“Curtis Kam is a rare combination of exceptionally creative magic and world-class technical skills. Consider me a big fan of his work!” -Andi Gladwin
What did he teach?
Curtis Kam presented a lecture specifically created for this event, designed to deliver the two things you want from the Big Kahuna of the secret tribe of coin warriors; equal parts of Inspiration & Information.
For inspiration, he performs classics from his nearly famous Coin Act including The Goblet, Coercive Purse 2.0, and Six Cylinder.
Also, he performs and teaches:
Hang Loose Coins: The “slack key” fingering for David Roth's famous Hanging Coins that just about anyone can do. All you need is two hands and the ability to lie with them. Because the method is based on a twisted application of finger palm, the angles are no sweat.
Kamnibal Cards: Thirty years ago, Curtis discovered a sure-fire killer closer for any close up set, living deep within every deck of cards. This major upgrade of the Cannibal Cards is funny and surprising, all wrapped up in a deep and satisfying mystery.
Reach: Extending the grasp of the Bob Farmer/Derek Dingle trick you know as the “Little Hand”, Curtis makes the creepy, funny effect happen on the spectator's hand. Or, if you want, the little hand can reach out of your phone.
XSPELL: Most versions of Dai Vernon's Spellbound don't have an ending, they just stop. This one builds to a strong and definite climax that has stunned even the experienced coin masters at the European Coin Symposium. Warning—the price for getting this one right is practice, but it's a solid example of what you get when your finger palm goes up to eleven.
QUARTERMASTER: This is the effect that we all should have started with, but didn't. We would have learned how to manipulate spectators, rather than coins. Curtis will teach the professional routine he uses for strolling and corporate gigs as well as the refined handling designed for social impromptu settings. The pro handling is modular and scalable, allowing you to build to any of three different endings, or all three.
Who is he?
Without bunnies, birds, boxes or babes, master manipulator Curtis Kam creates deep astonishment and pure magic for audiences all over the civilized world. He serves up expertly crafted mysteries and gourmet food for thought designed for modern imaginations. Gone are the tired Las Vegas clichés, the parade of shining “empty” boxes, the vacant, staring animals. Instead, enter the nearly lost world of genuine wonder where ordinary objects do extraordinary things, your card can be in nine places at the same time, complete strangers know what you are thinking and sensible adults do stupid things with a large rat trap.
Kam headlined “Magic in Paradise” at the Hale Koa Hotel for 13 years, performed tableside sleight-of-hand regularly at Dave and Buster’s, Tony Roma’s, TGI Fridays, and has entertained corporate and private audiences in Hawaii for over 40 years. He has designed illusions for “The Magic of Polynesia,” Honolulu marketing and media firms, trade shows, conventions, Ballet Hawaii, and Hawaii Opera Theater. Since 1989, he has performed as one-half of the mentalism and magic team Paranormal Guys with mythical radio personality Jon Kealoha. For even longer, he has created new magic and has lectured to magicians in Milan, Tokyo, Marseilles, Honolulu, California, Melbourne, Amsterdam, Washington, Las Vegas, Hollywood’s Magic Castle and London's Magic Circle.
He owes his education to Yale University (B.S. In Biopsychology) The William S. Richardson School of Law (J.D.) and a sketchy group of grifters, jugglers, con men, comedians and magicians. In his spare time, he is a trial attorney, and has served as magical and legal consultant to the Hawaii Skeptics, advising scientists on the detection of fraud in the investigation of claims of the paranormal.

Fantastic for coin workers and cardicians too! Report this review

Some absolutely brilliant stuff on here. He starts off showing some of his classic effects marketed on his other dvds. These are very advanced coin routines and are brilliant, but not taught on this video, so don't worry.
Here's a brief review:
COIN STUFF -
HANG LOOSE COINS
An easy version of hanging coins, but isn't the most fooling. It has an entertaining presentation and he says himself it is more of an interlude between other tricks.
Brilliant - definitely something I will use and will be something the spectator will always remember.
Fantastic finale to a triple spellbound. I also took some of the moves from his routine to put in some of my own. There are some really useful moves to master in this but to get the routine down smooth itself will be a challenge.
3 coins penetrate a spectator's hand, then 5 at once.
It doesn't get much better than this really - that's four moments of magic in their hands, which could be 4 different spectators. Incredibly commercial.
I've learnt a version already and don't fancy learning his as well. However, he gives great thinking as to how to present it for maximum effect. If you already do a 3-fly, this will elevate yours to the next level!
Brilliant routine with a very nice bit of visual magic right at the start.
Can't remember the full name, but this involves a sea shell named spot and is the most entertaining card trick I've ever seen - it had me in stitches! I highly recommend this and it is also very easy.
The entire deck shrinks, and their selected card is pulled out really shrunk! Then the rest of the deck is restored to size and it can be followed by a series of size changes for the card.
Dan Harlan said this was the most commercial card routine he'd ever seen. It is fantastic and such an unexpected plot for spectators.
Curtis gave a lot of great tips on performing for both amateurs and professionals too. His thoughts on the two performing conditions was particularly interesting.
There is so much workable material in this lecture - I will be adding lots to my repertoire, and even those that I won't, I will be taking moves from within and taking inspiration.

This was an awesome lecture he taught great effects and shared some great thinking. Curtis is an unbelievable magician and anyone who can reach even half his level will have benefited enormously from this lecture. I highly recommend it, even just to learn the 2 card tricks he also taught.
