David Ben is the recognized authority on the life and magic of Dai Vernon and in this unique lecture at FISM David will showcase through words, images and performance footage why Vernon was, as Max Maven has described, like James Joyce—a person who comes along once a century and changes… everything.

David is also the co-founder of Magicana, the author of several books, including Dai Vernon: Artist, Magician, Muse, and associate producer and magic consultant on the Daniel Zuckerbrot film Dai Vernon: The Spirit of Magic.
