DOC EASON IS SOLD ON MAGIC

Doc Eason is known today as one of the premier bar and close-up magicians in the Magic. The Aspen Times recently published a profile on Doc as he prepared for a run at the Stonbridge in Snowmass Vilage, Colorado. Doc talks about the philosophical similarities between selling and magic and remembers the now famous Tower Magic Bar.

"My style of magic doesn't emphasize the tricks so much. My magic doesn't happen at the end of my arms. It happens in the space between us as humans. Magic is how you connect with people. And once you connect with them, you can sell them anything. A salesman can't necessarily shuffle cards. But the psychology is very similar — the clever use of words, using words to enhance the effect."
