"His is the second greatest Miser's Dream routine in the world... next to mine, of course!" - Jeff McBride

"They should get it because success leaves clues!" - Jack Goldfinger said this regarding Robert's "Naughty & Nice" Rope Routine

"'The advertising video doesn't do it justice. The expectations I had for the quality and versatility were far exceeded once I had the item in hand." - Francis Menotti who fooled Penn and Teller on their TV show had this to say about Robert's "MagicPad" trick in one of the last issues of MAGIC Magazine

Who is he?

Robert Baxt is proud of the fact that he has never had a "real" job. After putting himself through college with money he earned from doing kids' birthday party shows, he was presented with the dual opportunities of being accepted to both Ringling Bros. Clown College, and to Law School. Without hesitation, our hero chose the one that would better for his comedy career: Law School! But after graduating with a juris doctorate degree and taking the Bar exam, Robert never practiced law and proceeded on to a full time career in show business.

With his comedy magic act, he won both the 1st Prize in the National I.B.M. Gold Medal Stage Competition (Lance Burton handed him the trophy and Robert claims it still has his DNA on it!), followed the next year by a FISM trophy for Comedy in Madrid, Spain.

He has performed in Las Vegas, on Cruise Ships, and at Magic Conventions around the world. He has a line of Comedy Magic Routines available for other performers at http://robertbaxt.com/shop.html and writes jokes for other performers. Penn and Teller performed his version of the Newspaper Tear on their "Fool Us" TV show and Joseph Gabriel had this to say about him: https://youtu.be/QIupYX39l8A

He makes his home in Los Angeles, California where he spends his time with his wife and young son going out on acting auditions. As an actor, he can be seen in the eighth season of the CBS hit TV show "How I Met Your Mother" playing the lawyer partner to actor Jason Segel (Marshall).

What will he teach?

His lecture is on Comedy Magic. There will be no knuckle busting sleights and NO CARD TRICKS! Just lots of real workers material for stage and parlor that packs small, plays big, and leaves an audience laughing and happy and wanting more.

The lecture will include some of his most famous and well known bits like his mouth coil routine which got the "Worker of the Week" and a 98% score from the Wizard Product Review in England.

And his work on the Torn and Restored Newspaper as recently performed by Penn and Teller on their hit TV show "Fool Us", plus his closing effect in almost every show he does, his Bottle & Bag Baffler: The "NO EGG" Egg Bag!

Where can you see the greatest creators and performers share their magic in front of a live audience and then teach you to do it? Only Penguin LIVE!

I had the pleasure to be a part of the studio audience for Robert Baxt's Lecture, and what a great Lecture it was! Robert is a true worker, he teaches many awesome and hilarious routines that are just so practical. One of the things that makes Robert stand out from other Lecturers is that I truly enjoyed the entire lecture! He was not only entertaining and funny during the presentation, but also through the explanations!
Some of my favorites from this lecture are the Misers dream, Mouth coils, ash on hand, and his egg bag. But, honestly, there is just so much great stuff that it's hard to narrow it down!
He also talks about how to maximize the number of people leaving good reviews.(which I guess it works, because here I am writing one!) but I have already made money use if this technique!

Please do yourself a favor and get this!

Simplicity that kills! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 8th, 2017
Robert Baxt gives us something special here; his brilliantly simple and effective secrets! As a working pro, he does not want to get bogged down with hours and hours of prep, so he has spent his career creating magic that preps easy, packs small and plays huge. And it does. Robert truly thrives on giving old classics something new and exciting. Secretly, one of my favorite ideas he shares is a new take on Billy McComb's McCombical, where he eliminates playing cards completely and uses something new and fresh: cereal boxes. It's relatable to children and is just a fun twist on the classic. There are so many wonderful ideas in this lecture that if you don't find something you will add to your act, you are probably dead. Most generously, he explains his wonderful work on the Newspaper Tear (Better Newspaper Tear) and this alone is worth the cost of the lecture but you will find sooooo much more that is magical and fun to do. You won't be taking a "chance" when you buy it. You will be getting something truly remarkable.

I own most of Robert's products, so the lecture was a no brainer. I value his work for its simplicity and fool proof nature as well as the added comedy.

Just Great! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 5th, 2017
I bought this just for the advice on getting reviews - and it was a pleasure to watch it all.

Robert Baxt is a working pro, and something that most working pros do is keep it simple, and that he does.

His "shtick" is what is fantastic. He is very funny, sometimes corny, relatable and reminds me of a barker at an old-timey circus/fair.

This is easy, nearly fail-proof, proven magic that packs small and plays big. if you are looking for the "cool" magician type of presentation, this is not it. He is down-to-earth funny.

Outstanding Lecture! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 4th, 2017
Robert Baxt is an extremely talented guy. His performances are full of energy, plenty of magic and a laugh a minute – No! That is not accurate. Robert Baxt’s performances are several laughs per minute!

In this lecture, Robert shares many of the awesome effects he is known for. They are full of mystery and comedy potential. They certainly fit the “pack small, play big” category that many of us are looking for. I am working on several of the gems from this lecture and am excited about adding them to my performances.

Robert is a great teacher and generously shares his thoughts on how to get maximum entertainment from your magic. He has a unique and very refreshing approach to many of the classics of magic. I consider this lecture to be a great investment in my magic journey! I highly recommend it.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 15th, 2017
Robert Baxt shares volumes of practical knowledge and experience in this lecture. From his work with complicated methods and excessive set-up times to more user-friendly theories with instant reset and no-fuss, no-muss techniques that are practical for working professionals and diligent weekend warriors, this lecture covers all of the thinking you need to make great decisions about what you want to do! This conversation and advice alone is worth the price of the lecture.

Then, there are the tricks. Robert graciously shares pieces from his own professional repertoire that pack small and light, play huge. He also gives insights into how he adapts classic effects and methods to fit his personal style as a top-notch entertainer. He will certainly inspire you to do the same with your magic! Plus, you will probably find routines here that you will genuinely want to do. These are real-world workers for genuinely mystifying and entertaining audiences of all ages that are accessible mere mortals.

Robert is so generous in what he shares that you will certainly find many ideas that will improve your magic and your audiences' experiences of it!

Wonderful! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 18th, 2017
If you are looking for ideas on how to make your magic mean something to your audience and how to keep things REALLY simple yet play REALLY big, this is the lecture for you! Robert shares many great routines and ideas that at the very least will make you stop and rethink some of your current routines. The simplicity of many of his methods are like a smack in the face saying, "It doesn't have to be complicated if it is entertaining!" I loved this, and am already planning on working some of these ideas into my show!

Great Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 18th, 2017
I have been a fan of Robert Baxt for a long time and have purchased several of his products/routines. They play well for kids or adult audiences. This lecture was fantastic and I could not believe all the material included. Robert provides a great performance and then goes over the explanation in great detail. I picked up performance pointers that will improve my version of his routines even though I have been doing the effects for awhile. Definitely worth the price and the time to view. This will be one that I watch over and over. Thank you Penguin for making this possible.
