Scott's first lecture was filled with some of the funniest and hardest hitting magic penguin has
ever had. He is funny and a brilliant creator but he put this lecture together too fast and it
showed. There were too many bits and not enough tricks (the bits weren't as funny this year either).
I feel like he took the routines he doesn't do anymore and threw them together. The invisible deck
alone is worth the lecture price but it certainly wasn't David Williamson or Mac King level.
Well… At least I'm glad you thought the invisible deck was good. Believe you said "worth the price of the lecture." So why the hating?
The invisible deck was great Scott, and my apologies if I sounded personal because I really am a huge fan. Your first lecture was in my opinion perhaps the best ever had here, some of the material I use, others I didn't but it was all useful. I really don't believe it was your fault, you really weren't given enough time to put the lecture together. And again I'm very sorry if it sounded personal, I realize that I do kind of sound like a dick. Your fault is not in delivering bad material, it is giving us way too much of your best material the first time.
Yeah… I guess I did overachieve that first one material-wise!
And you're right once I got word I was filling in for Sonny Fontana, I only had about two weeks to get it together.
If I end up doing it again next year, I'll focus a little more on the tricks and a little less on the jokes.
