"I would recommend TC Tahoe to anyone! Such a naturally funny man!" - Paul Daniels

"Practical, commercial routines from a successful working pro." - John Carney

The New Standard for Lectures Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 3rd, 2016
I'll let other reviewers talk about the effects, which are direct and pure. I'm in love with the lecture itself. TC had a packet of notes - this guy was prepared. But he also went off of them on occasion, because even in a lecture he knows to follow the lead of the audience.

Best of all, an expanded version of those notes is available as a PDF, which totals 47 pages (some are partial blanks because they are ends of chapters, and there's the table of contents, etc, but we're talking a good 40 pages of content). Essentially, the lecture also comes with a book. Not a large book, but a wildly useful one. I hope to see more of this practice in future Penguin Live lectures.

THIS Is What A Lecture Should Be! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 13th, 2016
TC Tahoe isn't just side-splittingly funny...he's a real world worker who can deliver an experience with great impact to an audience...seemingly with great ease. In this lecture, TC balances teaching tricks, (that can easily be learned and inserted into any number of acts), with sharing invaluable information that can help the viewer expand their value to potential clients. He shares insights into the dos and don'ts of Emceeing. He discusses the process of writing comedy and provides examples about making an emotional connection with your audience.

There are tricks on this lecture that play well in multiple scenarios, from close-up to stage to just being asked to do something at a party. In any situation, you'll be armed with awesomeness that will blow your spectators away and boost, if not secure your reputation as a master of your art!

The advice and insight is worth the price alone; but if you want to talk tricks, then I can tell you that there are several in this lecture that are easy to learn/perform and will make a huge impact. Several of them are worth the price of the lecture alone, let alone as a group!
With "The Pad", you've got an impromptu prediction effect that you can do at a moment's notice with borrowed objects. At a party...at an office...you're equipped to make an impression!
The Beer Vase is an impressive handling of a classic effect.
The TC Tahoe Lotto is one of my favorites and I love, love, LOVE performing that effect! You will, too!
His Cards Across and Coins Across (to condiment cup) are fantastic and play well close-up, or even on stage.
His 3 Fly is great and his unique handling of the Spellbound move is another gem almost worthy of the price all on its own!
I never considered magic with Tarot cards before, but bought my first Tarot deck after seeing this lecture! TC teaches a couple of quick, easy and impressive tricks utilizing a Tarot deck. Can you use a regular deck of cards? Yep. But the mystique of the Tarot deck adds a little extra emotional spin to the prestige of the effect!

Overall, this lecture can't be beat. The content is fantastic. It's real-world experience and guidance for serious professionals; and it's easier-than-you-think effects that are fun to perform and deliver a great and memorable experience for your audience!
Highly recommended!!!

TC Rocks! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 6th, 2016
If you're just looking for tricks... this lecture probably isn't for you. TC provides some great tricks -- real workers from his act over 25+ years, but more importantly, TC shares how to really connect with your audience!

This man is funny, and shares some great tips on how you can create your own comedy. He shared some great stories and practical advice on MC'ing skills also. Especially noteworthy were his take on Cards Across (going to start using this right away), Speed Bump (comedic cards to pants), TC's Lotto (a unique take on the 'Phil' deck of cards), Coins Across (super clean & memorable for the audience), and some great effects using tarot cards and a pendulum.

3.5 hours of memorable and very workable magic. Highly recommend this lecture and anything put out by TC. Also, his book 'Lunch is Served' (a real assortment of workers using the out to lunch principle) is something you'll use!

Wonderful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 13th, 2019
I really enjoyed this lecture. I have had the privilege of seeing T C perform twice now and he has really solid material that works. For me though, it is his bizarre and storytelling magic that really stands out and what makes him shine. His work with the tarot cards and pendulums is really interesting. He is one of the worlds natural born storytellers.

I am so fond of this lecture that I would give it 7 stars. TC Tahoe is such a multitalented artist that you will learn real magic for the real world- much more than tricks.I love the variety of his effects, his personality and ,especially his sound thinking about being present.

Mr. Tahoe is Too Cool Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 22nd, 2017
What a fantastic lecture. Lots of usable material with very direct methods to allow your presentations to shine. His work on the click pass is awesome (Dan was even impressed and had to give it a try) and has me finally interested in learning some coin tricks. The accompanying PDF is thorough and a very nice compliment to the lecture.

The "TC" Stands for "Top Conjuror" Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 21st, 2016
I pay little attention to magic "theory" preferring instead to listen and learn from those who work in the real world. TC Tahoe is one of those workers who gets my full attention. He has forgotten more magic than most will ever know. This download is full of great material and ideas. It's one that you will go back and watch again and again.

Some great pack small play big magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 31st, 2016
One of my favorite lectures so far. I do not like to carry big props so i found several effects that play to a large crowd and most of all very entertaining. The money effect with the TP will be going in my next show. It would be easy to carry a 45 min. show in a small briefcase and have the crowd laughing and wondering how you did it. Buy now you will not be sorry because of all the great effects in this lecture. They are not just tricks but full blown routines.

Fantastic Job! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 19th, 2016
In this lecture TC demonstrates his uncanny ability to simplify classic routines and maximize their impact on a lay audience. He also provides game-changing advice on emceeing a show, and real world tips on adding comedy to routines you already perform.

TC is also a top-notch storyteller. One of very few professional magicians who’s just as compelling without a prop in his hands.

I love this guy and I loved his lecture. Highly recommended!
