"One of our greatest living magical performers." -Derren Brown
What will he teach?
The legendary David Berglas shares with me, and you, a rich and compelling retrospective of his stellar career spanning well over half a century. He has literally appeared in every form of media known to mankind, and performed in every type of venue... including places you'd never expect.
He takes us behind-the-scenes to reveal the immense amount of thought and effort that went into performing his very first publicity stunt. And, when you realize he conceived the solution to this incredible challenge without ever having performed anything before, you begin to appreciate the brilliance of this remarkable man.
He then proceeds to show us some of his other big stunts, including revealing information by tracing it out with a motorcycle. That's pretty bad-ass!
David also talks about his early TV work, some of the famous people he's met and performed for, and his involvement with the Magic Circle.
We also get a chance to chat with his son, Marvin, about what it was like to have a famous father and how it inspired him to start his own successful magic company.
David then shares more great stories about celebrities and his involvement in motion pictures. Plus, we get a glimpse at the third generation of the Berglas magic dynasty.
You really owe it to yourself to listen to this fascinating man whose elegant complexity of methods baffled generations of audiences and magicians alike. Yes, you'll learn some secrets, big secrets... but, more importantly, you'll learn a new way to think about your effects, your career, and yourself.
If you want to learn about the commitment it takes to become a legend, and what it's like to live the life of an International Man of Mystery...you absolutely have to tune in here.
