What comes to mind when you think of a “Magician”? Is it a penguin-suited, moustache-sporting guy who makes awkward dance movements and tells stale jokes while torturing women in wooden boxes? Adam Trent always thought that magic should be entertaining first and tricky second. I don’t want people to remember just the “tricks”, but also the laughs and the memories that were made. He realized that the most important element in a show is the performer’s connection to the audience, and without that even amazing skill can fall as flat as a bad boy band.
