I know I’ve previously mentioned that I’m generally open to new experiences. It’s one of the ways I keep challenging my boundaries and finding out what I’m capable of doing.
So, when I had the opportunity to play the role of magician’s assistant at the professional Speakers Association at the recent PSASA National Convention in Cape Town, of course I leapt at the chance!
Andrew “Magic Man Eland served as our MC on one of the days of the convention and he invited me up on stage – he didn’t warn me of what was going to happen nor did he brief me on what magic trick he was going to perform. He did mention that he had never used a blind assistant before nor did he know of any other magician who had done so, so it was a new experience for us both!
And here’s the photographic proof – the photo shows Andrew and myself during the trick… when Andrew is just about to reveal that he’s turned one sponge ball into two… and no, I’m not going to tell you how he did it!
