“Brother John Hamman leads you down the garden path to the exact spot where he wants you and then, he turns on the sprinkler.”
As master of the O’Henry story, Brother John baffles laypeople and magicians with fresh plots and clever methods. To even the keenest observer, his card manipulations pass unnoticed. Yet no audience escapes the delight in watching him turn impossibility into reality.
Ironically, Brother John insists that magic happens not in the hands of the performer, but in the minds of spectator. If you’ve never watched him, you’ll soon see why his style and thinking gained the respect of celebrated magician Fred Kaps. If you’ve experienced of his rare performances, you know why Kaps held him in such high regard.
