Going Out With A Bang


If you have never seen me do a magic show, you have one last opportunity. On April 14th at 11:30 AM at the Adams County Christian Academy, I am doing my final magic show for their Open House.

I'm then giving or selling all the illusions, routines, and props I have collected over 37 years of stage, parlor, and close-up magic and closing this chapter of my life for good.

Last chance. It'll be fun.

Why are you giving it up...?

Nobody can pay me anymore. In this economy, everybody's broke and I can't do free shows (though this one for ACCA is) as each show costs me gas money and supplies.

That is among the saddest things I've heard regarding the economy so far. :/

But you don't have to give up completely on it? You can keep all your props in hopes that the economy will turn better. You can keep it on as a hobby. I am sure there are a few people who still want to see your magic shows.

Alas. I never got a chance to see you perform, but it always sounded cool.

Sorry it has to end, but it sounds like you had a good long run. Good luck on the final show and have fun!

You can always keep it a hobby.
Sounds like a case of charity burnout.I hope I am not reading to much into this I can understand. I wish charitable events organizes realize performance have expresses and or need to make a living. It one thing a performer or ensemble comes and says we want to help but I frown on the solicitations for a gig say we can pay you buttlook at the exposure
