It's an illuuuuuuuuusion -- changing magic forever
21 May 2005 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Doug Henning was so popular, I think most people would be surprised to know he is dead. Prior to Doug, magicians wore tuxedos and bow ties, and they pulled flowers out of their sleeves. Single-handedly, Henning changed all this. He had long, curly hair, colorful outfits, and a different term for his profession: He was an illusionist. When someone wants to impersonate Henning, they will put a bright look on their face, look directly at you, and exclaim, "It's an illuuuuuusion." After several years and popular specials, he left the day-to-day magic profession and became a religious figure in Great Britain. Their group achieves a higher state by sitting cross-legged and bouncing on cushions across rooms.
