"I haven't known Jack that long but I have quickly become a fan. He's not just a clever creator, he's also a true showman. If you're looking for off-beat, killer effects, elegant handlings and engaging presentations, then check out Jack's lecture. Trust me, you'll be a fan, too."              — Cameron Francis

"Jack has gotten me interested in packet tricks all over again."— Geoff Williams

"If Magic is all about secrets then Jack is one of the best kept secrets in magic today. His well-structured routines are a joy to behold. Learn a few and I guarantee your audiences will never say — You don’t know Jack!"— Michael Kaminskas

"I have known Jack for a few years now. His professional approach to routines are both well thought out, and entertaining. He is a joy to watch and learn from. He fooled me many times, and for that I am grateful. This is stuff you can, and will use. Excellent."— Pattrick Przysiecki  (International Magic Champion)

"Jack has it all. Wit, charm, elegance, a sense of humor and skill that far passes that of most modern performers. He's what James Bond would be if he were a magician. Pay attention to every word he says and you will learn more than you ever thought possible."— Brent Braun

"Jack is a charming magician who can do it all. His “Samsung Fiasco” is one of the funniest and most clever variations on Pat Page’s “Easy Money” that I’ve ever seen."— John Lovick

What will he teach?

Jack is a generalist who loves to offer variety in his magic act. You’ll see some strong and theatrical card magic, but the lecture won’t be limited to cards. You’ll also learn about presentation, psychology, misdirection and timing. All of the tricks presented in this lecture are in his current working repertoire, so you can be sure there will be no filler. Each one is practical, hard hitting and reputation making and most have an automatic reset.

Nervous jolt : A coin is placed on a spectator’s hand and some pressure is made on the fingers and elbow to channel the energy. The coin eerily rise until it flips completely without you even touching it. Magician control everything despite the fact that everything is super fair and justified. Reputation making stuff.

Silver dust : A strong and very easy to follow coins across routine that has a real meaning to your audience. A nice lesson in psychology and body movement.

Printing 99.0 : A streamlined presentation for the classic Dominique Duvivier’s Printing. An easy "in your face" reset makes it a real worker. Even if you know and perform Printing, this one will really catch you off guard with the killer ending that will drop their jaw.

ESPecially Wild revisited : A super clean and direct handling for this Paul Hallas classic that you’ll fool yourself with, introducing the "Billboard enveloppes". A quick and nice mentalist effect followed by a super strong wild cards effect. Automatic reset.

Ultimate Ace Unleashed : Jack’s version on the Macdonald’s aces plot. Lots of ideas and killer subtleties that put it on another level. Automatic reset.

Samsung’s fiasco : The version of Richard Sanders Extreme Burn that everyone was hoping for. The bills change occurs 2 times and the trick now as a real meaning and is logical on top of you having an entertaining story to tell.

Daytona coins : A spectacular/do it everywhere/automatic reset coin routine that will establish you as a master sleight of hand artist. 17 magical moments in less than a minute will let them gasping for air. Need a little work but not hard to master.

Spectator’s ambition : Jack’s personalized version on the ambitious card plot where the spectator is the center of attention and gets all the applause. Lots of original phases and strong psychology throughout. This conclude by an extremely clean and self contained rising card. A great crowd pleaser. This include an original idea that will help you sign more clients.

Say my Name : An incredibly strong and direct mentalism effect that you can perform hopping table or on stage. A "magician’s in trouble" effect that really knock their socks off. Based on the "Oscar" plot. Automatic reset.

Zombie : Jack’s version on the classic cannibal plot, but with zombies. A nice, surprising, theatrical and streamlined version of this great classic. Uses the "Billboard enveloppe" and a severed hand. Highly entertaining.

Viva Las Vegas : Close up theatrical magic at its best. Jack’s adaptation of this great Mark Mason classic. You offer the spectators a trip to Las Vegas. An entertaining routine follows where you offer a 100$ casino chip to the spectator if you’re not able to find their freely chosen card using a coin. Strong, crystal clear, and at the end they will clap until their hands hurts.

Money Maker : An entertaining bill routine where you explain them how to easily make money without effort. You proceed to change your own 20$ bill into a 50, then the 50 is changed into an 100. You offer them to do the same with their own money and borrow a 20. This time it doesn’t work so instead you offer to change their 20 into 2 20$ bill … so … you take out scissors and cut their bill in 2 … at the end, you restore it and have the serial number checked for authenticity. Nice sure-fire gags throughout.

Premonition : Jack’s take on the book test plot. A prediction is made and 2 spectators makes free choices to chose a page number and a word anywhere in that page. An un-gimmicked dictionary is used. Reputation making material.

I really got something from this.The billboard envelopes are a really great way to start packet tricks and to create
interest.The ESP trick has a great switch and I would never
have wanted to perform it had it not been for this.
I loved the 'Tommy Wonder' like intro to 'Printing' as well.The rising coin is a very nice subtle use of a
m****t! Some good new moves [for me] with the Ambitious card make this one of only a handful of lectures I will return to.Thank you Jack!
And thank you Brad Henderson! Now if only Michael Weber would do a lecture!

Well prepared and well done! Excellent lecture providing many useful aspects. First all tricks have an original presentation. For example the classic cannibal plot is presented with zombies cards. Secondly all the tricks are designed to allow reset for strolling magic. Thirdly each packet trick has a custom made envelope allowing to stay away of a simple "card trick". It's also a model for future lecture to give references of gimmick material on a written sheath which make everything easily accessible to foreign attendants

How in hell do we never heard about this guy ? He can do it all and he's very charming. There is lot of valuable lessons to learn here. He's extremely respectful while being funny at the same time. ALL the tricks presented are reputation makers and almost all of them have automatic resets. They all have something original to offer. Jack really knows his craft and I feel that I'll be back to this lecture again and again. His transitions are flawless and we got 13 highly commercial killer effects. There is lots of diversity and nothing not to like here. This is the best lecture I've seen in a very long time. There is some DIY but nothing hard and he always clearly show a sheet of paper with all the necessary infos. (what type of labels, magnets, etc). Very highly recommended.

Jack live Act Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 18th, 2019
And I want to congratulate Jack again on his lecture.
I have been a subscriber to penguin live for a few years now (which means I've seen quite a few conferences already), and I can say without hesitation that it is one of the best to date. All routines are excellent, commercial and powerful. Jack has brought something more (accessories, subtleties) to each routine that makes them memorable. There are already 3 routines that have inspired me and that I will use in my performances. I hope that Jack will release more products in the future because I am a new fan. It was a fabulous discovery. In fact I shouldn't praise it because it's so good that I should keep it to myself:)
Do yourself this pleasure and buy his conference
