Stage magic has a fantastically interesting history. From ancient Egyptians to Harry Houdini to David Blaine, magic has been blowing people's minds for thousands of years. Let's take a look at the who, where, and why of it all.

In this episode of The History of Fun, Justin (@juddtoday) explores the interesting history of board stage magic, with a little help from Dr. Gustav Kuhn, expert on the psychology of magic, from the University of London, Goldsmiths.
