"Paul Vigil is soft-spoken and humble, but behind that compelling demeanor is a diabolical mind. He is one of the best magicians working today!" -Lance Burton

"If I had a gun to my head and had to do something completely 100% astonishing to save my life, I'd hire Paul to do it for me." -Paul Harris

learn some of his secrets!

Fantastic Classics! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2019
Watch and learn from a true working class performer. Paul shares great tips and routines to take your magic to the next level.

Paul takes classical pieces of magic and gives them fantastic plot twists, handling tips or presentational ideas (sometimes all three!) to create beautiful pieces of Magic that easily fit inside your pockets.

Paul shows great variety in this performance act and the tips and ideas that he shares are priceless. Paul’s book was called Classic Fantastic hence my title above. The newer book Doors of Deception contains the Phantom Pin routine. All books sadly out of print, this is the next best learning resource.

Learn from a working PRO Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 25th, 2019
This lecture was simply outstanding!! Paul tips close-up routines he has done for years at his show in Las Vegas and private parties. Every trick is not only a miracle but Paul explains all the patter and nuances that make this lecture a MUST SEE. Whenever a working pro with Paul’s reputation teaches his pet routines you know the quality is simply outstanding. The routines are technically easy...... but the real value here is learning how Paul presents them in such a polished and confident manner. Great stuff!,

Master effects from a true Master! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 1st, 2019
After seeing Paul perform Free Will at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, I was able to see just how powerful the effect plays first hand. I can tell you from that experience this effect will fry any audience!
Paul’s three card monte is the best I’ve ever seen with probably the most magical endings to the effect there is. This is a wonderful presentation of the classic effect that is sure to leave them scratching their heads in disbelief.
The Phantom Pin routine is worth the price of the lecture in my opinion. This is known as one of Paul’s favorite and most requested routines. It is absolutely amazing to witness in person and the video shows it best. It looks so effortless and there is no evidence the pin was torn through the cloth. It’s truly amazing to see.
Perhaps my favorite piece is Thou Shalt Not Steal. This is a new take on the classic two bill transpo that is as clean as possible. Both sides of both bills are shown before and after the effect with no switch! There is nothing to hide and the gimmick does all the work. Nothing to ditch either if you can believe that. Truly the best.
The Fast and Loose is so clean and effortless looking there can be no way to control the outcome of the game but Paul does it perfectly each time. I had never tried the endless chain before seeing this but ordered a chain from Penguin as soon as I watched the lecture. The secret is so smooth you will never get caught. Learn this routine if nothing else. It truly is amazing.
This is a wonderful selection of some of Paul’s most powerful effects that will leave your spectators thinking you’re a real wizard with uncanny abilities. Namely the ability to actually get inside their heads and control their actions. Which is scary. But from Paul, I wouldn’t expect anything less. Bwahahahaha!!!!

Very enjoyable! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2019
A great mix of magic,con games and mentalism.And not that
really tedious type of mentalism that some mentalists give. A sharp and witty script with Paul obviously enjoying himself.Eugene Burger would have loved it!

Fantastic show Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 3rd, 2019
This is a really wonderful act from Paul Vigil. I really enjoyed the structure of the act and also how he tweaked many classic routines.

The Phantom Pin... This is an amazing routine and Paul changing the effect to be a torn and restored style effect is brilliant.

Fast and Loose... The reason I never did the effect was the throws. They needed a lot of space and Paul made them practical and put them together in a well structured routine.

Mind Melding Magician... This is just brilliant and it's already changed the way I do the brainwave effect.

Can't be happier with the purchase. The show is worth the price tag alone.

A different style of magician Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 16th, 2019
Well...his style of presentation is different. Outgoing and self serving. It's a video to watch if you don't yet have your magician character.

Also, if you have not studied magic for a few years, then you might not have seen these illusions. Paul does a fine job describing his tricks and his attitude as to why he presented them.

The Best Value Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 2nd, 2019
Any single routine in this act is worth the price of the download. His fast and loose routine is so well thought out and I've loved the bit with the pin and napkin since I first saw it. Wonderful lecture. And of course it's taped at the Magic Circle because why wouldn't it be?

Magic's best kept secret. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 25th, 2019
Paul Vigil, without question, is one of the finest magicians living today. His brand of magic is charming, intelligent, and mystifying. The Great Tomsoni, Johnny Thompson, regarded Mr. Vigil very highly. Watch this lecture and you will understand why.

Genius Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 9th, 2019
There is a reason that Mr. Vigil's books sell out more quickly than tickets to a Jamy Swill lecture on how to win friends. It is because he is one of magic's great thinkers, and had been influenced by several great thinkers.
This lecture is worth double the amount, easily. The tips, careful thought (some might say obsessive), and the clear routine rather than just a trick are all pure gold. Just the handkerchief trick alone is worth the price of the lecture.
Add that to the fact that Paul is one of the nicest people in magic and you have a winner.
I have lots (and lots) of lectures from Penguin. This is easily in my top five, even my top three.
Don't buy this; the material is too good and should be kept secret, so pass it by and let a few working pros get it for the real value, Things that can be done with everyday objects, yet seem more like magic than a puzzle. I am so glad that I purchased this that it makes up for any lecture that wasn't that great.
Paul is a master who has thought of everything, I have no higher recommendation than the name; it was done by Paul Vigil! What else do you need?

Just perfect. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 29th, 2019
I think this is just about the best performance/lecture I've seen on Penguin! Definitely in the top 5. These routines are all classics, and Paul Vigil has put some very nice touches on them. This is high-caliber corporate entertainment, that is not difficult to do, and yet will thrill audiences. But the presentation is what makes these routines all work so well. Paul is a very charming performer with an engaging personality. He's interesting. This is a performance/lecture I really enjoyed. (Also, Dan Harlan just gets better and better at hosting these. He's a very talented man in his own right, yet he always comes across as humble and really allows the featured performer to shine. And Dan always asks good questions. ) I can't say enough good things about this one, Penguin. Really impressive stuff.
