Hand Cut Stripper Decks - Custom made in the UK. From the makers: The ‘Stripper deck’ or ‘Tapered deck’ is one of the most versatile and easiest to use gimmicked decks available. Apparent miracles can be performed that credit the performer with amazing sleight of hand skills. The gimmicked deck allows the performer to locate any required card(s) with ease, even after being shuffled by a spectator.

The problem with commercially produced Stripper decks are the cuts! The tapers on these decks are very deep. Spectators cannot get close to or handle the deck, without instantly detecting its gimmicking! The answer to this problem started life as an underground secret, used by professional card cheats: ‘Hand Cut Stripper Decks.’

 

(Professional magician David Diamond, who is producing these decks, kindly sent me through a sample last week and they really are excellent. Just perfect. Visit www.handcut-stripperdecks.co.uk for more info and to order. DT). 14.7.18

Derren Brown: Miracles for Sale is being repeated on Sunday 22nd July. Innovative entertainer Derren Brown returns to Channel 4 in a unique TV experiment that lifts the lid on faith healing. Derren goes undercover to investigate the reality behind the faith healing phenomenon in America and the belief in faith-inspiring miraculous recoveries. With the cameras in hot pursuit, Derren faces his toughest project yet, going in search of an unsuspecting member of the British public prepared to adopt the guise of a pastor and miracle worker. His chosen one then has six months to learn the trade and flourish across the pond as a convincing pastor. The final phase of the volunteer's extraordinary challenge sees them attempt to perform faith healing miracles live in Texas, but will Derren's new recruit be accepted as a faith healer or cast away as fake healer? Is the belief in divine intervention really justified, or will Derren expose the industry as one giant hoax? See TV Magic. 14.7.18

The Mark Leveridge July Podcast. The free monthly 30 minute podcast is an interesting mix of opinion, information and advice from someone who has been a professional magician for 37 years. Mark chats with you about a range of varied topics on July's edition: Richy Roy suggests that most of us are charging far too little for our shows and Mark discusses whether he is right or not. There is a story which proves that no matter how long you have been in the magic business, there can still be things which happen to you which have never happened before. "Strolling magic is not an art, it's a service" says Paul Brook - but is he correct? There is news of a new MLM release that is a terrific, practical version of a classic plot. The mobile phone has changed the way spectators want to experience our magic. Why do lay people still fall back on cliched explanations for the magic that we do? You can access this podcast and any of the previous 66 episodes at www.markleveridge.co.uk/podcast.php, or alternatively you can link to www.markleveridge.podbean.com from where you can also sign up as a follower and automatically receive each new edition as soon as it is ready on the 1st of every month. 7.7.18

I Was Philip Larkin's Magician. From the producers: Andrew McGibbon talks to Professor Edwin Dawes, biochemist and beloved magician to Philip Larkin. Edwin Alfred Dawes arrived at the University of Hull to establish its Biochemistry department in 1963. There he met Larkin, the poet and university librarian. They became good friends and Edwin became chairman of the library committee, working under Larkin. But Edwin had a parallel professional interest in magic and conjuring, and Larkin was spellbound with Edwin's sleights of hand and magic skills.

Edwin wrote many notable books on biochemistry and continues with his magic, having been awarded the Gold Medal from the Magic Circle for "exemplary service to the Society or exceptional magical ability or both". He is only the ninth recipient of this award since 1926. As well as library and magic commitments, Edwin's biochemistry department at Hull University took the lead in researching bioplastics in the early 1970s, which led to the commercialisation of Biopol, a biodegradable plastic polymer chain that can be used to make disposable plastic items, a discovery later sidelined but now the subject of renewed interest. Written and presented by Andrew McGibbon. Available on iPlayer.

Magic Lecturer? You may be missing out... A MagicWeek reader emailed on Tuesday: "This is not an actual news item, more of a request in response to your reminder this week to look at your lecturers page. Do you think you could write an article requesting UK based lecturers to advertise themselves on your page, or encourage magicians who have a lecture to write a piece for your main page saying they have a new lecture & give details enabling us to contact them directly to book them, or even asking lecturers to directly email the magic clubs listed on your site?

 

One of the clubs I attend has booked at least 10 people who advertise on your lecturer’s page; 9 current, & at least one who is no longer listed. I am not saying everyone was booked purely on MagicWeek’s lecture page, but many of them were. We have now exhausted the current MagicWeek lecturers list (as there are a few lecturers listed we are not interested in booking)!


In summary we want to support UK based magic/magicians, but we need them to help us do this, and MagicWeek could be the perfect platform. I am aware of the 'lecture tour' offers we receive, sometimes these are great, but these are time limited so often even if there is someone we like we can't book them, when they advertise with you this is not an obstacle! I can't guarantee every new magician to advertise the club I go to would book, but at least I could propose the ones that look good!"
