While at the 46th annual 4F convention, I watched Kieron Johnson perform in the British Gala. His style was...well, different. I thought he might have an interesting story. As it happened, one of the Friends of The Magic Word (thanks, Michael Trixx) contacted me to ask if I would chat with Kieron. Michael was impressed with Kieron's Penguin lecture and thought it might make for an interesting interview I did, and that led to this longer interview. He impressed the magicians at the 4F with his "steaming cup of tea" production and "signed card in block of ice" effects, so I thought he was certainly worth a closer look. But as the chat evolved, we got into his strange and unusual ability: regurgitation.
All I can say is that this interview may be a hard podcast to swallow...pun intended. For you see, Kieron is not only a magician, but also a regurgitator. You are forewarned! this could get a little too weird for some listeners. But if you are a fan of Ricky Jay's book, "Learned Pigs and Fireproof Women", then this might be for you.
