Junior Brodie Curtsinger’s development from day one of magic to his four year magic anniversary.

Not one, not two, not three, but four whole years. 

Sept. 24 was my four year magic anniversary, and my magic is going better than ever.

I still can’t comprehend how I accomplished the milestone of doing magic for four years. I have accomplished many things, in my lifetime of doing magic. I can’t wait to see what The Magic Duck has to hold for me, in the future. 

It is crazy to think that I have been doing magic for four years. It has been an amazing four years of magic, but it still is crazy to think that I have been doing something like magic for so long, when most people quit after a short period of time. I hope this magic trick can withhold the amount of love I have for magic. 

Inside of the magic trick, I take a completely shuffled a deck of cards, and tell a story with it. I’m able to tell the story on how I began magic, and what all I have accomplished up to date. All of my accomplishments might seem impossible, for a 16-year-old, but as a magician, you must believe in the impossible. 

I have made many types of merchandise, including shirts, hats, face masks, cups, wallets, and business cards. Here recently, I actually applied to make my The Magic Duck logo, and my The Magic Duck name, an official trademark. For those of you who don’t know, The Magic Duck is my performer name, and my company name. Nov. 26, last year, I performed in the school talent show, in front of hundreds of people. I tried out for Season 16 of America’s Got Talent. There are many more accomplishments that I have made with The Magic Duck, but to hear the rest, you’re going to have to watch the video. 

My future plans for me, as The Magic Duck, is to continue to grow as a magician, and become a magician that people actually know. I can’t wait to see what magic actually does hold for me. 

Now, if you’re interested in seeing a magic trick from me, and getting to be on, “Brodie’s Monthly Magic,” or you have a friend that you think would be interested in that, then you can email me at [email protected].
