    Thanks! :)
  6. Who was the one that most influenced you regarding your magic career?
  7. These are my questions:
    - What is your most impressive trick/illusion? (So, which one does your audience usually find the most mind blowing?)
    - How did your first show go? (What went well and what didn't go so well?)
    - What has been your personal best experience of the past 14 years?

    Cheers :D

  10. 1. How do you handle audience participation? More specifically, do you choose people randomly or do you pre-select them before the show?

    2. What have you learned about doing TV? For example, was there anything you would do differently if you had a chance to redo the Letterman appearance or the History Channel special?

    3. How much creative control do you have over your show? Working for the Waldorf Astoria, do new pieces have to be approved? Has anyone had to tell you to take something out of your show because you ran into trouble? Or do you have a director?

    I think that it's really great that you're doing this podcast to help us magicians who want to know how you became so successful.
