Behind the Scenes – Steve Spade Escape from PortMagic

Check out the video of Steve Spade risking his life in Portrush! It was fantastic to consult on such a huge and dangerous stunt in Northern Ireland. Subcribe to my YouTube channel for more magic related content. :)

On Monday June 18th David left a prediction with PJ Coogan and the staff on The Opinion Line on Cork’s 96fm, Cork’s number 1 talk show.

On July 16th the day after the dramatic FIFA World Cup Final David returned to the show. Live on the air the box was opened and inside was the envelope PJ had signed 4 weeks earlier.

Today I was on The Opinion Line with PJ Coogan on Cork’s 96fm. I was invited on the show to see if I could predict anything about the World Cup.

Over the last few days I had been looking at the matches and all the stats I could find. I made predictions about what I thought would happen and I sealed them in an envelope. To ensure nothing would happen to the envelope I have PJ signed his name across the seal and it was placed in a metal box and was sealed with a padlock. (Box can be seen on my Facebook

They keep the box and I keep the key so there will be no peeking. Now I wait!

Last week I went to see Derren Brown Underground in Cork Opera House, Firstly, the show was outstanding! Watching a show like this is incredibly inspiring and I now have the itch to do a new show (watch this space). Also during the show the Cork audience did something that Derren has never seen happen before. During the show Derren invited a few men on stage and as they got on stage they introduced themselves to each other and shook hands. Derren had already been on twitter to declare his love for Cork and the people but this took it to another level for him.

Apparently I’m not allowed to stay and live in or around Cork for the rest of my life because I have ‘responsibilities’ back home. Goodbye then Cork, lovely people, it hurts to leave. – Derren Brown

On Sunday May 27th I did the most dangerous thing I have ever done!

Over the past few weeks I worked as a consultant for Limerick Magician Steve Spade on his Blindfold Drive Stunt. On the day Steve amazingly drove blindfolded around an obstacle course, which I had laid out at Limerick Race Course, as a member of the public was allowed to broadcast the entire experience via Facebook Live from the passenger seat.

On Monday Feb 19th Don’t Tell The Bride on RTE2 had one of its best ever episodes starring Brendán and Victor. Laughing, crying and a whole lot of dancing; it had it all. What made it even more special for me was that I was there!

Being a Harry Potter themed wedding Brendán reached out to me to add a bit of magic to the wedding which I was happy to do. While Brendán showed Victor how he turned a big green hall into Hogwarts, I got to entertain his guests at the drinks reception. Wandering around everyone was in great spirits and really enjoying the day.
