I’m still in shock, but…

The International Brotherhood of Magicians — the world’s largest association for professional and amateur magicians, with 15,000 members in 88 countries — held their annual awards.  I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that I was voted Close-Up Magician of the Year!! This is beyond exciting… It’s like winning an Owl-Level Oscar, a Wizarding Webby, a Peabody of Prestidigitation! I’m now an internationally-award-winning magician.

Close-Up Magician of the Year?

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 …

Cover Feature in the Santa Fe New Mexican

I was so thrilled to discover I’d beaten out legendary actress Rita Moreno for the cover feature in the Santa Fe New Mexican’s weekly Pasatiempo arts section. It included a long preview of my spotlight performances at the Currents New Media festival. “Entertaining, astounding, and all too timely!”Santa Fe New Mexican Was exciting to perform …

Appearing (virtually) at NYC’s Most Famous Magic Theater… Tonight!

Okay, so the government’s UFO report turned out to be a nothingburger (sadface), but that only means the truth is still out there… and what better way to bring the truth to your coworkers than a private show with Andy Deemer, PrivatePsy?!? “Stranger Things meets David Copperfield!!”  Just some of the glowing reviews from last month’s …

February Research

While January was all about Bigfoot, February became a fantastic month of UFO chasing. I tackled a classic: John A Keel’s The Mothman Prophecies: A True Story. It’s a fascinating report of a town plagued by visitations, filled with olive-skinned giants and dwarfs in poorly-cut suits, vehicles floating over highway, the author’s radioactive sunburns. The …

Now A Magic Castle Performer

Well, I’m now a Magic Castle performer.  Being featured at the Castle, especially in one of those more-exclusive virtual shows, was a dream come true. And I knew it was going to be a hit, but I didn’t realize how much of a hit it would be!!! 274 cheering faces on zoom, and one folded-arms fellow, …

Rehearsals for the Magic Castle Show

If you’re on my e-mail list, you hopefully heard about this week of virtual magic show rehearsals, getting ready for this Saturday’s Magic Castle show. It’s a very tight 15-minute production (not as relaxed as my 45-minute corporate magic show), and it’s VERY fun. While the rehearsals are going on all week, they’re sold out. …

Appearing at the Virtual Magic Castle

I’ve performed for audiences at the Magic Castle a good hundred times, always in one of the impromptu spaces like the Library Bar, the Hat & Hare, or the Cellar. 20 or 30 or maybe even 40 spectators squeeze into these sought-after performance spaces to see close-up magic. They’re not official, they’re not promoted, they’re …

Magic to Salve the Pandemic

Even though the holiday season is behind us, the magic keeps on flowing. This week has seen several belated 45-minute corporate Xmas parties (for clients who failed to book in time), an insanely rambunctious 35-minute Zoom birthday party for a 35-year-old woman and her friends, and also a few 15-minute shows testing out some rapidfire …
