Wondering that kind of effect in a "seance" like performance ...

Interesting. I wonder if he is going to try that Biblical miracle -- "The Parting of the Red Sauce."

BTW, this is NOT street magic. This is restaurant magic.

LOL
In fact, I first planned to post the entire show, which is 1 hour long and entirely about street magic. :) I found that part interesting for the possible use in bizarre magic. :P
Anyways, here is the rest of the show. I really like the last minutes as that's, for my part, what magic is all about. :)

This stuff is not bizarre. It's good. It's realistic, but it's not really bizarre.

Most of it is not really "street" magic.

Why do you think it's bizarre?

Just watched the first 30 seconds of the first link. It's all in foreign (well, the voice over is). Bill, what made you think it was restaurant magic? Was it the heading レストラン ? Or was it the heading Restaurant at the start of the video clip?

No, it was what takes place later on in the shows. I've seen most of these clips, by the way. They are as much "street magic" as Criss Angel.

The guy goes up to a food stand. The "sea of people" parts. He walks up to a sign on the side of a restaurant. The sea of people parts. This is all "David Blaine" staging and "Criss Angel" work.

Much of this magic is done in restaurants and at formal gatherings.

And it is not bizarre.

It's good magic.

But it's NOT bizarre.

And it has all been posted in the Caf elsewhere.

Cyril is 100 times better and more entertaining than Criss Angel or David Blaine. I'd love to have his stuff on DVD.

Cyril is the best.

I thought his "Torn and Restored Fish" was truly weird, but like Bill said, Cyril does not technically do "Bizarre Magick".
If you want good seance effects, read Scott Davis's [i]Seance Magazine[/i]. I have the original publications when it was available for subscription, but it has since all been published in hardcover. I found it at the Center Tear:
