"David Williamson is a hilarious, entertaining and one-of-a-kind performer! Not only my favorite magician to watch but his ideas, teaching abilities and skill level are just as amazing! An investment in magic you can't afford to pass up!" -Bill Malone

"1. I think it's RIDICULOUS that this material is available for the fraternity. It's RIDICULOUS how talented David is, it's also RIDICULOUS that he's willing to share this treasure of material with his friends in magic. David Williamson is very serious with his comedy and we all love him for his dedication to the art.

2. Where are the Duke Sterns, Karrell Foxes and Jay Marshalls of today... they all live in the fertile creative mind of David Williamson. I am so proud to have him as a friend, especially knowing I influenced his 'style' of entertainment. We all benefit from the genius of David's talent. Don't miss out on this truly extraordinary gift of sharing.

3. All great comedy magicians are true artists...they have studied for years to find out what works and why. While you're laughing and being entertained by someone 'special' like Dave Williamson, you are being fooled as much as a lay person. What a treat to have David Williamson as one of us.

4. David Williamson is a humble guy, he does what he does because it makes him happy. He doesn't care about being famous, he just wants you to be part of his world of laughter. If he wasn't a magician, he'd be a jazz musician because he can jam with the best. RIDICULOUS is exactly how he works but LIKE ABILITY is why he's so successful!

5. David Williamson SUCKS!"
-Tom Mullica

"David Williamson is an utter failure. He has spent his entire life trying to convince others that he's not a genius. He's not fooling anyone." -Derek Delgaudio

I have everything video/dvd, lecture download David Williamson has ever released and the Ridiculous DVD set is miles ahead of them all.

David is filmed performing for a live audience and he's funny, brilliant, all the things we love home for....

......BUT, the star of this set is the highly detailed instruction on critical sleights and mis-direction he uses in his work. You WILL become a better Magician after watching this set. Like a great book, it's a set you will revisit often.

It's gold, just get it!

i have bought 10 dvds on mentalism to card magic and this one really standout trust me it has every thing you need to be on stage and the best part was the way he presented them hilarious yet respectable humble and nice.

his card magic stuff uses some advance skills i recommend looking into his 4th dvd 1st rather than 2nd dvd

non card stuff i good you might have seen it on stage before but his methods are different and versatile.

highly recommended

Being a big fan of Williamson, I had high expectations going in; I was not disappointed. You really can't put a price on the insight offered here from a true professional. While some of the material has been shared by Williamson previously, there are more than enough extras to make up for it. Four discs, and hours of very strong and (more importantly) entertaining magic. Professionals and hobbyists alike, we can all learn from this fantastic set. Highly recommended!

Ridiculously Amazing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 9th, 2014
David Williamson is ridiculous. He's ridiculously funny, ridiculously skilled, and ridiculously natural when he's performing. You can learn a lot just from watching his performances, but he's also very insightful when teaching and explaining sleight-of-hand. This DVD set is completely crammed full of material. It will take you forever to watch the whole thing, and you will still be finding new things when you think you're done. There is a complete section devoted to his stage routine, a section for his card work, a section full of noncard work, and a series of very entertaining interviews. Basically, it's ridiculous how much material you get with this set, and it's all ridiculously good.

Excellent Report this review

Although there's a lot of overlap with Dave's previously releases (specifically, Sleight of Dave 1&2), these DVDs are still worth getting if you're a Williamson fan and are working on any of his effects. The tricks themselves haven't changed much but he gives little bits of advice here and there which I'd not heard previously, so I did feel I got my money's worth. However, if you're mainly looking for new Williamson material, you might be a little disappointed-- I think his best work can already be found in the Sleight of Dave discs.

I have a couple of these sets and have felt they have fallen a little short of my expectations. However this one lives up to every expectation. The value in disk one and four alone I would argue are worth the price of the full set. Put the magic aside that you learn on these disks for pure entertainment they cant be beat, my girlfriend wondered why I was laughing so hard at a magic DVD. Although I haven't begun started learning from all the disks, I have watched all the content and there is so much usable and workable material that I can see fitting into my act already. Pure gold!!
