Roy Raphaelis style of magic differs from the big magicians on stage in Las Vegas in that everything is performed right in front of the spectators eyes. Unlike the big magic shows, there are no expensive props, actors, pyrotechnics, smoke, mirrors, or assistants. “People are just so amazed when a trick is done right in their own hands. They don’t have to be in their seats 20 feet away. That is what I consider magic.”
