One of Magic’s Greatest Teachers Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 21st, 2015
All I can say is WOW! Jeff is an amazing teacher combining his years of experiences, quick wit and light hearted sense of humor into a presentation that was not only informative but FUN to watch. Having studied with Jeff in Las Vegas I’m a little biased, but Jeff is one of magic’s best teachers because he understands what magic is supposed to be. He covers a lot of real world, time tested material that works. During this near 2 and a half hour event he teaches 12 killer effects, and several full routines including:

-2 different Card productions
- Card spinning techniques
-Best Ever Knots Off Silk
-Cardini’s Serpent Silk
-The Waltzing Matilda (a simple one person animated silk)
-Why a squeaker needs to be in your repertoire
-The Ritual of Liberation- a spectacular mini illusion with a powerful message that you can take anywhere
-A Paper Flower Production (it looks real, the best of its kind I have seen)
-Double Shot (the production of 2 shot glasses)
-The Japanese Butterfly Trick
-The Single Dancing Cane

However this lecture is more than just tricks, Jeff shares stories, talks about magic theory, and shows you his commando show, a full 40 minute stage show that fits into an eyeglass case! Just his talk on routing and making you magic bigger is worth the price of this video. If you want to learn from one of magic’s best, then join Jeff McBride at the table.

Greetings all,
I had a great time filming these DVDs for our magic community.
Such a joy to share my magic with you!

For those who want to know what I cover in Part #1


12 effects taught + Professional tips, advice,theory and philosophy.

CARDINI'S SERPENT SILK- a knotted silk unties itself in a mysterious way.
Now you can learn " The Cardini way" and it uses no reel!

WALTZING MATILDA- DANCING HANK- very practical, with no threads, for parlor or stage.

BEKOS-KNOTS OF SILK- one of my favorite stage and parlor effects. Knots are realistically tied, then come off the silk, leaving large holes in the silk..great laughs!

REALISTIC BLOOMING BRANCH-PAPER FLOWER PRODUCTION- I am proud to say that I no longer need an expensive blooming bush..this look more organic and less mechanical!

THE JAPANESE FLOATING BUTTERFLIES- A classic of Asian magic. I was taught this hypnotic effect while on tour in Japan.
You can use it Close up or stage! It fills the stage with color , movement and magic!

2 glasses of liquid are produced from a borrowed napkin,

THE DANCING LIGHT CANE-MY SOLUTION TO THE DANCING CANE!- I used this routine for years as an opener and closer. It gets attention and puts your audience in a trance!
It is Very practical and can close a show!

THE RITUAL OF LIBERATION BEAD AND STRING MYSTERY- a string suddenly penetrates a participants finger. The use of magic & meaning with a metaphor for freedom.

For many this will be the 1st time they learn this classic. I perform it almost every time I share impromptu magic. My version needs no will always have a miracle in your pocket!

2 UNIQUE CARD PRODUCTION FOR PARLOR OR STAGE- as used in my stage and parlor shows for many years.
Also included are talks and advice:

Following is James Conti's Review:
Jeff McBride came to At The Table for two weeks in a row. The first week (reviewed here) was filmed in the Murphy's ATT studio, whereas week 2 was filmed at the Magic and Mystery School (see the second review).
James says:
During this lecture, Jeff gives you some extremely valuable insight into creating and putting together an act. He gives you a sample act and from there, you can take the routines taught and place them into your own act. There is a lovely "knots off silk" routine (with an extra variation taught), a card manipulation opener and a paper swarm of butterflies routine with a fan. Each effect is covered in detail, and he always gave extra variations and versions of the effects.

A few other effects taught were:
Long Distance Spinner Variation - this simple prop that is often overlooked can be used to speed up your long distance spinner. I discovered that it also gives you more accuracy too.
Floating cane - Jeff taught his floating cane routine which uses a light up cane whilst the lights are dimmed. The routine is incredible to witness, and Jeff's theory on this routine is very valuable.
Torn and restored bill - Jeff taught a really nice impromptu torn and restored bill with two phases. It is completely impromptu and can be done with a borrowed bill. This would be great to perform for a cashier when you get change back from a purchase.
A few more card manipulation moves were taught as well :)

Jeff's insight and advice is invaluable. During this lecture, Jeff gave so much away, and feel like I have become a better magician after watching this lecture. I honestly believe that. This lecture is definitely worth your time. 10/10

This is a fantastic lecture, so much is taught on this DVD. Including a full 30-45 minute show that fits into a glasses case. Good mixture of close up and stage/parlour. Recommended!
