I have information that my friend, Ricky McCleod from Scotland (aka Tricky Ricky), will be the lecturer on Saturday afternoon at the Blackpool Convention 2007. This was the slot I did this year. I understand he is excellent! I shall be going over there, myself, in 2007, so look forward to it! His website is: http://www.trickyricky.com

Oh darn, I was hoping you were talking about the other Tricky Ricky. I might consider flying to England to see the Canadian Tricky Ricky lecture.

I'm disappointed, too. I would love to see Richard Lyn (Tricky Ricky) in action. He probably will never lecture, because there would just be too many disappointed kids in Toronto.

Roger, is Ricky related to the infamous Ronnie? Smile

I know I would pay big money to see Richard Lyn lecture. Unfortunately, he is probably too busy making money and entertaining people to want to talk to a room full of magicians. Smile We are so incredibly lucky that he posts here. I know I always get fantastic information from his posts.

Best,

Hello Dan,

If you are talking about the famous Svengali pitchman from north of Hadrian's Wall, they could well be related. Mind you, I had heard that he left the Scottish Highlands years ago for the new world, where he was planning on opening a Haggis farm in one of the last remaining strongholds of the British Empire. But, I could be thinking of someone else.

Tricky Ricky McCleod was a finalist in the UK Magician of the year, and I have heard he is very good. However, I have also heard wonderful things about our own Café member Richard Lynn.

I know 4 people that call themselves "Tricky Ricky".
Nothing of the same will bring any change, take action today!
Just taking a step, is a step in the right direction because when you stop working, your dream dies.

Plus, he really doesn't give away too many, if any, of his routines (apart from the silk caddy routine in Genii.)

Harv,
You are Canadian, and probably know more about Richard than I do, but what would interest me the most would be his style, and not his substance.

That would be an interesting lecture...two hours of style and no substance. When was the last time you were at a lecture where the visiting magician didn't share his (or her) knowledge about performing AND some tricks from their repertoire? Sammy Smith, David Ginn, or Barry Mitchell come to mind as performers with vast experience who have shared tons of ideas and routines. Richard has the same or more experience, and what has he shared......nada...zero...zip.

Harv, what exactly is your point? I don't know any of the Tricky Ricky's, but you seem to think this Richard Lyn is doing something wrong by not giving you his routines. He doesn't have to share his routines with you or anyone else. They are his and for his shows. Sammy Smith and David Ginn (never heard of Barry) are actively selling routines and items and making money from lectures; Richard Lyn, it seems, isn't. To compare them makes zero sense. From where I stand, Richard has shared with you exactly what he is obligated to do...nada...zero...zip.

Harv,
What I mean to say is that he could do my tricks for a room full of 4 year olds, and watching him make them giggle for 45 minutes is what I'm interested in the most.

Steve.... of course he is not obligated to reveal any of his routines, but it would be nice if he contributed some useful information based on his vast experience (look up posts by Donald Dunphy, Kyle Perron, or Dennis Michael to name three guys who really care and contribute many, many useful and creative ideas). Anyway, the subject is closed as far as I'm concerned.

Richard Lyn has contributed a TON of useful information based on his vast experience if you are a full time professional. I know I have learned more about entertaining children reading his posts than 99% of the stuff I read here.

Of course, I could also care less if somebody shares their great routine for 'insert trick here'. I'm a full-time professional entertainer, I have plenty of routines. I write most of 'em myself.

What ever floats your boat, I guess.

Richard, if you are reading, thank you!

Best,

Dan-
