Profile of Schmendrick
I'm a magician, but I'm a different kind. My skills are certainly sufficient for a small, private circle. But that's about it. That's why I took the „stage name“ SCHMENDRICK over 30 years ago.
How did I come up with the name? Well, PETER S. BEAGLE created a wonderful fantasy novel with „The Last Unicorn“, which was also filmed. SCHMENDRICK is a magician in it, whom I would like to apostrophize as a disaster magician. And that was always me too! Some kind of trick went wrong at the screening, guaranteed. We all laughed about it. Well, I've always thought that only those with a sense of humor can laugh at themselves. That's why I chose „Schmendrick“ as my alter ego.
My real name is Horst M. Paffen, a typical German first and last name. Only the „M“ comes from Latin, Martin(us). I was born in 1949.
My favourite thing in magic is inventing tricks. From 1980 to 1996 I published a lot of them in the German magazine „Magische Welt“ by Werry (Werner Geissler). Werry might have been one of the greatest trick inventors of the 20th century. After his death (2000) Wittus (Hans-Günter Witt) took over the publication of the magazine. Since 2020 I publish general articles and magic tricks in it.
