"It makes my head spin how well Paul Draper delivers a lecture!"- Jeff McBride, Founder of the McBride Magic & Mystery School 

"Paul is a library of knowledge and a university of talent. It's been my privilege to embrace his teachings. Listen carefully."- Hannibal, Close-Up Magician and Storyteller

 "My favorite thing about watching Paul Draper perform is the ease with which he combines masterful storytelling and mind-blowing magic. Paul does the impossible beautifully, and he makes it look easy. Paul is as good at teaching as he is at performing. That combination is very rare and makes his instruction invaluable for performers at every level."- Sean Critchfield, Merlin at the Excalibur in Las Vegas

 "Paul Draper is a tremendous psychic entertainer, and every time we speak, he passes on invaluable insights regarding the performance of mentalism. In fact, I've seen Paul enlighten a room full of the world's top mentalists, offering specific suggestions on how each of them, with a few tweaks here and there, could take their game to the next level. Paul is always in demand and has performed his show in numerous countries."- Gabe Abelson, Head Monologue Writer for "Late Show with David Letterman" and Staff Writer for "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno"

Entertaining and Charming Performace Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 22nd, 2019
Draper’s act was tightly scripted, charming mentalism based on classic methods. He had a through-line weaving the effects together thematically; he also had a thread connecting the technical aspects of the performance, which he leaves to the viewer, to figure out (revealed during the explanation). By the end of the 25 minute performance, we know his political leanings, religious background, interests and that he has a good sense of humor. It’s not every performance of mentalism that reveals so much in terms of character and personality, and I hope other performers will take note. As for the mentalism, I would characterize it as simple and strong. Not overly procedural for the most part (a few transfers of critical bits of paper from hand to hand are the only exceptions that come to mind). As is not uncommon in this branch of magic, most of the show can be purchased in WalMart, CVS or even a well-stocked petrol station, save a few small magic-specific items. While the majority of mental acts I’ve seen on Penguin leave me cold, this is one of a few that I found engaging and entertaining.

A TRUE Master Class Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 5th, 2019
Between this & Mr. Draper’s other Penguin Lecture, you have all you need to make a living as a mentalist. In this lecture you learn everything from method structure to show structure. This is an ACT that is loaded with tons of usable, practical routines. Even though you probably won’t use every piece or the entire show as is, you will definitely learn how to structure your own show, or get ideas for new material. The principles taught can be applied to create your own affects and Your own show. Do yourself a favor and make this investment! FIVE STARS

Slick, clear, and engaging Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 23rd, 2019
A great, engaging act and amazingly clear presentation. The two themes (overt and covert) were absolutely on it. One (simple!) suggestion was worth the whole subscription, and I'm looking at a particular gimmick in a whole new way.
