Ann Arbor Magic Club

IBM 210 - SAM 88


As a reoccurring feature of the Magic Messenger we will highlight a member and ask them to answer a few questions about themselves. This month the "Spotlight" is on our Feature Performer for August, Mike Bodgas.

Where did you grow up / where have you lived? 

I grew up in Cleveland, OH and moved to South Lyon in 2015..

How did you get started in magic? 

My grandpa was a kids magician in Cleveland. He had a room full of magic tricks and I was only allowed to look at them as a kid. If I was lucky, he would teach me a trick here or there. When he passed, I inherited his collection.

What type of magic do you perform? 

I like to do parkour style tricks but recently have been interested in doing close-up and card tricks.

What is your favorite magic book? 

Royal road to card magic is my favorite magic book.

Who is your favorite Magician of all time? 

I would say David Cooperfield. I remember recording his magic special on VHS tapes as a kid and watch them all the time. I have seen him perform three times as well.

Do you have any words of wisdom for newer magicians?

Even though I have been interested in magic my whole life, I still feel like it’s new to me. I enjoy the meetings and learning from the skilled magicians in the club!
