Edinburgh comedy notebook: Magicians pull out funny new tricks - The Guardian (blog)
Magicians such as Pete Firman and mind-reader Chris Cox are regular favourites on the fringe; both are reinventing and updating the traditional magic show and have the jokes to match the high standard of the tricks, while newcomer Piff the Magic Dragon – imagine a young Jack Dee in a dragon suit – is also attracting a lot of attention for his offbeat approach. If you prefer your comedy magic a little more old-school, Paul Daniels and the (lovely, of course) Debbie McGee are still going strong with a more family-friendly show....

Magicians like Danny Cole inspired at an early age - Tahoe Daily Tribune
Masters of Magic headliner Danny Cole is no exception. He started doing magic tricks when he was 10. “Young boys pick it up at some time in their life,” said Cole. “I love visual stuff.
