Cyril performs the hamburger-out-of-wall magic trick on the streets of Japan. Also known as Sero, Cyril is an American world-famous magician based in Japan. His story is really quite amazing - during a stopover in the country, he never got back on the plane. He instead roamed the streets performing magic to everyone he met and tried to get into the magic circles of Tokyo.

"The Lion fish - beautiful and...deadly."

James Kuhn paints his face into a beautiful Lion Fish. He uses watercolor paper for the fins that were simply (or not so simply) cut out and taped to his face. He puts on a wonderful show with his fish-like facial expressions. Perhaps he should try out for Carnival in Brazil!

Mr. Maric, a long-time "Super Magician" in Japan, shows off superb coin magic skills. Though this is an example of performance magic, having an understanding of Sleight of Hand principles is a must if you are just starting out with magic. Learning sleight of hand will enable you with skills that you can use in other fields, such as card magic, poker, and even at the dinner table on a first date.
