the age of eighteen, Clark already received national notoriety for his many awards and accomplishments as a young magician. Tony had the honor of studying magic with the Legendary Tony Slydini for more than two years. After winning the World Class Stage Contest for the Society of American Magicians in 1988 Tony began traveling the world performing. In 1994, he was nominated by the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood for Stage Magician of the Year.

In 1995 Tony was given the Milbourne Christopher Award for Best Young Magician. In 1996 his critically acclaimed revue show Phantasy which he produced and starred in, made Lake Tahoe entertainment history for being the first show to ever run four years straight! In 1998 the Lake Tahoe Boys & Girls club surprised Tony by presenting him with the Volunteer of the Year Award for his work with underprivileged kids in the community. Then in 2000 Clark won the World Magic Award for “Best Classical Magic Act” which aired on CBS TV. You may have also seen Tony on NBC’s World Most Dangerous Magic, several TV episodes of “Masters of Illusion” and a guest appearance on ABC’s “Bachelorette” and TV Land’s “The Soul Man” with Cedric the Entertainer just to name a few.

That was a great watch. The segment I saw earlier was almost like a teaser for the show. 

Thank you again for producing and letting us hobbyists learn a little more from you pros.

Hi guys,

I mentioned in The Magician's Forum LIVE broadcast that I would post a PDF of instructions for the routine I showed - "New Jazz." I just extracted the pages from TESSERACT (the new book). Here's a link to the PDF:

NEW JAZZ

Enjoy!

Folks,
I've had the chance to look at a couple of effects that Mike has published in his new book.  He won't say it, but I will:  this is a book you MUST own.  His stuff is powerful, and well within the range of most of us on this board.  I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Plus, Mike's a great guy, and it's always good to see this kind of stuff come out from friends.

WOW!!  Almost 1300 views in less than a day...…..fantastic job guys. Special thanks to Rudy for putting this together.

At about the half way point I was getting concerned about exposure...……..which you somehow sensed that I was going to have those concerns and addressed the topic as I was thinking of it.  Psychic??  

Looking forward to the next installment!

PS: Thanks to Mike too, for agreeing to do this on such short notice and for giving us a nice demo!

Congratulations for the show! Very well done. That's all I can say and there is to say.

And oh, the previous book from Mike Powers (Power Plays) was the best book of the year.
His new book (Tesseract) could well be a second (successful) bull's-eye for this nomination !

Good Job I really enjoyed this. Hope to see more. Glad  to see Mike Powers his book looks good have to get that one. Was hoping to see him live at MAWNY convention but my health will not let me make it . Was hoping to make a convention haven't been to one since the 80's.That's why this video is so cool just like a mini -convention
Thanks  Will and Rudy.

What a great idea/thing to do. Makes me think about a while back when Rudy was asking about ways to increase members I realize now I was thinking checkers and Rudy was talking chess.

Just finished watching the first episode, well done to hosts Will and Rudy. The guests Mike Powers and Tony Clark were both excellent. I liked the format and easy laid back pace and am looking forward to watching the 2nd episode and more to come. Mike thanks for sharing New Jazz.[thumb]
