What the critics think about SERIP's work:
TOM OGDEN: "The unexpected highlights and surprises of the convention were many: the performance of Serip & Romy from Portugal whose hot-dog and sausage productions are well remembered by FlSM conventioneers. Naughty but funny. ~ (In Genii, U.S.A., April 1986, on the Magic Convention in Finland).
ALBERTO SITTA: "The famous Portuguese magician Serip (Dr. João de Deus Madeira Pires), author of several books about magic, will speak about the "Psychology of Magic" before introducing us to his new elegant manipulation performance which has already been awarded several international prizes (In "Magia Moderna", Boulogne Festival Programme, May 1986).
SOCRATE: "SERIP, A good cigarette, pipes and cigar manipulation number with some excellent attention deviations. (He wrote a booklet in French about the subject and he knows what he is talking about). An unexpected end: a spotted neck-scarf turned into a cloak. It is one of the best existing versions. He won the Grand Prix. (In "Journal de la Prestidigitation" about the Sophia Congress in October 1982).
JODIVIL: "Joao de Deus Madeira Pires is the full name of most internationally acclaimed Portuguese magician, known as Serip (...) With elegant manipulation, general and comedy magic numbers he won ... 15 international prizes ! His numbers are a combination of technique and subtle psychology. His experience as a speaker at several European conferences and festivals has led him to write three books, presenting magic tricks using coins, cigarettes and applied psychology. His books have been translated into Spanish, French, English, Italian and German. (In "Revista do Clube Mágico Português", 1993, n. 2.
