Keith Barry is a Star Truly

Keith Barry

The Waterford (IE) News
features Keith Barry
in this morning’s edition.

“If ever there’s been an eventful twelve months for anybody, it’s Waterford-
born magician Keith Barry.”

The paper notes he is a “full-fledged household name” in Ireland but is
gaining ground in the US as well. He is doing so well on this side of the
Atlantic that he’s made a home in Los Angeles.

The reporter suggests, “he’s officially become as big a star as many of the
celebrities he performs for.”

That’s a rather bold statement. By what measure can he consider himself a
“star”?

After all the negotiations, he’s signed a coveted four-year deal
with the top US network CBS, whose resident magician for the past two decades
has been none other than David Copperfield. He’s also embarked on a sell-out
tour of Ireland, premiered his live ‘Brainwashed’ show in Hollywood and also
recently launched his first DVD ‘Brainwashed’ (in Ireland), which is proving a
big hit in the shops.

“Especially in America, it been absolutely hectic, but I’ve been fortunate to
have had a lot of success over there, particularly now with the CBS deal.”

“CBS have worked exclusively with David Copperfield for magic going back two
decades but they’ve moved over to me now for the next four years which is
fantastic.”

The deal, which will see him produce a number of ‘specials’ for the network,
puts Keith Barry right up there among a very select group of magicians.

Just
David Copperfield and David Blaine (he of 44 days in a box fame!) have commanded
their own network TV specials in the US, so if there is any one factor that
truly demonstrates Barry’s meteoric rise across Atlantic, this is
it.
