A humourous and witty magician who was instantly engaging with his audiences. He was also an inventor and pioneer of early cinema, purchasing one of the first film projectors ever made. What I particularly like about him is that he focused more on his ability to perform a few tricks well, as opposed to knowing as many as he could. When asked, he also often said that his magic was done "all by kindness."
"Well, old bean," he replied when asked why he seemed so cheerful all the time, "life is really so bloody awful that I feel it's my absolute duty to be chirpy and try and make everybody else happy too."
He is described as, "the meteor who lit up every room he entered," and his dinner party conversations were said to be spectacular. He certainly sounds so pleasingly cheerful and kind.
"It really is amazing," he said. "Can you imagine being wonderfully overpaid for dressing up and playing games? It's like being Peter Pan."
He is, I like to think, as brilliant as David Attenborough, and as kind as David Devant, and as cheerful as David Niven, and as funny as David Kyson, and as loveable as David Tennant, and as witty as David Mitchell. He often goes out of his way to help other people, and always works hard on the projects he enjoys to produce something enjoyable for others too. Well, I can't help but think he is an admirable person, can I? It's good to be so proud of myself.
