We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

I think that's the one. Great enertainer, but would also make a great ad for not smoking and yes, I am one of the demons who still do!
Was this legitimate in what we saw was performed as it happened?
I'm sure in person he would be good and entertaining, but
unless the camera gave CONSTANT coverage so we can watch
with out him being off camera when looking at the woman and
break away, as when we see him and hear him and the camera breaks away and when it returns he is in the middle of a cigarette. He could have done alot of things , as I'm sure he did, when not on camera
With the cards- clever.
With the smokes - disgusting and boring

you found the cigarette smoking/swallowing card trickster stupid?
seems like everyone else found it amazing/entertaining.
no one, except you, found it stupid!
it's like when you're playing poker, and you look around the table trying to figure out who the fish is..... IT'S YOU!
What part of .... Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for ...do you not understand???
majic was fantastic. jeroldine,,,,remember ...stupid is what stupid does, if the shoe fits wear it ,and I believe it fits you just right . Whatever knocks your socks off BYE!!!!!!!!!
you missed the point dumb ass, it wasnt about smoking. it was a trick, why dont u try just try 3 at one one time if u think its easy.
My personal feeling is to say "So what if your tied of anything"? however my professional side believes you have a deep seated problem and I would like to assist you I specialize with depression and I would I be too glad to assist you.
Now back to the magician; I believe this man to be very talented, I have never seen or heard of him before however, he is a "brilliant magician". To perform in such a way is very ,very clever and I for one would like to see more of him. As much as I treat many, many patients suffering with the aftermath of smoking, one still has to maintain a level of humor or risk falling further into depression. Top marks!!!!
I thought it was absolutely brilliant Wonder, though, how his lungs are taking it. Joe Wright.
how can he do that ,he maes me gag and I smoke a cigar once in a while
I know what you mean. I smoke too but he was making me gag too!
INTERESTING ARRAY OF CHOICES. LOOKING FORWARD TO CHECKING THEM OUT. LINZIE
What a trick, with lots of humour, very entertaining! :)
Let us keep in mind that cigarette smoking is bad for one's health!
I used to do card tricks but he still amazed me. I think being able to speak in different voices is a real skill.
Even though I used to do card tricks these people still amaze me. Very entertaining and requires a lot of practice on their part.
I know this guy!!! He used to work for the UAW in Anarbor, Michigan. That was before his real job wnet overseas to china. Luckily he had a skill he could fall back on.
Never seen Roger de Hautville before.
But, the trick(s) and the banter were superb!
An excellent performance.
I don't think this guy is going to last too long if he keeps up with this smoking bit.
This guy is different, unusual, and highly entertaining. Definitely worth seeing. There is the standard card trick in the beginning, but just wait until he pulls out his cigarettes.
realy lost me
how good is that
the best i have ever seen
Just before he starts to shuffle the cards, he flips her card onto the floor and then near the end you see him bending over while she counts the cards. That is when he picks up her card, folds it and then into his mouth. Quite simple and esy to do as is the cigarette illusion.
My husband and I would go to Tomfoolery's in Buckhead (Atlanta) in the 70,s to see him all the time. He hasn't aged a bit and my husband has been dead for 20 years. Kidney Cancer. Don't smoke. Where is this guy now?
it made me gag but I have bad gag reflux. this is great cant stand all these people who say remember smoking is bad or u should do this or do that OR everyone should win and there r no losers. Get over it!! there r winners and losers and bad habits and comedy. stop being so judgemental on crap, live life and dont judge people according to the way u live your life. have a great day and may the best person or team win
Interesting show, but very easy trick. He palms the card while he is shuffling and keeps it hidden in his sleeve or lap. when he drops the marker, he folds it up and palms it again. He sticks the card in his mouth with all the napkins.
If that didn't make you laugh nothing will...Very entertaining
this guy did surgery operation to makes his hands bigger that he could hide card easly. old trick ;)
Good sleight of hand anf mouth. Wonder what he did while picking up dropped articles and was under the table
I haven't had my breakfast yet and now I don't know if I can eat! He obviously squeezed the hot ash off the top of each cigarette before he threw it in his mouth, but the rest of them?
Thanks for sharing though; now I'm running to the bathroom to hurl.
TOM MULLICA IS AN EXCELLENT INTRO, FOR ME, TO MAGGIES'S THOUGHT PROVOKING FARM. THE INTERNET RULES!!
LOOK FORWARD TO REVIEWING ALL THE CATEGORIES AND KEEPING IT REAL
It's interesting that in that time period he could pick a random member of the audience knowing that he could sit there just a foot or two away from her and smoke a whole pack of cigarettes without any concern that she'd suddenly collapse in a fit -- or even show any hint of discomfort. The extreme reactions we see today from smoke at much MUCH lower levels are more psychogenic than physiological.
Fantastic, Kept me busy watching the various very entertaining mouth tricks, cigarette tricks and then the finally, the card trick.
His patter also entertained.
This is gross. We're trying to get people to stop smoking and this character is puffing like a coal fired engine
I've Seen Him Before Do Just The Cigarette Trick Several Years Ago But Not The Card One .Never Knew His Name Before This Video ,Thanks .I Wonder If Criss Angel Could Top This One ?
I noticed there is a code at the bottom of "comments" to prevent spam. Then I realized every comment he actually IS spam.
Wow that guy was awesome! What a great comedienne. I wish that girl responded a little more...Very entertaining.
