"Dee Christopher is one of the most skilled and talented mentalists that I have met throughout the last 8 years of engaging, testing, judging and watching amazing individuals perform in front of me! His look is cool, mysterious and he projects an aura of mysticism around himself and throughout his act! If you want to be mystified and astonished, I highly recommend him!" -Uri Geller

What will he teach?

In this act, Dee will share some guarded secrets from his full length show which mixes modern mysticism and mentalism flawlessly. The show is neatly tied together with a fast moving and intriguing premise, high impact effects and interactive theatrical moments throughout.

Caged Will- A ‘Free Will’ style effect with a unique method. Three precious items are locked inside an interesting looking box. One by one, each item is taken out by a participant and placed in one of their pockets. A single prediction which is surprisingly found to have been in the audience’s view from the start is revealed to accurately describe each and every action the participant takes.

Saint- A participant proves their intuitive skills in separating out photos of good people from evil people, just by looking into the eyes of the person depicted in each shot! This ingenious method for ‘Out of this world’ with photos can be applied to almost any theme and is quite possibly the cleanest version of the effect you will ever have seen.

The Bell- A unique living and dead test in which a name is revealed. No special envelopes, no markings, no moves. You will always find the ‘dead’ name amongst the living names, while they are sealed in envelopes. A simple and straightforward approach that is as fun to get away with as it is to watch. Dee shares his spirit bell presentation for this effect, but it will work just as well without the theatrics provided!

Inferno- Seeing with the fingertips. Dee somehow manages to read unseen text from Dante’s Inferno just by touching the pages with his fingertips. This demonstration culminates in his reading of a freely written word hidden in a stack of billets or business cards.

Ideomotor Coin Bend- In the penultimate routine of the show, Dee presents a method and presentation for creating a real show piece out of a simple coin bending trick. Two participants are invited upto the stage; one holds a coin in their fist and the other is handed a pendulum. Using the entire audiences participation, the pendulum begins to swing and directs their energy into the coin, which miraculously melts and bends!

Written in the Stars- A unique ‘show prediction’ that proves that fate has controlled some key moments in the show, without jeopardising the content of the act.

Each of these routines is tied to the next using a clever structure and premise. You will learn about character, your power, using props and staging, music cues, branding and much more!

Who is he?

Featured in Comedy Central’s “13 Tricks To Seriously Freak You Out” and seen by millions of people worldwide on BBC3, Fox8 and The Discovery Channel starring in the award winning BBC show “Killer Magic”, Dee Christopher is a highly sought after act.

Presentation needs work, but nice fellow Report this review

There is an opening trailer that presents the performer as edgy, mysterious and powerful. Then the show started. . .

On the one hand, I can appreciate Dee’s request to have the opener problem included in the video. And he rolled with the issue reasonably well. However, this seemed to make the entire rest of the show have an awkward feel. There were several other moments that robbed him of having the command of the stage (e.g. dropping something out of his pocket and saying he didn’t know what it was, placards not staying on the easel and having to hold them, etc.). These were hiccups to the Cris Angel type presentation. (To be fair, he did present as more humorous than Cris and this can conceal problems as if the performer somewhat planned for them. However, you can tell, he did not plan for them.)

The continual trips to pour whiskey and saunter around the stage drinking created lag and not suspense or intrigue.

The reveal with the candle had an awkward moment. Ditch that extra ______ and just put the reveal ________ face down around the candle.

I recommend not continuing to ask if the audience member is “happy.” This will eventually get you smart aleck answers like the audience participant who fired back something to the effect, “Yes, are you?” Unless there is a snappy, interesting come back, this just interrupts the show.

I personally believe that Dee is also messing around with things as show props that literally can come back to haunt him. Careful!

Ending with the placards as a call back to the cards chosen throughout the show was a great idea. This helped seal the flow of the show in retrospect.

Having some music and lighting changes helped create a mood. That was good.

Dee appears to be a genuinely nice fellow. I’ve mentioned that he can be humorous and this makes him more approachable. I think he is looking for something good and wants to make a positive impact. I also think it takes courage to put yourself out there, especially in front of other performers.

I wish him well.

This was the best investment I have made in the last several months. The show alone without explanation was worth the price of the download because Dee is a stellar entertainer. His methods are genius, and if you do mentalism, bizarre, or mental magic, much of this material will go into your show. If I get one routine or even one idea from a lecture, I feel the investment was worth what I paid. I will use many of these routines or some variation of them. I highly recommend that you invest in this lecture. You will not regret this one. By the way, Dee is funny, engaging, and warm. You might not realize that to look at him as his presence is somewhat dark, but he is very personable and fun to watch.

An excellent, wellpresented lecture that contains several excellent routines.
Dee seemed popular with the audience and came across as a true professional.
One of the best lectures available, and much to be learnt about stage craft and audience management from this outstanding lecture.

I really liked Dee’s routine. I love his OOTW method. I think him and Penguin would have a big selling product if they would produce the cards in different themes
