I'm definitely a little late to the game on this but still wanted to share my thoughts. I've been
performing many of Scott's routines for the last couple of years including Slashed, Shattered,
Velocity, Hanky Panky, Needles and Shoe Business. (I feel like his material and Bill Abbott's make
up 80% of my act anymore). I also saw Scott and Puck lecture together at Denny's in the last year or
two and thoroughly enjoyed their lecture/show. Being snowed in a couple of days earlier this week, I
decided to download the lecture...and I'm so glad I did.
The lecture was even more
entertaining and I had anticipated. While he teaches quite a bit of magic, what you learn about
showmanship and production values just watching him perform FAR out weighs any tricks he teaches. He
also shared quite a few updates to routines I'd previously purchased of his; some of which I plan to
incorporate into my show. He and Dan Harlan put on the best Penguin lecture I've seen so far and
it's going to be tough to top.
Now the bad news...the lecture ended up costing me
$230...because it talked me into buying the Final Cut.
