Two Kids from a Magic Shop

Wayne Houchin and some weirdo


Wayne Houchin and I grew up going to the same magic shop — Grand Illusions in Sacramento, California. We aren’t officially kids anymore, but we still go to the Johnson family’s store. In early November, I had the privilege of creating a full evening of magic in which Wayne, his wife Frania, and Steve Johnson (who continues to nurture our love of magic) all performed. Here is a brief clip of Frania performing an upside-down straitjacket escape as part of that event. We’ve come a long way from being those kids in Steve’s shop. But in many ways, we never left.
