Eugene Burger – My Favourite Magicians

Following on from my previous posts about my favourite magicians, the magic community sadly lost one of the greats earlier this year. Eugene Burger passed away in August, aged 78. While he did not reach celebrity status, Eugene was a regular performer at high-society events in his hometown of Chicago, and was hugely respected amongst […]

Lennart Green – My Favourite Magicians

Lennart Green – My Favourite Magicians

At first glance, Lennart Green may seem like an unlikely candidate for my list of favourite magicians. Don’t let his Maths-Professor-like appearance and his apparent clumsy handling of playing cards put you off. He’s widely revered amongst magicians as one of the great living card workers.

He’s racked up numerous television appearances, including “Magic Comedy Strip” and “Stuff the White Rabbit” […]

Tom Mullica – My Favourite Magicians

I first saw Tom Mullica perform on TV in the UK back in 1990 on “The Best of Magic”. Before he’d even opened his mouth, I knew there was going to be something brilliant about this guy. He just looks – and I mean this in the best possible way – a bit *weird*. In […]
