Close-Up Sleight of Hand back to top
Whether you are entertaining a few friends and family, holding a dinner party, or need a magician for a large corporate trade show The Magic of Virgil is the one for you. Virgil has been extensively training his hands for over twenty years to bring you a flawless ballet of magical sleight of hand. Close-up, (aka: Sleight of Hand, Roving, Strolling, Walk-a-Round, or Street Magic), is the best way to get face to face with true magic. Everything happens right under your nose and even sometimes right in the palm of your hand. This is a terrific ice breaker, creating the perfect atmosphere for your event. Especially useful to get the audience ready for the full evening show.

"One of the most interactive stage shows performing today, the energy and laughter never stops." - International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring #74, NY
"I am extremely pleased to recommend Virgil, as he is a true professional. He performed many choreographed classic routines along with a hilarious comedy magic act. He captivated the audience with his personality and style keeping them entertained with a quality performance." - O’Brian C. Roberts, Producer, Bermuda Magic
Audience members of all ages are invited up on stage with Virgil to share in the magic. If Virgil doesn't have one or more people on stage at any given part of the show, then he is down amongst them performing in the crowd. Using a wireless microphone with his sound system allows Virgil to roam free all over the stage and audience. And that he does.
"The adults love it when the kids are up here on stage with me, and the kids are having fun when the grown- ups are up here. I have a blast all the time. The whole show is a win - win situation." - Virgil

Lectures (Magician Groups Only) back to top
Virgil is now lecturing to Magicians and Magic Groups. (i.e.. International Brotherhood of Magicians, Society of American Magicians, Magic Conventions, etc.)
| Virgil is one of the
world's leading authorities on
the magic utility device called the "Topit". This device makes your
ordinary tricks look like miracles.
Being one a small handful of world-wide experts using the Topit has given Virgil the ability to develop and design a unique lecture. This presentation is 1-1/2 hours in length and is jam packed with original material. There are also many well known effects that have a new twist to them when the Topit is utilized. Such lecture topics discussed are: What is the Topit, How do I stand, What do my hands do, What type of jacket is best, The "Throw", The visible vanish, The invisible vanish, How to change one object into / for another, and many, many more.
Virgil has a few audience members actually come up and learn how to use this device in front of their peers in just minutes. It really is that easy to learn how to use. Yes, there is much practice needed after the fact but the payoff has no price.
