I just bumped into him by accident. Guy in black, surrounded by a crowd, doing the knife through coat. I only saw him that once.

So I just got a copy of his book, it's on my list after I finish Cellini's. Got them both this weekend, lucky me.

So is Jeff still performing anywhere. I'd love to see him first hand.

Being in the Armpit of the universe, Pennsylvania dosen't really help me get out all that much, after all Amish people are notoriously bad at tipping.

As I understand it, he's in Germany and does mostly mentalism nowadays!

Amish tippers! The concept is funny!

Evil Dan...did you see Jeff Sheridan at Marc Desouza's in Phila by any chance? The same exact thing happened at that lecture. It was very uncomfortable for me and everyone else in the room...as dead silence crept over the crowd while Jeff berated the magician that suggested a different approach.

I do agree that when you attend lectures to keep ideas to yourself or share them with the lecturer in private after the presentation. However, there are better ways to handle a situation like this than the way Jeff did.

I found Jeff to be a VERY strange dude. I guess most artist would be a bit strange. He is very talented and I've never seen anyone fan a deck of cards more perfect than Jeff Sheridan...and his Swan Lake rope routine was exceptional.

See, this is why I never drink anything while I'm on the computer!

Not judging him but the dvds I have of his are super boring, including the performance pieces.

LOL .. I clearly stated that I was referring to the DVDs & the performance pieces included in such, I have a thorough understanding that the performance on an instructional dvd is a far cry from a actual performance. Additionally I know an individual that was mentored by Sheridan while he was performing in New York, this individual had nothing but praise for sheridan.

Hmmm.... don't hear about Harry Anderson's busking days? Yet last night myself and a large number of Asheville based magicians ( our club actually had a "busking night") were out busking on Pack Square when Harry turned up... tipped well ( a real gent) and stayed a while to chat about busking. I tried to get Harry to work a while but I think he didn't quite feel like showing us up as the amateurs we really are... nevertheless is was quite something to have a busking icon in the crowd.


I've got fond memories of my time in asheville. No wonder Harry moved there after New Orleans arseploded...

Buy a rabbit in hat puppet and replace the rabbit with an Amish punching puppet. I did this for a card trick in which "Amos" suddenly appears to rid me of the devil.

I'd imagine this would clear your non-tipping crowd and make room for real tippers.

Sometimes it is difficult to convey the way an audience will react to a given piece when you are performing it in front of a camera in a studio.
