Nice idea, but it gets a bit dull towards the end

Nice ideas. Not too bad. I rather enjoyed it.

Enjoyed it very much - good story line and relaxed performance.

Joshua’s style is a refreshing change from the typical stand up magic act. Original, creative and with artistic merit. The low key, easygoing delivery seems to work very naturally for him. A little more punch at key moments of the act might have been nice, but hard to judge without see the whole act. I was wondering how well the audience could follow the card tricks as a lot of the moves were played low against the table and the angle could make it hard to follow what was going on, especially those sitting in the back. All in all an enjoyable performance. Thanks for posting this.

Joshua,
Nice job.

I liked how relaxed you were with your performance and the audience.

That was great. Very original and entertaining...

Was the restoration "Torched and Restored"? Or something different?

Good job Josh.

While this is great - I just wanted to ensure that you got permission to post this from Josh? It's part of his DVD set.

Hart - no, it's Bob Swadling's effect.

Bye.

What a wonderful idea. The lamp routine alone is worth the price of admission...

I can hardly wait to see the whole show.

Lol Asher's joke xD.

This video has been very helpful in studying about simulcasting. I'm planning to put on a close up work show and have NO idea how I'm going to simulcast it but I think I got an idea or two from the video.

Very creative act as well. Two thumbs up.

I enjoyed the storyline. I liked the routine with the lamp. Very nice!

Loved the chop lamp, and also really liked playing the cards like a piano to the music.
Message: Posted by: mc_magi (Nov 11, 2006 04:32PM)
Although it was creative, being a piano player myself, and having fwe laymen pianist as friends who's watched the video, we thought the acting was out of place and seemed a little forced.
