Abracadabra! Stories about Magic with Porchlight
Thursday, January 12 @ 7 – 8:30 PM

In this special, one-time-only Houdini-tribute edition of San Francisco’s popular Porchlight storytelling series, hosts Beth Lisick and Arline Klatte present a cast of magicians, mentalists, and spiritualist debunkers, who brave the audience to confess first-hand accounts of brushes with magic. Storytellers include magic show maestro, Stallion; professional magician and “debunker,” James (The Amazing) Randi; mentalist and comedian Eric Mead; and All Things Considered contributor and magician Dayvid Figler.

Porchlight, now in its 8th year, is San Francisco's premier storytelling series. People from different backgrounds are invited to tell 10-minute true stories without using notes or memorization. Past storytellers include some of the area's most entertaining school bus drivers, mushroom hunters, politicians, socialites, sex workers, musicians, authors, systems analysts, and social workers.
