Uri meets Randi
On Monday April 12th 1999, at 9:20 AM New York time, Uri Geller saw James Randi standing with a producer of the American TV program “Inside Edition”, outside the cordoned area where magician David Blaine was buried. Uri was standing with his wife, two children and Shipi Shtrang, his brother in law. Shipi who was filming the event on a professional sony video camera. Uri walked over to James Randi, who was just a few feet away, extending his hand in greeting. Randi refused to shake Uri’s hand. Uri asked Randi “why aren’t you shaking my hand Randi?” In turn, Randi answered “because I hate your guts”. The producer looked a bit embarrassed. All this has been captured on video. All of Uri Geller’s attorneys have been notified about this interesting and revealing remark.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
