Last Monday night in front of a live internet audience we set out to solve the mystery of the Night Creeper. Ghost? Frogman? Or something else? Although we’re pretty sure we figured it out, we haven’t definitively proved our theory. The mystery continues… Running time 55 minutes.
Check out our photos of the scene on Flickr.
We’re trying something new in conjunction with WeirdThings.com. WeirdThings.TV, all the weird you can handle 3 times a week.
Andrew Mayne presents an evil twist on a classic shock magic effect:
Phase 1: Demonstrate your ability to control pain by piercing a fish hook through your skin.
Phase 2: Display your uncanny ability to control your blood flow by moving the hook around without a single drop of blood.
Phase 3: Rip the fish hook from you flesh and appear to heal instantaneously in a supernatural manner.
…All of this takes place while the spectator holds on to one end of the hook.
Hook is Andrew Mayne’s devious update to the classic needle through arm effect. Shove an unprepared fish hook through your arm while a spectator holds on to one end of it at all time. For a disturbing finale, you rip the fish hook straight out of your arm completely unharmed.
Includes step-by-step instructions and special handling instructions.
DVD running time 30 minutes

So Rudy Coby, calls me up and asks me if I want to perform at the Castle during his week there. “Sure”, I respond without really thinking it through. After I hang up I realize I haven’t done a straight up magic show in the last million years that didn’t involve explaining how oxytocin receptors can be manipulated to encourage confabulation or how long dead Scottish philosphers deeply understood modern neuroeconomic principles. No problem…
Ever since I stopped touring most of my performing has been at conferences on economics and science. It’s a very fun venue and has allowed me to meet some very cool people. I’ve learned a lot from those folks and my show has evolved considerably from the experience. The problem is that my show evolved into a lecture. Great for those conferences, not so much for general audiences. While I think lay people would be interested in the same stuff I am, just not in that venue.
So now I find myself starting over from square one. Only this time I plan on using some of what I’ve learned in the structure of the show. I’ve actually called on one of my super genius science friends to help me with a stunt that I’ll be doing unless it actually kills me first.
In ten days I’ll get to perform this new hybrid of a show that evolved from the lecture that evolved from my original show. I’ve got some cool stuff planned and I hope it all works out right. We’ve already tested some of the stuff (Like Puppet Prestige) and called in a favor or two for a special guest appearance…
If you’re in town and want to check it out, rumor has it that there may be day passes available here: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll also be posting on Twitter when I have guest slots available.
Hope to see you there…

I love getting email like this:
As an All Round Entertainer who mostly sings and acts I also have a huge soft spot for magic and illusions.
I practise a little in an amateur manner and that’s enough for me at the moment.
My last singing gig was at a huge corporate party of a moving company, the guy who booked me for the event asked me if I could do something special for the ending of the event. I told him I would look into it but didn’t tell him if I could do something.
Searching the internet I found your In Half Routine and bought it at a local magic supplier ( a long with two of your other DVD’s)
I called the guy and asked him if I could get some warderobe boxes, I didn’t tell him why I needed them but that was no problem.
I build the illusion in 2 days and after some practising it went great.
A few weeks later the event went smoothly and when the guy announced the end of the evening I went on stage with a trolley and the boxes, he was surprised and didn’t expect anything to happen and asked me what I was doing:-) I stole his microphone and told the audience I was going to do something with “their” boxes.
I did the In Half Illusion and all went great, the crowd couldn’t believe what they just saw.
The reactions were undescribeble and fantastic.
I now added the routine to all of my gigs.
Thank you so much for this illusion, thanks a million!

To celebrate the new year, Justin Robert Young and I decided to make a short film – with puppets, yeti drug dealers and lots of gratuitous violence. It contains graphic language and is not intended for younger ears.
We hope you enjoy it. If you do, please retweet and forward it to your friends. If not, we sincerely apologize and want you to know that we’re getting the help you think we need.
