An On-The-Street Video Set of Routined Impromptu Magic

On the Spot is a guerilla course in performing impromptu magic. The material is so strong, you could show up at your next gig with no magic on you and still entertain the daylights out of them. It's that good.

Get ready to experience Greg's outta-sight insights for real people with real off the cuff fun! With these simple but stunning routines, you'll be able to turn everyday objects into weapons of deception.

  • Ticker Taker - A super-simple and perfectly motivated watch steal that doesn't take tons of testosterone to perform. Learn how to repeat steal a spectator's watch up to 4 times in a row.
  • Quick Silver - A quarter disappears and reappears three times - in your eye socket (like a monocle), on the spectator's shoulder, and finally under their watch. All you need is a quarter.
  • Sponge Napkins - The impact of a sponge ball routine with ordinary cocktail napkins. Greg's gone beyond the ordinary spongeball moves and has them reappearing in surprising places. Greg also introduces a new concealment that will fool you and your spectators. + Across - A clean and slick impromptu Coins Across. All you need are 3 borrowed quarters. Better start doing your Pinky-Pushups for this incredibly fair handling.
  • Head Trip - A Paper Balls over the Head routine with anything - and everything. Gregory grabs glasses, plates, and saltshakers - anything he can get his mitts on!! This routine alone is a postgraduate course in misdirection.
  • Glossy Finish - A smear of borrowed lipstick penetrates a spectator's tightly clenched fist. This is perhaps the most motivated and natural routine in the series! Even if you're familiar with the method, you'll still be fooled watching the performance!
  • Toll Free - A Close-up miser's dream that ends with a jumbo production! Multiple methods ensure that spectators never see the same move twice.
  • 99 Cent Trick - Multiple coin vanishes topped off with a dizzying transposition. That's all I'm telling you.
  • Florida Keys - Ordinary keys and their key ring become a mini Linking Ring routine.
  • Ring Fright - You toss a borrowed wedding band into the air and then stab it with your finger!
  • Questionable Trick - A very convincing copper/silver transposition with the spare change in your pocket - a penny and a dime. Now you can perform Scotch and Soda anywhere, at any time. Playful Pickpocketing - Rob your spectators blind - they'll love your for it. Greg demonstrates how Close-up Pickpocketing can transform the audience's definition of you as an entertainer and erase the lines between performer and audience.
  • ReCap Revisited - Gregory's classic, as you've never seen it. Greg's added new subtleties, moves and brilliant new ending where the pen is pulled from the pencap!
Plus More!

These aren't just abbreviated quickies. They're complete routines that are so strong, they can be used at any professional performance.

The best impromptu magic Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2010
I love this video. It is a true example of how powerful impromptu magic can be. These tricks aren't throwaways. They also aren't all easy. They are however, well within the grasp of the average magician.

My favorite routine is Florida Keys. It is a bit knacky but once you have it down it is like riding a bike. I carry this set up everywhere I go. I also like Quicksilver. This is another great routine that can get alot of mileage. Finally, A questionable trick is the ultimate economical trick utilizing a dime and a penny.

There isn't a single thing on this video that I haven't performed at least 10 times. Most I have used more than I have counted. I love it.

Great ideas-very challenging Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 16th, 2018
I have been doing magic at an intermediate level for many years. This material is great in many ways. Heres the but-Greg Wilson is great and does this material in his sleep but it’s not easy. His coins across is amazing but you’re doing Goshman is conjunction with another move ala
Hang ping Chen. Not easy. So be warned. Others are easier. Also his material is based on his Jazz magic style. Not everyone has that ability.
If you like organic magic and want to appear clean as you begin this is for u. One pet peeve I have is when you market something as totally impromptu and then there are some set up (or in this case props).
Great material, not easy, not all impromptu.

Really on the SPOT Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 28th, 2018
I have seen many impromptu videos and read masses of books and this really is on the spot. These are not those usual tricks which you se everyshere but really useable collection of classics. Classics, yes, but well explained as Gregory always does. There are also few new tricks which I haven't seen before like Florida keys, which is pure gold. Also Greg does have some new ways to end those famous classics. I am really pleased I purchased this. It is good for both beginners and pros because you can learn something about Greg's performance which always is funny. And one more thing, he has quite nice assistant.

Brilliant! Report this review

Just as the title says, learn a few of these routines and you will always be ready to amaze. Greg's handling of coins across using three U.S. quarters (and nothing else) has become a standard part of my routine. Some of the moves will require a bit of practice, but the result is a lifetime of great impromptu effects.

fun stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 28th, 2013
Good video, Gregory is fun to watch and you can get a sense of his love of magic. The teaching is top notch and the routines are great. A little work and you can perform without big props or fancy gimmicks, this is pure sleight of hand and as such requires your practice. Some routines you can perform soon and others need more time. If you are looking for sleight of hand and want some practice get this video. A+
