And to top it off, he is a real world performer. There is A LOT to learn from the very clever, quirky, talented Tomas Medina.” -Richard Sanders

“A lot of people think they can perform magic. Tomas not only performs tricks, but, more importantly, he also knows how to entertain. He's one of the funniest performers I've seen in a long time, and his magic is wonderfully practical. He's my new favorite magician.” -Kainoa Harbottle

"When I first saw Tomas perform at the Magic Castle he blew me away with his comedic character, timing and style. He was not only funny but presented some very strong magic that fooled me. A true artist all around!" -Tony Clark

Who is he?

Tomás Medina leads a double life: he’s a professional magician, and part-time handsome person.

Tomas has been performing his quirky, engaging brand of comedy magic since the age of thirteen. A regular at Chicago nightclubs, restaurants and corporate events, he’s sworn to use his powers exclusively for the goodness of humanity. Occasionally he makes small buildings crumble, then combs the wreckage for office supplies. He stands three feet tall and is made of solid gold.

With the face of an angel and hands of a God, Tomás has traveled around the country performing a variety of mind blowing stunts with cigarettes, balloons, light bulbs, and even breath mints. Past credits include the opening for Nelly, Mya, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, The Faint,Velvet Revolver, Third Eye Blind, Mix Master Mike, the Ravonettes, and Joey’s eighth birthday (in Hinsdale , Illinois ).

Tomas' past corporate clients include Home Depot, BMW,Cadillac, Chrysler, Columbia College Chicago, Lewis University, The Magic Castle Hollywood, Robert Morris College, Illinois Institute of Technology, American Lung Association, USA Cable Network, Miller Genuine Draft, KIA, Anti Defamation League, Dyson, Playboy Magazine, Answers Media, Fox Television, WGN Television, Camel Cigarettes, McDonalds, Butterball Turkey, Cold Stone Ice Cream, BP, Babies R Us, Boy Scouts Of America, Infinity Radio, People Soft, TGI-Fridays, Verizon Wireless,BlackBoard.com, Max and Ermas, Bennigans, Absolute Vodka, and Johnny Walker to name a few.

Tomás’ talents have been featured on 9 instructional DVDs aimed at professional magicians. Other credits include work at Las Vegas’ famous Palms Hotel and Casino, -Al-lstate Arena, BB King’s (New York), and commercials for the USA Network. Not bad for a kid with glasses!

FANTASTIC lecture! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 8th, 2014
Tomas Medina is one of the most clever, FUNNIEST performers in magic and he brought his A game to the Penguin lecture.

He taught many of his pet effects ( and even $30 marketed tricks you can make yourself ).

Tomas taught material for stage, close-up, walk around ( even a mini table act for restaurants ) fairs or busking on the street

Hands down, one of the best lectures I've ever seen with material I will do

Funny guy, goof tricks Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 12th, 2015
This guy is very funny and has loads of one liners. He also teaches a wide array of effects that I'm sure you will use a few of. The cardiologist deck, balloon swallow and razor thread from mouth are excellent.

One of penguin lives best Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 15th, 2014
If you want to know about geek magic, this is one funny way to learn. His teaching is top notch and the effects are as disgusting as they are wonderful. I can watch Tomas again and again.

VERY informative! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 3rd, 2015
This is a wonderfully entertaining lecture.

Tomas is a down to earth guy, so his style of humor isn't overwhelming; even when it is.

There is a ton of what I call great "note taking moments", as well.

I bought this lecture in hopes of getting some new info for the razor blade swallowing trick because I perform my own version, too. I didn't learn anything new there, but I am so pleased with all of the stuff I DID learn that it doesn't even matter.

There's no reason not to ADD TO CART.

WELL? Go ahead....ADD TO CART!

Amazing Lecture Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 6th, 2015
In my opinion this the best LIVE lecture. Tomas' selection of tricks are very versatile.You can go serious or humorous with them. I really like the Sugar Packet trick.The condom trick was hysterical. His teaching style is very entertaining and you pay attention to the whole lecture. Everything was very do-able. The chemistry between Medina and Harlan is enjoyable, you feel like you are part of the gang. I would like to address the gum trick that somebody brought up earlier. It is discussed and revealed on one of the sitdowns with Harlan. I can't recommend this lecture enough. Money well spent.

best lecture ever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 28th, 2014
Tomas medians lecture is the best lecture.you can save at least 30 dollers on this leture but the reson I gave it 4 stars is because he didn't teach the gum trick. But other then the its the best lecture that I have bought or gone to.buy this DVD if your a coin guy,a geek magition,a card guy or even a rope guy.I would recommend it so don't miss Tomas median.I performed the swoloing balloon trick and every body loved it.that is why I give this 4 stars.

I first saw Tomas lecture recently at the Battle of Magicians convention. I even hung out with him in the halls. I was really surprised about the effects he was going to reveal on Penguin Live and along with Dan Harlan, it turned out to be a fantastic lecture! Even though he does look like Rick Moranis' illegitimate son, I say he looks like MONK. Tomas, great job and you da man!

Brilliant...Packed with gems and approaches. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 24th, 2015
Iv loved Tomas`s work for years. Here he really just gets into what he loves and shares brilliant stuff. He expands on how to adapt the routines in Tomas style, a true performer is every sense of the word. I have only got half way through the lecture and decided to write this....Excellent job...Loving it !!
