“Lonnie Chevrie is a GREAT creator and performer of magic. Over the last twenty years that I’ve known him, he has entertained me, fooled me, and taught me wonderful magic effects that I use in my walk-around magic, my close-up show, and on stage. Lonnie has influenced me comically, magically, and theatrically.” -Johnny Ace Palmer
“Lonnie’s magic is visual, practical, and STRONG. I’ve been using it for years, and now you can too!” -Chad Long
“Lonnie thinks about his magic from all angles. His style, dry humor and practical methods are creative, different and very direct. When Lonnie’s talking I always listen.” -Bob Sheets
“Lonnie Chevrie is without a doubt one of magic’s unsung greats.” -Brad Henderson
“Lonnie Chevrie’s ‘The Journey’ is one of the cleanest, easy-to-follow four coin routines that I have ever seen!” -Pressley Guitar
“Staring at the midnight sky and feeling inspired, I picked up a rock and threw it at the moon. A strange thing happened, it made ripples. The difference between illusion and reality is that both are real until you know otherwise. Lonnie Chevrie has captured this secret and is sharing it with the rest of the world.” -Reed McClintock
What will he teach?
The lecture will start off with a typical close-up show and then an explanation of the effects, along with how and why he uses them in his show. Then he'll perform and explain individual tricks and routines that he has developed and used in real world situations over the past (too many to mention) several years.
Lonnie will be teaching his handling of the Bill Switch, a performance and explanation of the real work in the gypsy thread trick performed with dental floss. He'll also show us a stand-up chop cup routine, a bent penny handling that he ALWAYS carries with him in a strolling situation and and sponge ball routine that includes a move that he has NEVER released and will fool most magicians that are familiar with sponge balls.
He'll also be sharing his comedy card routine that involves a live animal trap. Lonnie has never shared the inside workings of this routine with any other group of magicians. This is a solid routine that can be performed close-up, on the platform or even on stage.
Lonnie plans to perform and explain tricks and routines that he has developed and performed in his professional career. He's going to discuss his methods for performing close-up magic in a strolling situation including restaurants, walk around venues, banquets, and trade shows.
Since Penguin LIVE is such a unique venue and opportunity for him, he'll be including several routines that he has never before shared with the magic community. Along with the performance and explanations, he will include the history and influences of the tricks and routines.
Who is he?
Lonnie is currently a working professional magician in Texas. He has won the Texas Association of Magicians Convention award for best close-up magic twice. He has lectured for numerous magic clubs across the country and has performed and lectured at the World Famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. He has five instructional DVD's on the market that are currently being sold by Penguin Magic. His handling of the Bill Switch appears in John Lovicks book, 'Switch, Unfolding the 0 Bill Change' and John once commented that it is one of his favorite methods of the Bill Switch.
