It is with deep sorrow we mark the passing of one of our own, mentor and friend, Harry Riser. Harry passed on Saturday, November 26, 2016.
Harry had been involved with the magic community for nearly 75 years. He was a mentor to Michael Close and taught Penn & Teller how to perform the Faro shuffle. He was a friend to Dai Vernon, Charlie Miller, and many other magicians from the golden age.
