What will he teach?

In this Penguin Live lecture, filmed at the prestigious Magic Circle in London, Lu Chen shares his thoughts and experiences from his incredibly successful career. Plus, he performs and teaches some remarkable routines that demonstrate his latest ideas and performance philosophies.

Tossed-out Deck- Lu Chen reveals the first four cards one-at-a-time by using a truly weird ability. Then he's able to name all the rest of the thought-of cards, plus a PIN number, and a random animal from someone's mind. After naming a few more cards without even using the deck, he shows that the last card thought-of has been predicted from the very start.

Number Prediction- which allows everyone to verify their numbers throughout the process and results in a fun, unexpected revelation of the total hidden in the first prediction. It's surprising, clever, and happens really... fast.

Blind Folded- While he's blindfolded and his back is turned, a randomly chosen card is placed anywhere in deck. Now, without looking at all, he locates the selected card. The same idea is repeated with someone else from the audience choosing, and losing, a card. Nobody else knows what it is. But this time, Lu Chen doesn't even touch the cards. Instead, he instructs a spectator to perform a series of card moves ending with a single card in their hand. There's no way it could be the selected card, yet, unbelievably, it is. And yes, he reveals how to do it... for the first time ever.

Who is he?

Lu Chen is an iconic figure in the world of magic whose TV shows have been seen by more than one billion viewers throughout Asia including Korea, Japan, and China.

I'm an avid reader of books like "Magic and Showmanship," and if you are too, you might enjoy this lecture. The majority of it is Lu and Dan chatting about audience perception, about the considerations of televised performance, and a few very counter-intuitive insights into truisms that magicians (especially mentalists and mental magicians) have held sacred for generations.

This does not contain a lot of tricks. The final trick, while it plays incredibly strongly to magicians, may be no more impressive to laypeople than a standard card trick. The tossed-out deck is really, really good, and Dan has some ideas that can make it even easier to perform. The number prediction is good, but not world-changing.

I'm glad I saw this, but I'm also glad it was through the subscription. I would not have been satisfied if I'd payed $40 for it.

I agreed with what Tetelos had said. If you read about the content beforehand, it should be a surprise for that the video contain three tricks.
Very glad to be able to hear many of his personal opinions about showmanship, especially sections about how to structure the flow of the performance. Also his unique and exciting career is definitely a highlight. It is very intersesting and entertaining to hear stories from a different cultural context. The last trick is fun and a nice fit for magician gatherings. Hahaha, smart and sneaky.

Before I give my review I have to adress the other reviews of the lecture.
If you read the description of the lecture, in the "What will he teach" section you can see only three tricks. Also in the trailer of the lecture you can understand that this is not a lecture full of tricks. So please don't complain about that.
Also I have to say I don't think this lecture is overpriced. How much money would you pay to attend a live lecture like that held in magic circle in London?

This lecture contains a lot of theory, performance philosophy and stories from Lu Chen's career that I found very interesting and usefull. I don't think that you waste your time when you hear a seasoned professional share his thoughts.

The effects he shared are very interesting. The nuberber prediction is somethig I will definetely use. Easy to do and bulletproof. He makes sure that the spectators cannot reverse engineer anything. and the revelation is very smart (and fast).
The presentation of the tossed-out deck is a master class on how to improve the routines you already use. He took something that a lot of magicians use with mediocre reactions and turned it to a real miracle.
Finally the blind folded card trick is the reason I bought this dowload. It's a great piece of magic thater and the method is brilliant.

I really enjoyed this lecture

A wonderful delight to hear his way of thinking and theory, brilliant tricks were gravy on top. Report this review

I knew Lu Chen when we were much younger, yes, we are of the same age and even back then talking to him, one would know that he was destined to be a star. He always had out of the box additions to existing routines, even new ones we just saw.

Over the years, I witnessed his incredible rise to stardom and he is HUGE in Asia. I am not sure if he still remembers me but I am so proud and happy for him.

I am not sure if I will ever get to put his theory to use, especially those he shared about selection and handling of effects for TV but through his generous sharing in his lecture, I know I will make considerations that I would not have otherwise considered.

His touches to the 3 routines he taught in the lecture also showed a glimpse into his brilliance, layering of methods that rendered an audience little way of backtracking and most importantly, how he is able to present the effects intriguing enough that one can’t help but be on the edge of his seat wanting to find out what happens next.

I really enjoyed this lecture because not that the tricks taught were not good enough, they are great but because it’s inspiring to know that so much thought can and should be put into the performance of magic. And I thought I was crazy, I am mild in comparison ;)

Although there are only few tricks he taught, all of the tricks are fool proof. I love Lu Chen handling and his presentation.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2019
This is an interesting lecture to review. Parts were outstanding and other parts were less than interesting....in fact parts were boring. Of course with someone of Lu Chen’s reputation it is easy to automatically rate this a 5-star lecture. However, the content was not 5-star material. The lecture contained TOO MUCH theory discussion that was neither compelling nor riveting. The tricks, which were few, were ok. I enjoyed listening to Lu Chen’s experiences. The main point I’d like to convey is this: the most valuable and highly rated Penguin lectures are the ones that fellow magicians say they watch over and over again...... or refer back to several times. Each time they gleam new insights, new ideas and new methods from the lecturer that they can apply to their evolving study and work. Sadly, this isn’t one of those lectures.

So prefect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 29th, 2019
Liu Chen has told us what is magic in this lecture and how to perform magic. If you want to learn some new tricks, sorry, it is not suited for you. But, the method of the blindfold is so genius. Liu Chen is my favorite magician. To be honest, I watch a lot of lectures. I believe that this lecture is one of the best lectures that I have ever seen before.

Lu Chen is among the best! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 28th, 2019
The theory is solid as is the magic. Chen explains how to take a quick tossed out deck and turn it into a much longer Q and A piece of magic. This is definitely geared toward advanced magicians that have a solid understanding of basic mentalism methodology. If you do not you may be lost easily. I am surprised that an a-lister in China would share so much with us.
