Though his Web site doesn’t reflect it, Nate Staniforth is back on the road, including a performance on April 16 at Minnesota State University Mankato. The MSU press release says that Staniforth consulted with David Blaine for his recent special, “Dive of Death.” There are some that say the lottery effect in “Dive of Death” was Staniforth’s creation; the two perform a similar version of this effect. (I’ll hunt down some confirmation on this.)
In addition to performing at Vandy with Brian Brushwood and others, Staniforth was featured last year in this report from The (Washburn University) Review. Check out the video interview, and how a lucky draw from a hat helped get Staniforth interested in magic.
