"Mark Elsdon is on a very short list of magic and mentalism's most creative innovators. When Mark let's me in on what he's working on, I'm ALWAYS fooled badly and find something to add to my own work." -Bill Abbott
What will he teach?
The perfect opener, super-visual fooling magic that sets the bar high.
A practical, any-deck, any-time, on-the-fly four card coincidence. A Bill Goodwin favorite!
No Way! Two-way
An impossible prediction that WILL fool you.
This is the trick that Mark uses to close every private party. Paul Vigil said: "One of the strongest and most clever uses of The Invisible Deck I've ever witnessed. It went directly into my performance repertoire."
The full work on Mark's incredible blind-folded Rubik Cube solve, the closer in his stand-up show.
A great pocket trick for when you don't have a Cube with you.
A worker of a book test, that can be done with ANY book. Perfect for cabaret/stand-up.
Memorise a shuffled deck, and a participants voice patterns in under 10 seconds. Clean, direct mentalism.
Straight mind-reading with playing cards. Not all mentalists like this kind of thing, but all audiences do!
Mark gets to eat his favorite chocolate bar, and no one can stop him!
A perfect anytime, anywhere triple prediction using whatever is to hand... and some cunning linguistics.
The perfect way to hand out your business card.
Background and suggested reading. Theoretical basis plus practical approach. Tips for learning to become an expert.
Conversation As Mentalism
Six killer mentalism effects that you can perform anytime, anyplace and without any props! These effects and more have been designed with one outcome in mind – to amaze whoever you are talking to without the aid of any gadgets, gizmos or gimmicks.
Plus practical tips on how to make yourself much more memorable, opinion about why most mentalism is so terrible (and what to do about it!), a bona fide unpublished Peter Kane trick and 6 tools that WILL make you more creative. AND, against better advice, he will explain how several of his marketed effects are done!
Who is he?
Mark Elsdon has been performing magic and mentalism professionally for 25 years. Recently, he's started to get quite good! He has authored dozen books and many, many more single-release tricks and has been a popular lecturer throughout Europe and the USA for the last 15 years. He focuses his creativity on devising powerful and memorable material that is designed to end up in your repertoire, not in your junk drawer. More recently he has been writing magic for TV and thus has finally found his true calling: indulging the demands of people who have even bigger egos than magicians!

I've been going to Magic lectures for nearly 50 years now, this one tops them all. For me, this was the best I've ever seen. If you think you've seen it all, You're WRONG! I subscribe to "Penguin's All Access Pass" so this lecture only cost me $10.00 It acutually gives me the guilts, had I been there live, I would have tipped him at least a fifty.7 of 7 magicians found this helpful.
Every effect taught is top shelf, nothing is held back. He even tips his hat on several of his effects that are still on the market. Four hours long, and still it leaves you wanting more.
It makes no difference what your interest is, you will learn a lot about what an audience wants and how to achieve maximum impact with the effects taught. There's some card work, but no knuckle busters.
This lecture is really a nice mix of Magic and Mentalism. Mark's work on TRULY Improptu Mental effects is worth the cost all by itself. He calls it:Conversation As Mentalism and has a book of the same name, sold here on Penguin. He teaches three effects from the book that just kill. I ordered the book imediatly following the lecture. Can't wait for it to arrive.
He has done some of the best work I've seen on the Equivoque, in my opinoin the best I've seen anywhere. Using his methods, even those in the know will be fooled badly. He is so natural, and after viewing this material, you will be to. It WILL change the way you work the Equivoque.
Overall, I can't say one bad thing about this lecture. I can't recomend this enough. You simply won't find a better value in all of Magic. I dought you'll ever see a negative review on this one. I can't wait for "Mark Elsdon Live Two"

This was a pleasant surprise.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
If you don't have The Inevitable already it's a "worth the price of the download" effect. There's a very much "down at the local pub" persona that Elsdon has but there's a lot of refined thinking behind it.
Terrific work on equivoke that's up there with Maven's and Quinn's.
Just get it! Report this review

I wasn't really a big fan of Mark Elsdon until I saw this lecture. He is very insightful, clever, and really funny! I really got a whole lot of value from this lecture and look forward trying some of his routines for laypeople, especially The Inevitable! Looking forward to his second Penguin Live lecture and I'll show up in person for that one!1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

This lecture was fantastic and Mark's information and take on Equivoque was worth the price of the lecture. The tricks and stories he has are wonderful and I look forward to putting more practice into the effects he taught. GET IT!1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.

This lecture was brilliant and I'm surprised others haven't reviewed it yet!1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
I'm a working pro and every effect in this lecture is a worker. Just brilliant.
He's so down to earth and genuine when he performs. No wonder the other creators in magic love him.
