Wow.....guess they were out of clothing at the yard sale..Sorry that was way to harsh...Just not my style of performing...Maybe a nice shirt and a real pair of pants...Wow...What can you really say. Really needs some work.

Ummmm... yeah... let me try to review that video without brutally assualting the performer with insults.


(1) That costume needs a lot of work. No, actually, that costume needs to be burned. A whole new costume is needed. No one would want him performing like that unless they were blind... which, wouldn't make much sense in the first place...

(2) Why does the soundtrack sound like an 8-bit Nintendo game? Midi files of classic rock songs?

(3) The Bin Ladin to an American Flag thing was tasteless, IMO

(4) The dancing and hypnotic jiggling was too distracting from the effects

(5) I won't even go into the lighting, production, and all other aspects of this video. I'll just pray I never see it again.



Overall rating:

If there was such a thing as "negative infinity stars" this video would be the first to achieve that rating. But I'll keep this realistic and say 0 out of 5 stars.

I agree, I laughed my *** off. I don't believe that guy is serious.

I love that he's using the Guitar Pro audio of Guns 'N Roses "Welcome To The Jungle." He couldn't have at least used the actual song? Oh well, that was enough entertainment for one day.

Devlin's Bio:

With his combination of Magic, Rock & Roll, and social commentary, Devlin quickly developed a diverse following. Playing major gigs throughout his home state and few neighboring ones too, Devlin has honed his craft. It wasn’t long until Devlin became one of the most requested opening acts on the rock bar circuit. Soon the magic world caught wind of Devlin. Along with being
***invited to join the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood California, Devlin submitted his act to F.I.S.M, the world’s most prestigious Magic competition held in Europe. *****

Closer to home, Devlin’s “Magic that Rocks” tour has just wrapped up its North American leg and there are major plans to take the show international. In the meantime Devlin is currently writing “Magicopolos,” the first ever Rock/Magic Musical about a boy torn between rock music and magic. Based loosely on his life, Devlin intends to take Magicopolos Off Broadway in the Fall of 2007. Join his freind's list to be notified when tickets go on sale and for upcoming tour dates!

This has to be a joke. I believe that's why he used the ring tone type music. It was all pretty well thought out as a gag...I hope.

On his MY Space page he says he submitted this act to FISM.

It gives hope to all who want to do magic. If this is the quality needed to be invited to join the magic castle, then I have nothing to worry about doing children's parties!

Okay, just had this sent to me from buddy in Atlantic city.........?????

I'm not sure what's wrong with the video - it has rock & roll, a unique personality, and dancing. I thought it was a well thought-out program that would be a winner in any venue, for all ages.

To be perfectly honest, he is on par with the majority of the magicians I have seen at IBM and SAM meetings.

I think he's awesome!! He's trying to be bad, which makes it very entertaining to watch.
Message: Posted by: Steven True (Mar 4, 2007 08:40PM)
I know this thread should have died already but I just got on the SAM Parent assembly web site and it says nothing about this guy. The post from fingerflickin I think is also a joke. The assembly is presenting the Magic of the Year award to Howard Schwarzman. The info about the ticket price sent me looking. $30 for adults?? Not the Parent assemblies shows like this one. It is $50. What is really funny is that we all had our opinions of this video and they were mostly the same. This is a joke and I would still like to know who the guy really is. I know he has a myspace page but as we have found out with other people and things that you can put anything you want on a website, about ourself usually, and get away with it. Oh well I guess we will never find out the real mystery behind "The Man With The Red Pants"..Gotta laugh at it though. Just my thoughts.

Happy Magic

Hey for what it's worth, I am not a joke, I have been a magician for close to 40 years, I posted it in hopes of trying to find a contact for Devlin, I have emailed him at that myspace page but have yet to hear him. The email I posted was from my friend Jack in NJ and if you notice the date, its from 2000 Not this year.
Just as bewildered and entertained as all of you.

That was really funny. It reminds me of an act I entered into a talent competition back in the 80s. Except I was deadly serious I'm ashamed to say.

Fingerflickin I am sorry if you took that as me saying you are a joke. I did not mean that at all. I am sorry if you missunderstod me. I was meaning that I thought what you put up had been sent to you as a joke. I hope that clears that up for me. I would like to hear from you if you ever do get ahold of this guy. Again I am so sorry that my words were not put different than they should have been.

Happy Magic

Devlin can put on a great comedy act without even trying. All he needs is his awesome Atari rock CD and some sponge balls. I just showed my brother Devlin's Myspace video and we had a good laugh. I'm sure others would be just as entertained. Don't you think?

I plan on incorporating his signature rhymthic bobbing into my act. (Whisper) Shhhhh... don't tell anyone....
