Of all the things Murray SawChuck works on for his stage show, the most important is his personality.
The creator of CD magic and coach on VH-1’s CelebraCadabra was featured in this article in the Sunday, Sept. 7 issue of The Province. He told reporter Glen Schaefer that he’s practicing not his double lifts, or his productions, but his comedy chops. From the interview:
“I spent the last five years trying to become more of a personality as well as a magician,” he says over the phone from Ketchikan, Alaska, where he’s doing nightly shows at a resort theatre. “I push the comedy edge, really trying not to take myself too seriously.”
Schaefer also detailed some of SawChuck’s non-magical work lately, including work with Robert Englund, who plays the legendary Freddy Krueger from the “Nightmare on Elm Street” series, and adult-film star Jenna Jameson. He noted that Johnny Carson and Bob Barker got their starts as magicians.
