"When you look at Anthony Blake, you see an image of the real mentalist. He has charisma. He has a presence. He has a personality. Anthony is a friend of mine for 20 years and I really admire him for his genius. He has a vast knowledge. Anthony has invented dozens of special routines and strong. His technique is always perfect. His nail writing skills are amazing Anthony is the perfect combination of everything you need as a mentalist. It is an honor to listen and learn from one of the true artists of our time." - Lior Manor

"Anthony Blake cannot walk the streets of Spain without crowds calling out "BLAKE....BLAKE!" He is not only a brilliant creator and artist, but understand what we can call the science of Mentalism.

show business." - Ken Weber, Former president of the P.E.A., Author “Maximum Entertainment"

Who is he?

Anthony Blake, a native of Oviedo, has studied for many years techniques and disciplines that have allowed him to face different challenges throughout his professional career.

He left his medical studies and was inclined to delve into the power of the mind. His greatest professional recognition came when he received the Dunninger award in 2003-2004 for excellence and professionalism in the development of his career as a Wizard of the Mind.

Anthony Blake has developed his career in two main sectors: theater and the media.

The live shows, before the public, are a continuous challenge. From 1983 until today, he has created various shows in different formats, which have been presented by all the theaters of Spain and beyond our borders. With great success with the public and with the critics.

His collaboration on television programs has allowed him to popularize his Magic. He highlights his participation as a regular collaborator in "Un, Dos, Tres", in its beginnings; and later in the program of "Carlos Herrera", "Martian Chronicles", "Sunday to Sunday", "Another Dimension" as well as programs presented by Blake himself: "In No Man's Land", "Blake the Challenge", and "Blake" among others.

He has participated in numerous radio programs as well as in film.

Anthony Blake loves to share some of his knowledge in order that the mind stops being a great unknown. With this pretense, he has published three books, "Tu poder mental", "Tu poder intuitivo" and "Lo que se del más allá", in which he proposes techniques and exercises to develop the power of the mind. Exercises on how to improve memory, develop your intuition, master the subconscious or control and interpret dreams among others.

He has also given conferences and courses on non-verbal communication, Neurolinguistic programming, and coaching.

I had high hopes for this lecture, but it was a little disappointing. Some okay ideas but not worth the lecture price. I felt like his performance was weak, this was evidence by the audiences reactions. No real new ideas, and even the classics are mediocre at best. Two stars.

for one who is disinterested in mentalism, I nevertheless found some of Mr Blake's effects fascinating. He gave a nice overview of pocket writing. If one is not interested in mentalism, overall a bit tedious.

Absolute top notch Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 8th, 2017
This is a world class material. Maybe Mr.Blake's narrative is not always smooth - in part, due to mild language limitations - but those willing to bypass that will find pure gold. First of all, I find his presentations are just classy, elegant - not an imitation of classy and elegant, but for real. Secondly, the material he shares is very practical - it is obviously thought-out on a deeper level than average, and sure enough proven and polished in public performances. I find there is really a remarkable economy of resources - only the necessary is left to create the effect, the rest has to be you (performer). His center tear method must be the best I've come across so far, and the script he uses for it is brilliant. This is the first proposition of a center tear motivation that make sense to me - usually polite audience feel something cheeky is going on there - but this presentation really brings a center tear to another level. Truly classy, graceful.

Mr.Blake recalls an episode of his life in which he faced a probable misjudging in a competition, and it comes across like the episode had an impact on him. I join those who share this opinion: Mr Blake, it really truly doesn't matter - this is a total smoke, and at the end of the day what is special and worth finds its way into the space it deserves. With your recent DVD release (which I pre-ordered from the original source, but unfortunately - and alarmingly - never received!), with this PenguinLive lecture, and hopefully with your upcoming releases, you will undoubtedly influence a generation of non-Spanish-speaking magicians, and it just cannot be otherwise when there is THIS kind of quality at work. Meanwhile, I look forward to your release of the nailwriter!

For those reading this review - do yourself a big favor, and listen to what this man has to say. He KNOWS.

Contains an absolute gem Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 29th, 2018
Anthony Blake has perfected the swami gimmick and its technique as much as anyone. In particular there is an absolute gem of advice that 'rings' true when it comes to how to write steady. If that were the only tip that this video contained it would be worth the money and worthy of 5 stars. That tip, however, is only a small part of some really good material.

The first item he teaches is a book test. I am no expert on book tests, but I found this to be simple and direct and IMO the audience would say "how did he do that!"

There is material and ideas in this lecture that I would deem top good for a penguin live. However, in reading the responses it seems many won’t get it anyhow. Just the notes on nw technique and his developments with it would be worth the price for me. Let alone that he clearly explains a fantastic live read ct, and gives the motivation and blocking and everything. This is a very clear lecture from a master performer of Mentalism. Reading the comments I think many are faulting him for being foreign, and not a native English speaker which is the most unfair assessment of a lecture. For me a good lecture has material that is useful and insight that will help me develop my work further. This has that in spades.

Wonderful, charming performer Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 4th, 2017
I like Anthony Blake since I watched his DVD-Set (produced by Dani DaOrtiz). From the first minute on I was faszinated by demonstrations of the effects, because he involves very interesting bits in the process (for example sketching associations with a person or a place) with a real psychic appeal. I got the feeling of seeing a classic performer. His methods were obviously time tested, sometimes developed in a personal manner, what makes it difficult to use them straight away. But there was no effect that wasn't interesting to study.
This Penguin lecture is not quite so personal as the DVD-set but he goes through interesting routines, some weren't on the set. The explanations (and the show) are not perfectly clear, mostly because English isn't Mr. Blakes first language.
I really liked this, he is a unique performer.

Mentalism with Finesse and Polish Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 4th, 2017
I've been counting down the days until this lecture was released. Anthony Blake explains routines that he has performed live and on TV. On the surface, a lot of them are basic staples in the realm of Mentalism.

But the subtleties and the real thought that has gone into each routine is where Anthony has cut the diamond to its full brilliance.

I enjoyed the format of going back and forth watching the performance for real people (and oooh....were they "real") and cutting to the explanations. It was sad only 5 were in attendance plus the full crew, because I would have loved to be there. Perhaps Penguin will consider releasing the commentary heard while they watched the performances?

NO CARD EFFECTS! All of the effects involve people's picks of locations, emotions, numbers, other people, etc. revealed in numerous ways.

But I believe the true lessons taught are not even spoken of. It's watching Blake onstage, the interactions with his participants, and his preparedness in making those participants comfortable on stage. These things are only learned through the many years of his experience performing in the real world. That's where the real gold for me was.

I don't how much material from this lecture is already on his 4 DVD set through GrupoKaps, but I know there is much more there and I will (finally) be purchasing that soon.

In closing; basic staples in mentalism polished by touches and years of experience that one will utilize immediately. If you want "new tricks", there's a guy with a Rubik's Cube next week.

Wow really bad lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 7th, 2017
Super slow talker. Boring material no build. And even for the fake penguin crowd, they didn't react. I'm convinced the people are boring in Spain. I've worked Spain 3 times but that was 10 yrs. ago. Maybe they have an amazing attention span for boring drawn out material.
