Is this the same Tricky Ricky who is a member here? I know there are a lot of magicians called Tricky Ricky. I don't know who this one is but I best he is the best of the lot. I was quite impressed.

And here is another one. The video is a bit dark so I am not 100 percent sure it is the same guy but I think it is .

There are a few seconds I am not over-excited about but overall it is very impressive. The kids are laughing non stop.

That is the magic Café Tricky Ricky (Richard Lyn) the pride of Toronto. Tricky Ricky is every bit as good as Silly Billy, and they both make the same kind of money (although Richard's money is Canadian). That is my opinion of this master magician, and Richard Lyn is a very snappy dresser too. He is absolutely my favorite Chinese/Jamacian/Canadian magician.

BTW Ricky has no time to lecture, because he is booked.

In my humble opinion it shows a master children's entertainer at work. I do have some reservations about a bit of business used in the Miser's Dream sequence and I think a performer of Richard's stature would be better off without it. Of course it seems to be an old clip and possibly Richard is no longer using the bit anymore anyway.

After seeing some dreadful You Tube videoclips of so called children's entertainers, some of whom are on this very forum it is a pleasure to see someone who knows what he is doing. Note the laughter all the way through both clips from children who are in a state of great delight.

Richard is not only a fantastic children's entertainer, and the busiest in Toronto, he's also a really, really nice guy. Richard can make 4 or 5 tricks last an hour and keep a room full of children enthralled. That's entertainment!

Hello there Al.
Thanks for your gracious comments.
Come April, I will be 66.In the last 3 years at 63 I've tried not to do too many shows.I'm semi-retired from the magic business.
I only take certain bookings to my liking. Not much traveling, I like to stay in my vicinity.
I have a bad right shoulder from playing baseball that makes lifting painful,that is why I pack small play big.
I'm schedule for a operation for a deviated septum in June, and that's going to put me out of the business for a while.

Ricky, I am so sorry to hear that you are having helth problems!. I hope your surgery goes well and you recover from it soon! I will have to try to remember to watch your YouiTube videos when I get to a computer with DSL!

Best wishes!

Thanks for your concern Regan.
The operation is a minor one for the deviated septum. Anyone who has this condition knows what it's like performing with a stuffy nose.
The minor procedure to correct this condition is called (Septoplasty).I wonder if any of our Café members ever had this done, maybe I could get some feed back.

Toronto has quite a few great children magicians some of the Café members had never heard of, except *********
Buck Macleod-- Wij--Uncle Ronnie aka *********--Robert Presswood--Lofty, just to name a few.
When it comes to doing magic tricks (sleights)I'm probably the worst of the lot. What I have is more experience and age, well, maybe ********* is just a bit younger than me.
Talking about Mark, he has a wonderful video clip on his web site. Everyone should have a look at a master doing his thing. The guy is from the UK,he's got to be good.

We are all getting older, but in my opinion you are still the best.

I am happy to say I know Tricky Ricky! He is a very down to earth, nice person who has given me advice and is happy to help fellow Magicians. I have also seen him perform live. He is an excellent entertainer. However, it is not what he does that makes him special. It is how he does it! Bravo Tricky Ricky!
