Buffalo Bills special teams whiz John Dorenbos is a VERY good magician.

What?! You're implying that it's possible that someone COULD BE something *more* than a magician?!?! Blaspehemy.

Yes, I know. You're talking to a regular reader of randi.org here.

The surprise to me was not that he did magic, but that he was skilled in his sleight of hand ability.

I think everyone in the entertainment
business has dabbled in magic.

just like all actors, magicians,
comedians all dabble in music.

this is a pointless thread.

Neil Patrick Harris is an amateur magician. Also Jeremy Suarez, the boy who voiced Koda in brother bear is also interested in magic. I hear that Daniel Radcliffe was also bitten by the magic bug after working with illusionist Paul Kieve, who was a consultant in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

I do not remember his name, but s semi-local professional football player (for the Buffalo Bills, I live about 60 miles away) is a professional magician. He performed in Vagas and Hollywood for years before deciding to try out for the Bills. I never heard if he made the team this year or not though. There were a lot of newspaper articles about him and how his magic has almost "brought the team together" in a new way. It was very intersting.

I assume you're talking about Jon Dorenbos, who is an outstanding magician, but he is a young guy who joined the Bills straight out of UTEP. He's a special teams whiz and doing very well after two years in the NFL.

What Michael did in Labyrinth was even more impressive when you realize he had to be behind Bowie with his arm around him, performing pretty much blind! The DVD has some outtakes of him dropping the crystal ball... it's impressive that they could get any footage of him NOT dropping the ball under those circumstances!

Holy cow! That's hilarious! It's allright to knock a guy silly till he is laying on the matt unconcious, but you can't decieve him!

Here is something to think about: A magician who doesn't believe in deceiving people!?! Kind of oxymoronic, wouldn't you say?


That's like the George Carlin routine on Ali's refusing to be drafted; "Um, no. I'll beat them up for you, but I won't kill them." - "Well, if you won't kill them, we won't let you beat them up anymore!"

Why should this surprise you? Think about it. Most magicians assume that mentalists have no sleight of hand ability. Has it ever occurred to anyone that maybe mentalists cultivate the sleights they do to the point that you can't see them? Or that they look perfectly natural?

If you think this is far-fetched, think again. Punx did flawless billet switches. It was all done with a simple hand to hand transfer. He also did some flourishes beautifully, but never before an audience, because he didn't want them to know he could do them.

Some of Geller's early work with spoons was nothing but sleight of hand.

I'm surprised he would do magic for anyone. It kind of blows his cover.

Actually, If you are a working actor, it's imparative to undertake another or many crafts, such as playing a musical instrument, dance, song, comedy, martial arts, drama, painting, art, etc. As well as Magic!

Well, I'm not famous yet, but I am a working actor and magician. Actually, I'm a working actor who has just started to become a working magician again (I used to do paid magic gigs as a teen and in my early twenties).

But if you live in the Southeast U.S., you might catch me in a Buyowner.com commercial. I'm the drunk guy in the police station who is trying to figure out who to call; my lawyer or my old girlfriend.

Who knows though, you might hear about me very soon...

My understanding is that General Schwarzkopf was also a clown.

Also, another 'quiet' celebrity: David Kestenbaum, a science reporter on "All Things Considered", found on NPR, started magic at the end of second grade, and performed at parties well into his teens.

Justin Theroux, best known as the Irish guy from Charlie's Angles, the second one, and in the Six Feet Under show, seems to love it. He came into the shop I work at and bought some simple stuff to do for friends. Took me forever to figure out why he looked so familiar. I have this great ability not to recognise celebs until after talking to them.

Interested however, what about people in politics, there must be many.

I once saw Shaq at the Magic Castle. He had a deck of cards in his hand the whole time.
