"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

"Mark Elsdon is a renaissance man in magic. He is equally adept at inventing, performing, creating, and theorizing about magic. He consults for television, lectures, and performs, all with equal proficiency. And, he's one of my favorite guys to watch." -Joshua Jay

"I've known Mark for over 15 years, he is a fantastic magician in his own right, his effects are clear of clutter or too much process, something he taught me to reduce years ago. He always has a fresh angle on classics and creates some of the best commercial effects I've seen. I love his creations but also love watching him perform. We are in for a treat." -Marc Spelmann

“Mark has plenty of first-hand knowledge and practical performing experience to share, and he genuinely loves teaching, demonstrating and sharing his passion for what’s possible in the worlds of magic and mentalism." -Ian Rowland

"Mark gives one of the most inspiring lectures I’ve ever seen. I envy you seeing him for the first time." -Marc Oberon

"Mark Elsdon is my secret weapon. Well, he was until I told you about him. He's the first, and usually only, person I turn to when I get stuck. Why? Because he constantly finds unique and practical solutions to creating astonishing magic. The man's brain is a goldmine of quality ideas and material. And when not solving Rubik's cubes, one handed... whilst wearing a blindfold, he's out in the real world presenting this stuff live on stage and for performers on TV. It's rare for Mark to give away so much in a lecture like this. So bring a notepad and pay attention." -Colin McLeod

"Mark is one of the most creative magicians I know, with a depth of knowledge and an inherent understanding of what can turn a simple trick into a powerful mind-fuck for laymen." -Quentin Reynolds

What will he teach?



Close-Up

Balance
The perfect opener, super-visual fooling magic that sets the bar high.

Pre-pre-figuartion
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.

The Inevitable
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."

Bring Me The Head Of A Packet Trick The only packet trick Mark does. Created in collaboration with Guy Hollingworth, this nevertheless is not that hard to do!

Mentalism

Rubik Remembered
The full work on Mark's incredible blind-folded Rubik Cube solve, the closer in his stand-up show.

Rubik Predicted
A great pocket trick for when you don't have a Cube with you.

Whacked!

Memorisation
Memorise a shuffled deck, and a participants voice patterns in under 10 seconds. Clean, direct mentalism.

Kings Divine
Straight mind-reading with playing cards. Not all mentalists like this kind of thing, but all audiences do!

Equivoque

Chocaholic
Mark gets to eat his favorite chocolate bar, and no one can stop him!

Tri-mpromptu
A perfect anytime, anywhere triple prediction using whatever is to hand... and some cunning linguistics.

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.

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"
GET OFF THE FENCE - GET THIS ONE!

Magic for the Mind that uses your Head Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 4th, 2014
This was a pleasant surprise.

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.

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!

Brilliant, practical magic Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 5th, 2014
This lecture was brilliant and I'm surprised others haven't reviewed it yet!
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.
