VHS to DVD
Eason's act, effects, presentation, audience interaction, crowd control and comedic timing are near perfection. The original video footage has aged well and the magical entertainment, as presented by Eason, is as relevant now as it was 16 years ago. Eason is always worth watching and he shows us bar magic at its best.
[Editor's Note: Eason has another DVD that profiles his bar magic, "...after all these years...."]
Knowing Your Name
Eason performs a coin trick, ambitious card, card under glass, bill in lemon, a bar bet routine, three-card monte and card on the ceiling (through the blades of a spinning ceiling fan). You'll also enjoy the numerous gags, routines and bits, and Eason's interaction with the crowd and the bartender.
Much of Eason's commentary discusses aspects of the video shoot. While Eason explains no secrets, he offers hints on the "bill in lemon" shown in the video, something that magicians constantly asked about. The last DVD extra is a slide show that displays vintage photos from the Tower and some celebrity shots.
Those who already own the VHS video may enjoy the added commentary on the DVD. But as in the past, the real joy is simply watching Eason at work.
