“Marc is not only a long-time friend but is one of the finest mentalists in the world today. He has performed internationally, on Broadway and is a favorite of lay people and professional mentalists alike. I can't recommend Marc highly enough. He's one of the best in the business.” -Bob Cassidy

"Marc Salem is the Godfather of Mentalism. He is the first performer of our generation to develop a globally successful live show. So if he is going to share some information on creativity, presentations, structure or experience, you better make sure you pay attention. I know I have, and would again. Those who can, do. Those who can’t, learn from Marc Salem." -Colin Mcleod

“Marc Salem is one of the best mentalists around the world. When Marc is lecturing, I listen. I listen very carefully. It's not just the amazing effects he shares. It’s the deep understanding of Mentalism and showmanship. He changed the lives of some attendees from the last lecture I saw. I wish I heard him 25 years ago.” -Lior Manor

"Marc Salem belongs to the rare group of mentalists who actually perform for a living - and the even rarer group who had hit Off-Broadway & Broadway shows." -Docc Hilford

What will he teach?



It is EXTREMELY rare that Marc Salem lectures or shares his techniques, so we are thrilled that he is coming here, to Penguin Live, to do just that.

Marc will teach you a few exclusive effects and techniques:
  • You'll learn proper Swami techniques that you can use whether you're clumsy or dexterous.
  • Learn to use the weather map page of the USA Today to predict what weather condition someone will think of.
  • Marc will show you how to predict an item, chosen and priced by the audience, with a machine PRINTED receipt, yet you don't need to carry a printer.
  • He'll also reveal the easiest, but most confounding, Bank Night ever and... it uses NO GIMMICKS.
  • Plus he'll share some very bad puns and a surprise or two.
So get ready to learn from an entertainer who has traveled the globe exploring the mind and its potential, Marc Salem, right here, at Penguin Live.

A+ mentalism theory and effects Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 28th, 2014
Marc's lecture is PERFECT for those that want to put together a mentalism show, but get let down when they tune in and hear "pre-show" and expensive electronic gimmicks ( Marc's lecture is all organic ).

Marc doesn't do pre-show in his own work ( pre-show work is fantastic, but hobbyists don't feel comfortable using it ). He explains why he doesn't use it ( also why he doesn't even have any assistants ).

Marc teaches the EASIEST add a number method that has a giant payoff. No wallets or fancy gimmicks. Just a pen and index card!

This is one of THE BEST lectures Penguin has ever had!

Delightfully entertaining from start to finish Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 28th, 2014
I knew of Marc Salem's reputation and was eager to check out this lecture. I live about 90 minutes from the studio where these Penguin LIVE lectures originate, so I wanted to see Marc live and in person. I am so glad I did.

Marc has a fluid banter with the audience, and it's as if his gift of gab never stops. He is incredibly entertaining and funny.

His opening effect, The Gift, is one of those nice pieces that can fit in a variety of shows. The performer reads off a series of gifts to his helper, asking if she has any of them. Three spectators write down two-digit numbers. Once the total is added, another spectator chooses on of the digits. It corresponds to a number on the list of gifts. The gift is read, and it is found in a bag underneath the chair that has been there the whole time. Inside the bag there is also a receipt, and it is for the amount the numbers added up to. Nice, fun effect, and Marc teaches a classic principle to achieved the desired outcome.

Marc also performed two book tests. I am a big fan of book tests, and he shared two ungimmicked book tests. If you already use a commercially marketed effect, then having these methods available allows you to add layers and built on a routine. I like the two very much. Also, if you have repeat performances, having these two book tests in your arsenal allows for you to change up methods and books.

Marc teaches a straightforward, ungimmicked Bank Night routine. It is nice and allows for some interplay with your helpers.

One of the principles he taught (though he did not perform a routine using this principle) is how to use a certain kind of business card for a Q&A act. It is based on a classic principle, but Marc has streamlined it in such a way that I people write down the names of cities. I don't do readings either, but this method has me curious. Take your cards and a brown paper bag, and you have a serious piece of mentalism that can run long or short, depending upon your ability or desire. I like this a lot.

The promo material stated Marc would teach a right-brain/left-brain effect that was in the vein of Out of This World. He does not perform it or teach it, however, he mentions what he did with it during his interview with host Dan Harlan. You will need to know the OOTW method and know the difference between right- and left-brain activity to perform it, but it should not be much of a challenge if this interests you.

Marc was delightful, engaging, funny and entertaining. It was a treat.

What a Plus - Excellent Lecture! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 1st, 2014
It was nice to see a guy that you could go out and have a pizza and beer with and then see his show and feel he was the same guy. Very down to earth, funny, and delivered great material, but the gems were not in the material, they were in his insight.
I think anyone who has seen some of these lectures may already know or have recently learned that the pudding is not the trick, it's all of the thinking behind it. Marc shared much of his thinking and insight with an honest, funny approach as is his material, and yet very real world working stuff. One of the best lectures here, so get off your butt, wait you're at the computer; just sit, buy it, and watch it! :)

Wow -- Marc is a thinker. He does like effects that create mystery -- but can be accomplished by normal human beings.

It was great.

JUST ABOUT CLEVEREST MATERIAL I'VE SEEN Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 8th, 2014
I won't lie about the presenter of this lecture, Mr. Marc Salem, he is quite a slow talker, rather unenthusiastic in his presentation...which is unfortunate because the material is so insanely clever you're wondering why he isn't jumping in excitment, slickest add a number piece, cleverest book test material, a genius handling of classical Q & A slips, its just a great lecture if you are willing to add your own excitement to the lecture (because the lecturer sort of failed to be awed by his own genius)

A treat Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 29th, 2014
If you only are looking for new trics dont buy.
But the real valuer is the insight you get and the last hour of the lecture when Mr.Harland and Mr.Salem talked was gold IMHO.
There are a reason why some have success in our art and others (myself included) not so much.
I personally really don't need to learn more effects.
I want to learn how to become a better performer-thinker-constructing a better show etc.

Outstanding! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 29th, 2014
Marc Salem can do a formal full evening show out of his pocket, using only office supplies from Staples. I enjoyed both the methods and his philosophy. He doesn't teach "tricks." He teaches methods, along with philosophy, that enables you to make the effect your own. If you have an interest in mentalism, this is an important lecture to watch.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 5th, 2014
I did get one routine from the lecture that I will play with. To be honest it was my least favorite of the lectures I have seen so far. Marc is a bit difficult to watch with all the swaying back and forth, etc., but as I said there was still at least one item I will play with so congrats for that.

Worth watching Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 18th, 2014
Other than being over talkative with a lot of nonsense that could have been left out there's alot of good stuff to learn here even if you just wanted to use a couple of his ideas it will fit in somewhere in one of your shows. A good watch !!
