News Updates

Recently I was the cover boy on a magazine, for Canadian magicians, called Northern Peaks. I wrote an essay that was also featured in this issue. You can find that essay in my lecture notes entitled "One Hundred And One Tricks... Not Included".

youtubeI have created a YouTube channel that I will periodically be adding to. I have already uploaded quite a few videos of my acts. Once in awhile I produce videos that sort of, recap, where I have been. I will also be uploading these. Check back every once in awhile. http://www.youtube.com/user/richardforgetcanada?feature=mhum

I will also be periodically adding to a series of interviews I have done and will be doing as a constant project for my channel. It is called Richard Forget's Magic Lies and Alibis. It will feature informal chats I have done with friends and people I have worked with in show business. These interviews are purely for fun and to also get some stories on record.

Recent Highlights

I was recently featured in The Linking Ring magazine. This is a monthly magazine dedicated to the magical arts.

I was recently awarded Canadian Magician of the Year!! This took place in Vancouver, British Columbia, where I was also a guest performer at the combined Canadian Association of Magicians and Pacific Coast Association of magicians convention.

Being honoured in my own country makes this one of my most favourite awards I have ever received. I feel it is acknowledgment of what I have have managed to accomplish so far but, most importantly, it is a kick in the rear that says,"we expect you to keep moving, thinking, inventing, creating and building in the future." I also expect to live up to that promise. Pictured with me is Canadian Association of Magicians president Shawn Farquhar (all around good guy and super magician)

I'm finally making plans to start releasing a few products. At the beginning they will be in the products section of this website. Eventually they will be available on a separate website. I plan to set up a Paypal account but as of now it does not exist. My lecture notes are first to be available.

My new full length show is a constant work in progress and I am always refining and adding new pieces to it. I have assembled a great group of performers and crew. If you are legitimate agent or booker please contact me to get a full length DVD of the show. Look for tour dates etc. in the future to still be determined.

Many people have asked me why this show is entitled Magic Stripped. The reasoning behind it is simple. I am attempting to assemble a show that is more about the performance of pure magic and less about filler material. In other words what I perceive to be fluff content has been STRIPPED away. Hence the title Magic Stripped. It does NOT mean I will be taking off my clothing. Of course...that is subject to change.

I recently performed on China's largest television network on a show very similar to Dancing with Stars. The difference is that instead of dancing the celebrities were taught magic. I performed and was a judge. When I have video I will upload some to the MEDIA section.

I HAVE OTHER PROJECTS THAT I AM WORKING ON AND VERY EXCITED ABOUT. I HOPEFULLY WILL BE ABLE TO ANNOUNCE SOMETHING IN THE NEAR FUTURE. CHECK BACK FOR FURTHER DETAILS.

Best wishes,
Richard
