Daryl (born August 13, 1955) is the professional name of Daryl Easton, formerly Daryl Martinez, an American magician based in Las Vegas. In his marketing he uses the self-proclaimed title of "The Magician's Magician."
August 13, 1955
He specializes in card tricks, close-up and parlor magic. Two of his most famous contributions to magic are the Hot Shot Cut*, a knuckle-busting sleight where the spectator's chosen card spins like a boomerang out of the deck, and the Ultimate Ambition* trick which allows a card to be inserted fairly into the middle of a deck and yet appear back on top.
Daryl has won the gold medal at the FISM magic world championship in Card Magic for his ambitious card routine.
He is well known to magicians as the presenter of many teach-in video series for L&L Publishing, including Daryl's Card Revelations, Encyclopedia of Card Sleights, FoolerDoolers, and Daryl's Ambitious Card Video.
His wife, Alison Easton, was the first woman to be inducted into The Magic Circle.
Daryl usually goes by his forename only.
