Max Malini Memorabilia Collection

In his landmark book, Learned Pigs and Fireproof Women, Ricky Jay devoted a chapter to my favorite magician Max Malini. When I heard the news that Ricky had died (or as he might have put it “joined the silent majority”), I recalled that my initial exposure to Malini and his escapades were contained in that book. If […]

Al Hirschfeld’s magicians – UPDATED

I have fond memories of Sunday mornings as a boy, searching the Arts page of the NY Times for the “Nina’s” hidden in Al Hirschfeld’s illustrations. It was a clever game of hide-and-go-seek, since Hirschfeld hid his daughter’s name so well, and in such whimsically obscure spots – in the folds of a coat sleeve, […]

Copperfield, Tamariz, Derren Brown, Teller (and more) on Chamber Magic®

Since I began performing “Chamber Magic” at the Waldorf Astoria 15 years ago, many of the world’s top magicians have visited me during their trips to New York. It is always an honor to look into the audience and see my personal heroes looking back!

Here are some quotes from names you’ll be sure to recognize: David Copperfield, Juan Tamariz, Derren Brown, Andy Nyman, Teller, Siegfried, Eugene Burger, Jeff McBride, John Carney, Richard Kaufman, Roberto Giobbi, Dick Cavett, Patrick Page, Derek DelGaudio, Jon Racherbaumer, Simon Aronson, David Ben, Levent, Daryl, David Regal, Milt Larsen, Dani DaOrtiz, Richard Wiseman, Ken Weber, Harry Lorayne, Pit Hartling, and David Berglas.

“A masterful performance. You can’t write a show like this. It can only come from performing night after night, listening to the audience. I loved it.” – DAVID COPPERFIELD

“I loved your act at the Waldorf-Astoria – especially the elegant atmosphere and classical style of the performance, not to mention the very strong magic!” – JUAN TAMARIZ

“Aside from his success, it is Steve’s charm and elegance which separate him from all but a tiny elite of world-class magicians. However, Steve is the only magician from that elite and highly-select group to take his show to an elite and highly-select audience. It is a true one-off: an intimate caprice of parlour diversion by an enthralling and consummate master.” – DERREN BROWN

Grand Unveiling of Joachim Marx Painting

Portrait artists often labor to look past their subject’s appearance in an attempt to discover the human inside. I was approached by German painter Joachim Marx in October 2017, requesting me to be the subject of his next major project. He wanted to paint a life-size portrait of me for an annual competition sponsored by […]
