Episode 20: Lauren Cohen - Magician
In this episode I have the privilege of chatting with magician, Lauren Cohen. It's a privilege because, A) She's a wonderful human being, and B) She's a lady magician, andyou don't come across those very often. During our chat, we discuss why that is. Also, we talk about the fact that Lauren does close-up magic, which is even more of a rarity for women. Lauren shares how she goes about learning her tricks. She talks about reading her audience and dealing with hecklers. And, she shares her experience being a woman magician in what is predominantly a man's field. Some of her stories may surprise you!
I asked Lauren to give me some fun facts about her. Here they are:
"My favorite card is the Ace of hearts. I love chocolate and I think nuts in chocolate is mildly offensive. I've collected PEZ dispensers with my mom for over 12 years and could tell you the whole history of PEZ. I used to only wear platform shoes to amusement parks so I could ride roller coasters with height minimums. I'm 4'10" and 5/8ths tall. And yes, those 5/8ths do matter. And no, that doesn't make me the "legal height of a little person." I'm a huge animal person and I think pictures of dogs should be shared and viewed daily. If I had to eat one meal for the rest of my life with no health repercussions, it would probably be macaroni and cheese. When I see a penny on the ground, I pick it up so I have good luck, but then I intentionally drop it somewhere else, so someone else can have good luck, too."
I love all of Lauren's fun facts, but that last one says it all! She's awesome. And she's a magician, which makes her even more awesome. So, sit back and enjoy some time with this all around great gal! Here's my chat with Lauren Cohen.
