Happy New Year to you! Hope you spent the last minutes of 2011 and the new minutes of 2012 in a special way. I did!
Across the world, millions of people in France and French-speaking countries watched Ning & I on a special edition of the famed TV show “Le Plus Grand Cabaret Du Monde”.
I think our performance of “360 Sawing” was captured well by the professional production crew from Magic TV and our spontaneous standing ovation was also seen! Here are some low quality screen captures from our appearance and hopefully, we will have a video online soon.
In one week, we will be staging our 9th mega illusion, “The Mind Heist”.
This is a world record attempt for reading 100 minds in 1 sitting. It has never been done in the world before and will be adjudicated by the International Brotherhood of Magicians and Singapore Book of Records! This will also be our first mega illusion ever to be streamed live over the Internet.
Be one of the 100 people by signing up here.
A couple of days after our mega illusion, we will be filming our season finale episode of “M for Magic” season 2 as well as for AXN in a special appearance for a popular TV show. At the end of the month, we fly to Kuwait for an international magic production show.
In Feburary, we kick off our “3 Sides of Magic” world lecture tour in Penang that will span most of the year covering multiple cities in Asia, US and Europe. We will be in the US for an East to West Coast lecture/ show tour. Dates are being booked as I write. We will also likely head to Europe for a multi-city lecture tour in the last quarter of the year.
In March, we are hosting a Micro Magic Convention in Singapore that will comprise of our “3 Sides of Magic” lecture, a close-up magic competition opened to all magicians in South East Asia as well as a brand new show.
There are lots more projects in the works and the first 3 months will be critical in the planning of all the gigs but you will be the first to know!
Oh, we also ended 2011 with loads of fun. Ning captured me in a little accident in a very short video!
