The MAGIC ROADSHOW is the largest FREE blog in all of magic. We publish news stories, articles, and great effects from magicians around the world. Formerly, we provided subscribers with the Magic Roadshow Journal of Magic, and all these posts were combined into a PDF and a download link sent to all subscribers. Now, instead of combining all the posts, we put all our features right here. Formerly, a number of features in each Roadshow were NOT posted here, to encourage readers to open and read each issue of the Roadshow. From now on, that will NOT be the case.. and all articles, effects, and videos will be posted on this site, as we locate new material.

Magic, Street Magic, Mentalism, Mental Magic, Close Up Magic and Mathmagic.. you’ll find it all in the Roadshow! Please sign up for the Roadshow below.. and be notified about once a month of a new group of posts.  Absolutely NO spam!

There’s too much stuff (in the Roadshow).  I do have another life you know -BUT- this had the most useful stuff, magic wise, of any newsletter I have ever come across on the web.   Congratulations on a great job.”

I really love what you do and consume it voraciously..  I started getting the Roadshow about a year and a half ago and turned a bunch of other magi friends on to it. I even read ( listen to ) each issue of the Roadshow and Magic News… I am blind so I use a TTS screen reader…

As the writer of a magic newsletter myself, I am astounded at both the quantity and quality of the material that Rick manages to release on a regular basis. I salute you.”
