I'm not sure why he's not in the Hall of Fame yet...

From T11:
In his first career as a close-up magician, although now known more as a comedy magician, Chris Kenner was one of those rare individuals who was not only proficient, but highly influential in both card magic and coin magic. His best-known creations are Threefly (arguably the most influential coin trick of the last 50 years) and the Sybil cut (which helped inspired a generation of card flourish enthusiasts). His best-selling book Totally Out of Control features over two dozen of his other close-up creations. An additional handful of original routines were featured in his first book, The Right Stuff.

Along with his long-time friend, Homer Liwag, he published the ground-breaking periodical Magic Man Examiner. He also produced and starred in the short films Brokeback Magic Mountain, and Magic in Jeopardy! For the past sixteen years, Kenner has worked as David Copperfield’s executive producer. He currently lives in Las Vegas, and spends approximately half the year touring the world.

Welcome Chris!

I didn't know that he invented the 3 Fly concept or the Sybil Cut, thank you.

I thought you guys should see a few clips of Chris in action, this was filmed a while ago but everything he does can be learned from 'Totally Out Of Control' - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DM6zuzlaUVA

I've watched this clip so many times, and I love it more and more every time.

Everything is taught in TOOC, EXCEPT some of the phases of the ambitious aces routine.
