Day 8 - Shawn Farquhar
– the magician with a cupboard full of international awards
Shawn Farquhar is a Canadian who has probably won more awards than any other magician – or so he keeps telling us!
Here he performs his signature trick, which is another take on the Reformation theme. When he visited The Magic Circle he told us that this was the trick that got him re-booked on a regular basis by one of the world’s richest men. (The parties were usually on the client’s yacht but apparently he had built a big house with a lot of Windows). Then he showed us how to do the trick – so I sometimes perform a version with a Tommy Cooper theme.
So I said to the taxi driver, 'King Arthur's Close'.
He said, 'Don't worry, we'll lose him at the next set of lights'
