Mike has always been a gent! He is, and always has been, kind, courteous and a fountain of Magic & Show Biz knowledge. And he is a great performer as well! I have known him for X years since I first bought a couple of things from him when he was 'Mr. Magic'.
We have corresponded, spoken about once on the phone but never met--yet! Years ago he shared a great secret with me which enabled me to 'perfect' my favourite effect--The Floating Ball. He even specially made up the stronger 'necessary' I needed for the large Don Wayne Floating Ball model for my Dante show in 1980.
"I have always respected him and count him amongst my few really Best Friends in the business.
Long may he reign.
