Luis Piedrahita

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: Luis Piedrahita!

Edit: I already posted this last year, but now in its proper April time slot.

Sometimes YouTube is a great thing, as it allows me to stumble upon great magicians for a change. Like Luis Piedrahita a 33 year old magician from Spain. He has a nice dorky look going and according to Wikipedia Luis is much more than a magician. He also is a stand-up comedian a script writer a broadcaster and an author. And you can tell by watching him perform that he has other talents than just magic.

As you can see he is particularly good at structuring his routines. You can tell that a lot of thought went into his routines and that it really is good close up stuff. (If you like lapping)
Here is another one:

I don't speak Spanish yet I am entertained. That speaks for the man and that is why I declare him a winner. Luis Piedrahita, you are a Winner in my book. Don't mess it up.

Edit: I always thought that Sankey's Airtight and Pressure by the T11 drones would work nicely together. Glad Luis tried:

Not done perfectly, but well enough I think.

He's not only a magician, you are right. In my opinion he's the best stand-up comedian in Spain and as he writes his own scripts, he has also made scripts for movies and successfully. Thanks for your post about him as I really admire him. :)
