I loved this lecture DVD!!
The walk-around set was a great way to see a true pro in
action. I really enjoy Eric Leclerc's comedy stylings. He starts off with a bang using a gimmick
that is in the arsenal of many mentalists. But he uses it more effectively than most. He moves on to
card routines, adding some "jazz magic," jokes, body loads, etc. What an entertaining walk-around
If you like the Rubik's Cube routines of Steven Brundage then you will enjoy Eric's
Peeled and Restored Rubik's Cube. It's a good addition to other Rubik's Cube routines.
also enjoyed his discussion of the Classic Force and Top Change. But his Brazen Double Lift Get
Ready will definitely be added to my arsenal.
In additional, his pseudo pickpocketing
routine is something I will be adding to my comedy club shows here in NYC.
This was a
fantastic lecture and I want to see more from Eric Leclerc!!
I’m a big fan of Eric, I followed him through his "365 project" and really enjoy watching him. This
lecture was crazy, Crazy, CRAZY!!! Unlike other lectures, Eric gets non-magicians in the studio and
performs for them. The tricks of the set are not important but all the subtle little things Eric
brings to them is the real gold of this lecture. Like his ninja marketing technique is clever and
says so much without saying hire me for other events. Below are just some of the items Eric covers
in the lecture:
The Walk Around Routine:
Eric performs his beautiful walk around set.
With classic card magic, direct mind reading and pickpocketing his set would be enjoyed by any
audience. All performers would gain something by watching this routine. Eric’s audience management
is top notch and a thrill to watch.
Peeled & Restored Rubik’s Cube:
A Sticker is peeled
off a Rubik’s Cube, the sticker is then set on fire and appears back on the cube. Eric says this
trick has little merit as he doesn’t see a real world use for it. He says it’s a trick for magicians
as it has a great method, and yes the method is great. I see this effect as a nice set up to the
Enchanted cube effect. This effect would be great for cubers or magicians doing a Rubik cube effect
Brazen Double Lift Get-Ready:
This is worth the whole lecture hands down!
This is the best get ready for a double lift I have seen or should I say haven’t seen. I truly
didn’t see Eric do this during his performance. This is something that when Eric explains it you may
not believe it but truth him it works.
Classic Force & Top Change:
Using the same
mentally, he approaches the double lift get ready with he talks about the classic force and top
change. This is real world advice from a pro who uses this material in the trenches. Take his advice
and run with it.
Wallet Back Finesse:
This is the perfect out for when a watch steal
goes wrong, it also gives a great kicker to a close up routine or when a volunteer says the line,
“Better watch my wallet.”. This is great and I’ve used it in the real world and it got a good
The “ I Love Unoriginal Spectators” System is amazing! It’s a
prediction system using the lines people say to magicians all the time. Can you make my wife
disappear? Can you make the check disappear? I know that card trick, etc. All of these questions are
now made into predictions. It is great and I’m making one for my wallet.
Water from the
Eric shares this effect he developed for FFFF. It’s a trick for magicians, and its setup
is a bit involved. It is a clean production and looks great but not something you will be adding to
your performance set.
Disappearing Straw/Pen Routine:
This is Eric’s goto routine when
he’s asked to show someone something. If you look at the routine you’ll know how the effect works
but to see Eric perform it is a treat and a nice way to end the lecture.
lecture is well worth it. Eric shares his real world advice he has gained over years of working in
the real world. The only thing I would have loved to see would have been Eric’s work with the swami
writer. This was a phenomenal lecture and if you are a close up performer you need to view this
lecture or if you're a magician wanting to break into the TV market you too would benefit from this
event. Eric’s energy felt in every moment of this lecture and you will enjoy it. So take a look at
Eric Leclerc At the Table, or not, the choice is yours.
