“Mike Pisciotta is the hidden gem of the Magic Castle. Now, less hidden.” - Max Maven

“If pure magic, blooming effortlessly in moments and surprises, without ego, hype or pretense was a lost art, Mike Pisciotta has found it.” - Michael Carbonaro

“I have a very short list of performers I could watch rock a crowd forever. Mike Pisciotta is on my top five list.” - Eric Jones

“Best magician I’ve seen!! Mike Pisciotta, you blew our minds!” - Laura Prepon

“Best magician I’ve ever seen, really great!” - Ozzy Osbourne

“Mike did a trick at my party that made me lose my mind. I want it back!” - Nathan Fillion

“Mike Pisciotta pulled four lemons out of thin air and set the party on fire! Thanks Mike.” - John Mulaney

“Absolutely incredible magician!” - Charlize Theron

What will he teach?

Mike's Opener – Showing off a bit of skill, a one-handed cut finds the wrong card, and a fancier cut has the same result. So, the first card changes to the selection.

The Time Lord – A chosen card time-travels, switching places with the ace of spades, not once, but twice. Only then does Mike reveal he knew all along what the card would be.

Jokers Thru Time – A card appears face-down among four face-up jokers. This card is set aside. Then, a selected card vanishes from among the jokers. And get this... the card set aside earlier... no, it's not the selected card... it's all four jokers! And where they were a moment ago, that is the selected card.

Shaken Not Stirred – A deck, shuffled face-up into face-down, is trapped in a cocktail shaker and a single card is chosen from another deck. When the shaker is shaken, instead of mixing the cards, it straightens them all out... all but the chosen card. The perfect bar trick using Mike's new method.
Boxing Match – An impromptu card thru box using borrowed decks.

Coming Up – A selected card rises out of the middle of the deck with no gimmicks and no threads.
Flying Sandwich – A transposition sandwich routine that fools magicians. Two red aces jump from one half of a deck to the other to find the selected card.

Simple Evanescence – A repeat, no palm card to wallet effect. Super-clean and instantly repeated while the wallet is in full view.

Excellent Close Up Magician Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 20th, 2017
Mike Pisciotta is hands down one of the greatest close up/bar magicians around today. This lecture shows so many different things from techniques, suggestions for warm up and practice with a couple of cool stories in addition. I have purchased a number of lectures from Penguin Live and this one is by far my favorite.

Practical, useful, amazing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 17th, 2017
I watch every penguin live lecture and they're always good. I usually walk away with something I can use in my magic. But this lecture was so much more, I walked away with at least five things I can use and work on right away. I love the mix of sleights, simple gimmicks that are easy to transport and slip in when you need them, all wrapped inside compelling routines that mystify. Five stars, one of my all time favorites.
