Pop magically reading the audiences question via the “The Sphere of Destiny.”

Since this show was only days before the Magic Castle awards ceremony The audience was filled with big name magicians and Pop did not disappoint them.

I’m just a little country boy, so ice sculptures still impress me.

A few days after Pops show, I attended the Magic Castle’s award ceremony.

In case you ever wondered what a stack of 30 nomination certificates from the Academy of Magical arts looks like.

The Orpheum Theatre is probably the most impressive theatre I’ve ever been in.

It was an incredible show with magicians from all over the world performing with Jason Alexander (George from Seinfeld) as the MC.

Several of the acts were literally Jaw dropingly good. (I’m well aware dropingly is not a word.)

Pop and his lovely wife Nancy.

 It was a pretty neat feeling when I realized I had probably just met half of the worlds top one hundred magicians.

The night after the award ceremony Pop, Nancy and myself attended  Lilly Von Schtupp’s

Monday Night Tease, a delightful show.

The evening was hosted by Batman and Alfred.

For a burlesque show, it was surprisingly wholesome.  The entire crowd seemed to know each other with people moving around from group to group and shouting across the small bar-room, it had a real family atmosphere.  The dancers were extremely well received and it felt more like a costume party than a strip club.

Robin ended the show with a bang.

The day after the burlesque show Pop and myself went out to find Bronson cave. Its better known as the batcave from the 1960′s Batman, it also appeared in countless other Hollywood features.

Here’s my version of a “B” movie.

It was a great show, I am very glad I attended.

I will also be photographing Pop’s next show and attending the Magic Castles 50th anniversary event at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.  Hopefully I will have more exciting photos from these events to share with you.
