12 days of Christmas Magic - Day 10

Day 10 – Piff the Magic Dragon – magic with comedy and a persona

One of the most memorable moments of Penn & Teller’s ‘Fool Us’ TV series was the night that Piff the Magic Dragon stole the show and rapidly went to win an even bigger audience on YouTube.

Piff is the alter ego of John van der Put, a former winner of The Magic Circle’s Close Up Magician of the Year, who went from jobbing magician to internet and Edinburgh Fringe phenomenon when he combined his magical creativity with his skills in stagecraft to create Piff.

“Doctor, doctor I feel like a pair of curtains”.   

“Then pull yourself together”.
