1. Who, in your honest opinion, if put into a ring, would survive based on martial arts and ninja training, You, wayne, or dana (take it easy on dana..)

2. Have you ever considered doing comedy, weather it be improv of stand up. Becuase i can see a comedic genius in your performances.

3. Are you ever planning a trip to Canada for some shows? Oh by the way, it doesnt get 30 degrees colder when you cross the boarder (silly texans).

I consider myself a Modern Magic
Most of the Old School magicians talk Sh** about the stuff I do

Here are three questions

1.Do you think Comedy,Flourishes Takes away from the Magic?
Should there even be any Comedy in magic?
read it all here

2.What do you about Hecklers,do you challenge them like me?

I would recommend challenging them
You will look good and he will look like a fool
Hecklers are trying to make you look like a fool so you might as well destroy them
When I do Brian Tudor's Heckler or any other Sleight Strong routine the HEckler Shuts Up
The last time I dealt with a Heckler I destroyed him With The Politician
Hecklers are good for me
It gives me a chance to make an audience member feel like a Fool

1) Since you have created so many effects, do you exclusively perform your own material or do you also perform other people's effects?

2) How did you go about building your "reputation" in the magic community?

3) If you could recommend one book to a beginner to properly start out learning magic, which book would it be and why?

1) Many magicians have certain advantages when first learning magic. They have mentors, or they have a local magic shop or magic ring where they can interact with other magicians. My question is, is it possible to become a true professional magician without these things? I don't have a magic shop, or mentor, or anything. All I have is a deck of cards and myself. Is that enough to make it?

-When creating an effect where does the inspiration come from and what are you trying to include?

-What are your must-haves in a trick? What makes it something you enjoy and want to perform?

-If you and Wayne were forced to play table tennis who would win? And why?

Edit: Not sure if it's only 3 questions... If not which other Artist do you admire the most?

Seriously, done now.

3.I have seen your videos and I think you are a really nice guy. I am a Modern Magician and I believe in the philosophy that magic needs to be more about the skill a magician has, whether it be dexterity,speed or sleight of Hand, and less about the presentation(comedy), and dramatizing the narrative. As you see to be more of a Comedic kind of guy, I was wondering how you feel about this philosophy?
.What do you feel is the most important attribute a magician can have?

Sleight oF Hand?
