"Elbaum has a non-stop mind for powerful magic. He puts his ideas through the ringer, trimming the fat, squeezing every ounce of impact possible, leaving nothing but a lean, clean, strong effect sure to leave your audience dumbfounded ... and AWE struck!" - Derek Hughes

"Adam is smart, devious, and detail oriented." - Asi Wind

"Adam's Magic is practical, powerful and straight forward." - Kostya

"Elbaum is diabolical and laser focused on maximizing impact while streamlining technique." - Adam Rubin

What will he teach?

The Visible Deck My versions of the Ultra Mental deck that make it much more impossible, more commercial, more versatile, and more impressive. The Visible Deck is more of a concept that you can customize to your liking, but I will offer several presentation suggestions.


Ambitious Routine/Reverse Cull My take on the Ambitious Card. Also taught is my version of the cull that is both easier than the Hoffsinzer cull and also truly invisible. Dan Harlan said it was worth the price of the lecture alone.


Moving Safely An ultra visual card effect inspired by Bannon's "Tattoo You" where a drawing moves to the selected card. Very commercial!


AWE Struck Some new ideas on my trick AWE Struck. This is a dealer item.

The First Trick I Created A signed card with a torn corner travels to an impossible location. I will also teach my corner switch that has gotten great feedback and have been told "is worth the price of the lecture alone."


Divide and Conquer The spectator finds their own selected card through a series of very fair choices narrowing the deck down to just 1 card.


WTF Card to Pocket A thought of card vanishes from under a spectators hand and appears in the magicians pocket in the most magical way. This looks like TV style magic live, but without camera tricks.


IPhone Without My Phone A perfect impromptu trick for kids, where you visually pull a coin out of the photograph on a borrowed phone.


Levitation I will teach some ground breaking ideas for stripping out thread, storing it, disproving the use of strings, and ways to make the levitation look more magical.


Who is he?


Adam has been studying Close Up Magic for nearly 30 years. While magic isn't really his profession, it's definitely his obsession.

The magic he creates and performs tends to focus on very straightforward, powerful effects. He is well known for his innovative work with invisible thread and has taught full workshops in the past with that singular focus. His breakout effect released to the magic community a couple years ago, "AWEstruck", garnered much attention by top pros and was very well reviewed in the magic community. Adam will discuss/teach the effect during the lecture along with some new ideas that have never before been released.

An entrepreneur by trade, he is one of the cofounders of MutantPowers.net, an online magic shop which caters to the comic book community marketing magic tricks as "superhero powers." He is also the instructor for the Advanced Close Up Class at Tannens Magic Camp.

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!

Magicians flock to see workers give talks. Why? Because these guys see and learn things that you won't find in any book or video. Yes, you'll be learning some incredibly powerful A-material, but the INVALUABLE stuff will be the insight you learn along the way.

Practical stuff & and great ideas to get you thinking Report this review

In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve known Adam since we were kids. However, I’ve never seen him give a full lecture and was pleasantly surprised to see him doing something for Penguin. The only thing I knew was that every time I’ve mentioned a trick or idea to Adam, he’s had either had a tip, a subtlety, or an approach that is not only novel, but also useable and effective. So I knew this was going to be good, and it definitely was.

This lecture is full of material that is both powerful and practical. There’s one tip he gave me a few years ago that I use all the time, and the section on IT is worth the whole price of admission. Even if you don’t do IT work, or use every card routine, etc. there’s some great ideas that are worth knowing to apply to other work. Without giving too much away, there’s a secret weapon he mentions for customizing a trick in a crazy good way :) The methods he explains are all well thought out, but what I got even more out of were the helpful hints he dropped along the way (including one seemingly small thought about a Sharpie that really smacked me in the face!)

Well worth it!

Terrific Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 16th, 2017
Hey guys,
Before reviewing this product I want to make it clear that Adam is a friend of mine. However, with that being said, this lecture is absolutely phenomenal. The material ranges in difficulty with some sleight of hand heavy routines as well as some easier self working ones as well. As for the effects themselves, they are all direct and clear hard hitting magic.

Standouts for me include:
The Visible Deck: Who thought the invisible deck couldn't get any better? Well so did I until I saw Adam's version of this classic effect.

Divide and Conquer: A spectator (fairly) narrows down to their own selection.

Reverse Cull: Hands down THE BEST single card cull I have ever seen. A completely invisible move that will fool the boys.

Awestruck: Nice to see him perform and explain additional ideas with his previously marketed effect.

Levitation: While I don't personally perform levitations, this looks like pure magic. I am grateful to have been able to have seen this effect performed live several times in my life and it never ceases to amaze me. Particularly when the bill is floating within the sealed jar. For those of you who are a fan of levitations, than this lecture is a no brainer!

Overall, I think there is a little bit here for everyone. Some gaffed routines and some sleight of hand ones. The effects themselves are powerful but the concepts behind them are also adaptable to other routines and presentations. Couldn't be more pleased with my purchase!

Thanks,
Tatanka Tan

Great Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 14th, 2017
To be honest, I'd not heard of Adam before, but I'm so glad I have this lecture.

His creativity is inspiring and the work on levitations is definitely worth an order!

One of the best Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 13th, 2017
Card magic is not my favorite but I will definitely add some of this to my routine. His method of controlling a card to the top of the deck is the best I've seen so far. His invisible thread work is off the charts, nothing else compares.
