I'd like your opinion on who's the top magician, still living today?

Who's your top Mentalist ?

Who's your favorite performer?

And finally, who do you think has great potential for the next few years?


Here's my choices:

1) Top magician : Tommy Wonder and Juan Tamariz

2) Top mentalist: Richard Osterlind

3) Top performer: Bill Malone and David Regal (Aldo Colombini not far behind)

4) Future top magician: Joshua Jay

I'd like your opinion on who's the top magician, still living today?
Copperfield. I'm not a big fan, because it's not my style, but he's easily the most recognizable magician of the last decade. That and the fact that he marries supermodels.
Who's your top Mentalist ?
Osterlind. Anyone that can come up with the Breakthrough System should definately be at the top of this list.

Who's your favorite performer? Bill Malone or Jay Sankey. I love the styles. They both add a lot of comedy into their work. Sankey's a creative genius when it comes to effects and Malone's the same way when it comes to presenting effects.

And finally, who do you think has great potential for the next few years? Danny Garcia. He's already released 5 dvds and at least 2 sets of notes. He also has Paul Harris' endorsement.

Sorry. In my previous post I said that Tommy Cooper was the 'Best' peformer, and I just noticed it said alive today. So I'll replace that for Stephen Bargatze.
