Richard Turner - The Cheat

Richard Turner has achieved legendary status in the world of card magicians. However, Richard Turner is not a magician nor does he claim to be one—he demonstrates card cheating. Of course, all of this is made even more impressive given that Mr. Turner is blind. The bio-segment advertises his show as well as his motivational speaking.

Horrific audio. To hear him talking i must turn up the volume. And then the audience yells "wooo" and claps extra loud :(
Maybe someone could apply some sound normalizing and re-upload?

When i saw the description, and then the video, i had a hard time believing this man is blind. I did some research, and i was proven wrong, he started going blind already at the age of 13. I am utterly and hands down, amazed, this is incredible...
edit: btw, i've tried to make a better audio version of this, gonna submit it and see if they think its better.

3:00 o_O WTF, how does anybody (blind or seeing) do that?? I'm blown away, and he's only getting started.

And no, I also didn't believe him to be blind. He's way too smooth for that, and especially at 3:35 made me skeptical. But Wikipedia says he is, and so of course it must be true:

Here he's introducing himself which is *definitely* worth watching:

#4 yea, i always look at some of the references at the bottom just to double check. Most times i end up finding that wiki is pretty accurate. Checked your link btw, was good. Tho a bit much to have him blindfolded :D
