"Chris is the real deal. Original presentations that will grab your audiences and not let go. Highly recommended.” - Bob Cassidy

“Chris is a creative, original thinker and a truly great performer, his skills and talents mesmerised me. I highly recommend you all to see him in action.” - Uri Geller

"I'm a fan of Chris Rawlins. He knows how to create amazement and he will inspire you to do the same!” - Marc Paul

What will he teach?



In this lecture you will learn how to reveal numbers from a spectators credit card that you never see or touch - during part of an entertaining and playful routine. (Credit Guard)

You will learn how to duplicate a spectator's drawing under fire with Chris’ approach to the stage drawing duplication - this method is fail-safe, solid, workable and so simple. (REVEAL)

You will learn Hack - Chris’ approach to the classic Al Koran Newspaper Test - a no memory, very easy solution to Koran’s original Headline Countdown.

You will learn a direct, simple, but fooling, Lottery Prediction effect. (Lucky Lottery)

A beautiful and baffling thought-of name revelation that can adapted to all situations, where there are multiple moments of amazement for the spectator having their mind read. (Flutter)

Chris will also share Drop Card - a method that has literally limitless possibilities. The routine shared allows a spectator to guide another spectator to a thought-of playing card, whilst their eyes are closed and you do nothing.

Amongst the effects, Chris will touch upon why he does what he does, and he will also include other options and alternatives for the above effects. One example being, how you can alter his newspaper test to become a very fair and fooling newspaper prediction effect. He will cover how to stage his routines and how to get the most from the spectators on stage with you, whilst going into great depth when explaining each effect.

Chris loves people's input, he loves to answer questions, and once he has shared the effects mentioned above, and much more, Chris will answer any questions submitted in as great detail as possible.

Who is he?



Chris Rawlins is a 24 year old Professional Mentalist from the North of England who, whilst studying English Literature at University in York, realized that what he really wanted was to make a living from performing. Chris’ passion for Magic and specifically Mentalism has lead him to meet and work for some very interesting people over the past 8 years.

In 2010, Chris published his first manuscript Mind Experiments, with the guidance of Kenton Knepper, which received critical acclaim from the Magic and Mentalism community.

Since 2010, Chris has shared more of this thoughts in various forms. 2012 saw Chris’ release of Roulette, a book full of Mentalism routines and some theory that received great acclaim and comments from Bob Cassidy, Luke Jermay, Graham Jolley, Mark Elsdon, Marc Paul, Banachek, Peter Turner, Colin Mcleod, Chris Cox and Luca Volpe, to name a few. Roulette has since seen a second printing, been released as an ebook and also been recently translated into French.

In 2013, Chris spoke at the much respected Session Convention, about the release of his clipboard peek REVEAL. Luke Jermay said REVEAL was and is “the ultimate clipboard glimpse.” This, like the rest of Chris’ work, received fantastic reviews, acclaim and comments from the Magic and Mentalism community.

Soon after The Session, Chris toured Europe, lecturing all over France, the Netherlands and beyond.

2014 saw Chris release his first stand-alone DVD set with Vanishing Inc. Magic, Leading Thoughts. Featuring live performances of effects from Chris’ catalog, alongside some previously unpublished routines and ideas. Bob Cassidy, Luke Jermay, Mark Elsdon, Michael Murray, John Archer and Graham Jolley have all highly recommended Leading Thoughts, and it continues to receive great reviews on the forums.

In the past 5 years, Chris has gained a strong reputation for creating modern, unique and creative material. Currently Chris works full time as a Mentalist and Performer, entertaining the real world, and sharing his routines, methods and approach to Mentalism in the Magic world.

If you could ask ONE question to one of the world's most creative professional magicians, what would it be?

Some Good Effects Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 9th, 2015
The Credit Card, Reveal and Newspaper Test effects have significant potential. Lucky Lottery was weak. It does not produce a lottery ticket, only the scratch sheet you use to select the numbers. Flutter is also weak and the routine was drawn out. There are numerous better methods to peek a name and even when you get the name, it is a "so what." There is no WOW factor. Drop Card is not strong because the method is weak - I don't want to expose the method here, but many top mentalists won't use this because people will talk after the show and the method will be exposed. This causes your reputation to go down after the performance, especially if you do corporate shows (which is the bulk of what I do). I gave it three stars because there were three effects that I thought have potential. On a positive note, Chris is likable and uses humor well.

A lot of people say mentalism is boring. Now I know why they think that. Because they were probably subjected to this type of mentalism. People aren't dumb, they know the props are gimmicked, just because they're not sure how doesn't make it magic. In all honesty some of these methods may be useful, but without a good presentational ploy they will be flatter than day old soda which is exactly how they are presented here.

Still to many stars Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 18th, 2016
This is beyond bad.
He's unprepared, sloppy, nervous, uncomfortable, boring, and uninspiring.
Imagine Luke Jermay's worsening arrogance, without a fraction of his skill.

I'm also getting tired of these charity reviews.
Intentional, and not.
I don't ultimately care, if the guy that just wasted my money, is a nice kinda guy.
Let me restate my review;
This offers nothing.
It's bad mentalism at it's finest.

I wish everyone would give honest feedback more often.
Thanks to those that do. (and Penguin for sharing them)

Ciao!

Great material Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 24th, 2015
If you're serious about mentalism I really recommend this lecture. I think some people are missing the point here. If you're just buying a lecture to be entertained, go and rent a movie from Netflix. It's cheaper. But if you want solid routines, well thought out methods and real 'workers' you won't go far wrong with this. These are real world effects for real world audiences.

Well worth the time to see a man who knows his craft Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 7th, 2015
Firstly may I say it was an absolute pleasure to see and learn from this young man. His presentation style is engaging his pacing is excellent with a good flow. He was understandable and informative.
Why do I go on like this......Because I was viewing a lecture.
A series of demonstrations followed by instructions and insights topped off with food for thought.
When I pay to see a lecture. I expect a lecture and I certainly wasn't disappointed.
All of the material shown was workable an usable. To the lay person his work displayed the skills of a mentalist (perfectly believable) with no obvious gadgets.
His humour is subtle as is his character. Which makes him in my opinion more credible as a mind reader.
I found the subtitles he gave for the reveal for me made it, now 100% safe to use.
The effects have been discussed by others so I will bore you no further.
I would recommend this lecture to the Novice, the Intermediate, as well as the more experienced.
Another thing he brought to this lecture was a fair amount of modesty and
Sincere thoughts towards his supporters.
Yip I've got his DVD and Reveal. And would recommend them to.

Not for everyone but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 16th, 2015
I saw many people moaning about Chris' style of performing... In my opinion he is such a nice man. Maybe his presentations are little specific but you have to remember that you should modify to make them fit your style.
Anyway Chris provides solid&simple methods that are surefire and I know that I'll give some of them a try.
What is more Chris is sharing his Reveal which alone is worth the price of the lecture. In my opinion it's the best low-tech real time peek.

The reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is because there wasn't anything that I haven't seen before.

And there are some moments that are just too long in explanations :)

All in all you can find here a few sparks and ideas that may inspire you somehow.
I really enjoyed watching the lecture.
And thank you Chris for answering my question!

Hard Hitting Mentalism with Great fun Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 30th, 2015
A very great lecture with very intricate explanation by covering each and every bit and great fun along the lecture .
Each and every effect FOOLED me badly. The most amazing of them was flutter where the name(a person is merely thinking from their life)is revealed and also liked REVEAL drawing duplication effect which was the Most CLEANEST drawing duplication i have seen........really.And I also like the principle behind drop card and surely use it.I have never seen chris performing and it was my first time and I was truely amazed.
I cannot recommened this any more. I guarentee you that you never regret buying this.

Fun Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 26th, 2015
Although most of these effects were geared towards stage and I'm a hobbyist who performs close up for friends, I enjoyed Chris's low key, personable style and approach (not everyone is going to be Max Maven) as well hearing about the thought processes and evolution of the effects.

In terms of things to try, I unfortunately missed Credit Guard, but enjoyed the playing card effect at the end.

Highly recommended for people wanting to broaden their understanding of how mentalism can be approached and performed. Nice Job Chris!
