Event description

Description

In his follow up to the hugely popular talk on David Devant last year, Ian Keable will tell the stories of two other magicians buried in Highgate Cemetery: Colonel Stodare and Carlton the Human Hairpin. Expect humour, tricks and an insight into the methods of these two master magicians, as Ian Keable, himself a respected member of the Magic Circle, reveals all.
Colonel Stodare — self-styled — was hugely successful, performing hundreds of times at the mecca for magic shows, The Egyptian Hall. He invented the Stodare Egg, a trick still often used by magicians. He died from TB at the height of his fame.
Carlton, The Human Hairpin, was a magician famous for his comedy and for being able to alter his height at will. Ian Keable was given the Carlton Award (for comedy, not changing his height) by the Magic Circle in 2008.
