Fisher pops off about Popover, preps for upcoming lecture tour in Spain

He thought of the move before he was 17. He published it about 7 years later, and 10 years after that, put it to tape.

The One-Hand Popover by Aaron Fisher is a brilliant move that can be used as a production or a sleight. Though it’s not a flourish, it’s flourishy. It is one of the signature moves in his book, The Paper Engine, and the DVD was produced by Wayne Houchin and Dana Hocking.

Fisher talked to us about the Popover and so much more, including more about flourishy moves, how he develops new magic ideas, what he thought of Avatar and how the time he spent with California Vernonites changed his life.

Near the end, Fisher talks about this podcast he recorded about learning from the masters, and Joe talks about these podcasts about the pass.

And speaking of Fisher: He is headed to Spain for a 17-date lecture tour, and he says that he promises to get in “some trouble worth reporting.” Lecture dates and locations can be found here.
