Who is he?
Michel Huot is Montreal’s busiest corporate magician. He has been doing corporate magic for the past 20 years. He did not received a magic kit when he was 6. He started at age 23, years after seeing a magician at an event. Michel was dealing with personal issues at the time (the death of his mother and father) and realized that time stopped while he was being entertained by the magician. He did not think about his parents for the 10 minutes the magician was there. For him, THAT was the magic. The next day Michel had bought a copy of Mark Wilson’s course in Magic.
He then created a Siamese twin act with a friend that won them the People’s Choice award in a magic contest in Montreal in 1998. He presented that act at FFFF in 1999 and has been invited back ever since. He also two other FFFF favorites – The Human Deck of Cards (with Yannick Lacroix) and UPSIDE/DOWN (with Patrice Meunier and Yannick Lacroix). The 2 acts received well deserved standing ovations.
His creations appeared in MAGIC, GENII, David Acer’s Natural Selections II, MONEY (John Lovick), Mentalism for Kids (Paul Rohmany), The Magic Menu (Jim Sisti) and so on.
He performed at more than 20 shows at Montreal’s prestigious JUST FOR LAUGHS comedy festival, and is a regular invitee at the COMEDY NEST (now owned by David Acer) in Montreal.
Michel also co-organizes an international magic festival in Algeria for the past 5 years. Some of the guests were David Sousa, Soma Jordan Gomez, George Saterial, Leon Etienne, and Ouka.
But above all that, Michel loves to come back to his corporate gigs where he entertains people and, for an instant, he makes time stop!
In this lecture, Michel focuses on commercial magic. Everything is usable. And, you will hear some incredible stories and tips on performing in the real world!
