Pengiun Live Lecture by Tony Clark (April 15th, 2018)
“Tony Clark probably has more experience, with more different kinds of magic, than anyone I know. That’s what makes his lecture so interesting, and so much fun. He’s brought all of that experience, all that creativity, to a whole new range of effects. Best of all, once you see Tony perform them, they’re ideas that you’ll want to use.”– Jim Steinmeyer
“Tony Clark is a master magician. His knowledge is expansive; he knows how to successfully perform everything from intricate sleight-of hand to large-scale stage illusions and his solutions are always elegant and magical. We are lucky he is sharing his knowledge.”- Danny Cole
“Tony Clark always has the answer! His deep breadth of knowledge in all areas of magic has been built over many years of performing, teaching, learning and consulting. He has a way of attacking magic that is logical, creative, and smart. He WILL make you a better magician, performer and thinker!”- Jonathan Levit
What will he teach?
4 Ace cut into “Liar, Liar” mind reading effect- (Classic mentalism effect) 4 people on stage. Great way to bring people up on stage. Starts with 4 spectator’s cutting to aces. Then moves into mind reading affect where the magician can tell who wrote what on 4 pieces of paper. Packs small and play big on stage.
Silk Thru Spectator’s Arm- A silk penetrates through a spectator’s arm
Knife Thru Coat- Always very strong impromtu routine. A real knife goes through anyone’s jacket.
Flying Knots in Glasses- Great routine that packs flat and plays big. Knots magically fly from one set of tied scarves across the stage to another glass being help by a spectator.
Coins Thru Table/ One coin routine- A modernized version of the Great Slydini’s coins through the table. Powerful principles of timing and misdirection are taught in the process of learning this great routine.
6 card repeat- A great opening effect. Tony teaches a simple un-gimmicked version perfect for any act.
3 Phase cut and restored rope routine- (First two phase from Slydini’s cut and restored rope routine) Fun strong effect. Great for anyone’s act.
Bottle thru Body- A beer bottle is passed through someone midsection. (later in the lecture I can show the bottle thru table as well.)
