Once a month, C Magazine interviews a prominent Columbus figure to discuss a little monkey business. This month, we met professional magician and host of the Ohio Lottery’s new game show on Fox 28, Make Me Famous, Make Me Rich.
C Magazine: Do you believe in magic?
David McCreary: I guess so. There had to be some sort of magic involved with Paris Hilton's rise to fame.
C Magazine: You’re a magician. Who would you most like to saw in half?
McCreary: Paris Hilton. Sorry. Last time, I swear.
C Magazine: What would Nostradamus have predicted about you?
McCreary: Even Nostradamus would have said, "David who?"
C Magazine: Sirius, XM or good old-fashioned radio?
McCreary: I've got Sirius and I love it. It's got Hair Nation. That's all the hair bands I grew up listening to. Nothing says cool like a 35-year-old cruising the streets of Easton with the windows down and Warrant blasting on the radio.
C Magazine: You say “here’s the deal” quite a bit. What is the deal?
McCreary: Wow, do I really? I haven't noticed. I'm not sure what the deal is. I think the real question here is: “Why are you hanging on my every word?” That's bordering on stalker.
C Magazine: You’re on a yellow brick road. Are you searching for a heart, a brain or courage?
McCreary: I'm looking for Dorothy. Ha ha! Ouch, wifey just hit me. She says to tell you I'd be looking for a brain.
C Magazine: Oprah Winfrey or Howard Stern?
McCreary: I hate to name names, but one is overrated, and the other is Oprah Winfrey.
C Magazine: This is off the record… Can you tell us what the next six Ohio Lottery numbers will be?
McCreary: I'd love to, but the number pad on my keyboard is on the fritz.
