As always, the vanishing Inc crew prove why they should be the one stop shopping location for magicians of all levels.
(Btw, immediately after my previous post, the video was fixed, and I was contacted. Everything these guys do, offer, introduce, etc., is top notch. My experience is that if it's not up to VI standards, it's not bashed...it's just omitted. The focus is always on providing top quality across the board, instead of wasting everyone's time on pointing out what isn't.)
Okay, now that I've gotten that out of my system, let me add my review of Rune.
He's really a jack of most entertainment trades.
I prefer to watch his small crowd work, but this clip gives a glimpse of how the man really does think outside of the box.
If this is his approach to a larger crowd, then it is a fair representation of his presence at every level of his craft.
Nontraditional, but amazing. Self depreciating for a laugh...anything for a laugh..while still showing his superior skills, and teaching abilities humbly.
His explanations are so relaxed, that even when he is explaining a difficult, original, bizarre, presentation, you feel at ease, and are doing it before you know it.
He is the type of performer who will leave you rewatching his effects, long after you've gotten the foundations down, just because he's fun, and you can find "just one more thing" with every viewing.
Bottom line. (Finally!)
The guys a hoot!
And a person who has created his own niche in the community that fills a void I never thought was even there.
This clip is more of a glimpse of his creativity, and a subtle warning as to what to expect should you precede. Do so with a supply of Prozac handy ;)
His material alone, aside from the "zany" way HE chooses to promote it, might not work for you, or me, but is all adaptable to any stage persona we adapt once we have the victim (s) in front of us.
And if you're concerned with his English, anyone who's been exposed to him from Joshua's DVD's realizes that his command of the language is more than passable.
Rune is still basically unknown in the US.
I look forward to that day, coming soon, when Joshua, and this tight circle show the world just how amazingly talented they all are.
We're all in for a giant treat when that happens.
The only ones who may not like the emergence of this troupe, are certain others that are in the spotlight right now.
I'm sensing my soapbox just got kicked out from under me by the staff here, so I'll reel it in.
Rune is great. Check him out.
Get past is sense of humor if you don't like it, (I didn't at first), and look at what he is doing.
You are guaranteed to walk away a fan, and as a performer you'll have a few new additions to your set.
Continued good luck to Rune, and the VI family!
