“Dude who fooled me the most with cards: In 1991, it was Spain’s Juan Tamariz; In 1992, it was Sweden’s Lennart Green; In 1993, it was Chicago Conjurer Jim Krenz.” - Dan Garrett

“Jim Krenz was my personal favorite due to his very likable character and absolutely astounding card work. He brought the house down with his signed cards routine.” - Erika Larsen

“I literally saw jaws drop at Krenz’s multiple signed card revelation.” - Hiawatha

“When I was a child, I was fascinated with the magical emotion that I felt upon watching magicians. I could not comprehend anything—what I would see was impossible; now I love to feel this emotion. It does not occur very often. Normally, I can see behind the curtain—I see the “hidden” secrets and the mechanics. But from time to time a magician performs a trick, or several tricks that seem impossible—and the magical emotion returns. This happens to me with Jim Krenz (how wonderful!). For this, thank you Jim!” - Juan Tamariz

What will he teach?



Los Angeles Opener Jim’s version of the Chicago Opener, which makes the routine directly relatable to the audience.

Devilish Divide Jim’s version of Marlo and D’Amico’s classic, named Devilish Miracle.

A Well-Cut Suit Jim’s version of Jumbo Coincidence, wherein the cards are really shuffled, but still match!

All Expense Paid Trip Jim’s cards across routine, done completely in the audience’s hands!

NeoMix Jim’s version of Oil & Water, with an ending that surprises everyone!

Pen Through Anything Jim’s handling of John Cornelius’ Pen Through Anything, which changes the effect from a penetration into a torn and restored miracle.

Great Lecture! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 16th, 2015
If you are looking for sound, well thought-out, well constructed, and well choreographed magic then this lecture's got it. The routines are foolers, for even seasoned pros and the explanations are clear and concise. (unlike many other lectures we have seen)

This is top-notch material from one of the great pros of our craft.

Get this, you will not regret it.

I went out and did the card across effect and blew them all away. I was surprised by how easy it was to do and kicked myself for not knowing it sooner. I've always done a similar effect but most observant spectators called me out for touching the cards. Krenz's method totally fixes it by putting the action completely in the spectators hands. It's one of those effects that convinces people you've met the devil and learned his ways. Genius!

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 16th, 2015
A 4 1/2 hour lecture with fooling and entertaing card tricks. All the tricks on the list were taught with a few extras. With most of the trick explantations their was some discussion about the why of a trick, and this is what made the lecture worthwhile. I haven't heard much about this magician (except for a reference in Mnemonica). But after this lecture I just want to know what other things this man is capable of.

Excellent Close-up Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 17th, 2015
Jim Krenz is the real deal. If you are into close-up, you will love this lecture. Some effects are perfect for the beginner, while other are better suited to more advanced card manipulators. Most of the material is perfect for table hopping.

This is really an inspiring lecture. Jim shares some incredibly creative ideas and routines along with great advice that comes from years of experience performing for audiences and learning from some of the greatest magicians. There is a lot to be learned from this lecture, and it shouldn't be overlooked.

A true lesson in Close-Up magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 27th, 2015
In the forword to "Cardially Yours Ed Marlo" Simon Aronson writes about "Whats New?" versus "Whats Good?".

People are always asking for the "new" stuff, but the question should be about the "good" stuff.
Jim Krenz delivers the good stuff and if you're looking for one of the rare opportunities to watch and learn from somebody who has learned from the great masters in Close-Up magic, this is your chance!

Jim Krenz teaches so many great routines and gives so much good advice, that this Penguin-Live lecture will become one of the true lessons in magic, that you will get if you spend the time to watch and listen.

To me, this is something lecture is like a good book: you can go back to it over and over again, always finding something new!
