Steve Martin at Disneyland - Plus his hilarious magic act

Let's have a little bit of magic, today. You all know the DL Magic Shop at Disneyland, and you all know Steve Martin, right? Well, Steve Martin is now a world famous comedian, but when he was 10 years old he was selling guide books at Disneyland, Anaheim. And later, he worked in Main Street's Magic shop as you can see on the black and white picture below.

During Disneyland 50th anniversary celebration, Steve went back for a photo session in the magic shop and in front of the Opera house - pictures on top and below.

But Steve's love for magic didn't stop there as you will see on this youtube video where he perfoms many years later - but not at Disneyland - one of the most hilarious magic act that i - and probably, you, too - have ever seen. I found what is the trick he used in this very well done magic act, will you find it?

Have a look at the video, and have a good laugh!

I remember buying a magic ring trick from Steve Martin in the Main Street Magic Shop although I didn't know it was him until many years later. He demonstrated and performed the trick very well. I still have them in fact.
