Where can you see the greatest creators and performers share their professional magic act in front of a live audience and then teach you to do it? Only Penguin LIVE!

The world's best magicians spend years developing the perfect act. Magic fans almost never get a chance to learn the real secrets behind what makes the top pros act so amazing. Until now. Penguin Live Acts gives you exclusive access to the biggest names in the industry, as they share how to perform their powerful A-material.

First you'll get to watch the show, performed for a real audience, from start to finish. Then you'll go behind the scenes to learn about the routines, and the real secrets about building an act that can take decades to learn.

Many of the ideas shared have been held back for years, and you can only learn it at Penguin LIVE!

Not bad, not great. One big annoying factor. Report this review

This lecture has some good information and effects in it, but it's quite a bit shorter than most of the other Penguin lectures (a little over an hour). My favorite section of the lecture was on the mirage deck. David and Dan offer some great thoughts and ideas here. There's also several fantastic suggestions for producing social media content, just as mentioned in the description. If you want to do that, you should definitely get this lecture. If you're just interested in learning some new routines, however, that's where some of the other Penguin lectures might be a better value for you.

Now, here's my biggest beef with this lecture: One section is devoted entirely to a great utility item designed by Bonfadini's friend Magic Trick Mike called the gum tool. With this device, you can create some miraculous-looking visual effects either live or on video. The problem, however, is that the gum tool is impossible to find commercially. Some of you could probably make one, but its construction isn't covered on the lecture and would require skills and tools many people don't have. I find it very annoying when a lecture includes ideas with a prop that is virtually impossible for me to buy or make. After all, I think most people who buy and watch these lectures do so because they'd like to actually perform the routines!

Ultimately, the mirage deck material is probably all I'll ever actually perform from this lecture, but there are already tons of ideas for that deck in Hugard's Encyclopedia of Card Tricks, which is much less expensive. Perhaps a lot of people will get a lot out of this lecture. I'm not saying it isn't worthwhile; I'm just saying it wasn't quite my cup of tea. Hopefully, someone can use this review to make a more informed buying decision.

Re!ally BAD Report this review

This was horrible! He spent 40 minutes to cover one trick, a variation of the Svengali deck. Also, the trick looked mostly JUST LIKE the original Svengali presentation from eons ago. His assistant was the biggest "fake" reaction expert, it was nauseating. She is his camera/director, so her pretending to be amazed was pathetic. Just a REALLY BAD LECTURE.

Great lecture Report this review

Wow what some great tips on here with his sharpie and the mirage deck, ( which I will be getting another). I don’t buy many lectures on here because I personally don’t have much time to learn anything new, that being said I watched this one all the way threw.
The magic world has changed for me as a performer so I have been doing a lot of social media platforms lately which has been keeping my mind very creative. He gives a lot of tips on social performances which I believe will help me in my future video performances.
So if your looking to get some creative tips for your video performances I believe this lecture will help.
Thanks David for sharing your knowledge and expertise on this
All the best
