It’s been an amazing year for virtual magic shows, including headlining at the Magic Castle, performing at Monday Night Magic in New York, and top secret news. But on Friday afternoon I learned something even more astounding.
The International Brotherhood of Magicians — the world’s largest organization of professional and amateur magicians, with 15,000 members in 88 countries — announced the finalists for 2021’s “Close-Up Magician of the Year.” This is an award Shin Lim won in both 2015 and 2011. There are only three names on the list. And one of them, taking my breath away, is mine.
The winner will be announced on July 9th, so keep those fingers crossed!!
