I was talking to a friend about magicians currently creating and performing. His argument was like many in the over 40 age group was that magicians nowadays got nothing on the guys from previous eras. Anyways the name Dan Hauss got brought up and I realized that Dan because of his shying away from the limelight has made him not as recognizable as some others who do not have as much material available. Lets look at the facts, this guy has twice been a consultant for David Blaine on two television specials he has been the creator of The amazing shrinking finger(worldwide best seller) Flow(mega best seller) Sleeping Queen(best seller) Lit(world wide best seller) Riot (huge hit) Redline and several more. What's insane is that he basically with the exception of shrinking finger did all of those effects in about a years time. What about you guys what are some other magicians that deserve props? BTW I hope this thread will be used to build fellow magi up and not tear them down.
