You’re at a party, someone mentions you’re a magician, and the next thing you know you’re being asked to perform. Sound familiar? Vinny Grosso noticed that his professional repertoire wasn’t a perfect fit for those social settings, so he gathered some of his most knowledgeable friends to learn mind-blowing tricks that work virtually anywhere on a moment’s notice.

This is Volume two of a three-volume download, Banachek, Bill Herz, Chris Kenner, Mac King, and Mike Caveney take turns teaching Vinny their favorite impromptu effects. For each trick you’ll learn from detailed one-on-one instructions, watch real world footage of Vinny performing at a cocktail party, and polish it all off with in-depth discussions and critique from the group.

Volume 2 tricks:
Acrobatic Straw (Mike Caveney) - Cause an unwrapped plastic straw to mysteriously jump back into its paper wrapper.

Picture This (Chris Kenner) - Take a photo on someone else’s phone to predict the object they will randomly select.

Touch of Salt (Mac King) - Vanish a knife by swallowing it, only to produce it from your butt; a dinner table classic.

Sugar Packets (Bill Herz) - Predict the one sugar packet that will remain after someone freely eliminates the rest.

"Impromptu effects are the sort of thing we all love to trade around and jam on at magic clubs or conventions. The style, structure and content of this project makes it feel like a jam session you would kill to get in on." - Carisa Hendrix

"Six of the best minds in magic together in one project, I shouldn't say anything else besides 'buy it now and thank me later!' It’s just f****** great!" - Bernardo Sedlacek

"This series reminds us all that the secret to the art of magic lies in the subtleties. You’ll find some simple tricks and, more importantly, the little touches to make them great. Lots to learn here." - Stan Allen

"I'm only halfway through the video and there are already a few things that are going into my permanent repertoire. I'm a big fan of impromptu magic and I was surprised to learn some great things I’ve never seen before. Every magician should watch this masterclass in impromptu magic so they're always ready when the situation arises." - Michael Mode

"First, what an amazing group. You can't go wrong when you bring Banachek, Bill Herz, Chris Kenner, Mac King, Mike Caveney and Vinny Grosso together to teach and discuss magic. The effects are great and truly impromptu, designed to perform with everyday objects rather than special props. The panel discussions include valuable tips, ideas and insights based on the group’s many years of professional experience in magic. Highly recommended!" - Jen Kramer

"This is like being a fly on the wall while some terrific (and noteworthy) magicians have a session. The result is one of the most enjoyable and useful videos one could wish for." - David Regal

"The Impromptu Magic Project would be a must-buy if it was just hearing these legends of magic give advice. The fact that they also tip the tricks that back up their philosophy (and you get to see Vinny perform the tricks in a real-world setting) means this has to be in your library if you are serious about magic" - David Corsaro

"Who gets to spend three hours with five world class magicians learning some simple, very effective tricks and discussing the finer points of presentation? There are some great insights shared that are invaluable to any magician, regardless of their level of experience. And the material is presented in such a wonderful, refreshing manner. I highly recommend this to all magicians!" - Marc DeSouza

"I love the premise of this project. Not only will you learn amazing tricks but you will learn how to do it and how NOT to do it. Vinny could have edited the tape but he didn't and that is why those tapes are valuable. Don’t miss out!" - Michel Huot

Chris Kenner is my favorite Report this review

I bought this video specifically for Chris Kenner. I wanted to see what trick he taught, how he performed it, and any other things I might see or learn about him. So for me, this video is a 4 out of 5 stars. Chris explains his philosophy about performing “off stage.” This mental trick is the one he performs because it is not a card / coin trick. The only problem is Vinny Grosso does not do the first part of the trick the way Chris Kenner taught him. The trick worked fine for Vinny, but he did not do Chris’ trick exactly the way Chris taught him. Vinny had to learn 14 tricks very quickly for this 3 DVD series, so he does not quite perform the tricks as he was taught by the magicians on these DVDs. Chris Kenner’s teaches his trick very well. It is a simple one you already probably know or could create yourself. What I paid for was Chris Kenner’s overall magic viewpoint, any fine points about why he performs this trick the way he does, and his opinions about impromptu magic. You get a very, very quick peak at his coin purse (he never pulls out any coins). This may not mean much to some people, but I am glad I was able to see this on the video. From this video, you can “piece together” a picture of the magic items Chris does carry and when he performs them.
I don’t see myself ever performing the other tricks on this video. It would not be fair for me to comment on them since I knew when I bought this video I only wanted to see Chris Kenner.

Pros: the audience was very challenging for Vinny. This is a good thing. One of the complaints some people have about L&L videos is the audience is the always the same, too complacent, etc. This audience was very challenging. During Vinny’s performance of Mac King’s knife swallowing trick, they were “burning” Vinny’s hands. The tips Mac gave Vinny worked and the audience relaxed and Vinny pull off a great performance.

Cons: Most magicians already have these tricks in their magic libraries. Vinny doesn’t perform the tricks completely the way he was taught because he has not had enough time to properly learn them.

Summary: I bought this video for Chris Kenner and I am completely satisfied. I gave it a 4 out of 5 because Vinny does not perform the first part of the trick the way Chris taught him. The other tricks might suit you. In my opinion, the weakest trick on the video is “Sugar Packets” by Bill Herz. That’s just my opinion, your mileage may vary.
