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...

Roly-Poly by Devin Knight

Roly-Poly is one of the most commercial close-up tricks you can do, it is quick and easy to do. It's perfect when you have less than a minute to impress someone. I used this effect in my strolling restaurant gig for over seven years. This often got better response than some of my other effects. Kids love to watch this, and it always generates smiles and laughter. This was taught during my 2010 lecture tour and was well received by the magicians in attendance.

The effect is that you show an ungimmicked quarter (any quarter size coin can be used in foreign countries). You start rubbing the...
