Did you see the Faust the Magician on Four Rooms at the weekend?

Who is Faust?

Faust was the first illusionist to present a big illusion show including a carefully planned theme and logical sequence leaving the audience in awe. He has travelled around the world an impressive 7 times showcasing this 2 hour Illusion show but was made most famous for one spectacular trick ‘find the lady’ in the 1960s.

Find the Lady

‘Find the Lady’ trick is similar to one you might have seen performed in a street magic performance; using 3 cups and one ball it tests your ability to guess which cup hides the ball. Faust took this format and transformed it into his own jaw dropping sequence using a real life lady instead of the ball and giant size playing cards instead of the cups.

Faust owns this magic trick and has held sole performing rights throughout the entire world for this illusion since 1960.  Meaning that if any other magician presents an illusion using three very large cards, three stools and a lady disappearing and reappearing is liable for a legal “passing off”.

About Four Rooms

Four Rooms is a Channel 4 Programme that gives people the chance to have their personal items evaluated by some of the country’s leading dealers. Believing that their item for sale is a valuable artefact they will have to make a decision on which one of the four offers from the four different rooms they take – if any. However once they leave a room they cannot go back, the pressure is most definitely on. Faust appeared on the show on Sunday with the intention of selling his world famous magic trick ‘Find the Lady’ however as no one offered him the right price he walked away without selling.

Has anyone bought the trick yet?

After turning down the offers from the experts on Four Rooms ‘Find the Lady’ is still up for sale including the performing rights for the trick as well as the original equipment used. The illusion brings great laughter and bewilderment to the stage and its audience so it’s thought that it will be sold for a considerable amount of money.
