The New Yorker published this really fascinating piece on a man named Apollo Robbins who is what some people call a “theatrical pickpocket”. That is, he pickpockets for entertainment purposes. I’ve never heard of him before but apparently within magician circles he’s very well known and often considered the absolute best pickpocket in the world. What’s interesting to me though is that his magic doesn’t seem to wear off as I figure out how he does his tricks. In fact, I’m just more interested in his work and how he actually manages to trick people even when he tells them he’s going to trick them. Pretty insane.
