David Stone flew from his hometown of Paris to appear at our convention!
This man has written 6 books on magic and has made more than a dozen instructional videos - all receiving top accolades! These, combined with a great comedic sense, have given him recognition in the world of professional magicians.
He is a FISM medal winner, and has been presented numerous awards from FFFF - the most prestigious gathering of close up magicians in the world.
He has presented his lecture on Restaurant Magic in 20 countries, and is easily the most famous French magician outside his country.
Richard Osterlind has long been considered one of mentalism and magic's most creative minds, and one of the leading teachers of the art. Beyond his now-classic mentalism publications and DVDs (including his renowned Mind Mysteries DVD series, and his general-public work, "Mind Over Matter"), he's been a full-time professional mentalist for over 40 years.
An informal survey revealed Osterlind to be THE most influential mentalist ever, ranking higher than Corinda and Annemann. This might have to do with him publishing 25 instructional DVDs and 16 books on the subject.
Master magician Rocco Silano is an extraordinary Sleight-of-Hand Artist and International TV-Star who charms audiences the world over with his elegant style of prestidigitation.
He is the only American to have won awards at two FISM World Championships: in '94 in Yokohama, Japan, and “Most Original Act” in '06 in Stockholm. He has also been nominated 9 times as Magician of the Year by the Academy of Magical Arts in 4 different categories.
Early on in his career, Rocco studied under the legendary sleight-of-hand master Tony Slydini. You'll probably recognize his face from the boxes of "D'Lights" - the popular magic effect that has sold more than any other trick in history!
Pop Haydn has been one of the PMJ's all-time favorites, and we're thrilled to be bringing him back!
He's been named Stage Magician of the Year, and has been awarded 7 Performer of the Year awards from the Magic Castle in Hollywood.
Pop has opened for Jerry Seinfeld, the Smothers Brothers, Loretta Lynn and others, as well as entertaining on countless cruise ships around the world. Haydn has worked hotels and casinos including Caesars Tahoe, and was one of the first acts chosen in '96 to open Caesars Magical Empire in Las Vegas.
If there was someone here you weren't familiar with, you're probably a fan now. Each one of them proved to us why they're internationally recognized as the top of the heap!
They came here from Paris, Philadelphia, Louisville & LA - and collectively they've circled the globe countless times performing and teaching magic.
Stone, Osterlind, and Rocco also appeared at the Salt Lake City Magic Jam on Jan 5-7.
