Michael Close Interview

We’re getting ready for the new season and our first lecture out of the gate is Michael Close. Since we last saw Michael lecture, five years ago, he has gone on to produce a line of remarkable electronic publications, including the massive two volume set The Paradigm Shift. He is also the consultant on Penn & Teller: Fool Us. 

Last year, Michael was interviewed by our very own Jonah Babins for the Discourse in Magic podcast. If you want to learn more about his work and career, it’s a great resource.

Michael’s lecture is coming up on September 23, 2019. The lecture is free for members to attend ($25 for guests). You can skip the line and renew your membership online now. 

Tricks In The Six – August 31

The appropriately named Toronto Magic Company is putting on a show and you’re invited. Unsurprisingly it is a magic show, taking place in Toronto. So if you prefer straightforward advertising to ironic and irritating blog posts, you should go!

A Secret Magic Party

Last week, a super secret organization hosted a super secret magic show then decided to blab about it because magicians are terrible at keeping secrets.

The freshly minted Toronto Magic Company helmed by Jonah Babins and Ben Train, hosted an invitation only launch party with a massive lineup, including two past presidents of the club. Here are some photos of the event from Eli Green.
