“Daryl is truly entertaining, highly skilled, and too smart for his own damn good.” –Phil Goldstein

"Daryl has managed to avoid the holier than thou attitude that seems so prevalent among the “stars” of magic.” –Paul Harris

“Truly beautiful magic.” –John Cornelius

“Daryl was funny, Daryl was serious, Daryl was one of the nicest, most polite and professional lecturers that we have ever had the pleasure of hosting. I highly recommend that anyone who can see Daryl’s lecture, do so.” –The Linking Ring

Who is he?



Daryl… Magician to the leaders, past and present!

World Champion magician, Daryl, is known by his peers around the globe as “The Magician’s Magician” because he represents the best of the best in the highly specialized world of close-up magic. Daryl was voted by readers of MAGIC Magazine as one of the top ten most influential magicians of the twentieth century! Daryl’s sleight of hand technique is flawless, his magic is original and astonishing and his presentations are hilariously entertaining! Daryl has earned just about every major magic award imaginable including a gold medal at the F.I.S.M. World Congress of Magic (which is equivalent to the “Olympics” of magic) and SIX Academy Awards from the world famous Academy of Magical Arts (The Magic Castle) in Hollywood, California!

In 1999 and 2000 Daryl’s New Millennium World Tour saw him performing and teaching his original creations in more than 250 cities, in 25 different countries. But Daryl says “One of the greatest honors of my career was to be selected to perform for the President’s Inaugural Candlelight Dinner in Washington D.C.” Daryl was also a resident headlining act at Caesars Magical Empire at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for seven years, before settling in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California. Daryl now concentrates on performing for select private and corporate functions, producing and marketing his original magical creations and instructional DVDs and providing personalized tuition to magicians and magic enthusiasts around the world.

I mean really... Listen to the advice he gives... the "hot tips" which are great in here. This is a guy who really practices what he preaches and is honest about it.

He talks about milking the effect which is so important. So many people want to rush to the end but there's a road that tales us there that can be fun. If you rush to the end you are missing out and what makes the trick entertaining!

His talk at the end was probably the most valuable part. He mentions the importance of being able to perform 10 tricks well and how amazing it is if you can perform just 1 trick for a whole evening. If you look beyond the tricks and there is a gold mine of great advice and tips.

As for the tricks (which are certainly worth it as well): I learned some nice things to add into my rope routine, how much I've been missing out on the acrobatic knot, a few nice techniques I can add into my ambitious card and a great coin trick transpo.

If you guys enjoyed this Live Lecture and Daryl's style, look into "Papa Rabbit Hits The Big Time" which is a fantastic routine for the sponge bunnies.

Enjoy! And Daryl, You're one of the greats. Thanks for sharing your wisdom with us! :-)

Daryl at his best Report this review

Cards, coins, sponge balls, rope, etc. The type of close magic that audiences throughout the world love and the magic that Daryl has earned a living performing for 50+ years.

Daryl showed why the best magic is always the most simple in plot.

All the material in here to me is workable material for the real world. Daryl ensures that every trick he does even if it requires a gaff ends clean. This to me is the most important part of an effect and even though I might not use every routine on the lecture the thinking behind them was worth the $$$ to me.

Finally I have a routine for my Bounce no Bounce balls that I will actually use!

I met Daryl when I was in my early 20's back in the 70's at the Magic Castle, he was excellent then, he still is. I don't think one should watch these lectures for the new best trick, new gaffs or material, but more for what works, what's entertaining, and the little nuances that help create more than a trick, that's the meat. Try to grasp what makes a pro a pro. Sure go buy your flipper coins etc. but you are doing yourself a disservice by not learning a classic or finger palm and putting it into a simple, non-confusing routine that works. Daryl understands and shows this. Do a double lift like his..., classic palm a coin like him..., then work out some material without all the gaffs, when you have all that, then add them in if need be. Daryl showed more than just tricks and if you miss that then you will miss the lecture. An example would be the sponge balls. Anybody who has done this enough, especially table hoppers will tell you that people once in a while will open their hand early. He taught how to combat that problem or at least know if there will be one. He also said once you have made a ball appear in their hand there is nothing more you can do to make it better. He gets it, and passes it on to us. I wonder how many magicians use this trick as I personally feel it's the best trick on earth (sorry for the personal side note). Professor's Nightmare is another overlooked effect, nevermind the awesome routine he did with it!! It's this insight that needs to be learned and he did a fantastic job explaining it - along with some great routines. Personally I loved the no bounce glass! Thanks Daryl.

If you have seen Daryl's Fooler Dooler DVD's then you can miss this. If you are new to Daryl then it is good.

Well I haven't been the lucky ones to get his Fooler Doolers tapes/dvds but from what I see here it's quality. You get a lot from seeing him perform and his little bits of business. His rope act alone is worth the price of the lecture, it's a 7-10 minute act with just rope, and that's ready to go anywhere.

Was great to watch him lecture... Report this review

...because he's Daryl.
And if I was going to recommend a lecture to a newbie, this would be near the top of the list.

But mostly it was the same things I've already seen him do on his tapes (yeah, tapes... remember those??) and I PERSONALLY can't get into his Elvis/preacher thing, though I can appreciate some people enjoy that.

Anyway, if you're a pro and just want to watch one of the greats do-it-again, you'll enjoy this. If you're new at the art, you should almost definitely watch this. If you are experienced and want to learn new things or hear a lot of important tips and philosophies.... it ain't here.

Truly is The Magician’s Magician Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 18th, 2018
(This review is for Daryl LIVE)
Greatly entertaining performance and well paced and detailed explanation of effects.. Daryl truly was unique in both his humor and his passion for magic. We lost a great one, but this lecture will certainly build on his legacy. Great bonus trick after the lecture. A must buy if you want to gain some insight into Daryl and his special brand of magic.

Great Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 23rd, 2017
(This review is for Daryl LIVE)
First of all I don't understand the negative reviews on this lecture. If you don't know who Daryl is, the trailer gives you an idea of what he is going to teach. So you cannot complain about it after you bought it.

Now for the actual review.
I didn't have any of Daryl's matterial before buying this lecture. I had only seen some of his performances. So it was a delight to see him teach his stuff. He was a great entertainer, a great teacher and looked like a lot of fun to be around so you will definetely learn a thing or two in this lecture.
His tricks require a good comunication with the audience in order to work. So if you like some strong tricks that pack tiny and can play huge with a potencial for great comedy you will find it here.

For me this is a solid five stars lecture because Daryl's style seem to be close to what I am trying to achieve as a performer. But in the end of the day it all comes down to one sentence: These tricks are what YOU make out of them. This is the matterial that mede him famous after all.
