Can-Am Lecture Series: Rudy Coby – November 18th

Just a brief reminder that the next lecture in the Can-Am Lecture Series will be Rudy Coby on Sunday, November 18th @ 2:00pm. It will be held at Langford Firehall #2. You read that correctly, a Sunday afternoon lecture!

The lecture is $40 to attend, but if you are a member-in-good-standing, you will get in at 50% off! That’s only $20! What a steal! 🙂 Membership certainly has its privileges.

If you’re unfamiliar with Rudy’s work, take a look at some of his work on YouTube at this link. And even if you don’t think it’s your style, it’s worth attending the lecture as you will always learn something or at minimum be entertained for an afternoon.

The next monthly meeting is only two days later on November 20th and you don’t want to hear about how awesome the lecture was at the meeting, whilst wishing you had gone.

Be there or be a dodecahedron!

November Round Table

The next Round Table is upon us and will be held on Sunday, November 4th at Quality Foods in View Royal. 1-3pm. Remember there’s a time change this weekend.

110-27 Helmcken Rd. across from Victoria General Hospital

Take the stairs or elevator across from the deli counter where you order Chinese take out. When you get to the second floor, turn left off the stairs or right off the elevator and you will see the meeting room (just past the Starbucks coffee bar).

Bring some magic you’d like to share or work on. See you then!

November 18th Rudy Coby Lecture

Rudy Coby is the next Can-Am Lecture Series lecturer who will be visiting the Victoria Magic Circle. Please note that this lecture will happen on Sunday, November 18th instead of our usual Saturday because he’s performing at some gig in Mission the night before (Yes, I’m looking at you, Norden! 😉 ).

If you’re unfamiliar with Rudy’s work, read the promo below and see some of his work on YouTube at this link.

Even if you think it’s not your style, keep in mind it’s worth attending the lecture as you *will* learn something you can use and at minimum be entertained for an evening.

With that said, take it away, promo guy…

Rudy Coby, also known as “Labman”, is one of the most creative and bizarre comedic magicians working today.

In the early 1990s, Coby appeared in several small theatrical live shows, and on broadcast television, where he delivered two unforgettable specials, “Rudy Coby: Coolest Magician on Earth,” and “Rudy Coby: Ridiculously Dangerous.” He is known for delivering eclectic and original comedic performances, of which stage magic plays a large part. He also works closely with rock musician and film director Marilyn Manson.

In the mid-1990s, Coby and his troupe of illusionist comrades performed in the Gem Theatre in downtown Detroit for an unprecedented thirteen weeks, thanks to his impressive cult following, and overwhelmingly positive local media support.

After a hiatus of 14 years, Coby returned to performing in 2009, including a well-received twelve-week run at the Galaxy Theater at Valleyfair, a theme park in Minneapolis. In 2012, he performed on the YouTube episode of America’s Got Talent during its seventh season, but did not advance to the semifinals.

Currently a resident of Las Vegas, and member of the Magic Castle in Los Angeles, Rudy now joins the Can-Am Conjuring Lecture Series, as a finale to our 2018 season.
