Not only can he make or improve tricks, he also is a first-rate director who, in his words, “can make your show suck a lot less.” Who is this? It is Texas’s own though now Las Vegas based Bizzaro, the Optical Illusionist making his TAOM debut (unless you count the times he competed many, many years ago). Bizzaro will be performing, presenting a lecture and generally hanging around to talk with you. He is one who is very approachable and knowledgeable. And did I say creative? Yeah really creative. An all around great guy.
You may also know of Christian as a columnist for M-U-M where he’s been writing for several years—Working in the Real World. Together they also have written a popular book on mentalism called Protoplasm. In the book, Christian talks about the transition from straight magic to mentalism. Turns out a lot of the effects he was doing had a mental aspect so why not embrace it. If you think mentalism is boring, then you haven’t seen Christian and Katalina. You will love the act and you will love them.
