Pop those performances are absolutely beautiful. I use your Chicago surprise all the time and it's one of my crowd favorites

Pop - as someone who often watches your act three or four times in a row, it's because I become so enamored with your facial expressions and the patter that I miss the magic. The magic is great of course, but as with every great performer, it's the presentation that distinguishes it. What I'd give for your delivery!


Absolutely!

Thanks, Bob! Welcome to the Café! You know what it's like working in real world conditions. We've worked together in outdoor show conditions.

It is tough to have a lot of nuance when you are working outdoors at a distance from your audience.

One has to depend on delivery and timing more than realistic character. But there are ways to keep it interesting.

This is a clip from my Six Card Trick video. It describes some of the nature of how one creates multi-level characters, and how the magician can engage the audience in what is as much a game as it is a play:



Facial expressions have to come from character. Pop can have huge expressions because that is the nature of his character. I chose to make him that way to increase my own range and what I could accomplish with him. I am very low key and a bit shy. I am not naturally good with people and wanted the character to be more interesting and expressive than the "real" me.

You can't do better than to learn from Pop Haydn. Study him. Dig into his philosophy and the meaning and intent behind his work. He's a master, and a magician's magician.
