Chris Cox is a mentalist magician – a self-proclaimed "mind reader who can't read minds". On television he stars in "Chris Cox's Mind Blowing Magic" on CBBC & BBC iPlayer and is "The Geek" in the award winning Killer Magic on BBC Three. He also stars in touring stage show The Illusionists and in the West End in Impossible. He is the only mind reader in history to play Broadway, London's West End and Sydney Opera House. In his radio career Chris was the writer and producer for Matt Edmondson on BBC Radio 1; the assistant producer on The Chris Moyles Show. The Guardian has called him "One of the most exciting entertainers in Britain" and Time Out once said he "does tricks that would make Jesus proud"

This week Jonah connects with Chris Cox to discuss his unique brand of mentalism, what it’s been like to go from touring every day to virtual shows at home, and why he loves magic but doesn’t find magic very interesting. Chis Cox is a mentalist who has performed on Broadway and on the BBC and toured as “The Mentalist” in the Illusionists. He’s also spent the past year crushing it in virtual shows, after thinking he would pass on it and enjoy the break after his grueling non-stop touring schedule was abruptly cancelled along with everything else. Always A Performer Chris has always been a performer and has always had a love for theatre. Unfortunately for him he can’t sing, can’t dance, and wasn’t funny enough for stand up. But he always loved magic and in his early teens discovered mentalism and realized instantly that this was the thing for him, as mentalism was all performance. Loves Theatre More Than Magic A lot of people love magic and have no desire to be on TV or perform in front of a large audience. Chris is not those people. He loves theatre more than he loves magic and that has informed his presentation throughout his career. Watching a great play inspires him and investigating why it connects to him informs his thinking about everything he does. Consuming all kinds of theatre can inform you so much more about how the magic happens than watching the same tricks performed the same way over and over again. The goal is the performance and the presentation. Happiest on Stage Chris is happiest on stage. He loves it, it’s exhausting, and he misses it terribly. When the pandemic started Chris avoided adopting any kind of virtual show performance. He was burnt out from two years of touring and thought he could just wait it out. Eventually it got to the point where he couldn’t avoid it anymore and he found his background in radio helped get him excited about virtual show producing. Since launching his virtual shows he’s learned lots of lessons about what to exploit and how to make it fun with his audiences. Wrap-Up Endless Chain Here comes a list of people that Chris gets a lot from when he talks to them: – Mark Cailen Mark Kalin Jonathan Goodwin Andy Nyman Tyler Wilson Noel Qualter Young & Strange And also Paul Dabek! What do you like about modern magic? What do you not like? What they like What they don’t like Take home point Who you are now isn’t who you were or who you are going to be but who you are now is what you’ve got to work with. Finding out who you are as a performer is more important than anything else. Plugs Everything Chris Cox can be found at MagicCox.com Or Facebook at facebook.com/ilovecox Or Twitter @bigcox And also, fingers crossed, Wonderment will be returning soon to the London West End and if you are able to attend you should drop Chris a message and let him know so you can say hi from a safe distance.

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark talk to Chris Cox – Leader of Bikers for Trump. Today’s show rundown: · Segregation @ Columbia University as far as graduations go – Black Graduations as a whole only ampliphy neo segregation · Bikers are citizen crusaders from all walks of life / blue collar, white collar, etc etc · Everybody is equal when bikers get together 400,000 members for this Bikers for Trump · Like Donald Trump, Bikers speak their mind and tell you the truth · 1% discussion Biker’s for Trump do not have a ton of them in their membership – and really how that whole 1% thing is changing – it is blown out of proportion. · You do not see hipocrasy within the biker community no call for be less white, or less black, just be you. · Leftist Washington politicians are unhinged…they read things off bathroom walls, 24 hours later they are calling for an investigation · Chainsaw artist – amazing Eagle art he show’d Mark and Chuck · Chuck on David Letterman years ago, and how Letterman stormed off his own set · Bikers for Trump make sure people don’t have voter fatigue – showing facts, doing the hard work More about Chris Cox: Chris is a conservative leader with a track record for getting results and making a difference on a wide variety of issues. He hasn’t made waves by doing things conventionally, though, and he isn’t a conventional candidate. A chainsaw carving artist by trade, Chris isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty, put in the hard work to truly create change, and is ready to put his skills to use serving the Lowcountry. In 2013, during the government shutdown the Million Vet March on Washington was announced. Chris realized that, with the Park Servicefurloughed, war memorials would be left in disarray and was outraged at the thought of veterans arriving to memorials covered in garbage and debris. He immediately left the Lowcountry to the Lincoln Memorial and began single-handedly mowing the lawns, clearing fallen trees, and taking out the trash—while the government remained gridlocked for 16 days. Chris was determined to stop open-air war memorials from being political pawns again. So, he temporarily relocated to Washington as a full-time, unpaid citizen lobbyist to persuade members of Congress to support his legislation and selling chainsaw carvings on the side to support himself.After nearly two years, Chris successfully secured the bipartisan introduction of H.R. 1836, the Monuments Protection Act, in the 114thCongress. In the summer of 2015, Chris found himself inspired by then-candidate Trump’s message to Make America Great Again. To support the movement, Chris formed Bikers for Trump and grew this nontraditional coalition to over 300,000 members today that played a key role in President Trump’s election. After the 2016 election, Chris was able to return full-time to his 20-year home of Mount Pleasant. While he’s continued gearing up Bikers for Trump for 2020, he’s persisted his voluntary lobbying for bipartisan legislation supporting veterans, and has made five separate trips to Israel to build bomb shelters. Already well acquainted with the legislative process, he will hit the ground running and bring real results...
