"Morgan & West have produced a dizzying volume of original performance material in a staggeringly short space of time. Their performances are original, compelling and unique. I consider myself their biggest fan." - Luke Jermay

"It would be inaccurate to describe Morgan & West as one of a kind, because there are two of them. The result is an approach to magical teamwork that is delightful and innovative. And, by the way, although I don't know which routines they'll be teaching, my prediction is that they'll fool you -- and make you like it!" - Max Maven

"Morgan & West are among my favorite acts. Their material is innovative, their presentations are fascinating, and best of all, their show is so very whimsical. I am in awe of their material, and I will look forward to this unique opportunity to find out more about how and why they do what they do." - Joshua Jay

What will they teach?



The Real Transported Card - Two spectators are invited to the stage, where they select and sign cards. Without the spectators, the cards, or either of the magicians on stage ever crossing the stage, the signed cards impossibly teleport from one side to the other.

Hopes and Fears - Four spectators come onto the stage and are instructed to think of either a hope or a fear. By feeling the backs of the spectator's heads, Mr. West not only deduces who is thinking of a hope and who is thinking of a fear, but also the exact fear they are thinking of.

Balloon Animals of Death - A spectator is given the task of naming a new sidekick for Morgan & West. One by one, balloon animals are paraded in front of the spectator who decides which should 'die' and which one will 'live'. The spectator's choice of animal and name is predicted on a metal nametag found in an envelope they have been holding since the beginning of the trick.

Happy Rotter - Morgan & West invite a spectator to choose any of the volumes of JK Rowlings famous wizarding books, the audience picks a page, the spectator freely chooses a word on that page. Morgan & West have predicted every choice - book, page, and word - but incorrectly. Luckily Morgan & West have a time machine and manage to fix everything with a spot of time travel.

Hearing With The Ears - Mr. Morgan is blindfolded and a spectator brings a handful of change to the stage. Coins are dropped in a glass bowl and Mr. Morgan correctly identifies them by sound alone, culminating in correctly counting an entire handful of change dropped into the bowl. When the spectators driver's license is dropped in the bowl, Mr. Morgan is even able to hear details printed on the card.

Forgery - Morgan & West display four identical pictures of the duo. Three are 'fake' and one is 'real'. A spectator is asked to choose, one by one, which are fake. The fakes are marked on the back for later disposal. Morgan & West reveal that the spectator is correct in their choice not only by way of a sealed envelope, but also because the three "fake" pictures have transformed into a series of increasingly absurd images.

Who are they?



Morgan & West are the world's foremost time travelling magic duo. They make their living performing their stage magic shows all over the UK, and sometimes the rest of the world, as well. Despite both being under the age of 30, they are veterans of the Edinburgh Fringe festival, having performed a new hour long show there every year since 2009. They fooled Penn and Teller on the first series of Penn and Teller: Fool Us and have acted as magic consultants for theatre and television in the UK. They are renowned in the magic community for the amount of thought and originality that goes into their act, and for writing about themselves in the third person.

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

A 'Smashing good' lecture, eh what? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 7th, 2015
These gentlemen produced and excellent lecture showing
their routines, how they perform their magic and then all
the little 'secrets' and 'advice' that you won't normally
find.

They have excellent material and really did a 'smashing good'
program instructing the viewer on more than just tricks such
as finding your Character.

Detailed and presented with a lively pace and good humor.
This is a very fine lecture well worth your time.

Stunning lecture Report this review

(This review is for Morgan & West LIVE)
I didn't know what to expect--or take away--from a lecture by two time-travelling Victorian magicians. After watching this download straight through in enthralled silence, I can unequivocally say that these two guys are geniuses, and it's easy to see all the high ratings.

Of course, you aren't going to copy them, but their small lessons in method, character, acting, and stagecraft are peerless, little wonder from two Oxford-educated former science teachers. It's all very logical and concisely laid out. (They even have PowerPoint to emphasize their points!) Like all of the world's best mentalists, you might be surprised to see that the methods themselves are simple, sometimes very simple, but have tremendous impact. Their work on two-person coding, for those who do it, is off-the-chart great. I can't wait to watch this again with notebook and pen in hand.

In summary, I'd love to see these guys live on stage. They are smart, funny, charming friends who just happen to be the best mentalists--time-travelling, Victorian, or otherwise--around.

If you are looking for sleights, moves or complicated gimmicks this isn't the lecture for you. But if you want to see how a modern double act that are at the top of their game works you're in the right place.

This is one of my favourite Penguin lectures so far.

I have so many things to say... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 25th, 2016
...but these guys leave me speechless.
Every single trick in this lecture is gold for the stage or mentalism performer.
These guys are creative and know what keeping magic fresh is about. The trailer speaks a thousand words. If you enjoy the trailer for this you will totally enjoy this lecture.... If you can't see the trailer, you will also enjoy this lecture. -Stamp of approval-

Great, well rounded lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 24th, 2016
I loved this lecture! Having seen these two perform live and also give a lecture at a convention in the UK I bought this knowing I was in safe hands.

As I hoped this, this 3-and-a half-hour lecture covered many different aspects of the Morgan and West act -
* performances and explanations of routines
* an insight into their creative process
* tips for creating codes from scratch
* handling situations that don't go as expected
* details on creating a character
* tips for getting on well when spending so much time together

Highly recommended!

I absolutely loved this lecture. It is filled with simple, easy to perform miracles. But don't let the words easy or simple fool you. These routines are all well thought out from method to presentation.

If you didn't already want to be a time traveling magician you will once you finish this lecture!!!

Enjoy!

Brilliant. Just brilliant Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 27th, 2015
This is possibly one of my favourite Penguin Magic Lectures. It contains some killer material, but the real worth in this lecture is the knowledge and tips of the approach to successful magic. A rare look at the inner working of one of the UK's best magic acts. Check it out!

Not just effects, but motivation behind them Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 27th, 2015
This is one of my favorite Penguin Live lectures that I have ordered. Morgan and West do a great job of presenting an effect, then giving you detail as to why they chose that particular method of doing it. This is teaching that will help you develop your own routines and especially your own character and personality in your performance. They don't go over as many effects as other lectures, but what they give you is all good.

Even though most of this is centered toward a two-person act, they give you ideas of how a single magician could accomplish most of this with some adaptation of the effect. Definitely time well-spent with Morgan and West and I hope they come back and do another lecture soon.

Profoundly entertaining! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 14th, 2015
These guys are so great! Their performances are so much fun to watch and their methods are very good!

There is some great stuff for mentalists here as well.

There is also some great theory on presentation and magician/mentalist character development.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 12th, 2015
I have been a fan of M & W since I seen them at MagiFest. I was VERY happy to see that they were going to lecture here. I am also very happy to see it was FINALLY a lecture on stand-up/stage. There are a lot of stage performers and it's nice to see a lecture with stuff I will use.

The lecture was both fun to watch and had some great information. I love their talk about building a show. People think too much about tricks and not about who they are on stage. I am a solo performer so not all the stuff I can use but there was so much I could! If you want to take your stage to a better place, then this lecture can help you. If you work with a partner this IS for you. This is the best lecture I have seen in about a year on Penguin. Thank you and I hope you do more stage lectures.
