Daryl (1955-2017) was the professional name of Daryl Easton, formerly Daryl Martinez, an American magician based in Las Vegas. He was known as "The Magician's Magician."
Daryl went by his forename only and specialized in card tricks, close-up and parlor magic. Two of his most famous contributions to magic were 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. 
He was 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, "Fooler Doolers", and Daryl's Ambitious Card Video.
