“Williamson is one of the finest sleight of hand magicians I have ever met. You may not notice this at first, because he is so funny and entertaining, it tends to overshadow his skill, which is second to none. Dave has the talent, and the ability to sell it. If you want to be a better magician, it would be foolish to miss an opportunity to hear him speak about magic!” -John Carney

“David Williamson is my favorite magician. I've seen him lecture more than a dozen times and still he manages to teach me something vital every time.” -Mac King

"When you hear the words funny, innovative, creative, amazing and one-of-a-kind to describe a performance it's a pretty good bet they they are talking about David Williamson. If you get a chance to see him lecture… don't miss it. You will be learning from one of the best in the business." -Paul Gertner

“Most magicians know David Williamson as the funniest performer in the business but they are often not aware of his serious side. Underneath all of the laughter is a very serious student of magic who has developed theories about performing and presentation that are based on thousands of shows. All of us can learn plenty from this master magician.” -Mike Caveney

Amazing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 30th, 2013
First let me say this...

I own all of his lecture videos, his book and DVD's. I'm a big fan so I knew a lot of what was going to be shown... I've seen before.

However, this was the single best lecture video I've seen him do. It was funny, interesting and he is going to teach you what it takes to REALLY work in the real world for real people. You can watch him do the same tricks a dozen times and learn something new any time he does it. Seeing him perform is worth MUCH more than the entry fee here.

You'll see some crossover BUT there is a lot of "in between" things I haven't seen before and really liked. He also gives some GREAT tips on cards and coin work.

We can't all be LIKE him but everyone of us can learn from him.

We can't emotionally scar people like Dave either... That poor kid off the street will never be the same haha.

4+ hour longs. Dan Harlan gave David the opportunity to stop and David asks can he do one more. He brought his "A" game. He never got tired and showed his love of performing and teaching.

David was going to show his salt trick ( Saline Solution ) but didn't want to use a Magician. So, David walked out of the studio and grabbed someone off the street. HYSTERICAL and brilliant! The guy is mesmerized by David's antics! The cups and balls floored him!

ANYONE that performs magic for friends/family, people they don't know or professionally, needs this lecture.

What a wonderful chance to get to know David Williamson a little better than before. His in depth teaching offers wonderful insights into his work and the stories behind the man himself offer an even deeper look into his mind.

Dan Harlan tickles David Williamson here and there to give away even more stories and thinking behind the whicked thinking.

It is the great pleasure to see a real life working magician live, who has done it all and who knows the Who is Who in todays and past days world of magic.

Also, and this was to me the best part, he talks about how he structures his stand-up stuff and what he's actually doing in his regulare stand-up act. These informations took only very little time but to me it is worth the prize of the whole lecture.

And the prize itself to this volume of informations and great routines is a joke.

If you love to laugh and if you love to see one of the best magicians around, buy this lecture: you won't be disappointed!

All the best,

Marc Gloger (Bremen - Germany)

Best Lecture -highest recommendation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 5th, 2013
I am only through 80 minutes of this lecture. The material presented so far is worth far more than the price of admission. You are getting a showman and a superb high voltage lecture rolled up with gem after gem, tip after tip. This is truly a lifetimes experience of a master who has began using Occams razor, eliminating the unnecessary and focusing on presentation. I cannot wait for the next 3 hours. Highest recommendation ever.

5 stars are not enough Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 4th, 2013
If you're a magician you need this lecture in your life. Even if David didn't teach anything here it would be worth double the price just to see a master perform. The real value of this lecture is between the tricks. The little insights on performance, the stories and the humour.
This is an inspirational experience, don't miss it.

Utterly Brilliant Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 3rd, 2013
I knew going in to this lecture that it would be good, but I was not prepared for how truly fantastic it was going to be. The material is solid gold (what else would you expect) but the value lies in Williamson's presentation, his madcap unpredictability and endless reams of energy are a wonder to behold. Methods, Moves, Theory and Storytelling all blended together in a free form lecture worth thrice the price of admission. My only complaint would be that the download link didn't appear sooner, but in the end it was well worth the wait. If you only ever buy one penguin lecture, make it this one.

Not a review Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 1st, 2013
I don't usually write reviews for products because...well... I can't ever be bothered.

This lecture doesn't need a review. The name David Williamson should be enough to press the buy button sight unseen.

It is the best lecture Penguin have done, and is worth many, many times the asking price.

David gives away GOLD, and you need this in your life.

If I could give higher than five stars I would. It's the best money I've spent on magic this year.

David Williamson LIVE Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 13th, 2014
Ir's obvious Williamson knows his stuff, but his comedy fell flat for me and detracted from the magic. I know others loved it, so it is likely just a matter of taste. I had a hard time staying with it because the comedy turned me off. I still haven't finished it, but will try to plow through it to glean the gems.
