"Mark Strivings is a brilliant creator and innovator of mentalism." - Banachek

The list of performers use Mark's material reads like a 'Who's Who' of magic and mentalism. Mark is the author of over 20 books and just as many videos on various aspects of magic and mentalism and has nearly 60 commercial releases to his credit. Mark is a full-time performer, author and creator of magic and mentalism based out the Denver area.

Mark will be lecturing on three basic areas:

1. Walk Around Mentalism (the trade term that Mark actually started nearly 20 years ago)
Yes, he is to blame for the surge in strolling and walkaround mentalism since the early 90's. He has written two complete books on the subject ('Mobile Mentalism, Vols. I & II) as well as releasing several commercial effects in the genre.

2. Formal close up mentalism
This is material that, while not necessarily ideal for strolling circumstances, is perfect for virtually all other close up venues and situations. Perfect for times when you just want something with you to perform at a moment's notice.

3. The 50/50 Principle
This simple principle/subtlety allows for some absolutely mind blowing miracles and takes tricks that are even commonplace amongst magicians and turns them into miracles that fool literally everyone.

If you could ask ONE question to one of the world's most creative professional magicians, what would it be?

Awesome Lecture! Report this review

1. Walk Around Mentalism

Love the routines Mark showed us. The routine called Predict-a-date is really good. I use it in my walk around set and it kills every time. The tips on this routine is why I tuned in (middle of the night here in the Netherlands) at the first place!

2. Formal close up mentalism

Really nice stuff with cards. The prediction effects are mindblowing. Use an everyday object to predict something instead of an envelope. Great!

3. The 50/50 Principle

A principle you can use in many tricks. Thank you Mark!

From Mark I was expecting something better. Its effects are commercial, but for the most part are reworkings of old effects.

Disappointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 30th, 2013
After all the hype for this lecture, I was disappointed in the quality of what Mark shared. I'm sure Mark is very accomplished, but the effects and handlings he offered were underwhelming. His bill switch was clumsy and obvious and the structuring of several routines seemed incomplete, as if he wasn't offering the "real work". I appreciated his subtleties with a notepad, but I can't say I felt like I received my money's worth. I received much more current, useable material from the Patrick Redford lecture, which I highly recommend.

Very good lecture. Real world effects and very well taught. I recommend this lecture, there is something for everyone. There is even an old card principal that I'd long forgot about. Mark has made good use of his knowledge and I'm glad he decided to share his expertise. ADD TO CART NOW!
