“David Regal’s magic is just sensational.” - Jim Steinmeyer

“David Regal is diabolical.” - Lance Burton

“David Regal has been a wellspring of clever magic ideas for more than 20 years.” - Jamy Ian Swiss

“David Regal’s approach to magic made me one hundred thousand dollars.” - C. Thomas Howell

What will he teach?



To set this lecture apart from the standard show-a-trick/teach-a-trick format, David has decided to break down a complete act he recently performed in the Close-Up Gallery of The Magic Castle. He will discuss the methods he uses to assemble an act as well as the methods of the effects performed. Topics will include:

  • Why Perform an “act”?
  • Establishing a Theme
  • Premise
  • Bookending

  • The tricks will include:

    Clarity Box – Customizing the box, its workings and applications, plus a new routine.

    All-Good Card Warp – The classic effect… with all the hinky parts removed.

    Return of The Miser – Jerry Andrus’ brilliant Miser’s Miracle, with a new ending.

    My Friend’s New Place – My popular mouse chop cup routine, with a new easy-to-make prop.

    Close to My Heart – A brand new routine with a pocket-sized photo frame.

    Zig-Zag Card Box – An application of Tenyo’s Zig-Zag Cigarette to a playing card box.

    Who is he?



    David Regal is a writer and magician. He is currently the magic producer for television’s The Carbonaro Effect, and the author of the critically acclaimed book Approaching Magic, in addition to the best-selling Close-up & Personal, and Constant Fooling (Volumes 1 and 2). His magic was also the subject of Star Quality – The Magic of David Regal written by Harry Lorayne. An alumnus of the comedy group Chicago City Limits, Regal has written for shows ranging from Rugrats to Everybody Loves Raymond. He has performed at the Magic Castle hundreds of times, is a two-time recipient of the “Lecturer of the Year” award from the Academy of Magical Arts, and has received the Academy’s Creative Fellowship.

    This lecture is one of my least favorite lecture it was a major disappointment.
    Lecture:
    1-10 minutes Dan talking to David about what David has done and a TINY bit of theory
    10-30 Performance of castle act
    30-135 Explanation of: His chop cup not much new here from his old routine and his very specific to him
    Card Warp a very setup heavy trick and not many people will be doing this one
    Miser Miracle old and hardly anything new here
    Close to my heart a very intersting trick that has potential but it takes a lot of prep and their are many similar effect
    Clarity Box you almost have to buy the trick from david to use it. He then teaches a card to impossible location using a very well known and old principle.

    Zig Zag box(PERFORMANCE ONLY) REALLY YOU ONLY EXPLAINED 4 TRICKS THAT YOU CAN USE AND THIS IS PERFORANCE ONLY. This is probably his best idea

    Then he half way explains Change for a Five. This can be found in better places DST and Approaching Magic.

    Hotel 52 PERFORMANCE ONLY AGAIN REALLy

    Then he and dan talked for half an hour about the carbonaro effect

    Thats it about it. This is very disappointing when you know David can do WAY better. The theory was also disappointing nothing that I haven't heard and there wasn't much of it

    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 25th, 2015
    I am surprised to read these reviews that this was a great lecture. I felt like it was just a promotion for the clarity box. I didn't like a single trick . He just performed 3-4 tricks, all of them are 100 years old and boring. He sure added some twist but still doesn't make up for it. I am surprised that he was able to stretch it for 3 and half hours by repeating same point over and over , " PREMISE IS GOD".

    Great Lecture Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2015
    This is a great lecture. The routines are entertaining and well thought out. The explanations are precises and explained in detail without fluff.

    ....but the real gold is in the discussions with Dan. Intelligent, inspiring and thought provoking.

    What more can you ask for?!

    The best magician! Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 1st, 2015
    What can I say, he is a genius. Too much to learn.
    This was awesome.
    Look what he does with a Tenyo magic!!! He thinks out of the box.
    Clarity box... he was the first one, then others tried to do some copies.
    The best of all is to figure out how he thinks.
    Great DAVID!!

    Great "How to" Theme Your Act Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2015
    David Regal performed and explained some great "tricks." However, the big take-away for me was his emphasis on how to cohesively and uniquely theme your act. That lesson, alone, was well worth the price of admission

    Slightly flawed, but still terrific Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 28th, 2017
    The performance was a bit shaky in spots, but the material and theory are top notch, and Dan Harlan keeps the interview interesting. David's thoughts on premise are essential to great magic. I enjoyed this video and will watch it often.

    GREAT Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 25th, 2015
    This lecture will make you more interesting... Well maybe.

    This lecture talks about taking a trick and making it theatre. It's a great lecture and David talks about Premise which he believes is completely necessary. I totally agree with that statement.

    When you watch David perform people listen and are engaged. He makes them laugh along the way and basically gives you his full act he did at the Castle and explains the hows and whys.

    I COMPLETELY disagree with the comment saying it was an advertisement for the clarity box. In fact, David shows a method with the regular opaque container you could easily make at home.

    If you are a person looking for tricks... Sure, he teaches some really interesting stuff you may like for a parlor performance. Honestly though, you'll never be satisfied with your journey if all you do it buy the "next great thing."

    Instead learn how to make your magic more interesting and engaging. You can start that journey by getting this lecture and studying his approach.
