I put this thread in a different section of the forum but decided afterwards it would be best to post it here instead.

I would just like to say congratulations to the magician who won America's Got Talent. I think he did an awesome job and made the rest of us magicians look good as well as brought good credit to the Art of Magic and the profession of magician. My thanks, congratulations and gratitude to the magician who won the contest!

Welcome back General. It is cool to see magic doing well.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

As far as magic goes I am a fan and just an amateur card guy and only do it for the love of it and doing fine thank you. Magic, in all its forms, watching good magic, is my favourite form of entertainment or escape from it all.

Glad to hear it Tommy. I don't watch magic much myself given that I am a performer, but I am always glad to hear of a fellow magician doing well for himself and winning a big contest like America's Got Talent.

What a FANTASTIC performance.

This puts magic back where it should be!

It was a welcome occurrence to finally see a magician "go all the way"!!! Haven't heard Chris Berman say that yet this year!

It is indeed awesome to see a magician win America's Got Talent ... it certainly confirms a lot of our suspicions ... the show is rigged for sure. Smile

I haven't actually seen his performances yet, but I'm sure it'll come across my Facebook/Youtube feed soon enough. I heard he does OOTW which is a favorite of mine. Smile

I honestly thought the Café would be going banana's over this ... Wonder why they aren't.

There is a thread about this in "Workers" and "Table Hoppers and Party Strollers". I think the discussion is diffused.

When there are a couple of threads on the same subject I usually pick one because it gets confusing and repetitive to be in several.

It's the superfluous apostrophe: it quells all exuberance.

I was delighted ... and a little surprised ... to see Mat Franco win the competition. He blew the judges away! I thought he came across as humble but confident, had a great personality, and worked hard at customizing each of his presentations.

Strange that no one, including the OP, mentioned the winner's name. After all, isn't name recognition one of the main benefits of winning?

So, congratulations to Mat Franco on winning America's Got Talent!

Actually, Arthur did.

I did think it odd that OP congratulated someone whose name he (apparently) didn't know. I'd at least have googled it before starting such a thread.

I think Arthur and I must have been posting at almost the same time as I didn't see his post until after I put up mine.

The thing is, though, that magic has come to be viewed as a generic form of entertainment- so much so that I've even seen bumper stickers that say "Hire a Magician."

Do you supposed that Frank Sinatra had a sign on his car that said, "Hire a Singer?"

To succeed in any area of show business, the most fundamental requirement is that people remember your name.

Amen!

Several years ago I was hired for a Christmas party. At the party, the company owner told me that they'd had a magician there the year before, but he couldn't remember his name. All he could recall was that he drove a black Viper. I said, "Oh, yeah: that was Brian Gillis."

Because he is not a member here, so nobody knows him?

Probably going to be a lot of threads about him in the future. Smile

Just winning a show like this does not guarantee continued success; there are a lot of American Idol winner nobody knows. How he will be able to benefit from this is still yet to be seen ... I suspect they'll try to turn his Vegas show into a TV show they can then syndicate out.

Well congratulations to Matt Franco for winning the contest. He did excellent work and we're (or at least I am) proud that he won!

actually, he is a member of the Café.
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.
