”Diabolical card work.” -Max Maven
What will he teach?
Howard will be presenting and expanding upon a lecture that earned him the Lecturer of the Year award from the Academy of Magical Arts in Hollywood.
He'll begin with an effect he created for Dai Vernon's birthday which starts like a standard oil and water but takes a very surprising twist at the end.
Then, four kings and four queens get involved in some action and, as the plot thickens, the queens suddenly go missing... leaving the aces in their places.
Howard will then go in-depth into the underused yet versatile Veeser Concept which can be used for a multitude of applications.
He'll also perform a "You Do As I Do" effect using two decks of cards where he'll match a randomly selected card simply by repeating the spectator's actions.
Next, five one-dollar bills are mixed face-up and face-down, then, with a gesture, all the bills instantly turn face-up.
Howard will use a ordinary paperclip to find a selected card and cause one card to change into another between the spectator's palms.
He’ll also do some amazing things with four aces. One where they appear in a mysterious manner, and manage to trap a selected card at the same time. And another where the four aces magically turn face-down one-at-a-time, then suddenly change into the ace, two, three, and four of clubs.
Now the real treat, besides the impressive magic you'll learn, is that Howard will share stories of his experiences with some of the greats of magic. Legends like Dai Vernon, Charlie Miller, Frances Carlyle, Jimmy Grippo, Larry Jennings, Martin Nash, Jerry Andrus, and others.
Howard was friends with everybody who was anybody and he'll share his thoughts regarding the presentation of magic as he learned it from them.
If you could ask ONE question to one of the world's most creative professional magicians, what would it be?

The very best lecture yet Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 6th, 2014
I've bought LOTS of the Penguin Lectures and enjoyed a great deal of them - but have never felt compelled to write anything about them at all... until now.
This lecture is simply fantastic.
It's interesting from start to finish - anecdotes interspersed with great handling tips, moves and effects. It's clear that Howard Hamburg has led an amazing life in the world of magic and counts some of the true greats amongst his friends. There's one moment there when he tells a story about his birthday that is truly touching.
The material taught is great too - and there's nothing particularly difficult; he's kept it at a very straightforward technical level but has chosen some really interesting and inspiring subject matter to teach and discuss.
This really is the VERY best Penguin Lecture I've seen and may even be the best lecture I've seen, ever.
Thanks for sharing, Howard - this really was something special.

I met Howard at the Magic Castle a couple of months ago. He was sitting in Dai Vernon's corner at his "special place." When I was introduced to him he asked me to sit and of course I did. (to sit with Howard where Dai Vernon played with his cards was awesome!) He proceeded to blow my mind with some first rate card handlings. Some of what he did he showed and explained on this lecture, but not everything. The power of his handling was so perfect in person that the next day I purchased his "Howard Hamburg Sessions" dvd. It is totally awesome and has tricks on it that were not covered in the Penguin lecture. Everything about Howard during his Penguin Lecture, his mannerism and laid back demeanor was in person just as he came across at the Castle. I am one of those magicians that believes if you go away with at least "one" powerful new handling that a purchase was worth the cost. There are several effects worth the cost of the "Howard Hamburg Sessions" and this Penguin Live lecture is a true treasure worth adding to your collection. I'm going back to the Castle next month and I hope Howard is sitting there at "Dai's place!"
A+++ card work! Report this review

Howard's card magic looks moveless. One of the finest card handlers and Penguin lectures so far!
"Perfection is no detail... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 27th, 2014
...but details make perfection." This quote from Leonardo Da Vinci first came to my mind after watching Howard Hamburg's lecture. It is filled with tiny little details for known plots, great handlings to familiar effects, words of wisdom one should keep in his magic mind forever and charming memories of his magic life alongside the true masters of our art such as Dai Vernon, Charlie Miller, Larry Jennings, Jimmy Grippo, just to name a few.
I would advise you to watch his lecture with pen and paper, because you should and will write down a lot to learn from him. I heard Howard's name before, but was unaware what a likeable guy he is and what a great value this lecture would be for me after more than 20 years in magic!
If you are looking for great tricks, this lecture is great! But if you are looking for the how's, why's and subtle details, this lecture is phenomenal! Thanks to Penguin for making it available!!

Howard Hamburg's Lecture. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 7th, 2014
I have seen several magic lectures over the past 40 years. Some have been very good. Some have been much less than what I had expected. This was the first online lecture I have ever purchased. I am very glad that I chose Howard Hamburg's to be the first one. Howard's lecture is one of the best I have seen. I think it is one that any cardman worth his or her salt should see.
Thank you Mr. Hamburg, and Thank you Penguin Magic for makine this available.
An amazing lecture! Report this review

I've been to the Magic Castle many times, and I always see Howard Hamburg there in his corner, as much a part of the castle in my mind as the owl, the piano and the secret bookcase.
It's jut an amazing opportunity to hear from a man who's been so much a part of magic history. The stories he has to tell and his connection to the magic greats in just something you have to hear for yourself.
He teaches great routines and has really terrific insight on how to make everything you do with cards better. Jogs, his peek, and his handling of packet work is really amazing. A great, great lecture. I'll be watching it over and over for a while.
Fall in love with cards all over again Report this review

I had never heard of Howard Hamburg and had no idea what to expect. Well, I am grateful to now know more about him and his magic.
As a teen, I performed a lot of card magic and a lot of sleights. I felt that if you were not performing sleight of hand, you were not really performing magic.
Over the years, I got away from card magic. It seems like every lecture and every magic magazine is filled with way too many card tricks.
Having said that, I really loved the effects Howard performed. There is stuff in there for the card magician and the mentalist. Some of the effects you will readily be able to adapt into a mentalism show (if you opt to use cards during such a show).
I loved his stories, and I loved his motivations for doing certain moves. It was a delight. Someone elsewhere called this the best lecture ever. If it wasn't the best, it certainly was right up there.
After getting away from cards, Howard is going to make me fall in love with them all over again.
Thank you Howard! Report this review

5 Stars for the stories alone! Howard teaches the most wonderful effects during his lecture, but the subtleties he uses and other tips he shares had me looking at my magic in a new way. His stories gave me a better understanding of why I got in to magic, how meaningful it is to me now, and the precious moments and friendships experienced and to look forward to. Thank you Howard and Penguin for putting this together.
