No Comments

I know everyone says it, but time sure does fly! Back in 2010 when I heard that Greg Frewin was going to receive the Magician of the Year award ad the World Magic Awards, I contacted my father-in-law to record it for me.

I checked on YouTube, and it doesn’t look like anyone has posted it, so here, for your viewing pleasure, is the 2010 World Magic Awards. Despite the poor quality, that magic is pretty exceptional. There are many different acts, and then Greg Frewin finishes the show.
