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 ;)

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.
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! :)

I loved the rope routine!!!! For me that was the most valuable material on the DVD, it is just amazing good with a super presentation! Mack King is a great teacher but I was expecting little longer card to pocket routine and more ins/outs on performing it on stage. Myself I have my own card to pocket but I do it only in close-up situations. I had a several tries on stage but I can get the reactions as I am getting in close-up.
It was a great material totally worth it to buy it! If you are working as a comedy magician this is for you! Hope there will be a VOL. 2!!!!!!
Brilliant as always Report this review

A nice look at the 'off stage' Man and Magician.
I really enjoyed it.

I can't give it 5 stars because in my mind it didn't blow me away in the way that I was expecting. They really built it up to give me high expectations of it, and while it was good...it just wasn't at that 5 star level.
But if you have a little bit of time on your hands and are willing to learn more about magic (which should be every magician out there), then buy this!
You're going to learn something from this and it is good enough to buy, that is for sure.
wow!!! Report this review

how to get booked in Las Vegas!!! the answer, although in its very simplicity, lies here. Also great practical routines from the very best, both commercial and for friends. Great for anyone who takes magic and entertainment very "seriously".
The Observations make it Report this review

What can I say, hours of observations and viewpoints from whom I consider the greatest Comedic Magician today. The effects alone would be worth the price, but his tips and comments on how to improve your performance and originality, make it worth much, much, more.
Loved, loved, loved it. Report this review

Mac King was absolutely fantastic. He was so generous with his time and experience. There's something that only a man who's done that many performances can really talk about with authority. Also, he's hilarious even in a lecture. A fantastic ride from the first minute. Thanks.
