A Little History
It is hard to pinpoint when the first conjurers and magicians began to make a trade out of illusion and disbelief. Some references are made on Egyptian papyrus about unbelievable feats. It is certain that the ancient Romans performed the timeless trick of Cups and Balls, but after that magic fell into disrepute. It was considered witchcraft and who wanted to be burned at the stake? By the 1500s books started to appear on the subject, revealing conjuring secrets, but it is not until the 18th century that our modern idea of the magic show starts to be enjoyed. Magicians began to make a name for themselves, the most well known of course being Harry Houdini, whose specialty was as an escapologist. Since then magic has been getting bigger, better and more exciting with fans of this artform coming from around the globe.
What Other's Are Saying!
Roland and Susan work together so well and have so many different tricks. Everything is colorful that it does not get boring. I especially like the parlour setting with a just the right amount of audience participation.
Fantastic! They were the hit of the event. I still don't know how they did those tricks, and I was right next to them.
Everyone loved it, the colors and costumes and how in the heck did you ever float in the air like that??? We still can't believe it and you were so close too! Thanks to you. Hats off!
