Ireland’s Keith Barry has had quite a year.
The International Magicians Society gave him the coveted Merlin Award as Mentalist of the Year, he had a great run at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, signed a four-year multi-special deal with CBS, and is getting ready for his newest tour.
How hot is Keith Barry today?
So hot that The Ulster Herald covered the performer’s decision to visit Omagh, in Northern Ireland.
We see that kind rarely; very rarely.
In fact David Copperfield seems to be the only other magician who get favorable press just for announcing a particular town or venue is on his upcoming show schedule.
The Herald explains that since winning the Merlin, “demand for Keith’s performances have gone through the roof, resulting in many more dates being added all over Ireland in September.”
You may recall his latest stunt – also well-publicized – was to cure ten volunteers of their flying phobia.
He announced his newest tour will include “a compilation of brand new never-been-seen before mind illusions, created especially for Irish audiences.”
