He inspired a whole generation of magicians! Just a few weeks ago, he was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Paul Daniels died this morning.
My favourite section of his shows was “Under Laboratory conditions”. This was close up magic that just couldn’t be explained. Some of the tricks still have me puzzled to this day! That wonderment planted a seed in me that has made me the magician that I am today.
Of all of the tricks that Paul Daniels performed (he was on TV, almost every week, for 15 years … that’s A LOT of magic!), below is a video of the effect that magicians will remember him for forever.
I think you’ll like it … “Not a lot!”
Paul Daniels, 6/4/1938 – 17/3/2016
Thanks for the inspiration Paul!
