L. C. Collier

LC Collier was born in California, but lived in Kansas City most of his life. While working for an attorney’s office, in 1984, he wrote an article for their newsletter about some employees who were moonlighting as clowns. In doing the research for the article he became swept up in it and hired them to perform at his daughter’s birthday party. Right before the party the main clown had a stroke! He couldn’t disappoint the twenty-three guests that were coming, so he went out and bought make-up and did the show himself. It was awful, but he fell in love with magic. He played a clown for about a year, but hated the make-up started getting more and more into the magic. Magic took over his life and a little over a year later he sold his business (a collection agency) and became a full time magician.

In his first four years of performing he won two international magic contests, and won the I.B.M. Ring 129 Stage Magician of the Year twice with a dove act. He went on to win over 10 magic competitions with other acts during his 21 years as a professional magician and was runner up countless times. He loved magic competition because he believed the work involved in preparing for them made him a better magician. He was highly involved with the local SAM and IBM magic clubs and served as president and held various other board positions during his many years of active involvement in the clubs. At one time he acted as the Society of American Magicians special appointed liaison with the International Brotherhood of Magicians.

L.C. was not only a fine performer but a talented craftsman, before his involvement in magic he was an accomplished painter, designed and made jewelry, and carved wooden statues. He used those skills and others to build some of the finest magic props through his company Poof Products. Many of his props were sold in countries all over the world.

While skilled at both close-up and stage magic, L.C. enjoyed performing on stage more than anything else. He was a performer that left nothing to chance, his routines were planned and scripted but always come across as fresh and spontaneous. The real magic was how he connected with an audience. Those who saw him perform knew he was a real magician, not only on the stage but in day to day activities he brought joy to others. His funeral was a true testament to the kind of man he was. It was standing room only and included waiters/waitresses of restaurants he frequented, cashiers of local shops, past clients, peers and friends, some came from hundreds of miles away because of the impact he made on their lives.

The booklets available on this website were all written after many years of refinement and are the result of real world experience. A few of the booklets include all the details of his award winning, reputation making routines and others offer practical performance advice. There is no fluff in these books, just professional material that you and your audience will enjoy!

Full Circle Rope Routine by L. C. CollierThe magician pulls out a six foot piece of rope, pulls it up in the center and clearly cuts the rope into two pieces. He then picks up the bottom ends, brings them to the top and the rope fully restores. He then grabs the rope by the middle and cuts it in half again. He trims off the pieces at the top and the rope restores a second time.

He folds the rope into thirds and cuts it at the top and bottom. He clearly counts off the three separate and equal pieces from one hand to the other. With all the pieces held in one hand he brings the bottom ends to the top and individually pulls out three...

What is a Stage and How Do I Use It? by L. C. CollierThis publication is intended to give you a general working knowledge of the parts of a stage and how to use them. It covers stage construction, stage terminology, lighting and cue sheets. This will give you a nutshell version of subjects that would normally take three book volumes to cover.

A general working knowledge will help you present your act in the best possible way. Most of the legitimate theaters require union workers to run the theater. They appreciate it when you know what you want, what their facility has to offer and how to ask for it.

Big Ring on String by L. C. CollierA parlor sized ring with a stage sized routine.

This is a compact ring and string routine which uses some of the most visual moves one can do with these props. For many years I have performed a very similar routine. I used a red cotton ribbon instead of the standard white rope, because a ribbon lies flat on the ring and is wider than a rope allowing for some sequences a stronger illusion.
