"Mike Caveney has created an act of clever and original material, that unfailingly puts his audience into fits of crippling laughter, yet keeps the focus on mystery and the impossible. I love his act, and rank it among the best comedy magic shows of our time."- Eric Mead

"One of the funniest magicians in America."-The Hollywood Reporter

"If you want to know more about how to construct brilliant magic and routines, you must get Mike's new books! Few people in the world understand magic the way the Cave does."- John Carney

"Mike Caveney Wonders is the finest set of books I have ever owned. This is the finest thing in magic that I have ever owned. An absoute bargain and a must read."- Steve Bryant Little Egypt

What will he teach?

I have been using these routines professionally for many decades, usually performing the Ten Dollar Bill trick first with a child from the audience followed by the Bill in Cigar with a gentleman volunteer. Because of the interaction between myself and the spectators these two routines can run a total of 16 or 17 minutes. I have performed both tricks in private homes and once did the Bill in Cigar at the San Diego Sports Arena before thousands of spectators. These are classic plots that after years of thought and refinement have become two of my favorite, any-time, any-where, angle-proof routines. Also, Impromptu Powers of Darkness.

Who is he?

Mike's talents have taken him from Japan to Russia, from Monte Carlo to Borneo, China, throughout Europe, South America, and most of the 50 States. He has performed onboard the legendary Orient Express, 6 times at the FISM World Congress of Magic in Belgium, Japan, Portugal, England, China and Korea, at the Sydney Arts Festival and the world famous London Palladium.

Twice Mike has been voted "Stage Magician of the Year" by the Magic Castle in Hollywood, and he is a member of London's Inner Magic Circle. On television, Mike has appeared on A&E's "Story of Magic", NBC's "The World's Greatest Magic" special, "The Masters of Illusion", and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno".

Mike Caveney's Magic Words has published more than 50 books on the theory, practice and history of magic and Mike has written "Magicomedy", "Harry Anderson: Wise Guy", "The Great Leon", "Carter the Great", 3 volumes of Classic Correspondence from Egyptian Hall Museum, "Mike Caveney Wonders", "The Conference Illusions" and, with Jim Steinmeyer, "MAGIC 1400s-1950" which has been translated into six languages.

I wasn't going to write a review of this until I saw an unenthusiastic one... though I did have some sympathy for the reviewer.

For $40 it wouldn't be the best value for someone looking for a lot of close up or walk around effects. This features 3 parlour or stage effects. And as far as ACTS go, I certainly know that Mr. Caveney has a few more precious sets that he has kept to himself.

So maybe it'd be a better value to buy his book.

I agree that this lecture isn't for everybody.
HOWEVER, but it was certainly for me.

Caveney's lecture reflects all the thought and ingenuity I imagined real magicians practiced when I was just a kid. It *was* old fashioned! But in the best possible way.

I cannot wait for his second one.

Not an impressive lecture Report this review

Mike is so old school, the magic was dull, nothing impressive, and nothing new, and only three effects. Might not be the best choice here on penguin.
