“I really enjoy seeing Danny lecture. He's a great guy who has a feel for solid and practical material, all performed with that delightful "Archer" touch. Besides performing in the "real world", he's rubbed shoulders with some of the best performers in the business and it shows. Let him share that wisdom with you.” -Bruce Bernstein
“I have been working with Danny for years and he is not only dependable but knows the Magic Business as well as any one. His Lectures are entertaining. He is a true professional.” -Dean Dill
"Danny really thinks about how to get the maximum impact his magic can have on his audiences. Don't let some simple methods put you off the powerful effect his routines have because you'll be passing up some real gems." -Jon Allen
“My students, (9 of them were at the lecture in Melbourne), spent the next session discussing your lecture, you, and your material. It was the consensus of opinion that the material was some of the best and most useable they had seen. I have to agree. I enjoyed your lecture very much, however I enjoyed you more.” -Chuck Fayne
“Your lecture was very good. More importantly it was VERY PRACTICAL. There is a LOT of stuff in your lecture that can be put right into someone's act. You should be very proud of yourself.” -John Luka
“GREAT lecture last night. I really enjoyed your routines. I especially appreciate the speed in which you went though the material. You kept it moving and entertaining. I'm excited about several of the things I saw and will be working on them very soon.” -Shep Hyken
What will he teach?
Archer’s routine and handling of the classic Bank Night plot.
A stand-up sleight of hand effect with a small rubber ball. It appears, vanishes, and changes color in a magical, fast paced routine.
Four spectators are asked to mentally select and remember an animal. With no monkey business or horsin' around, the magician correctly reveals all four mental selections!
Pick a Coin... Any Coin...
From a small bag filled with change, the spectator selects a coin, initials it and returns it to the bag. Using his incredible sense of touch, the magician finds the coin.
It's two... two... two tricks in one. You can perform it as a card revelation or a packet trick. Either way, it will knock them for a loop when the backs vanish and there are Eye Charts in its place.
Duplicate a spectator’s drawing using nothing more than some business cards and a pen.
Four selections fly from the deck and appear in four different pockets… instantly they return.
Dye and Dye Again
A red silk is passed through the hand and changes color. New touches on a classic effect.
A chop-cup style routine, done with a jigger, cherries and a funny final load.
The performer divines the name of a mentally chosen movie. It’s Oscar time.
Who is he?
Danny Archer started doing magic as a hobby when he was 29 years old. In 1988 he left his job as salesman with Apple Computer and started to work at the Philadelphia Magic Company. Here Danny learned a lot about magic and magicians and it was a great starting point until the company folded in 1991. Danny went back to work in the real world and then in March of 1994 he relocated to Denver, CO. He was working once again in computer sales when he suffered his first heart attack. In the recovery room he realized that he was not doing what he wanted with his life and he decided to give magic one more chance.
To supplement his performing career, Danny marketed his first trick, Eye Exam, that has been a wildly successful card trick right from the start. Spurred on by the success of Eye Exam, he released more tricks to the magic community (Birthday Banner, Grandpa’s Deck, Animental and now has over 24 effects and DVD’s on the market.
Danny’s lecture has taken him around the world and all over the US. He has lectured in thirty countries worldwide and he has performed at a number of convention including; IBM national convention, British IBM national convention, Tannen’s, Hank Lee’s Cape Cod Conclave, A1 Convention at the Capital, Atlanta Harvest, Magic Spectram in Montreal, Winter Carnival in Gatlinburg, the Blackpool Convention, FFFF in Buffalo and many, many more. He also runs his own mentalism convention, MINDvention with his partner Robert Allen. His material has appeared in publications like; MAGIC, Linking Ring, Genii, Channel One, MUM, Infinity and several international magic publications.
For the past six years, he has been under contract and working in the ski resort of Vail, CO performing close-up magic five to six nights a week. His magic is visual, dynamic and created to be performed in real world situations. He uses simple props to present magic effects that most people have never seen before (and of course, a card trick or two).

I have watched many penguin lectures in the online format and Danny Archer's lecture had some of the most useful and practical effects that I have seen. When you watch a lecture you hope to pick up one or two effects, but for me it was a gold mine of material. I already put one of the effects in my table hopping lineup and it has gotten rave reviews. I have been performing for over 35 years and just love the ability to download and watch these lectures at my pace. Kudos to Penguin and BIG kudos to Danny Archer!2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.

I was struck by Danny's preparedness, smoothness and his audience management. There's a reason; Danny performs for real people, A LOT ( 6 nights a week at an upscale resort ) A full weekly schedule makes performers like him sharp. He's put in his 10,000 hours.2 of 3 magicians found this helpful.
He taught soem great commercial routines that can be used strolling, restaurants or for friends and family.

I had never heard of Danny Archer but now I curretnly use the coin production, Animental, and the Drawing duplication with buisness cards from this lecture all the time. Lots of variety and very commercial material.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Great - Real World Magic for Real People Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 16th, 2013
Danny Archer is a true "working" magician. While many of his effects may very well fool magicians, his primary focus is on fooling, and more importantly, entertaining real folks in real situations.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
As a strolling table worker, he has perfected effects that amaze, entertain and allow him to reset for the next table or group instantly. This is high quality stuff!!
Additionally, many of his effects will play to larger groups -his mentalism effects are brilliantly easy and are guaranteed to fool everyone.
Forget the effects that require 27 slights to make happen - fool real people with ease. Highest quality - totally practical miracles you can carry in your pocket. Spend the bucks - learn the tricks. This stuff will make you money and build your rep!
Wonderful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 13th, 2013
As french magician, i am very happy ,to meet you ,in a vidéo ,Danny ,with your magic.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Many very good tricks,and i have loved very much your two tricks,with business cards.
i like mentalism without props,or , only,with few pens , and white cards. ( if you have others things to show me,it will be wonderful).
I also find, very intelligent the mental trick, with the animal's cards.I shall go and reproduce it,but there will be a long time for me,to build the cards,with pictures....
About the coins,the idea is good,but i think that to put the coin( in fact an other coin) ,at the end,in the spectator'spocket,could be risky,because he could want to see it.
Applause ,Danny,you are very good ,and ,more,you seem to be a very kind man...

I meant to get back to you days ago regarding my latest order - I have been a bit busy.BUT here it is.
Myself I found Danny Archer's Instant Download excellent from him looking good,demonstrating well,and kept it moving.
My favourite effects would have to be ,''Big Bill'',''Animental'',''Drawn Again'',''Sneak Preview''(the Mark Strivings idea is excellent) which i will definitely use;the best part is that all the above effects can be performed either close up on a platform or stage.Excellent work and thank you Mr Archer.
