"Brilliant! You nailed me a half a dozen times. Good work. It just convinces me even more that this is an ideal trick for a bar. You've done your homework young man! Good job" -Doc Eason, Master Bar Magician.

"If you love card magic with elegance, precision and technical finesse, Dan's the man. If you couldn't care less about that but just want to see a master who knows how to engage, entertain and delight people with practical 'worker' material, well, Dan's the man for that as well. There's a lot of hype and false dawns in the magic world, but Daniel Chard is the real deal: an expert in his field with amazing talent and plenty of smart thinking to share. It's a joy to see him work or teach. Not to be missed." -Ian Rowland, Mentalist, Author, Speaker.

"I've been a big fan of Daniel Chard's Card Magic for many years now. His sleight of hand is just beautiful and all of his work has a stunning, visual quality that is a joy to watch!"-John Carey, Author and Lecturer.

"Daniel chard has transcended commercial card magic by breathing new life in to old classics. I absolutely adore Daniel's Card to box routine....BUY THIS NOW!!!" -Kieron Johnson, The Ice Man And Internal Contortionist.

"Daniel is a real worker... he spent years cutting his teeth at Illusions Magic Bar UK. He’s gone on to not only be an amazing technician and creator, but also one of the finest close up performers in the business. Learn from him!" -James Brown, The Professional Opportunist.

"Dan first entered my bar over 10 years ago when he was a young and shy performer. I have given him advice and guidance which has shaped him as a performer. I'm proud I have also given him the chance to show he can step away from cards and be the true Entertainer he was born to be." -Mark Bennett, Stage Magician And Creator Of The UK’s #1 Magic Bar, Smoke And Mirrors Magic Bar.

"Dan's card handling is super slick, and his effects are extremely powerful and commercial. If you are a working magician, or you are thinking of becoming one. Ask yourself, do you want to perform some really hard hitting magic? Then you need to check out Dan's work!" -Gary Jones, One of the UK's Top Close Up Magicians.

Just finished watching this last night. All I can say is, brilliant, one of the best Penguin lectures I've seen. Almost four and a half hours of Daniels working repertoire. His card under box is the best you'll ever see, in my opinion. He elevates the Biddle trick to another level (loved it). There is so much good stuff here for everyone, from beginner to pro. Highly, highly recommended, worth every penny and more. Thank you, Mr Chard.

Excellent and long lecture with a lot of material by a good card magician with an elegant and light touch. Among the material a production of a suit in music is particularly appealing. Each move in the lecture is well explained with a nice effort to provide references.

Smooth Card Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 10th, 2019
Daniel gave up so many of his routines from his working repertoire in this 4+ hour super card lecture. These routines have been worked by Daniel for years in front of thousands of audience performances. I was very impressed how one routine smoothly flowed to subsequent routines. The card magic is visual and astonishing. The overall context of the lecture is aimed at the intermediate card handler.....not very difficult to learn or present....and plenty of opportunity to adapt to your personal style. Stunning effects! Thank you David for giving us so many amazing, intelligent and fun routines to present. These routines are foolers of the 1st order. This lecture is comparable in length, scope and outright deceptiveness to other previous Penguin lecturer’s along the likes of Allan Ackerman, Paul Cummins, Nick Einhorn, Dave Forrest and Dani DaOrtiz..... pretty good company!!!

Take Your Card Skills To a NEW Level Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 9th, 2019
Daniel Chard is a powerhouse of card moves and sleights; yet, what you learn in this Live Act is a spectrum of magic for all situations.

Some moves do require a little more practice, but even if you are a beginner, you will pick up some beneficial tools for your performances.

These aren't card 'tricks' - They are astonishments.

You will NOT be disappointed!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 6th, 2019
I discovered Daniels card magic a few years ago and so when I heard that he was going to have a penguin lecture, I jumped at it and downloaded it. 25mins into the 4.5 hour download and my mind is blown with how much magic you get - enough magic to last a lifetime. The first section of the download is a stage set and is fantastic. Daniels energy and audience interaction throughout is second to non. You can see his love for magic. Then there's the teaching, which is very in depth and broken down really well. If you only take one trick from the stage set and work on that, you will not be disappointed. So much magic in such a short time.

Then what I didn't expect and surprised me was a close up set as well. You get to see Daniel perform a professional close up set that he uses and earns money from. Again what can I say amazing and fantastic. What struck me wasn't just the tricks and magic, but again how he interacted with the audience. Daniels passion and love for magic shines through, because you can tell he has spent many hours not just practising, but has performed everything he is sharing in the real world. Again after the close up set, you get some great in depth teaching. It's a 5 star review from me. There is nothing to be disappointed with. Top quality and amazing magic. Highly recommended.

Wow! Just wow! Amazing Report this review

This lecture is 4 1/2 hours of mind blowing magic. I have been doing magic for over 20 years and this lecture has inspired me to learn new moves taught by Dan that will improve my own repertoire let alone add new material to my existing act. I've known Dan for many years and seen him perform many times but this penguin lecture has still blown me away.

Daniels lecture was great! You can tell he really loves performing and has thought out every detail of his performance. His "Chard under Box 2.0" is worth it alone. Definitely pick this up!
