Our Improvised Story Deck got props on – Pretty Cool huh?

Closing night of the Close up Gallery at the Melbourne Magic Festival 2012, Nicholas J Johnson, Bayden Hammond & I (Nick Kesidis) thought it would be fun to attempt an impromptu story deck where the cards were shuffled by a spectator, dealt into 4 piles & we make up a story off the top of their heads.

It got such a great response from the folks who saw it at the festival that I put the video on my YouTube Channel “nickthebubblemagic” & since then has made it to For those of you who haven’t seen it yet please click here or scope out the videos on the “Video Page” & on my YouTube Channel.

Herald Sun – Cruisy life is on the cards for one magician

Nick Kesidis with Nathan Ernists
GIVING up the ciggies two years ago gave Nick Kesidis more than just a better bill of health – it introduced him to the wonderful world of magic.
To keep his hands busy, the 27-year-old from Clifton Hill started carrying around a deck of cards and became so adept at sleight-of-hand magic he has made a career out of it.He’s debuting his comedy-based magic show Nick Kesidis is One Lonely Guy at the Melbourne Magic Festival, which runs until July 14 at the Northcote Town Hall.”The premise is that there’s some magicians who are handsome, experienced and have a pretty girl they put in boxes and make vanish, whereas my outlook is that magic’s a bit of a geeky thing,” he says.”Most magicians are part of the science club, and instead of being out and about drinking on Friday and Saturday nights, we’re home with a pack of cards working on our craft.”

But don’t feel sorry for Kesidis. He quit his “boring” corporate job to focus on magic and he’s on his way to achieving his dream of performing on cruise ships.
