Thorsten Strotmann Live this Week

Thorsten-StrotmannWe received email word that German Magician Thorsten Strotmann will be live on SWR television this Tuesday from 7:25 to 7:45 pm (European Time).

Curiously, Mr. Strotmann writes that viewers of the show should “pay attention to the onion!”

We think we translated that correctly.

Mr. Strotmann is well-known for his close-up work as well as his Strotmann Magic Lounge in Baden-Württemberg (Southern Germany, near Stuttgart).

Check out Mr. Strotmann’s web site to learn more about this close-up magic showcase and his upcoming run of shows scheduled for October, 2009.

You can get a taste of his excellent work by checking out a couple of the videos posted on his site here.

You may recall Mr. Strotmann received great coverage for his blindfold drive along a precarious mountain road in Austria.

We reported in advance of the stunt.  The fact that he is going to be on television this week tells us that he was successful.

You can check out Thorsten’s very cool website. It has also been put into the Inside Magic Links of Fame.

We wish him the best of luck on this ride and we can tell from the publicity he is already getting.

After all, we heard about here in Mystic Hollow, Michigan and we only get two channels on TV (both C-SPAN) — that it will likely be a big success.
