No news on Paul Wilson's set. Louis doesn't spill the beans on this stuff. I only find out about new releases about 2 months before the release. I'm looking forward to Wilson's set as well.

There's a lot of good stuff that is waiting for release - Jim Swain, Boris, Hilford and others. We might even get a new book out of L&L before the end of the year! We'll just have to wait and see.

I'm glad Frank will still be there. His reactiions are quite honest. He's the perfect audience member for these shoots. He's intelligent and polite. He claps when it's owver, but if he's fooled and really likes it, he gets the biggest smile, chuckles and becomes a bit more annimated.

I was lucky enough to be present for the Boris Wild Shoot. Boris is an outstanding performer. He works entirely with cards, but was able to hold our attention throughout the entire shoot. Card workers... this is another "must have" DVD from L & L. I'm anxiously awaiting the release.

Everytime I drive through Loomis I think of you Dennis....

Boris is a very good performer and his FISM act will suit all you guys who think magic can get you women....it still won't but if you were a suave French dude like Boris it works.

I wonder if the audience get paid for being in the video? or are they doing it for free, since they get to watch a free magic show?

I'll tell you something...I was in L&L country today (I don't know exactly where they are but was in town) and if they are in Tahoma the sign says population 200. Next up is Incline Villiage, which isn't much larger. I don't think they have much choice but to use the same people! Beautiful area though, Louis is smart to headquarter there.

Note: before anyone says that there are other towns that could supply people I am aware of that.

Magic Santa - You say "next up is Incline Village, which isn't much larger." Incline Village has about 9000 residents. It's not next up either as Tahoe City is only a 15 minute drive with 1800 residents.

And you can go 40 minutes away and be at Carson City with loads of people, thirty minutes further than that is Reno with more peope, make a right rather than a left and you can hit Stateline....I put my statement about other towns near by to avoid listening to people who think L&L should bus in people.

Let me make this clear Wayne....I was giving a general statement about the area being sparsly population not providing a road map for people who want to tour the area. In case you really want to know I took the wife on a drive up the grade out of Mindon, Nv, hooked through through Stateline, South Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City (yes, I'm aware there are other areas designated as 'towns' between South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe City but I don't really care to list them) then rather than going up toward Truckee I continued around the lake through Tahoma and Incline Villiage, whos sign is incorrect as to population based on your statement. Thus Tahoe City as not next after incline or Tahoma based on the direction I was driving. I then went through other lil' towns, went down to Carson City, wanted Chinese so I went to Fernley after picking up my wifes friend. The towns I went through that I wasn't going to bother mentioning between Carson City and Fernley were Moundhouse, Dayton, Stage Coach, and Silver Springs.

Now what is your point?

Just wanted to chime in and say I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE the L&L audience... my friend Jeff and I always like to chuckle at them, almost like we know them, everytime we pop open a fresh L&L DVD, a new pack of cards, and an ice cold Cheerwine.

Except we don't really drink cheerwine when we do magic.

I went back up there and missed Tahoma completely! Drove through w/out knowing it. I checked Incline Villiage, they have 6000 people but the part on the highway isn't any larger than some of the little towns, it goes back into the mountain further. So clearly they should fire the audience and move to Incline .

I love the L&L audience. Seeing them over and over again makes me feel comfortable and warm, like turkey dinner at grandma's house. They are like a second family to me.

They are much more realistic and entertaining to watch then a bunch of drunken tourists walking around Las Vegas looking for street magicians to entertain them.

I had never read this thread before though I too wondered about the familiar faces in the audiences.

However, the most hysterical thing about this was the orginal poster and his disgust at feet. Why feet? Why not ears, kneecaps or tongues? Feet come as a part of the package!

I love the L&L audiences. I wish all the magic videos that I have would have used an audience. It is important to see a routine presented to people - not for the people's response as much as for the magician's chance to interact with the audience. That is what is missing from DVD shoots which are purely in the studio. The magician is busy watching the camera or the monitor instead of interacting with people.
The real magic is family!

(Gasp) And I thought I was the only one!

By the way how do you spell "Janelle"? They never cover it in the Explanations section.

Looks like L&L has heard your prayer, they've got a whole new set of audience for Bill Malone's DVD.

Yes, I have noticed on some more recent L&L DVD's some new faces.
Absent are John, David and Janelle.
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.

Does John know he has reached the status of a cult figure? (Would he be happy to hear it?) Same goes for the rest the regulars... Keep in mind when you type, this is a public forum!

I confess that when I drive in that area I look for those people.
