Steve Dacri’s Fastest Hands Conquers Time-Space

Image of Sleight of Hand Magician Steve Dacri on Inside MagicLas Vegas Review Journal columnist extraordinaire Mike Weatherford gave a short shot out about Inside Magic Favorite Steve Dacri doing what seems to be impossible.

No, we don’t mean he performed his incredible Martian Sponge Ball routine.  Yes, the routine is easily the best and does seem impossible, but we mean something that challenges the traditional notions we share about time being linear.

Here’s the line that caught our eye:

“Magician Steve Dacri wrapped his “In Your Face” close-up magic at the Las Vegas Hilton on Monday.  He says he completed a 52-week contract in less than a year.”

That’s something, no?

We can give away the secret on this one, though.  Steve told The Review-Journal a second night was added to the weekly schedule during the run of his incredibly successful “In Your Face” close-up show at the Las Vegas Hilton recently.

Steve Dacri is a stud in this business.

Regis Philbin called him “The Fastest Hands in the World.”  He is not only fast, but sure.  There is a great clip on one of this promotional videos of him performing the aforementioned Martians routine for Merv Griffin and Tony Curtis.  Merv makes the comment that he is amazed even though he has his nose buried in Steve’s pinky ring.

Congratulations to Steve Dacri on an incredible run.  We understand he’ll be taking about a month off to perform in Florida and then return to the Hilton to a new run with more than one show each week.

We’ll be taking the Inside Magic Semi out to Vegas around the first week of November and hope he’s landed by then.

He is fun to watch whether you’re a magician or a layperson.  And if you’re a magician, he makes you feel like you’re a layman.  And that’s a good thing.
