Richard Sanders is an innovative magician and lecturer from Montreal, Canada. He first came to the attention of the international magic community through his collaborational work with Jay Sankey, a sampling of which appeared in Sankey Pankey (Kaufman, 1986). One year later, Ben Harris released an entire book of their collaborations, called When Creators Collide (Sankey/Sanders, 1987).[1]

In 1989, Sanders formed a comedy magic trio called The Running Gags with fellow magicians David Acer and Barry Julien. The group performed original, unusual, and highly interactive magic at comedy clubs and colleges, but disbanded a year later when Sanders moved to Toronto.

In 1998, after years of honing his craft at corporate shows, trade shows, and on cruise ships, Sanders released a ten-trick booklet through the Camirand Academy of Magic called Close-Up Assassin, written by David Acer. The booklet was packaged with a performance-only companion video and is now considered a collector's item. Other popular one-trick releases through the Academy followed—On Foot, Picture This and Three Ropes and a Baby—but more recently, Sanders has begun to produce and market his own material, which includes Slow Burn, Interlace, Visi-Bill, Fiber Optics, and the three-volume DVD set, The Richard Sanders Show. In 2002, Sanders also renewed his collaborational efforts with Jay Sankey, resulting in the two-volume DVD set, The Sankey/Sanders Sessions.

Miscellaneous Sanders material has also appeared in Genii Magazine, MAGIC, New Directions, The Magical Arts Journal, The Magic Menu, 100% Sankey, John Lovick's monumental book, Switch, and in two of David Acer’s books—Natural Selections (1996) and Random Acts of Magic (2004). One of his more recent innovations, a striking bill-change called Extreme Burn, was performed by David Blaine on ABC television ("Dive of Death," September, 2008).

Sanders has also performed at The Magic Castle, lectured at F.I.S.M., and appeared many times on Canadian television, including performances on CBC’s The Magic of Canada (1995) and Global’s Urban Magic (2000).
