Who inspered me? I'd have to say Paul Daniels. Especially his cup and ball trick. It still remains, imho, the greatest, funniest and quickest routine since its invention. :D

To be honest, I'm inspired by kids that show me an honest effort to learn. I'm inspired by people that take magic as seriously as I do and people that watch it in awe, not of the moves themselves, but the effects overall. I'm inspired when I have people that have been doing this for over 40 years telling me that they want me to do a show in their theater.

you watch magic the same way as i do :) i dont watch it for the moves..i watch it because its enjoyable, and i think everybody else should too

Well I'd like to say first off that not too many magicians use fake voices or fake smiles, yes there are cheesy magicians, but not all, what you described does not describe just criss but many, why not be inspired by Penn and Teller? and I'm just wondering if you've ever seen one of Criss's shows before, not the tv stuff, nothing that was released onto dvd, but his real shows? If you haven't seen his stage show, then you don't know much about how criss performs.

Location: In a galaxy somewhere in the vicinity of Betelguese 5
When I was about seven, my grandfather took me to a magic show at a local school. There were about 300 kids and parents in the audience. When he called for volunteers, I raised my hand and he picked me along with a little girl. He then gave me a deck that hat been split in half, and the girl the other half (literaly cut, sliced at a diagonal). We each picked a card, and he said that if our card matched his prediction we were going to be married someday.

Our cards did not match, I had a red 7 and she had a face card.

He looked puzzled, then put our cards together, and he pulled out a jumbo card that was half my card, and half her card!

I thought that was the coolest thing, and Grandpa took me later to meet him. I asked him if he could teach me that trick, and he said to go to the library, and check out books on magic.

This was in the 70's, and I have no clue to his name, but he's the reason I started my quest. 8)
