What Is A Magic Consultant?
A must read for magicians who have never hired a consultant
There’s one thing all of the most famous magicians have in common; they all begin their names with the letter D… and they also all work with consultants.
David Copperfield: with consultants like Chris Kenner & Homer Liwag.
David Blaine: with consultants like Daniel Garcia, Marc Kerstein, & Asi Wind.
Derren Brown: with consultants like Andy Nyman, Paul Kieve, & Hector Chadwick.
Dustin Willman: with consultants like Stuart MacLeod, Kyle Marlett & Davey Rockit.
Famous magicians work with magic consultants, so why are all magicians not doing the same?
Chris Cox recently discussed working with Andy Nyman for a few days on his act a while back. Nyman is the co-writer and co-director of Derren’s stage shows and consultant for many of his television specials. Imagine having Derren Brown’s director, writer and consultant work on your mentalism act for a few days.
Chris did more than just imagine it; he made it happen.
Chris said some magicians don’t think twice about spending a few hundred dollars on a prop they’ll maybe never use, so it’s amazing so many magicians choose not spend the same on a world-class consultant who can improve their act forever.
Chris Cox just opened his west end show here in London, btw.
