Friday Magic Showcase: Meir Yedid

Meir Yedid became famous within the magic community for his "finger fantasies," wherein he makes his fingers disappear one at a time. This may be the most ironic story in all of magic. From
In 1986, a car accident severed a third of his right hand, the hand used for the routine. After nine micro-surgeries and a year and a half of extensive therapy, Meir continues to amaze audiences with a refined sense of magical dexterity and buoyant resiliency. He again claimed the S.A.M. Close-Up Magic Championship, in 1988, although this time performing his trademark finger routine with his left hand. This made Meir the first person to win the award more than once. He also received a special originality medal for his creative contributions to the art of magic.

I was lucky enough to be in the audience for the taping of this clip years ago at Tannen's Magic Camp.
