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 Kevin Peshick

Kevin Peshik performed Walk Around at our Parlor Show


Where did you grow up / where have you lived? 

Saginaw/Houghton Lake/Kalamazoo/East Lansing/Ann Arbor

How did you get started in magic? 

My father, who had been involved in magic before going to Korea, sat me down around the age of ten and decided his number four son would be the magician in the family.

What type of magic do you perform? 

Close-up, Parlor, Bizarre

What is your favorite magic book? 

Strong Magic and Designing Miracles by Darwin Ortiz, The Experience of Magic by Eugene Burger, The Books of Wonder by Tommy Wonder, The Workers Series by Michael Close, and Magic in Theory by Lamont and Wiseman.

Kevin Peshick performs a Water Illusion with the assistance of Mike Bogdas and while Bill Rabe looks on.

Who is your favorite Magician of all time? 

Hmmmm, just one?
At the moment, Max Malini.

Do you have any words of wisdom for newer magicians?

Reading broadly, both within magic and outside of magic, will boost your creativity. Avoid the tyranny of the new; having to have every new effect that comes out will distract you from improving your magic. Help others and always remember: "It is better to be a first rate version of yourself than a second rate version of someone else." Lisa Minnelli
