Lecture Reviews

“Dan Harlan’s performance was a riot. His timing and delivery was razor-sharp. While his physical appearance is like that of a rock-star tough-guy, his interaction with the audience reveals the thoughtfulness and depth of a concert pianist… A true artist. During the lecture portion, his passion for magic was evident. At times he seemed like a kid at recess. Dan Harlan’s magic was everything you could ask for… Dan was extremely generous with the wonderful ideas he shared. If one wanted to, one could build an entire act based solely on the information he presented to us…. the real gold was the thinking behind his presentations. The food for thought was nothing less than a banquet. Remarkable stuff.” —Christopher Griggs

“It was great to have you back for another lecture. Your material was all new, and of such an amazingly wide variety. In a word - wow! You were in top form and a real hit at our club.” -Gene Anderson

“Dan on behalf of everyone here I would like to thank you for a wonderful lecture. It was good to see that old Harlan ingenuity that we all love. You were a delight to have. We will definitely have you back again.” -ABC Magic

“Your lecture for us was exceptional. I have heard nothing but rave reviews from our members, many saying it was one of the best they have seen. Your material was solid, well thought out, and very commercial. It is good to see you back in top form. You will always have an open invitation to come back and lecture for us.” -Tony Weiland

“Your teaching skills, your inventiveness, and your attention to detail, coupled with your friendly spirit, all added to the success of your lecture. Thank you for a job well done. We are happy to enthusiastically recommend you for any convention planner, magic gathering, or corporate event, as part of their entertainment line-up.

Unbelievable! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 29th, 2013
This is by far and away the best online lecture I've seen. (I've seen Kranzo's, Joshua Jay's, Menotti's, Farquhar's, Jon Armstrong's, and John Van Der Putt's.) Dan made me feel like a spectator again and provided great advice as well as great tricks.

A breakdown of the effects he performed/explained:
An amazing ACAAN (sadly, not explained, but he did share another, not quite as good routine)
Shrinking Rubber Band
Broken and Restored Rubber Band
Traveling Cash (marketed effect, I will definately use this)
Band Vanish (he snorts it up his nose)
Stash (marketed effect, briefly explained)
Bottom Deal Routine (this is unbelievable, and the last phase blew me away)
A simple sugar vanish and reproduction (really beautiful routine that a lot of magicians overlook)
A variation of Chris Randall's sugar high (better than Chris' version)
An incredible impromptu Out of This World Routine that I will start doing immediately.
A mentalism routine that utilizes a diabolical peak Dan created. I will use this.

If there no explanations, I would be happy with my purchase. Watching Dan perform really opened my eyes and his advice is timeless and practical. My best buy on Penguin yet.

Another FANTASTIC lecture from Dan Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 16th, 2013
I was thrilled by Dan's first Penguin Live Lecture back in June, 2012 and his second lecture tonight was even better!

Here is just a few of the things Dan went over:

Dan taught some incredible rubber band magic ( that you'll actually do ) but he didn't stop there. He taught and performed a fantastic bottom dealing, gambling/cheating demonstration that lead everyone down the garden path to a killer ending.

He performed and taught an Out Of This World routine that is replacing the one I've done for 30 years. That's how good it is.

Dan also performed his marketed trick called STASH and it was great to see it performed live ( there's a prop that you have to get direct from Dan, but you'll carry and perform it everywhere you can ). Dan even shared some of the workings of it for those that don't have it yet.

If you haven't tried a Penguin Lecture yet, get this one because you WILL learn and perform the magic Dan taught!

Excellent lecture Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2013
I thought this was a terrific lecture, especially as it had to be brought together in a couple of days after the previous unfortunate cancellation. Dan did a number of amazing effects, and I am glad they weren't all using rubber bands. And after one of the results he got livw tonight, I think he should start buying lottery tickets. :D

If you like Dan's magic, you won't be disappointed with this one.

great one again Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2013
Dan did it once again.

This lecture was real great one.

What I enjoyed was that in fact it was not just about rubber. Dan has taught a lot of stuff around and it was real fun to watch him perform.

He did not reveal all of the effects, but still it was worth watching.

And the stuff with rubber bands was excellent. I will be actually using these effects, because you can have some band with you all the time.

Dan's lecture was amazing! He put it together in a few days and it was top notch. I kept saying to myself, I want to learn that one, and that one, and that one... basically all of them. I'm looking forward to Dan Harlan Live 3.

It's Dan Harlan, need I say more? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 22nd, 2013
Dans 1st lecture was AH Mazing!! This lecture is great for people who perform more close up than parlor/stage. If you are into parlor/stage get the 1st harlan lecture. In this lecture he teaches some great rubber band magic, as others have stated, and some great card stuff. The only downside is I wish he could have gone more in detail his ACAAN. Other than that.. This is a great lecture
