"It's not a gift at all," he'll tell you. "Any child can do it . . .With twenty years practice."

"Bob Cassidy is one of the true geniuses of mentalism and one of the most influential. Period." -Jheff

What will he teach?



Bob offers solid routines, interesting theoretical observations and straight-shooting practical advice. Even if you don't perform any mentalism at all, you will still learn a tremendous amount from his approach and professional insights.

In this Penguin LIVE lecture, Bob will be covering many of the effects from his new book, "The Artful Mentalism of Bob Cassidy, Volume 2: Fundamentals." He'll also be dealing extensively with Q&A routines, billet work, Fourth Dimensional Variations and Swami technique.

Bob will also go over The Ultimate Add-a-Number, Remote Viewing Variations, presentational techniques, Mentalism in the 21st Century, and just about anything else that comes to mind.

Bob's lectures tend to be very free form and are "lectures," not dealer demos or strict effect/method demonstrations.

Bob Cassidy is a repository of wisdom and this lecture will be packed with usable, real-world information that will resonate with magician and mentalist alike.

Who is he?



When asked if his ability is a gift granted to only a few, Bob Cassidy will just shake his head and smile. He knows only too well that it took nearly twenty years of hard work to develop the skills which seem to come to him so naturally on stage.

A native of Kearny, New Jersey, Cassidy entered the world of show business at the age of twelve, appearing on television’s Original Amateur Hour as a magician.

Later, while serving in the United States Navy as a communications specialist, he developed an act in which he displayed his virtually photographic memory and a remarkable sense of intuition. It was during this time that he began an in-depth study of the powers of the mind which led to the creation of the mentalism demonstration he presents today.

After his discharge from the service Bob completed his education and went to work performing for Holland America Cruises, where he honed his skills and introduced entirely new concepts to the art of mentalism. Two hundred cruises later he would write three books on the principles he developed during this period of his performing career.

Since then Bob has performed at nightclubs and showplaces throughout the country. In 1982 he shocked audiences with a telepathic version of Russian roulette in which he could detect, while blindfolded and without touching them, which of four pistols was not loaded. The selected weapon was placed to his head and fired. Of course he had chosen the empty gun.

That same year, while wearing a stainless steel blindfold and using only his memory to guide him, he drove a borrowed Mercedes at high speed through a human obstacle course at the St. Louis Playboy Club.

These stunts led to his first performance at Hollywood's famed Magic Castle, where he has lectured to his peers and entertained on a regular basis.

While his experience and educational background have made him a firm believer in psychic phenomena, he does not claim to use psychic abilities in his shows.

"ESP," he states, "is not an ability which we can rely upon to be convincingly displayed from the stage."

Instead, he claims that his startling performances of thought reading are simply the result of the applied principals of mentalism, psychology and lateral thinking.

If you could ask ONE question to one of the world's most creative professional magicians, what would it be?

Old Wine in Old Bottles Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 1st, 2014
I may be a ‘voice in the wilderness’, but I was quite disappointed in the highly-touted Bob Cassidy Live lecture. There was little new in the almost-four-hour session. With the exception of a unique use for a peek wallet, his other effects have been demonstrated and explained again and again. The three envelope routine, for example, has shown up in at least three of Bob’s books and his earlier Mental Miracles DVD. The same is true of most of the other effects that he demonstrated.

Far too much time was dedicated irrelevant stories about ‘the good old days’. These may have been amusing, but they're not what I’d paid to see. In fact, the anecdotes resulted in a time crunch which forced Bob to run through his routines and explanations very quickly.

Lastly, Bob may be a ‘functioning alcoholic’, but witnessing him repeatedly fill his coffee cup with (what I presume to be) rum and coke was very much out of place. Even President Obama manages to keep his smoking habit off camera.

‘Sorry, but I regret having spent nearly $25 to see the same old-same old.

Disappointing & Disrespectful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 4th, 2014
Whilst I genuinely appreciate Bob Cassidy's contribution to mentalism, I feel aggrieved at paying for 4 hours of wild-eyed semi-inebriated rambling, regurgitated product and punctuated with toilet breaks.

I learnt nothing new from this lecture other than Bob Cassidy has no respect for his audience and apparently not a lot for himself either.

The only 'innovation' over his previously released material was combining "Te**il" with his signature piece, but that was not a great leap for anyone that has actually used this effect before.

At times I felt embarrassed for Dan Harlan, having to plug the holes in the 'sinking ship'. I wish someone had told him that Sandy was actually called Stacey, but how could you not know where the Sh**on envelope was when asked?

I would like to know if Mr Cassidy thought this was his 'finest hour' or his 'swansong'.

The best $29.99 you'll spend Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 30th, 2013
i have a feeling what was shared and taught might be over-looked by some...this was a lecture by a master mindreader, someone who has performed for decades under all kinds of circumstances...listen and learn from his hard won experience....

Routines
Techniques
Methods
Stories
Experience

Mone y doesn't often buy you all those things in the one purchase. Nearly FOUR HOURS worth of Bob Cassidy. The man who consults for tv shows, performed all over the world, and created so many subtle and amazing presentations.

Put your magic tricks to one side, learn to be a natural and confident mentalist instead... be prepared for home-truths, in the field experience, straight as an arrow methodologies yet devious in their execution. Tell people the place they are thinking of, tell people the name of someone dear to them, see how a p*** wallet SHOULD be used. All these things and more are within.

The man blazes with energy even now, he passion and his care for the art of mentalism is there for all to see.

Pay up, buckle up, settle down and take note from the most masterful of all mentalists...9.5/10

Hang out with Bob for four hours Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 31st, 2013
As Dan Harlan noted during this Penguin LIVE event, Bob Cassidy wanted the lecture to be free-form, and it was. I would hesitate to call this a lecture, though there were aspects of that. Bob taught the same effects he did on Mental Miracles, however, this event was so much more. It was like getting to hang out with Bob and pick his brains. I tried to watch the event live, but I had problems with the connection, so I abandoned it. When I downloaded the lecture and began watching it, there were times I regretted I was not able to submit questions (which I would have done while it streamed live). But, despite that, I felt that the questions that were submitted, along with those from Dan and the audience, covered everything I would wanted asked.

There is so much to learn from the conversations. In a matter of minutes, Bob gave a wonderful approach to Jazz Q&A (not explored in-depth, but he gives a way to get at least three questions ahead). It wasn't a full Q&A act, but the pointers were incredible, stuff I had never heard anywhere else. He also, in mere seconds, explains the basics of The Return of the White Dwarf.

Like Richard Osterlind did with his first L&L DVD (in that he basically taught his complete act), Bob essentially taught his act. Wait to you see the new stuff he came up with for his Name/Place Routine.

Also, I have a TeleThought Peek Wallet that I have not used lately, when I heard Bob and Dan talk about making things even more impossible (very late in the lecture), I thought I need to dust off the TeleThought Wallet.

I very much enjoyed this. Some of the language I felt was unnecessary, but that is what you get with Bob. His persona and my persona are not the same, but I learned a lot from him.

Brilliant! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 31st, 2013
This was Bob in his zone! Typical genius and gruff personality! He added an additional touch to one of my all time favorite routines that makes this lecture one of my favorite by far. No surprise there though since Cassidy is my favorite Mentalist period. His insights on theory alone are a master class in Mentalism.

And I must admit, hearing Bob's colorful language while sipping joy joy juice while sitting next to a giant stuffed Penguin was just plain priceless! LOL

The best ever Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 31st, 2013
You can learn more from a drunk Bob Cassidy than any other sober Mentalist in the business...No but really this has to be one of the best of the Penguin Live videos produced to date...I have met both Bob and Dan Harlan, and watching Bob get loaded and drunker and drunker as the video goes on and then watching Dan Harlan get stressed and Nervous and jumping in to become the translator___It took me over an hour to stop rolling on the floor__This is magic comedy history__Loved it...Bob is the real deal and his thoughts and approach to mentalism even drunk is a real learning experience...

Wonderful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 8th, 2014
It's a wonderful lecture. I'm a big fan of Bob for years, so I was already familiar with his work and thinking.
If you search new routines or the last gimmick, it's NOT for you because his core act is time-tested and don't have (need) changed very much, so you certainly have read or seen it yet.
BUT, Bob is a living legend and it's always interesting and fascinating to see a master performing and refining his existing work. I really like the insights and how he delivered his thinking on mentalism. Bob gives a lot of great tips and, above all, he explains the whys and wherefores.

This lecture was VERY GOOD! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 1st, 2014
One of the best I've seen.

I may want to start mixing alternatives in with my electronic impression device.

Very Eye opening with some powerful methods and logical disassociation.
