Richard Aimes


Richard Aimes (fl. 1980s) worked as a professional chimney sweep in Arizona before becoming a professional magician performing as "The Magic Chimney Sweep".[1]


Aimes enrolled in law school, but after deciding it wasn't for him, he became a professional chimney sweep.

He self-taught himself magic from books as a child in Phoenix, buying his first props from Bert Easley's Magic Shop. He would later move to California and graduate from the Chavez School of Magic.[2]
