Veteran magician and magic store owner Denny Haney has influenced many up and coming magicians over the years, including Scott Alexander and Malcolm Puckering. The two younger magicians originally met each other in the orbit of Haney's store in Baltimore and have worked with each other both on their individual acts and increasingly as partners, including a recent appearance on Penn & Teller: Fool Us. Here Denny, Scott, and Puck chat about their interconnecting careers, Scott and Puck's process of getting their performances together for America's Got Talent, the state of magic today, and the state of magic retail (The Denny & Lee Magic Studio continues as a brick and mortar hub for magic in the Baltimore community at a time when these types of local resources are becoming harder to find).
The interview was conducted backstage at the Queens Theatre in New York where the three magicians were about to take the stage for the Salute to Magic, the annual show presented by the Parent Assembly of the Society of American Magicians.
