Jerry Sadowitz

It is April. In celebration of this blogs two year existence, the whole month will be winner time. Only the coolest and best members of our elite circle of nerds will be featured.

Today: Jerry Sadowitz!

Let's talk about American-born Scottish stand-up comic and card magician Jerry Sadowitz. I heard he is around, I also heard there is little footage online. Well I looked hard an I found little. Nothing that showcases his magic.

But over the last few day I have read two books. One is a red book called "Card Zones" and the other one "Cards on the Table" and my whole opinion about that man is based on those two books.

He is a fucking genius. The way he constructs routines is skillful. I cannot believe I have not gotten the books earlier.

Certainly, quite a few magicians and people will not get along with him, as his style of humor is offensive according to Wikipedia. But that doesn't take away any of his brilliant thinking in the magic realm. Cool guy... I love the magic.

Hear hear. You should see him perform the stuff. It's the Vernon doctrine personified.

Ironically, Sadowitz is one of very few to bring a little dignity to magic.
