Great Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 22nd, 2014
I'm a big fan of Mac King's and this was a wonderful opportunity to hear wisdom of his pertaining to a long career in magic.
I did not go in looking for tricks to perform, but for insights and thinking related to creating and performing. He delivered.
One small drawback, and I'm including this just in case my critique can have any influence on future lectures, is that host Dan Harlan had a tendency to speak over Mac and interrupt him, particularly during the Q&A. I know it was unintentional, and Dan is a cool person, but a good rule of thumb would be: if the guest lecturer is speaking, the host's mouth needs to stay shut :)
I don't want to end my review on a critique, so I will say that topics discussed included: packing light, pocket management, politics (getting along with other performers at a club), spectator / audience management, dealing with bad crowds / bad shows and way more.

Go to see this lecture !
You have a lifetime of work inside ;-)
if you want to win 20 years in your artist's career you have to
Watch and carefully watch this lecture, take notes, take your grandma with you if you want, take the love of your magic and enjoy ;-)
i watched a lot of lectures in Penguin but this Penguin Lecture is a must watch from any point of view, creativity and much more !
A lot of lectures are made by guy who said they are lecturers but i sleep in the first 15 minutes :( ok maybe 20...
Here you feel, even If Mac King is not a professionnal Lecturer like he said the last one was 20 YEARS AGO
BUT BUT he knows the rythm and how to keep the focus in this 4HOURS lecture, it's a fact or a gift but i will say INTELLIGENCE or SMART AWARENESS IN THE PRESENT
SO MAC KING KEEP IT UP
YOU ARE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THE OTHERS AND WHAT YOU BRING FOR US BECAUSE SOMETIMES I AM SO DISAPPOINTED ABOUT WHAT I SEE AND THE LACK OF ORIGINALITY I SEE IN THIS LECTURES
THEY ALL FORGET ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE SHOWING IT'S NOT FOR THEM BUT FOR US ;-)
DAMMMM I LOVED YOUR LECTURE ;)

You learn so many good rope tricks and some funny gags. If you are a stage magician, you should get this.
Still going through it Report this review

I was so happy to see a comedic magician on the Penguin Live Roster. I remember making the suggestion a couple of months ago and I'm so glad that Acar managed to get the Legend Mac King. Thank you.
I am currently only an hour into the lecture and already I can see that it was money well spent. The rope routine where the knot moves on the spec's piece of rope is priceless! I can't wait to see what else he will be doing. I look forward to many more comedic magicians on the Penguin Live lineup.
Great Lecture!!! Report this review

Mac had me laughing throughout and did some really cool stuff, more so his insight was so very valuable. Here's a guy who's been in Vegas for years and knows what works, or even better how to make something work for your audience - taking something that may be thought of as just a simple close-up trick and making it play for hundreds of people and it becomes a miracle. On a more selfish note I would ask Penguin to have the girl with the legs in the audience do a lecture, who cares how good it is, maybe an hour on just producing the same card or coin again and again, no matter how bad her sleights may be, same outfit though... please! :)

4 hours is a long time to spend with anyone. Dont miss this opportunity to learn from one of the greatest. Even the smallest gags that are taught can have BIG impact. If you want to improve your show simply listen to what is being discussed and then do what they say. It's not always about learning a bunch of new tricks, but it is about entertaining people. Thanks Mr. King for this great lesson on comedy theory with a touch of magic thrown in.
I highly recommend it! Report this review

Mac King is a magician with about 30 years of expertise keeping fresh with his tricks enough to continue His Las Vegas Show at Harrah's! I haven't met him myself, however he has a creative mind and hilarious personality.
What I personally took from his lecture was the rope routine and bill to cigarette with matching torn pieces!
His vanishing/ traveling deck trick is rather clever.
After his big tricks, he has many magic gags to experiment on laypeople which I find exciting to try.
If you are thinking of purchasing this lecture, just do it!! You won't regret it.
exactly what we were all expecting from mac king Report this review

a wonderful moment with one of the temples in magic. mas king's lecture is a lot more than learning magic tricks, it's mostly about learning how to becom a great magician. his history and life experience will guide anyone that is really passionate about this wonderful art. it's like sitting in front of a genius and listen to the advice. love it!
Tricks are weak but Mac is great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 22nd, 2015
Do not get this if you are looking for strong tricks. Get this for the valuable advice of a proven professional. This is mostly silly gags that I never see myself doing. But Mac is a creative genius; that is where the value is
Pretty Good Report this review
