HURRICANE RELIEF DEAL: UNTIL MID-NIGHT, CYRIL LIVE IS ONLY $20, and 100% of the money (all $20) is going directly to hurricane relief funds for victims of Harvey and Irma.

Donation details: Penguin Magic is working with Hand In Hand (Comic Relief) to distribute 100% the funds to charities who have committed, in writing, to use the funds exclusively for hurricane relief. No administrative fees will be taken by Penguin Magic or by Hand in Hand.



As you may know, Cyril has appeared in over 16 prime-time television specials in Japan and two television series reaching audiences in over 26 countries. Considered one of the pioneers of street magic and known for his ability to be an effective storyteller, Cyril continues to create exciting new magic and discover new ways of surprising his fans while pushing the boundaries of magic on television and on the live stage.
 
In this Penguin Live lecture, Dan Harlan talks with Cyril about how it all began for him and what it takes to be successful in the challenging world of televised magic.
 
He also shows you many of the skills he learned early on in his career, walking you through a beautiful cigarette manipulation routine (including a few fancy juggling moves with a lit cigarette) and he reveals to you how it all looks from the other side.
 
As a special treat, we enjoy a very early video of Cyril performing his award-winning FISM act featuring a large set, costuming, music, story and more. He tells you how he put this act together and the challenges of staging such an elaborate piece. Plus, they talk about his first major show in which Dan Harlan had a small role.
 
Cyril teaches some incredible card manipulation, including a crazy version of the interlock production, and a smart tip to disguise back palmed cards.
 
He also shares many behind-the-scenes stories of working on TV, his favorite pieces, and translating them to live stage. And, he finishes off by floating a borrowed bill and showing you his way of returning it to the table that's virtually guaranteed to get you the tip.
 
You'll definitely enjoy this chance to get to know one of the most successful, talented and humble entertainers in the world of magic!

Cyril LIVE Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 3rd, 2016
I absolutely love Penguin. I think Dan Harlan is the best. Cyril is an outstanding magician and his magic is second to none. Paradoxically though, the aforesaid has nothing to do with the Cyril LIVE presentation. Others have said it already: If one wants the Cyril LIVE "lecture" in order to learn more about Cyril's effects then one will be SORELY disappointed. There was a good chemistry between Dan and Cyril. Cyril also bonded with the audience. That's all fine and dandy, but I would not have paid that amount of money to see two guys sit in front of their peers and reminisce about the good old days. Let's face it. Most purchasers of lectures buy them because they want to learn something. How many times will somebody watch two guys sit and mostly talk? Sure, Cyril demonstrated 3 effects and showed how he did them, but the teaching was inadequate. This review pained me to tell it like it is since I am a great fan of all the parties involved. I think though that reviews are supposed to be real. Nothing personal.

An interview with a great magician Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 28th, 2015
Dan Harlan did another great job directing the conversation with an extremely interesting person and a favorite magician, Cyril.
He told his life's story in sincere and modest way and it was fascinating to listen to. An inspirational video for any aspiring magician who has a burning desire to hit it big.
Be advised that you won't be taught any magic, just a few tip off's to handlings.
I love Penguin but I respectively request that they cease calling an interview a "lecture" that "teaches us some fantastic effects!". That differentiation would clarify our expectations.

I wish it was a little longer. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 19th, 2016
Cyril Takayama is such a nice guy, and he is a pretty good teacher too. I enjoyed learning cigarette manipulations and card productions from a master. I also enjoyed learning about his TV show and how he got to where he is. I like that Cyril seemed so honest and he responded to the questions from Dan Harlan so professionally.

I wish that Cyril would relax and teach a regular lecture, it seemed like the formal format of the "interview" really harmed his ability when he was trying to teach. I'd love to see Cyril come back and teach us in a less formal environment, perhaps.

Other than that, I really liked listening to Cyril's thoughts, and listening to Dan Harlan trying to pick his brain. It was fun, and I learned a lot about trying to become a TV magician. Turns out, its a lot of hard work!

Good Interview but lacking effects Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 12th, 2016
This is a good interview that gives you insight into who Cyril is and how he started out and what his road to success has been. It was very interesting. But there really isn't any teaching in this interview so if you are looking for this to teach you new effects you will be disappointed.

"I don't usually do this kind of lecture" Cyril Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 10th, 2016
After having host so many lectures, you might think that Dan Harlan could have try to help Cyril and try to tell him what we were expecting, but it seems Dan Harlan was most focused on seeing stuff he used to see a long time ago than trying to have an actual lecture.

I mean, not only Cyril just arrived without any idea what he was going to do "I don't know. Tell me what you want to see", but he was asked to perform effect he did not perform in a long time.

I have never heard of Cyril before and it seems like a nice guy. But, I have not learned a single thing I can use in this lecture.

Fortunately, I got this with the suscription so I did not pay 30 dollars for "this".

Disappointed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 9th, 2016
Obviously, Cyril is one of the great magicians. I was very disappointed with the lecture, though. He came across as arrogant and unprepared. I felt like we were keeping him from something he would rather be doing. Poor Dan had to play the part of a dentist pulling teeth just to get demo out of him. When finally did show us something, he wasn't prepared to do it. It seems to me, if you agree to do a live lecture people are paying to see, you be prepared for it.

Cyril is a Great Performer, but this Lecture is more an Interview then a Lectute where you can learn some cool stuff.

Not what I expected Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 7th, 2016
I was counting down the days for this lecture for the simple fact it was Cyril. I was expecting something very different then what I had watched. This is more of an interview then anything else. So if you want to learn tricks then don't get this but if you want to hear about Cyril story from the man himself then go ahead and add to cart. I really hope Cyril does another lecture but will be better prepared. I knew I should have saved my money until the reviews came out. Lesson learned

Wisdom Over Tricks Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 5th, 2016
Cyril's pre-recorded Penguin LIVE interview was great! If you want a finger flicking trick packed lecture you'd need look elsewhere, but if you want to hear about creating magic and dealing with your growth as a magician you would benefit for this interview. Yes, Cyril goes over some of his cigarette manipulation, card productions and floating dollar but that's NOT what his event is about. It's about a legend of the magical world sharing his creative process, advice and history with you so that you can be a better magician. It may not be for you but I truly enjoyed it!
