12 days of Christmas Magic - Day 5

Day 5 – Alan Shaxon
      The Magic Circle’s most elegant performer remembered

Former President of The Magic Circle Alan Shaxon passed away just recently and will be much missed by members as one of the nicest people in magic, as well as one of the most skilled and knowledgeable.  The elegant way in which he moved while on stage, always knowing exactly where the next prop was positioned as he disposed of the previous one without you even noticing was always a great lesson to any magician – or anyone else who stands up in front of an audience. 

Here Alan performs the ‘Zig Zag Lady’, the classic created in the 1960s by his friend Robert Harbin.

“Doc, I can't stop singing the green green grass of home.” 

“That sounds like Tom Jones syndrome.”     

“Is it common?” 

“It's not unusual.”
