"Michael's magic is simply exquisite." -Harry Lorayne

"Your handling of the Brainwave effect is just about perfect, sleight of hand techniques have reached such a point that you will never need to perform the Brainwave effect with a gimmick deck ever again." -Darwin Ortiz

"Michael is a soft-spoken individual but his performances amplify this facet of his personality to the extent that one is irresistibly led to conclude that here is a magical talent of noteworthy merit. Underlying this congenial demeanor is a savoir-faire that bespeaks sophistication beyond his years." -James Patton

"Michael Vincent has a performing style that is flawless. In the 30 years I've been performing Sleight of Hand, it is rare that I've seen someone who is able to combine flawless execution, steely assurance and a delightful presentational ability in the unique way that he has. Like Leipzig, he is deadly sure of his success. Like Vernon, he thinks constantly about magic and like Mike Skinner, everyone who watches him ends up liking him." -Steven Youell

"It is always a joy to watch you fluidly play with the pasteboards." -Jon Racherbaumer

Who is he?



There are very few magicians who posses the magical combination of superlative sleight of hand and great theatrical presentation, Michael Vincent is one of the chosen few.

Over the last twenty years, Michael has earned the enviable reputation of being among the top elite of magicians and sleight of hand artist in the world. His sublime magic has been featured at numerous venues around the world for top corporations and international celebrities. He would be the first to admit that great technique counts for nothing if it not supported by a meaningful presentation.

“I believe that great sleight of hand magic combined with a good plot and presentation can make all the difference between the audiences acknowledging that they have experienced something extraordinary.”

It is this simple philosophy has defined Michael’s place in the history of magic. His magic is a tribute to the wonderful artist who inspired him as a youngster. Magicians who were his mentors; Alan Alan, Harry Lorayne, Cy Endfield (Director of the Movie ZULU), Tony Slydini, Derek Dingle, Darwin Ortiz, Larry Jennings and Michael Skinner. Michael was fortunate to meet his heroes and to study the of magic with them. Part of Michael’s on going legacy is to continue the chain of excellence these great master passed on to him.

Great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 4th, 2014
This is a great lecture, whether you are a beginner or an advanced card magician.
Michael Vincent is passionate about good sleight of hand – and about teaching it. This passion shows throughout the lecture.
While many of the routines have been featured on the DVD sets published by Alakazam, the instructions and performances here benefit from great camera work and lighting and comparatively more close-up shots.
Those who own the DVDs will benefit from added new insights, handling points and routines not taught before. ‘Be Honest – What Is It?’ (‘Two Card Monte’), for example, is taught here in exceptional detail and the many magicians performing this in a hurried manner would do good to buy this lecture and heed Michael Vincent’s advice on the use of gaze and body movement. Victor Farelli’s ‘Up His Sleeve’ (with an additional second phase inspired by Darwin Ortiz) was performed, but not taught, on one of the DVDs, but is fully taught here. It is a fabulous routine that would be very suitable for walk around magic. ‘Pasteboard Larceny’ is an outstanding poker routine starting with a genuinely shuffled deck and appears here for the first time.
To those who are new to the magic of Michael Vincent, this lecture is a fantastic introduction and a very handy compendium of some of his strongest pieces, ranging in difficulty from easy (‘Kismet’) to advanced (‘4Play with Foursome’, one of the most powerful card routines you can do).
Finally, anyone will benefit from Michael’s views on how to master sleight of hand, which close the lecture.
Highly recommended.

Buy It Report this review

If you work with cards and you don't buy this lecture... You are nuts,

Michael is one of the best card handler's today and makes everything look magical. He also teaches a MUCH easier version (for those of you who remember Carney's) of the slot machine effect which is amazing.

I loved every second of the lecture and will watch this a lot more. Most of Michael's work can be done with a borrowed deck and so well constructed you are EXTREMELY far ahead.

I love Kismet and is one of the best card effects you can do. If you like the lecture I really suggest you go out and pick up Michael's DVD's and anything else he does.

And next week is Roberto Giobbi! It's a good month to be a card guy :-)

The Master of Cards is here Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 20th, 2014
Michael is a master of his arts.
His instructions are clear and wonderfully performed.

If you are not a card magician, do NOT let this
performance slip away.
Watching his professionalism and how he handles cards will
will show you how "The Masters" perform and this will help with your Magical Art.

This is simply not a download to let slip by.

unbelievable Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 22nd, 2015
This is the cleanest card magic i have ever seen. This will blow your mind.
This is professional card magic at its best just wonderfull to watch.
But very hard to master.
Most tricks use a standard card deck, no trick decks or trick cards involved. Just slide of hand.

Not for the faint of Heart Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 16th, 2015
This is one hardcore lecture, definitely not for the beginner.

Getting that aside, this lecture was worth every penny, and it really changed my mindset about how and why I do magic. He goes how to make card magic memorable, and he teaches some really amazing (if quite difficult and involved) stand up and parlour tricks which have immediately gone into my repertoire.

If you do classic card magic, there is no finer lecture. He talks about books that influenced him, and at the end he does a breath taking 4 signed card Traveller which I am still piecing together. (It was never explained, but the method is literally staring you in the face.)

Amazing, incredible and game changing. I really do think that is the best lecture I've ever purchased. Thank you very much to Michael Vincent for this well thought out AND presented lecture. It was a gold mine.

This is a great video. He starts simple and gets progressively more complex. The routines he performs simply are stunning and you will learn A LOT. Must see. His demeanor and approach to getting people to learn is just right.

Michael Vincent has OCD. OCD in a good way because he looks at every single thing. He is a MASTER in Sleight of Hand magic.

The Gentleman Magician Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 1st, 2015
I thouroughly enjoyed Michaels lecture. He was crystal clear in his performances and explanations. I learned a lot also from his theory's he shared with us. If he does another lecture I will def be watching. I don't really care about learning new tricks because I have hundreds I have that I can learn. What I took from this is how a professional performs and treats people. He seems like a very warm and nice person which comes through in all aspects of his performance. It was a priveledge to watch his lecture for sure.

Inspiring and Informative Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 21st, 2014
I am relatively new to magic and card magic specifically...about 1.5 years in. From the get go of watching magic videos, I was impressed with the elegance and gentlemanly aspects of Michael Vincent.

These four hours did not disappoint. Totally inspired me to continue practicing when you can see how smooth and virtually undetectable he handles the card slights.

And just a gentleman through and through. He showed a number of slights and effects. Most of which at this stage in my magic path are not worth me pursuing until I have more fundamentals down, but I have the video now and will definitely be going back to watch it again and again.

I don't buy many effects or books (I've bought three books) as I like to make sure I make the most with what little I have, but this is a definite no brainer.

Save up your dollars and buy this to watch a great man do great things.

5 stars
