Interested in the history of entertainment? Specifically, theatrical magic history! I love speaking about magic history and have presented lectures for magic groups, history groups and radio and tv.
I've been a guest speaker on a number of radio shows talking about magic, magic history and most often HOUDINI!
In 2015, I traveled to Leland Michigan to present a lecture on a turn of the century magician named Edward Maro. As it turned out, Maro had once lived in Leland, and the building where the lecture took place was named after him. The program was a huge hit!
In 2016, I was asked to speak at The Yankee Gathering, a magic history conference in the New England area. They had heard about my Maro lecture, and asked if I could repeat it there. Because my earlier talk was for an audience of lay people (non magic folk) I revamped the talk for the magic history group to have a lot more historical content. Once again, it was very well received!
Not every lecture includes magic tricks, but frankly, most do. Look over my blog and you'll see I've
Oh, in case you were not aware, I'm quite enthusiastic about Magic History! When it comes to Houdini, I'm even MORE enthusiastic. So I'm confident if you contact me to lecture for your group, you'll be getting a great lecture, filled with fun facts, great stories, maybe a bit of drama, a fair amount of humor and an all around enjoyable time!!! Just remember, if you want to hear about magic history, contact me, The Magic Detective!
