Magicians

  On the Dec. 21, 2017 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with the reigning World Champion Close-Up FISM Magician, Shin Lim about what it's really like to be a magician. His first appearance on Penn & Teller's Fool Me has 49 million hits.  His return performance was even better:

The host of a radio call-in program I frequently hear often informs listeners that the day’s guest “is out with a new book.” This always makes me wonder what other kind of book would be promoted. Well, children’s book author James Agee, of San Francisco, answers that question with “Terrific” and “Milo’s Hat Trick.”

Magician and actor Christian Cagigal combines his acting chops and sleight of hand to create unforgettable onstage illusions. His critically-acclaimed solo shows use storytelling and audience participation  to create intimate and disarming experiences. Cagigal talked with KALW’s Jen Chien about combining theater with sleight of hand. 

CAGIGAL: I want you to confront what you think is real, and what you think is not. 

Cagigal also performed a trick live in studio. Check it out in the video below.
