Blind magician performs in Dothan

By  | 

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Richard Turner is an award winning "card mechanic", or someone who controls the outcome of a card game.

But, he is not your average card mechanic.

Richard is completely blind. But that hasn't stopped him from living your every day life.

Since he lost his sight, he has been in the card entertainment business for over 40 years, and has even been the subject of the film "Dealt", which won best picture at various film festivals.

Turner is in Dothan to perform for the Eye Central South banquet that was held earlier this evening.

He says touch is his best sense, now that his vision is impaired.
