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 a three-volume download where 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.

From Kenner’s Picture This to King’s Bill in Pen, the Impromptu Magic Project will get you ready to perform for friends, family, and strangers, no matter where you are (yes, even over video). Some of these tricks you won’t have seen before, while others will offer new applications and subtleties you can adapt for both impromptu settings and other kinds of magic you perform.

Volume 1 tricks:
Give Me That (Mac King) - Vanish a coin in a cloth napkin, produce the coin, then produce someone’s drink!

Vanishing Napkin (Bill Herz) - Roll a paper napkin into a ball that slowly gets smaller and smaller until it disappears.

PK Pencil 1&2 (Banachek) - Make a pencil move using only your mind, then split it in half with a borrowed bill.

Instant Psychic (Mike Caveney) - Give anyone psychic powers; you’ll leave the room while they divine a random selection.

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.

Volume 3 tricks:
Right on Time (Bill Herz) - Set your watch with a prediction of the time a stranger will randomly select on theirs.

Bill in Pen (Mac King) - Vanish a borrowed bill; it reappears inside a pen that’s been in full sight the entire time.

PK Pencil 3 (Banachek) - Snap an ordinary pencil in half using only the power of your mind.

Cardless Card Trick (Bill Herz) - Reach into someone’s imagination to predict a thought-of playing card

"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

I have purchased volume 1 and 3, and so far I really enjoyed the first one(because the third didn't come out yet). volume one was great! A lot of good insight on the tricks themselves.
The way they explain everything is first they do a studio performance, second an explanation, third a real world performance(by vinny this time) and to end, a discussion about the real world performance. This procedure is the same for every trick and is very helpful. They all sit down and take a good look at the bad things that happened, what to do and what not to do.

And now for the tricks:
1. Glass production - really nice and easy, impromptu drink production which works really good for any dinner!

2. Napkin vanish - I love this!!! Best part of this volume and will make you smile the second you see it! Great thinking and instruction, especially for l*****g.

3.PK pencil - I didn't really like this effect. Could be nice for some people but just isn't that good, and has a lot of parts which feel weird and unnecessary.

4. Instant psychic - Nice but I will never use it. Someone chooses 1 out of 3 objects, and your assistant which is in the other room guesses what it is. While it's very fair because the both of you are never in the room together, you don't need to talk, the method is very clever and they explain exactly how the trick should look and point out what vinny did wrong, it's very obvious even for a lay audience. It doesn't matter that they don't know what the c*** is, because as soon as they understand that their is one, everything is ruined.

In conclusion, 2 of the tricks are really nice and I look forward for the rest, but the 2 others aren't great.

For the price, I think it's a really good deal: 2 very good IMPROMPTU trick and being able to listen to a discussion between real pro's for 20 dollars? Get it!

Oh and by the way, I didn't like the real world performances at all! He keeps saying that he had to learn a bunch of tricks very fast in a few hours, which is an OK excuse, but in fact, the bad performances really helped the discussion and showed us all what NOT to do.

I was really disappointed. In order for me to perform an effect, I have to like the technique and have to be fooled. Some of the tricks involved assistance from a non-magician which I find unacceptable. There were a couple that were interesting but most left me flat and certainly not fooled.
