The Show Doctor in Action

“Indubitably, Magic is one of the subtlest and most difficult of the sciences and arts. There is more opportunity for errors of comprehension, judgment and practice than in any other branch of physics.”
— Aleister Crowley 1875-1947, British Occultist

Greetings Magical Friends,

Pictured here is Jeff, with Pamela Anderson and Hans Klok. Jeff’s reputation as “the Show Doctor,” is having a major impact on shows around Las Vegas. Recently, Hans hired Jeff on to consult on his new hit show, “The Beauty of Magic.”

If you’d like to read some tips on how you can improve your show, Jeff and Bryce Kuhlman have created The Secret Arts Journal, a free service to our readers.

Jeff was also a guest speaker for David Copperfield last week at his Project Magic conference at the MGM Grand Hotel, here in Las Vegas. Jeff’s talk at the seminar was called “Magic for Medical Professionals,” and was a highlight of the day. For more information on our annual conference for doctors who love magic, go to:

Here is a recent photo from a new book on Street Magic. Here, Jeff is shown just before he swallows a razor sharp steak knife. Tom Ogden is the author of this new book on urban conjuring, and it will be out in the Fall. For those who want to see our MCBRIDE MAGIC AT THE EDGE live, we will be on the East Coast, for the entire month of August, at the Trump Marina, in Atlantic City. For more information, go to:

Jeff will be a special guest star with Criss Angel on the upcoming TRIAL BY FIRE episode. Check your local listings for the air date. Criss told Jeff that he expects it to air “sometime in August.” Criss and Jeff are also exploring new magic for season 4. Watch for Jeff on upcoming episodes.

Next is a photo of Jeff at the Australian Society of Magicians 100th Anniversary Convention. In this photo, Shoot Ogawa, Lenart Greene, Ai, Jeff and Gaetan Bloom are shown outside the convention hall, preparing to go in and meet their fans. Jeff is looking forward to meeting all of you when we get to our next stop in Atlantic City. We always take time to meet and greet all of our friends and fans after the show.

Jeff and Eugene will be together for our August Master Class in Atlantic City. There are still two spaces available for the class. You can read more about it here:

We’ll look forward to seeing you soon!

Yours in magic,
Abbi & Jeff McBride
