Patrik Kuffs.gif

Patrik Kuffs is a magician, mentalist, author and lecturer from Montreal, Canada who has appeared many times on some of the country's highest rated French-language television shows. (Juste Pour Rire, Le Grand Rire Bleu, Ad Lib, etc.)

In 2000, he made his English-language television debut (with David Acer and Richard Sanders) on a "street magic" special for Global TV called Urban Magic, and later appeared on an episode of a children's science series called Popular Mechanics for Kids. More recently, he has engaged in a series of extended runs for his one-man mentalism show at several upscale Montreal venues, and a book of tricks he wrote for the public (in French) called Psychomagie was published in 2003.

Kuffs has also released three lecture DVDs for magicians - Metal Bending: The Real Work (produced by the Camirand Academy of Magic), Mind Stunts and Mind Stunts II (both self-produced), and a smattering of his original material has appeared in Lee Earle's Syzygy, Banachek's Psychological Subtleties 2, John Lovick's Switch, Robert Cassidy’s Quintessence, David Acer's Random Acts of Magic, Genii magazine and MAGIC. In addition, a small booklet of his magic called Seven by Patrik Kuffs was published in 2004.

In 2008, with magician Stéphane Bourgoin, Kuffs co-founded Quebecmagik, a private magic club and store in Laval, Quebec (just north of Montreal). The club has since closed.

In 2010, Kuffs became a columnist for Genii magazine, with the series projected to run intermittently through 2011. Its debut in the May, 2010 issue featured a unique version of The Berglas Effect called Any Card at Any Numbered Envelope. The second installment featured an on-the-floor handling for the classic Brainwave plot wherein the spectator uses his or her feet to choose a card, and the third offering was an unusual spin-off of David Hoy's Tossed-Out-Deck plot called The Tossed Out Rubik's Cube.
