Hello friends, it's been quite sometime since I posted my last post.
I got to know about the magician DMC recently through his TV special beyond magic, which was broadcasted on national geographic. I must admit that his style of presentation really fascinated me, this is the kind of magic I personally like.
I would like to know what my friends think about his style and also I would like to know about other magicians having this kind of serious style.

Do you just mean magicians who aren't joking constantly, or is there more to it than that? Because there are plenty of magicians who aren't "comedy" magicians but make the occasional joke, a few who basically don't joke at all, and at least one that never talks.

I mean about magicians who focuses on the mysterious part of magic more. They might have that mysterious smile with them. Some of the magicians that came to my mind when thinking about this style is DMC, Cyril, Lucas

Teller can be like this when he's doing some of the more artistic stuff. His miser's dream and his version of the needle trick both spring to mind. I also really enjoy Christian Cagigal. He tells stories with his magic, but it's more of a bizarre, ghostly, ethereal, almost surreal bent, though he does occasionally make jokes, generally to break the tension a little.

I managed to watch this series recently.
This dude is just another image and video performer. Not seeing anything special here. Very boring to watch and a very stiff perfomer (wife agrees too).
Maybe DMC stands for Dull Mediocre Cardguy or am I missing something?

I like folks who present their performances in a mysterious way. I am not personally fond of DMC as I also find him rather boring. I recognize that he's pretty successful and I can probably learn from him some day, but trying to watch his actual performances is not my thing.

Hello natmagic, I would really like to know how you see the style of Cyril, he's also mysterious but different from DMC.

Hello my dear friend, can you suggest me some performers who present their magic in the mysterious way. Maybe that can help me a lot.

Adam Weiss. Derren Brown. Several bizarre folks. David Blaine. Alain Nu.

Quick note: Just because I don't care for DMC doesn't mean your enjoyment of him is invalid. This is a personal preference - if you like his stuff, go on liking it. Don't let me change that, I'm just some guy on the internet - I don't matter.

That being said - I am semi-forced to watch a lot of performances online. Between my day job and folks in my life trying to be helpful, I get sent a lot of links. I rarely am able to finish watching even the shortest clips. However, some time ago, I found or was sent this link (I can't remember how I came across it at this point): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcOMcbWW474

My personal opinion is that this is among the most magical of videos on YouTube currently. It's personal, it's powerful, it's amazing, and if you're not familiar with certain skill sets, it's very fooling. I would hope we could all strive to achieve the level of connection and emotional effect the lady in this video is clearly feeling.

Cyril can pull off the mysterious style and holds that character consistently. The DMC dude doesn't seem to know what he is. When he performs it just leaves me cold. Just don't see anything special about what he does, very one dimensional.
Derren Brown is frickin awesome he has something about him that is 100% believable and classy. There is a dude that deserves to be where he is in my opinion.
