I am really excited to be performing with these great guys on October 27.
Christened the “soft-spoken conceptualist of sorcery” by the New York Times, Peter Samelson has performed all over the world. He has performed atop the Great Wall of China, in the jungles of Bali and the universities of Tokyo, for peasants in Mexico, and even for Grand Prix race car drivers on the World Cruise of Queen Elizabeth II.
He has entertained Princess Stephanie of Monaco, the jet-set of Paris, and the fishermen mending their nets on the beaches of Cartegena. From Kenya to the Magic Castle, from television to trade shows, college campuses to commercials, the New York stage, night clubs, and celebrity events, Peter Samelson has distinguished himself not only as a magician but as an artist.
Peter performs and lectures at colleges, universities, and Theater and Performing Arts festivals. Peter has staged two one-man Off-Broadway shows; “The Magician” and “PaperWork.” He also performs and designs for television, film, and theater including: “What About Bob,” “Whispers in the Dark,” for Kraft Salad Dressing, host on a syndicated 13 part series on Magic, CNN’s “Sonya Live!“, Mabou Mines, The Bermuda Theater Festival, the new musical “Houdini” and the PBS Special, “The Art of Magic.”
Michel Huot is one of Montreal’s busiest corporate magicians. With over twenty years of professional experience, he has over 4000 performances to his credit. Michel has been an invitee at the FFFF for decades. He has performed and lectured in Algeria, Mexico, USA, Canada, France, the Magic Circle in London, Switzerland, Italy and more! He is a regular in comedy clubs and, in his downtime, he has been co-organizing an international magic festival in Algeria for seven years. He is the creator of two of today’s best-selling tricks’ Priceless’ and ‘Socks.’ His creations have appeared in numerous magazines (Genii, MAGIC, The Magic Menu) and many books by David Acer, John Lovick, Paul Rohmany and others.
Jeff is a regular at the Parlor of Mystery and has thrilled Parlor audiences during intermission on several occasions. Join him in the lobby during intermission for some wine and to see some of his amazing close-up magic. Please do it, or Jeff will have to drink all the wine himself and it’s not pretty when he’s had too much.
