Friday Magic Showcase: Dai Vernon (1894-1992)

This week's Friday Magic Showcase features Dai Vernon, "The Professor." Many consider Vernon to be the father of modern close-up magic. He trained many of today's best sleight-of-hand artists during his years of residency at Hollywood's famous Magic Castle and was the subject of a 2005 book, The Magician and the Cardsharp, which detailed his quest to seek out the elusive "center deal." I highly recommend reading it. Here is Dai performing his take on the classic cups and balls illusion.
