“Chicago’s Best Magician.” — Chicago Magazine

“Eugene is not just one of my favorite magicians in the world to watch, he's also one of the greatest teachers of magic alive. I'm sure he'll perform and explain fantastic tricks that'll fool you and your audiences, but I'm certain he'll also impart important and valuable insights into audience management. Plus, he'll be funny and charming. Do everyone in the world a giant favor and watch Eugene Burger's Penguin LIVE Lecture.” — Mac King

"Dear magicians: Eugene Burger gets it. He knows how to explain it. And he's willing to share." — Max Maven

"Eugene is the Dean of the Magic & Mystery School, and has mentored many of the most successful artists of our time. Now you can learn why he has earned the title of "THE MASTER”!" — Jeff McBride

"For decades Eugene Burger has been recognized by magicians and the public as one of the finest and most engaging magicians alive.” — Stephen Minch, Genii Magazine

What will he teach?



FADING COIN The best coin trick that Eugene has learned in the past 15 years! Completely impromptu and it can be done anywhere in the world with any coins.

LIMITED EDITION Eugene’s presentation and handling for this modern classic where you break the rules and tell your audience exactly what you are going to do and then you do it.

GEMINI MONEY One of Eugene’s favorite pieces of magic for the times he worked behind a bar. Tensions rise leading to a happy conclusion for all.

OUT OF THIS WORLD Eugene’s direct handling and presentation for this classic effect where an audience member separates the red and black cards. Eugene begins with a borrowed and shuffled deck and uses clever strategies to create a mind boggling effect.

THE PACK THAT CUTS ITSELF Eugene uses this as his opening effect for corporate cocktail party work. You will learn the inner secrets of this amazing piece of card magic where the cards move by themselves and are immediately taken for examination by the audience member.

THE TURNING CARDS Under cover of a scarf, selected cards come out of the deck, turn over and reinsert themselves into the pack. Sometimes Eugene presents this as a piece of spirit magic.

SPIRIT MESSAGES Eugene presents three different close-up presentations and methods for the effect of spirit writing. All are regularly performed by Eugene and you will learn all the subtle touches to make this into a featured and talked about effect.

Who is he?



He's amazed and delighted audiences from Las Vegas to Tokyo. As Stage bill magazine proclaimed, Eugene Burger is "universally recognized as perhaps the finest close-up magician in the world."

"Close-up magic" is just that: magic performed right under your nose, where everyone becomes part of the show. And with Eugene Burger it is an unforgettable experience, for as the Chicago Reader noted in an unprecedented eleven-page cover story about him, "Burger adds something extra." His warmth and humor are captivating and his magic is simply amazing.

By definition, magicians are pretty special people, but Eugene Burger is considered exceptional even by other magicians. He has written fifteen best-selling books for the trade, starred in eight instructional videos, lectured extensively to magicians' groups in over a dozen countries, and his writings have been translated into several languages.

His deep understanding of the psychology and philosophy behind the magic have won him international accolades, cover stories in conjuring magazines, and four awards from the famed Magic Castle in Hollywood.

But as much as he loves discussing magic with fellow performers, Eugene's true passion is bringing mystery and enchantment to the public, and at this he is unparalleled. His special presence has led to numerous television appearances in Great Britain, Canada, Belgium, Finland and Japan, and on such highly acclaimed shows as The Art of Magic on PBS and Mysteries of Magic on The Learning Channel. He's been profiled twice on CNN.

During the past several years, Eugene has been a featured speaker for top executives of such major companies as Coca-Cola, Williams-Sonoma, Unisys and Pottery Barn, as well as top business schools including Wharton, and the graduate schools of business at the Universities of Chicago and Maryland. His talk, "How Magicians Think," applies his special understanding of deception and perception to the corporate world.

When the leading international trade journal Magic magazine compiled its list of the one hundred most influential magicians of the twentieth century, Eugene Burger was included for his ability to "arouse feelings of astonishment, as well as a host of other indescribable sensations."

Find out why this engaging entertainer is in constant demand for private parties, corporate functions and special events. Discover for yourself what the Chicago Tribune hailed as the "delightful excitement" that is uniquely Eugene Burger.

What a teacher. What a voice. What a magician. What a presence. What a fine story teller.

I really enjoyed this lecture. He is real and vulnerable and generous.

He spoke about:
-scripting
-using emotional changes within a show
- how to pose questions at the beginning of a trick to give what you are about to do value.
-Character
-difficult is not always better
..........and much, much more

And of course he teaches amazing tricks!!!

Should you get this lecture?

YES! YES! YES!

HE WANTS to make you a better magician. HE WANTS you to be a better magician.

He said, "It is your job to make the magic memorable."

Please watch this lecture.

There is so much to learn from him.

Eugene Burger is a phenomenal magician. Not only are his tricks just fabulous, but he also explains and shares them with a never-seen clarity and generosity. In between the tricks, Eugene Burger also delivers tons of great advice and thoughts about magic. I could not keep the pace taking notes and will certainly have to view and pause the video again and again, in order not to miss a single piece of all advice delivered between the tricks.

Most of the material shown during this lecture is already available in Eugene's books or DVDs (if you are a fan and collect them as I do), but this is not an issue at all, since Eugene gives here alternative presentation and provides additional advice. So this can be seen as a very useful addition to the existing sources.

This lecture really deservers 6 stars.

Long live Eugene Burger : definitely one of the very best and most generous magician - philosopher of these days !

Best lecture I've purchased Report this review

There's only 2 or 3 out of the 5 effects on this I would perform. However, like I said this is one of the best I've ever purchased. Eugene's performance, tips, and thoughts on magic are incredible. You will learn so much from this, it is definitely worth the price even if you don't perform any of the effects he teaches. The methods to the tricks are very clever, well thought out, and taught well. Gemini Money and his handling on Out of This World went straight into my repertoire as soon as I learned them. The Pack That Cuts Itself is knacky, but can be mastered and will blown away a spectator. Fading Coin and Limited Edition are great tricks as well and are easily learned. I highly recommend this to any magician.

I love hearing Eugene Burger, and not just for the straightforward methods in his routines, but for the philosophy involved. Eugene's routines have context and reasons for why things are happening.

Magicians tend to over complicate routines by adding unnecessary steps to avoid detection when it's not needed. Burger teaches you to think from the layman perspective and not get caught up on doing the hardest sleight when the simplest accomplishes the same objective.

I'd love to see more Eugene Burger from penguin in the future! Maybe a bizarre oriented lecture.

Whether Eugene Burger appeals to you personally or not, whether his style of tricks fits your style or not, this lecture is invaluable to anyone serious about performing powerful magic. The tricks he demonstrates are simple and direct, and each one is a stepping-off point for a lesson about performing more powerful magic. The price of the video is ridiculously cheap for the value of Burger's lessons.

A masterful demonstration of magical presentation combined with hard hitting effects, with many of the tricks presented using methods within the reach of newer/novice magicians. This was my first experience with the work of Eugene Burger,...and I now understand why he is considered a living legend by many in the magic community. Thanks for a truly INSPIRING lecture Eugene!

Eugene is such a magical genius! His perspective on how to present yourself before and during a trick forever changed how I approach magic. I hope some day i'm as relaxed and cool as he is when I perform. This is well worth purchasing and includes some awesome tricks and illusions. Thanks Penguin and thanks Eugene for making me a better magician....now that's reality.(wink-wink)

This lecture is one of the best, if not the best Penguin live lecture I have seen. Of course, if you are looking for fancy totaly new magic tricks, you're not at the right Lecture. I always enjoyed Eugene Burger approach to magic because he focuses on presentation and on this magic 'ingredient' that is so precious when we do magic 'tricks'. This lecture is a pleasure to see and to listen. Thanks Mr. Eugene. Can I give 10 stars !!
