"The biggest compliment I can give - and it happens to be 100% true - is that David's material is so well thought out and complete, that there were several items I would be thrilled to immediately add to my own personal repertoire." - Daryl

"David's trick 'Getting to know you' is one of the most commercial card routines I have seen in a long time." - Jon Allen

"David Corsaro's effect "Mallrats" is one of the best "interactive" tricks I have seen, which successfully eliminates the problems I have with most interactive effects." - Robin Dawes

"David's material is made for real people in real conditions. Several of the effects will go straight to my repertoire" - Boris Wild

"I enjoyed your material and the thinking behind the effects. Well done." - Larry Becker

"David's material is fantastic and I encourage any magicians looking for some great new commercial material to check it out" - Marc DeSouza

What will he teach?

Getting To Know You - The magician takes out a deck of cards and asks the spectator a series of funny questions about themselves, spelling 1 card for each letter of their answer. Despite the large range of possibilities, the last answer ends on a card with the spectators name on it. This is an excellent trick for establishing a real connection to an audience member.

Wild Birthday - This routine takes a classic of card magic and turns it into a fun routine for anyone having a birthday where you are performing, especially kids. It gets the entire group involved in celebrating the spectator's birthday and leaves them with a nice souvenir to remember you by.

Mallrats - A spectator takes an imaginary journey around a mall directory and the magician is able to correctly predict what store the spectator will stop at. This effect leaves every member of the audience with a unique souvenir that they will save for a long time (which just happens to have all of your contact information on it.)

Mad About You - A very personal effect where you bring the audience inside of your life for a minute and prove that fate decides the path we take. The spectator has a free choice of any card in the deck (for real) yet they choose the only one that matches your prediction.

Baby Gag - This is David's take on the standard "Baby Gag" effect. David turns this quick joke into a miracle….about 50% of the time...and the other 50% of the time, it's still a hilarious gag!

Baci - A simple card trick turns into a magical (and tasty) souvenir for your spectators. This effect is perfect for table hoppers as it gets several people involved, takes up very little pocket space and creates a visual transposition of 2 objects.

Can I Call You Sometime - David's signature effect. A spectator is given a free choice of 25 different ladies' phone numbers. A deck of cards gets shuffled (by the spectator) in a face up/face down condition. The spectator spreads the deck and the only cards face up match the phone number selected. A true hands-off miracle! Asi Wind says "Just the concept of David's trick "Can I call you sometime" is worth the price of his whole lecture"

Marketing for Magicians - After the magic is done, David will take his 18 years of experience working for 2 of the best marketing agencies in the country and walk you through dozens of tips and suggestions for how to improve your marketing as a magician. These are inexpensive tools that will help you to expand your brand and put yourself in a better position to grow your business. Find out why dozens of top magicians like Karl Hein, Mark Calabrese, Jason Alan, Will Fern, Jason Messina and even the SAM and IBM organizations have reached out to David for marketing advice.

Who is he?

David has performed for the past 7 years at New York's famous "Monday Night Magic" as a close-up performer, an emcee and even one of the three featured stage acts. He lectures for magic clubs and conventions all over the world including 2 of the past 3 years at Magi-Fest and at the 2016 SAM National Convention. He was named "MVP" of the Carolina Close-Up Convention (TRICS) in 2012. He has been a regular attendee of the Fechters Finger Flicking Frolic (4F) convention since 2007. In 2008, David combined his knowledge of magic with his 18 years of experience working in two of the top marketing agencies in the country to create "The Business of Being Awesome", a full marketing lecture specifically designed for the working magician. This lecture received a standing ovation at the Detroit Motor City Close-up Convention in 2011.

David has also turned his love of magic into a web show called "Time to be Awesome" where he interviews some of the top magicians in our field and gets them to open up and tip valuable advice for the working pro.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, David understands the power of magic and using it for the advancement of his community and country. He performs many charity and fundraising shows each year for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Lions International and many local animal shelters.

David Corsaro is a BEAST!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 13th, 2016
And nothing less. Like holy crud, his knowledge in marketing is clever, EXTREMELY EASY to use, and will make you smile.

Background: Ill be honest, I came DIRECTLY for the marketing section of the Lecture. And ohhhhh man, it was good. Lot of people say they'd pay double, AND I HONESTLY WOULD! As a working magician (I work corporate gigs and weekly at a restaurant in addition to lots of networking) this stuff is invaluable.

The tricks to me are bountiful bonus, and some have a clever marketing aspect, as is Corsaro's "style". Should also note because I missed the "LIVE" section where I wanted to ask Corsaro some questions, I emailed him, and he's a genuinely nice guy who truly wants to go out of his way to help you, in addition to being a marketing magic genius.

If you're looking for clever ways to market yourself in a casual way, and boost your gigs, I recommend this Penguin Live First over all others.

Stinks I couldn't rate or recommend Corsaro more than a 5/5. Ah well...

THIS Is What a Lecture Should Be Like! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 7th, 2017
I'll be honest, I had never seen David perform or lecture before and from the moment I started watching, I knew I was going to enjoy this one.

David's effects are simple, yet have impact - I will be using the name effect straight away in my set.

I've also learned so much about marketing, how to make more income from performing and a lot of other great tips from a man who seems to know his stuff.

I highly recommend this lecture and I'll be sure to check out more from David Corsaro.

A lecture with Content Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 22nd, 2016
So.. I should have written this review a week ago.. but I couldn’t. I was and am upset that this lecture has been released on penguin… SIMPLY BECAUSE I WANT IT FOR MYSELF! After much reflection, I’ve come to the conclusion that my business will increase if my “competition” learns what I learned. So here we go…

For over 10 years I have worked as a professional magician, the past 3 years my wife joined me making 100% of our salary coming from entertainment. I’ve been roped into dozens of lectures by marketing experts who promise to teach me how to make a million performing. Each time I’ve been left with less in my checking account and questioning where my next show will come from.

A few weeks ago we drove down to Columbus to sit in on David Corsaro’s lecture at the P3 theater. Seeing that this would be the 3rd time we’ve heard David talk on marketing it was a trip to help support a friend from the magic community. It went from supporting a friend to frantically looking for a pen and paper trying to write down every word he said. This was the first time I’ve heard someone qualified to discuss marketing TALK MARKETING! Each point had meaning and purpose without the pipe dreams I’ve heard so often. David’s thoughts on how to hand out a business card is worth the lecture. Since our trip to Columbus, I’ve started using this technique and have established numerous relationships which have blossomed into $$.

This post has officially become 4 paragraphs long and I feel it still doesn’t express what this lecture truly is. Let me bring this to an end by saying Stacy ( my wife) just performed David’s “Getting to Know You” for a CEO of a major company leaving him speechless! They’ve already asked us back next year.

What’s the old saying… a spectator will see one magician in their lifetime? Do yourself a favor and buy this lecture so that one interaction your clients have is professional and memorable.

Superb lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 29th, 2017
Never posted a review before but felt I had to on this. I have many lectures from penguin and other companies so I have a lot to compare against.
David's lecture has a bit of everything. Excellent & useable effects for close up or stage which can be played comically or seriously as well as some really sound advise on marketing.
I contacted David (as he mentions in the lecture) for a couple of PDF's which he kindly sent straight to me.
10/10

Remarkable real-world material Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 11th, 2017
David offers practical material for the real world. His work is inspired by the giants and, in turn, inspires others. David is an excellent teacher, too, because of his years as an international lecturer. In the spirit of full disclosure, David is a close friend, but this friendship has been forged initially through his passion for magic. He does not tolerate poor magic and appreciates entertainment value. In short, you simply cannot go wrong with any of David's magic or marketing material. This is an investment that will pay you dividends immediately.

I recently purchased this lecture along with some lecture notes and it is already starting to pay off. Thanks to his advice and tips, I have a better idea and a clear plan to help boost my business. I started utilizing his techniques with a potential client and able to book a gig that will potentially boost my exposure. I highly recommend watching this lecture. Everything is well explained and not only does he teach some of his tricks, but explains how to adjust it to your personality. It has helped me so much.
