Anyone who does magic as part of a performance or even just calls themselves a magician is just a master of illusion, I assure you. Stage magicians seek to emulate magic, but the tricks they perform could never work without their skills and props since magic is rarely so physical and predictable to be used in such a fashion. Even if it were, it would still require such a huge amount of effort that the result would hardly be worth it.
On the VERY off chance this man wasn't pulling off an illusion, I suggest avoiding him. Anyone with enough magical skill to light a cigarette in public with so casually is way out of your league and ours too. If you tried to confront him, it's quite unlikely that your meeting would go well even if he decided you were worth his time.
