“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
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.

The ULTIMATE magic lecture! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 11th, 2013
Lonnie Chevrie taught everything a close up worker needs: cards, coins, sponges, etc. You could learn a full time act that you could use in professional settings ( restaurant, parties and corporate gigs ).2 of 3 magicians found this helpful.
The magic he taught had so many clever twists and handling, that even professionals are taken in by Lonnie. So, Laypeople have no chance. They are going to be fooled and entertained by the clever plots.

I happened to find this great lecture while looking for something else and decided to check it out based in the positive reviews. I have to agree with the other magicians, this lecture is a tremendous value for the price. Lonnie goes over some solid material and it is evident that he has road tested them all. I enjoyed the variety of material and thorough explanations. Kudos to Dan Harlan too for his comments and questions as well. If you are looking for some practical material that is well thought out don't hesitate to purchase this download.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Strong, practical magic, taught by a gentleman Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 18th, 2014
This lecture is ideal if you're looking for material for walk-around or restaurants. Lonnie Chevrie teaches fifteen impressive and practical tricks that are within the skill range of intermediate magicians. His explanations are clear and detailed. Plus Chevrie is role model: down-to-earth and a real gentleman.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
I'm currently using four tricks from this video (and plan to learn more): 1. "String 'Em Up" The classic Gypsy Thread trick, using a roll of dental floss. Although I can't perform the routine with Chevrie's deftness, it still gets very strong reactions. 2. "A Stab in the Dark." A spectator selects a card, which is returned to the deck and sealed in an envelope. A second spectator then thrusts a small sword (a letter opener, actually) through the envelope. When the envelope is peeled away, the sword is found to have penetrated the deck at the selected card. This trick is easy to perform but looks impossible and has a huge impact. I use it as a closer. 3. "Two Bits in a Bottle." A quarter visibly penetrates inside a small glass bottle and then is magically extracted. This is one of my favorite tricks. It drives certain spectators crazy when they examine the quarter and bottle and can't find a clue of how you did it. Warning: The trick requires bottles of a certain size and shape, and they're hard to find (I've been searching second-hand shops with only limited success). Maybe some enterprising soul will find a supplier and start selling them through Penguin. 4. "Bent Penny." A penny is produced using a "money catcher" (an ordinary magical paddle) and then bends in a spectator's hand. This is classic Chevrie: A simple method with a big impact.

Didn't really know what to expect with this one but was blown away by the amount of commercial, practical material. Bill change, coins through funnel, gypsy floss (which I've been doing for 15 years) and coin in bottle are all worth the price of admission. Absolutely love his coin in bottle. Just wish I could track down the correct bottle.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Changed The Way I perform Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 20th, 2014
Lonnie Chevrie's lecture contains about twenty different effects. I thought that if I got it and used one or two of them it would be worth it. Well I got. I watched and now I use seven of these effects in my closeup routine. I am extremely picky with the tricks I use, but so many from this made the cut. Best thirty dollars you will ever Spend, BUY IT!1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
One of the best card tricks I know now, I learned in this lecture. It is not very demanding, or complicated but the level of involvement from the spectators in "Bob the card trick" gets some of the best reactions I've seen so far.
Excellent material Report this review

Could have done without the "WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" after every single trick. Audience excitement is nice, but seriously, someone staple that kids mouth shut.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
One of my top 5 lectures, Lonnie has material that you can use and adapt easily to your personality. You won't go wrong with this lecture.

Perfect Example of Practical and Effective Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 28th, 2015
Lonnie is a classy performer with a genuine and likable personality. Key ingredients for great magic and even more, better entertainment.
Every trick was practical and great examples that the entertainment stands above the magic. In the end, that's the most important thing to the spectator.

Very impressed by his easy going demeanor and presentations. Learned a lot. This is well worth a buy. The dental floss routine (gypsy string)and his explanations of what works and what doesn't work with audiences is worth the price.
