We're incredibly sad to report that Max Maven, a true giant and magical pioneer, passed away Tuesday evening in his sleep. Max was diagnosed last year with a brain tumor and we've all been quietly hoping he would fully recover.
As we lose another larger than life giant in the magic community it's only fitting that we pay tribute to Max on this week's ThrowbackThursday.
The Magic Palace was filmed in Calgary, Alberta and hosted by illusionist Dale Harney. It ran for three seasons and featured an astonishing array guests including some of the most well regarded magicians and mentalists of the era.
Max Maven was the recipient of the Allan Slaight Award - Lifetime Achievement in 2017.
