"Chris Capehart says he's a Master Magician, and he really is. He learned his craft on the streets, and then when he came indoors -- wow! He doesn't just work a room; he owns it." - Max Maven

"Thousands of shows on the streets make you strong and teaches many lessons and no one has learned those lessons more than Chris Capehart. He’s taken those lessons and become one of today's top comedy magic performers in the world. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity from a true master of the craft. Chris is truly the best of the best..." - Kozmo

"Chris Capehart is one of the important forces in magic today. He is a fine magician, but more importantly, he is an artist who is primarily interested in entertaining his audiences. Watching his show is instructive in and of itself, but the opportunity to hear him lecture is an event not to be missed." - Rich Bloch

"Why does Chris get standing ovations? It is not the effect that makes the star, rather the star that makes the effect. It's become the combination of great timing, comedy sensibility and great Magic combined. Anyone can fill the stage with feathers and flowers. Chris can fill a stage with a single rose, that's why he and his rings are the best I've seen. That's entertainment." - Rocco

"Chris Capehart is an amazing Master Magician. His lecture is full of practical information. He is a joy to watch." - Losander

"Concerning Chris Capehart – Yes, I have known Chris since a teenager working the streets of Philadelphia. This is where he has sharpened his skills and he does have more know-how and skill than any magician I have known. He has worked my Super Sunday Magic Convention many, many times to standing applause. His lecture will educate everyone young and old. He is a walking encyclopedia in making a living as a magician, and his knowledge covers every part of the magic business. He will be an asset to you as a lecturer, believe me." - Bob Little

"Chris Capehart is one of my absolute favorite magicians! He's funny, fast, and fearless. The moment he steps out onto the stage, he owns it, and he stays in command every moment until he leaves them laughing in his wake. For audiences small and large, young and old, his results are the same and his impact immeasurable." - Jamy Ian Swiss

"I have watched Chris do his Miser's Dream and other coin work for our audiences for the last four years. This routine always gets them going. It is definitely a guaranteed winner." - Michael Chaut, Monday Night Magic, New York Producer

Excellent Interview Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 5th, 2016
Some of the best advice you could give people at the start of their career. Tricks that work well and play brilliantly for laypeople. Advice on street performing and performing in general that is practical and works. A great lecture from a real world magician. My favourite of about ten lectures I've purchased or so so far!

This will make you money.

I watched it, and the day after, I was on the street performing my magic, and getting PAID for it.

If you want to know how to get out there and make money, get some advice from someone who's made their living doing it.

Chris Capehart is that guy.

I love his miser's dream. Since I've watched this lecture, I have performed it countless times. It looks and sounds like real magic.

So why are you still reading this? Buy this lecture and go make some dang money!

Definitely among the top tier Penguin Live lectures Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 20th, 2015
If Chris Capehart never taught a trick and just told stories and went into how to make money performing on the streets, then it would have been enough for me.

This lecture is definitely among my favorite lectures. Through his stories and insights into street audiences and street performing, Chris is always teaching.

Dan Harlan had to keep reminding him to pause and show how he did a trick because he was just so engaged with the audience and is an incredible storyteller.

How he works audiences, how he builds a crowd, how he gets money in play and other advice about the business/money side of magic is well worth the investment.

Miser's Dream has been a favorite of mine since first seeing it performed on television, and I think it was Norm Nielsen. However, I have never been able to perform it at a level that I felt was good enough for my audiences. Chris will make you want to add the Miser's Dream and the Linking Rings into your routine.

There is so much to being a Master Magician, as Chris Capehart is, and I so appreciated learning what happens in and through and around the tricks instead of merely the tricks themselves.

I cannot recommend this lecture highly enough. I am telling you, you will be stealing his lines, performing some of his routines and creating your own effects.

This lecture was entertaining and inspiring.

p.s. This was another lecture I "stumbled" upon almost by accident. I have a theory when buying Penguin Live lectures. If I want one, I will buy the All Access Pass on the day of the lecture I want. If I prepay for just one lecture it is . I am sure I will like one of the other lectures I get. So, if I want one, I get the pass. It is just the best value.

What a brilliantly insightful lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 28th, 2015
Funnyyyyyy!!! Some lectures can be packed with great info yet,be boring as all get out. I assure you, that is NOT the case with Chris Capehart. In fact if you are bored with any part of Chris's lecture, you have to have the worse case of a.d.d. known to human history. Believe me when I tell you there is NEVER a dull moment! As someone alluded to in an earlier review, you CAN'T stop watching him! That's just the icing on this multi layered cake of a lecture. Although Chris cut his magical teeth on the tough streets of New York and Philadelphia, the wealth of knowledge he shares here is not limited to those experiences. You will learn about performing a childrens show,(very few if any, could do it better than he.)You'll learn a bit about parlour/stand-up shows, and you'll get a master crash course in the ways of REAL street magic! There was a period in the lecture where I had the epiphany, that this was almost like a live example of Ken Weber's tome, Maximum Entertainment only better. I didn't even begin to talk about the tricks and explanations he explores. Chris teaches you effects that will make you money. Tricks you can do for a room full of spectators, rather than for 1 or 2 friends. Tricks that will not only make you look like a top flight magician, but will also enable you to seduce and entertain an audience like never before. There's just SOOO much more!!! The breadth of knowledge exhibited in this lecture leads me to believe that this has to be one of the BEST Penguin lectures EVER!!! So, serious students of magic, CLASS IS IN SESSION! And, Chris Capehart is the MASTER! Buy this, considering what you're getting, tuition is next to nothing! Ten Stars!!!!!!

Greatest Street Lecture of all time. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 23rd, 2015
I really enjoyed this lecture he really gave some great advice on how to work the streets. This lecture is for everyone from the seasoned pro to the beginner. His lecture had some sound advice on what you should wear, What to bring as far as what kind of table you should use and the type of tip pocket you should have. He even taught some of his pet tricks from his 3 ring routine with the newest most visual link called the Meltdown!

I have gotten so much from this lecture everything he teaches is definitely a real world worker. I will be using everything in this lecture.

Awesome and Practical Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 23rd, 2015
This is my first review in years since I've been buying from Penguin. I've heard folks say Daryl is a magician's magician. Well, Chris is one of the best entertaining magicians.

What I learned:

1. Pure magic is never as good as entertaining magic. Chris is the master.
2. The magic presented that you can learn is practical. You can use just about everything he presents.
3. His work on the linking rings is second to none.
4. Miser's dream is just that. It's a dream and so practical.

I'm now a big fan of Chris and if I could choose one magic mentor, he would be it.

Don't miss this lecture if you want to do anything more than just show someone a trick. If you want experienced insight honed with years on the street and in front of audiences of any size, this lecture is a must to watch. Chris is naturally funny and offers point after point after point of honest, down-to-earth performance and presentation advice backed up with unequaled experience and trial by fire. If you want to be a performer, this lecture is a must!!!
