Magic from Michael Vincent
The other night I was playing at a wedding in central London when I bumped into TV magician Michael Vincent, who recently appeared on ITV’s Penn and Teller: Fool Us. He was downstairs performing card tricks for the guests while I was playing piano in the gallery above.
I asked Michael if he could show me a magic trick and he was happy to oblige. He started by rubbing his hands together and asked me if I could feel the energy coming from him (which I could!). He then spread out a pack of cards and we each picked one without showing the other and popped it back. After giving them a good shuffle he asked me to ‘feel’ where his card was and take it, while he did the same with mine. I wasn’t surprised when he picked out my Three of Spades- after all, he’s the magician- but when I got his, the Ten of Hearts , I have to admit I was astounded!
The evening went very well and Michael was very complimentary about my performance. Needless to say I was very impressed by his, too!
