Devin Knight

Professional Magician and Hypnotist

Devin Knight is regarded as one of magic's most prolific inventors. He is also a highly sought after lecturer for both magicians and mentalists. Most of his effects are run-away best sellers and have received rave reviews. Devin was a protege of the late Al Mann and currently works as a full-time magician and mentalist. Devin strives to create effects that not only fool magicians, but at the same time are easy to do. The majority of his effects rely more on clever ideas, rather than difficult sleights. This puts most of his effects within the skill range of most magicians.

How To Move A Mountain by Devin Knight & Al Mann

Is it possible to move a mountain, lake, shoreline or even an island? Al Mann and Devin Knight say, “Yes.” In 1995, Al Mann wrote a rare treatise on how to do just these things.

The few magicians, who read this, glossed over it, saying the ideas were impractical and pipedreams. The ideas may have been impractical for most magicians, but they were not pipedreams. Al Mann and Devin Knight explain in detail how you can do these feats, if you have the money and resources.

They explain in detail how you can get headlines in the newspapers by moving a local peninsula a mile or two away...
