    Screenshots from “Greg Frewin Magic Man Home for the Holidays” 2009 TV Special

    I’m closer to Christmas 2010 than to Christmas 2009, but hey, better late than never…

    As many of you know, Greg Frewin had a Christmas special broadcast on CBC last December. It was called Greg Frewin Magic Man Home For The Holidays. The show was an hour long and chronicled his planning of an outdoor winter performance at Table Rock Place.

    I love to see Greg Frewin perform, so for that reason, I enjoyed the show. You saw him do several magic tricks or illusions during his stage show, in a classroom, in a restaurant, and outside. He is an amazing performer. On the other hand, it was supposed to be like a documentary or a “reality” show, and it just looked bad in the parts that were staged. There was one scene that was shot inside Elements restaurant at Table Rock Place that was particularly fake.

    The bottom line, though, is that it is always good to see Niagara Falls promoted in such a positive way. I hope it helped Greg’s business this year!

    I have taken a bunch of screenshots from the episode. You can see some of the thumbnails below, and the full versions in the Greg Frewin Magic Man Home For The Holidays (2009 TV Special) gallery.

    Note: There were 3,204 images in 251 galleries in the Niagara Falls Image Gallery at the time they were posted.

    From the Toronto Sun:

    Magicians are creepy. At least, that’s the general conclusion many of us came to during our childhoods.

    We were kind of kidding when we said that. But Greg Frewin answered the question seriously.

    “I think magic has gone through a lot of changes over the past 15 or 20 years,” said the Canadian and world-renowned magician, whose special Greg Frewin Magic Man: Home for the Holidays debuts Wednesday, Dec. 9 on CBC.

    “I think through the media, magicians like David Blaine and David Copperfield have weaved it into a cooler art form than it used to be.”
