Gerard Majax
BornGérard Faier
April 28, 1943


Gérard Majax (April 28, 1943), born Gérard Faier, is a French illusionist and skeptic. He also does a pickpocket act and gambling demonstrations.


He has appeared in television programs, magic demonstrations and movies.

From 1987 until 2002 he, along with Jacques Théodore and Henri Broch of the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis, oversaw the International Zetetic Challenge.

During the 1990s, on a late night television show by Thierry Ardisson, Majax gave a demo of the "rotating table" supernatural phenomenon: a group of "randomly" selected people from the audience stood around a round table, put their hands on it, and the table went up and started rotating.

Gerard did the entire opening credits with Card Flourishes and Color Changes to the movie "The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe".
