Las Vegas Magician Murray SawChuck Claims “The Illusionists” Copied His Signature Trick

The Illusionists are a band of various talented magicians from around the world and many from Las Vegas are a huge hit in Australia, Asia and Europe with each magician doing a signature act they have honed over years in the business (Courtesy photos).
Las Vegas Headliner Murray SawChuck who performs nightly at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino feels completely ripped off by The Illusionists. When you watch the newest version of The Illusionists you will notice the magic of a Steam Train Locomotive appearing with the cast to kick off the show.
Murray explains, “You will also notice the train is an exact copy of MY steam train illusion I designed and invented in 2010 for America’s Got Talent Semi-Finals being seen by more than 22 million viewers.”
According to Murray, he was and still is the first magician to perform the largest illusion EVER on America’s Got Talent in 2010 where he vanished and branded himself with a steam train locomotive that he designed and created, giving no one else permission to use his idea.
Murray said, “Most of the The Illusionist cast is from Las Vegas and they are well aware that the Steam Train Illusion is my idea yet I didn’t receive ONE phone call from anyone giving me the heads up or a nod that they wanted his idea of a steam train locomotive on stage.
“It’s a fact there has never been an illusion with a steam train locomotive inside a theater before I created mine for America’s Got Talent in 2010!” Murray continued. “In this business you can’t patent an idea so it’s very easy to have your brand or idea ripped off without any credit!”
