I watched this lecture with two friends. I hate to say this but we felt that it was among the worst Penguin lectures that we had seen.

Lovell is one of those magicians who is very heavy on patter. Unfortunately, it's cringe-worthy hacky joke patter. An audience can only endure so many bad lines and respond with polite fake laughter until it eventually becomes exhausting. I realize that there's an audience for this mix of magic and "humor" but man, if that's not you, it's painful.

There wasn't anything in the lecture that I'll use. I was interested to see the pass that he created but his explanation and the camera work left a lot to be desired. I won't be using it.

Penguin has lots of incredible lectures. This isn't one of them. Pick another one at random and you'll be much happier than if you spent money on this one.

Not what I expected Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 10th, 2013
It has a few solid routines, but over all the lecture wasn't what I expected. You will learn a few things, but nothing ground breaking. Most of the moves he uses are beginner. Though some of the tricks look far away from being a beginner. The joke and his sense of humor is another story. I think it should have ended with a straight jacket.. ;)

Blues Sisters is a very visual card trick with many different parts to the routine. It is definitely a nice closer. Not really any hard moves in the trick, but there is a lot to remember. If you never learn this trick I am sure you will enjoy seeing it. Also this can be broken down into smaller trick, but I think it work well as a whole.

Another Departed Point is really a nice trick with two impossible revelations.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 10th, 2013
This really exceeded my expectations. The performance tips Simon gave were really special.

He taught a lot of card magic that is WORKER material. There are a couple things from this lecture I will be using!

Stories, card magic, Smedley, paper rose, making magic WITHOUT magic and of course an ax in the face. You're more nuts than Simon if you don't eventually watch this and enjoy it.

Classic Simon! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 6th, 2013
Simon performed and taught many of the tricks he's become famous for ( he even taught the pass he created and used in "Smedley The Great".

It was 3+ hours of magic and fun stories from his ( and Dan's ) past.

It was close-up magic that will entertain any audience!

Such great stuff! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 25th, 2013
Between this lecture and David Williamson's I'm not sure when the last time was that I laughed so much while learning so much. Simon Lovell's philosophies on performance are so incredibly valuable. I don't really have the words to tell you how great this lecture is. Sure, you will learn some great tricks, but you will learn even more about why to do magic, how to create the magic in your audience's mind, not in your hands...if you are receptive to his wisdom, that is. Completely brilliant lecture, worth every penny.
