  5. First off I want to thank Theory 11 for this opportunity. I apologize to every magician out there (although I regret nothing.) when I say this: Blake Vogt is by far my favorite magician. I look up to him and admire him, and I am glad that I found out about him through Theory 11.

    Second off I want to wish everybody good luck. Whoever wins will have me cheering for them; and I would consider getting any of my question even roughly close to being asked a victory.

    Now for my questions.

    1) Who was your father figure in magic?
    2) When you were younger did your family support you in magic or did you have to fight your way through alone.
    3) In your opinion what is they best way to build up/use magic? In other words is it best too be fun and connect with people. Is it best to be mysterious. And so on.

    Once again thank you Theory 11, and good luck Blake with you television appearance!

  14. First and foremost, congratulations on your marriage to your best friend :) was awesome to see some pics. If anyone has Twitter, I suggest you follow Blake, as he has some awesome videos that he puts up.

    1. Will you be following the likes of Steve Cohen and Dan White and have your own show where you are the magician, front and centre?
    2. We've been lucky enough to see you on TV, performing on AGT, Fool Us and Wizard Wars. Are there any future TV appearances you'll be performing your magic on?
    3. One of my favourite tricks ever is Regeneration. On Wizard Wars, you and Chris Funk did an awesome 2 man variation of Regeneration for Penn & Teller. Is there a possibility that these gimmicks will be released in the future?

    Here's a link for those who are curious

    Thank you for all your hard work. I look forward to whatever you have planned in 2017 :)

    1. What do you think the future of magic will look like? Will it be dominated by visual tricks done for camera?
