Penguin Live Online Lecture (september 29th, 2013) by David Williamson
“Williamson is one of the finest sleight of hand magicians I have ever met. You may not notice this at first, because he is so funny and entertaining, it tends to overshadow his skill, which is second to none. Dave has the talent, and the ability to sell it. If you want to be a better magician, it would be foolish to miss an opportunity to hear him speak about magic!” -John Carney
“David Williamson is my favorite magician. I’ve seen him lecture more than a dozen times and still he manages to teach me something vital every time.” -Mac King

If you get a chance to see him lecture… don’t miss it. You will be learning from one of the best in the business.” -Paul Gertner
“Most magicians know David Williamson as the funniest performer in the business but they are often not aware of his serious side. Underneath all of the laughter is a very serious student of magic who has developed theories about performing and presentation that are based on thousands of shows. All of us can learn plenty from this master magician.” -Mike Caveney
