I see this magician has been creating award winning magic acts for some time. I cannot believe his unique approach to manipulation magic. Theme and unusual props and the act has a story in his Telephone Act.

I find the magic totally different and his creative ability to make the magic look puzzling as well adds to his talents.

Anyone have Sonny Fontana's DVDs from the International Magicians Society? It looks like Sonny Fontana put 2 items on the Masters Series set Disk 7 Vol. 34 & 35. Can any one tell what the topic of his material is about and his offerings?

Very entertaining. I wonder if he has modified his act now that telephones like that are no longer the norm.

Why does everyone think that the telephone is no longer used. I have 3 in my residence and there are parts of the country where the new fangle phones do not work and are not available. Take a trip outside side the city limits where their are rolling hills of grain.

Bubbly by Sony Fontana

Clever idea, but the gimmick is absolutely too small for adults hands!
It‘s a pity for the money...

Yes, that has always been Vernet's problem, they think only small children are interested in magic. Many of their items don't fit adult's hands.

Finally found International Magicians Society, seems they changed their website.

Here is a link to the page for Sonny Fontana.

They may have stopped selling individual DVDs as in the past.

For everyone's information, Erika Larsen recently posted that Sonny Fontana passed away earlier this month.
