Who is he?
John Lovick lives in Los Angeles, where he works as a performer, writer, and theater director. His secret alter ego, Handsome Jack, performs regularly at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, where he has been nominated eleven years in a row as Parlour Magician of the Year (which means he has lost eleven years in a row!)
John is perhaps best known in the world of magic as the author of SWITCH: Unfolding the 100 Bill Change. He is also known for his product reviews and performer profiles that have appeared in MAGIC and Genii magazines.
He is the creator of “The Reparation”, a popular Torn and Restored Card handling that has been a best selling item for the last fifteen years. He is the co-author of Aaron Fisher’s The Paper Engine and wrote Experience, and MAYHEW, books about the magic of Jon Allen and Steve Mayhew, respectively.
He has performed throughout the United States and has lectured to magic organizations in Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand, and Malaysia.

3) A clever, spooky, FUNNY Confabulation routine.
4) Card to impossible location ( can be signed )

I live in North East England but missed attending the South Tyneside convention a few years ago when they had Jon Booked. I knew ofhim thro'Bill switch Book , handsome Jack T&R card, blank thought of card trick etc & was a fan. Wish i could have attended convention as his lecture is fantastic. He talks the talk but walks the walk. Very entertaining & knows how & why to do things a certain way.
Even more of a fan now & i am a very knowlegeble working pro. Going to get the Handsome Jack book as well.
This lecture is worth much more than the asking price.
Jon & Penguin keep up the fantastic work.

I'm always impressed his works - his writing ("Switch" and "Experimence" are well-written books), his marketed items("I Dream of Mindreading" and his torn and restored card are winner), his published works (Especially, his works on Labyrinth published by Stephen Hobbs are REALLY great.). And I also really impressed his "Handsome Jack" act - His skill and style are well-balanced and his materials are top-notch.
Now, he teaches some his materials (straight from his "Handsome Jack" act) here. Frankly, I can't believe we can learn great original materials from this seasoned professional. Whenever I learn from seasoned professionals, I just sit up straight and listen to their words carefully. You'll amaze how small details improve performance dramatically .
His performance is always great (make you laugh and baffled) and his teaching style is really clear.His talk session with Mr. Dan Harlan is also really great.This is the lecture I want to not tip other magicians.
You have to make these great A++ materials into your own pieces, but he gives us good advice on it.
Mr. Lovick just announced he will release all his "Handsome Jack" act in book form. I can't wait next chance to learn his materials directly from him.

What a great lecture! Before this lecture I knew very little of JL or HJ but the preview appealed to me. Wow I was right. John is funny, has great presentation and the magic is very strong. Most of the tricks here are for parlour but as John stated, the majority can be done in closeup situation. His act is very polished and the tips and sit down section are real gems. Dan was also a great host.
Top Notch!!! Report this review

Loved it, it was packed from appetizer to dessert! One thing you will bring away from this lecture is that you not only saw a seasoned performer but also someone who can really put magic and the reasoning behind it in perspective, your perspective. I got so much from this lecture. He taught not only some cool tricks but more-so the behind the scenes thinking (scripting, premise, etc.) that proved to be invaluable. If you want to perform for others then just get this lecture, you won't be disappointed, I'll buy ya a drink if you are! :)
Great on a number of levels Report this review

Not only were the tricks that John explained very good, but his advice on scripting, equivoke, and a number of other thing were very good. His work on building a character is fantastic.
If you are looking for good stand up material, good advice on being a better performer, and good material on how to make tricks "your own," this is the lecture for you.
A fine way to spend a few hours, and the watch it again.
