Many have tried to disillusion us from the wonders of magic by revealing the secrets on how so called magicians, or "illusionists" cheat our senses. The eyes are deceived so very frequently with a quick slight of hand, or an obviously intentional distraction.
However, it remains a sensational source of entertainment for children of all ages. Grown-ups are also enthralled with the baffling performance. Though some tricks could be explained, there are new players that have been mystifying the new generation.
For the traditional forms of magic, it is always more engaging of you match your magic performance with humor. People would be more interested in an act that makes them laugh rather than a very serious delivery.
It may look like circus magic, but it still works best for kids who are always fascinated with magic tricks. It helps if the magician is hyper on stage and works with comical assistants that can add to the fun of the performance.
I've watched a performance of a magician named Rico D' Magician, and though his delivery was kind of rude and "slapstick comedy" for some, he got the full attention of the children in the audience.
Rico D' Magician became popular due to his participation in a TV reality contest. It added value to his name and branding. Television coupled with social media promotions really does help in jumpstarting one person's career.
