Bearwin Meily Does Mondo Magic Filipino Style.

 

Funny (and Now Magic) Man, Bearwin Meily

Bearwin Meily is a comedian/magician and together with young illusionists headed by Erik Mana, will take on the world of magic in a guerrilla way on NAKS! (?Nakabibilib at Kakaibang Show?). The team features Mr. Mana as well as folks known only by their first names: Ron, Ethel, Con, JB and Slydon. 

 

Mr. Meily?s inspiration is familiar to North American magicians.  “It was David Blaine?s street magic that inspired me. I practice with cards and coins everyday. I keep a deck of cards in my pocket all the time. In fact, I have even ventured into hypnosis and mind reading.?  Not too shabby for a man who was a comedian by training and has only been involved in magic for the last nine months. 

 

Mr. Meily believes the discipline necessary to perform magic has helped him be a better comedian, a better performer.  “Since magic entails speed and rapport with the audience, I?ve learned to think faster and interact better with the crowd.?

 

In a cautionary note that would likely not appear in the U.S. press, he notes that magic ?can go overboard? and he promises to never venture into ?black magic, like sorcery or witchcraft. He will never delve into something that has the telltale signs of the devil.?

 

In the show, Mr. Meily and his cohorts will visit shopping areas to locate their audience and volunteers.  Unbeknownst to the poor, innocent trickee, they will videotape ?every drop of the jaw, surprised scream or baffled look from the “victim.?
