Joan Caesar talks magic

A video profile and podcast with Joan Caesar, a retired teacher, magician and internationally recognized influencer in the world of magic.


[dropcap]Recently[/dropcap] I had soup and egg salad with Joan and George Caesar who live about 8 minutes from my house.

My mom refers to Joan Caesar as my 'second mom' because we've known her since my early teens.  I went to Tannen's Magic Camp because of Joan.  She is internationally recognized in magic and she is the person responsible for getting Canada recognized on the international stage at FISM (the Olympics of magic.) She is an International Brotherhood of Magician's Past President (2008-2009) and Founder and President of the Canadian Association of Magicians.  She has also judged every major convention including FISM and performs for corporate and social events.

Joan knows good magic.

In the podcast we talk about :

  • Why Joan founded the Canadian Association of Magicians (CAM)
  • Which world-famous magician was Joan's motivation to put Canada on the international stage for FISM (the Olympic's of Magic)
  • We talk about her life as a magician.
  • We talk about women in magic and why it's hard to be a woman in magic.
  • As a judge for the largest magic conventions in the world, Joan shares her perspective on what makes a great magic act.

We haven't talked about this publically at all, and a lot happened quickly.  This podcast sheds some light on Magician's Masterclass.

Penn & Teller's Fool Us is now on Season 3!! It is the best showcase for magicians on television.  I appeared on Season 3 episode 2  (watch here but this podcast is all about the behind the scenes insight information-- good, bad and ugly

  • Why we had to tape our segment three times?
  • If that wasn't my illusion, whose was it?
  • What Penn said about my Tshirt that didn't make it to air
  • Why I threw out Teller's signature
  • Why a hamster shocked the control room

Plus three things I learned from the entire Las Vegas experience

  1. What I learned from Teller's handshake
  2. What to swipe across your eyes if you wear stage makeup
  3. What detail came from magic legend Johnny Thompson

I'm joined with Peter Mennie who flew down to Las Vegas to be part of the taping-- with a degree in Television Production, Peter gives a unique perspective of magic and television.
