WMF David Martin



Another year, another WMF. This time David Martin,



If you mess up, which can happen and you are being called out for it, don't lie!

The video tells you all. Yet for some strange reason I feel the need to add a few things. David Martin says in the video that he is doing magic for over 25 years. This is strange claim. And most magicians do it. I got a magic kit when I was 4 years old. Does that mean that I am doing magic for 26 years now? Hardly.

If I am honest with myself I should say that I seriously got into magic 10 years ago. And others should do the same.

Also: Martin claims he does "cutting edge magic"! I saw some of his "cutting edge magic" on his website. Making a dove appear, changing a card for another and what you have seen him doing on America's Got Talent. "Cutting edge magic" indeed.

And of course David Martin is not just a magician, no, he is a "master illusionist".

I get why people overdo it when it comes to advertisement. But should it be that way?
How about: "Hi I am David Martin, my wife and I are doing a fun family show that is enjoyed by most people and yeah I'm the guy that messed up during AGT!"

PS. Wearing leather, doesn't make you "cutting edge"!

Besides just the annoyingly repetitive "cutting-edge" phrase, most of his looks seem to be ripped from Criss Angel.
The funny part? If he's trying to hide it, he's not doing a good job: His solo show is called "MINDTRIP"

Upon digging further, he loves the phrase "Cutting Edge" so much, it's the name of his company! Check out http://hypnoticaproductions.com/

....joy.

Watching the clip made me cringe, the illusion didn't need the cock up, it was just so bleedin obvious! Couldn't he see that before he bought the flipping illusion, you would have thought he was sensible enough to see that it was a crap illusion. The mind boggles!!

I've just watched this again, let's just say he deliberately made the mistake, then his comedy timing was way off, and his comedy acting was awful. If is was a genuine cock up, then lying on TV was not a good thing to do, either way it was shite! I'm not in the habit knocking a fellow performer, but if you bring it on yourself and then you deserve all that comes your way. The method was so obvious, a really good comedy performer could have made this a really funny piece of entertainment, if it was done seriously, then it has to be the worst illusion I've ever seen!
