BANGALORE, JUNE 13: Pravin Tulpule a.k.a. Mysto Pintoconducted the first Expert Magic Session at The Magic Space on Saturday, June 7, 2008. The 25-seat session played to a full-house, with magicians from Bangalore, Mysore, and other nearby areas attending this interesting session on Clowning and Comedy Magic.
Appearing in the guise of an auguste clown, Mysto Pinto shared some of the basic aspects of clowning, and fielded questions on the topic from the gathered audience.
The session itself was more focussed on using comedy in magic, and Pinto explained that quite well by sharing his personal pet presentations. Many of these were about the varying kind of gags and puns that play well for child and adult audiences.
Pick a card (that promptly jumped out to be picked!), the flying rubber chicken (that picks the selected card along with some other things!), The Vanishing Onion (Did it finally vanish?!), The tear and restored (almost!) newspaper, were some of the memorable and rib-tickling effects performed and elucidated upon by Mysto Pinto.
The evening began with Prahlad Acharya welcoming the gathering and introducing the session, and concluded with a vote of thanks byNakul Shenoy, and a home-cooked dinner that was relished by all the participants.
