I thought I would start my new Jody Magician Blog by sharing with you the most unusual and bizarre – Hire a Magician – enquiry that I have ever had.
Earlier this year, I had an enquiry… A gentleman asking me if I did “black magic”! Apparently he was experiencing relationship difficulties and wanted to use Sorcery to win his loved one back. I explained that I was a man of science and reason and did not believe Witchcraft was perhaps the most efficient or indeed principled way forward. I highlighted the fact that I entertained clients with a combination of comedy wedding magic, party magic or corporate magic! All the books, DVD’s and resources that I had learned from over the years never once mentioned some dark force of nature… only clever techniques of conjuring and misdirection.
However, being the good Samaritan that I am, I tried to be empathetic and offer some words of wisdom… whilst trying hard not to laugh too much.
It did sound like a genuine call and if it was, then I hope I was helpful and wish him all the best. If it was a prank call… well… I hope I get to hear it one day because that was funny!
A magician friend of mine said to me that I should have said, “Wire me £400 and I’ll see what I can do!” Personally, I think this was totally unreasonable…. should have been, £500!
