“Marc Paul is a charming deceiver. He has the ability to include the whole audience in his routines so people feel like active participants in unforgettable experiences. Marc is also one of the most creative mentalists on this planet. I like and respect him, even though he fools me over and over again.” - Barrie Richardson
“Marc Paul has had his own TV series, numerous sell out theatre shows, works for some of the top companies in the world and has created some incredibly direct and impromptu material. Put simply … he’s really worth listening to.
Marc has been an invaluable friend and resource on my journey through mentalism. His experience and mastery of our craft has helped on a number of occasions to refine and perfect my own routines.
Beyond that, his own creations and thinking will ensure you’re left with pieces you can not only learn to do quickly, you’ll actually want to perform them for real people too.” - Colin McLeod
"In a time of so much 'mentalism nonsense', it’s great to know that Marc Paul is in the world. His work is solid, practical and actually performed for real paying audiences - I love him" – John Archer
"Not only is Marc Paul is one of the most knowledgeable mentalists in the world today, but he probably has more experience of working in front of real people than any of us. Yes, you'll learn some incredibly practical new material from Marc, but of even greater value are the gems of his expertise that you can only learn from a successful, seasoned pro. He is without a doubt one of my favourite mentalists on the planet" - Ken Dyne (Full time Mentalist and Author of 'Bairn')
"Marc Paul is unquestionably one of the UK’s most knowledgeable all-round performers. Although primarily an award winning, world-class mind-reader, as a close-up magician, trade-show performer, presenter and stage magician there is no equal that I know of. If you don’t find something of value from Marc’s lecture then may I cheekily suggest to you that it’s time to get out of the business!" - Nick Einhorn
What will he teach?
This lecture will feature a complete unpublished STRUCTURED mentalism act using minimal props with multiple reveals all brought about by streamlined methods. Effects include:
A demonstration of lightning fast calculation that, for a change, is NOT a magic square.
The Double Blind-Drawing Duplication PLUS:
A drawing duplication that involves the whole audience. During this thought of words, numbers and personal information are also revealed.
A very clean “hands off” serial number divination (with optional twist ending).
A prediction finale that has been in view the whole time and can be clearly read by the whole audience.
Also in this lecture Marc will teach some of his pet effects:
A super easy and clean number prediction with a great kicker ending. This is suitable for stage or close-up and guaranteed to create gasps.
The Human Equation:
A different approach to “Summing Up” that actively involves ten members of the audience.
AAA Book test:
Anytime, Anywhere, Any book. The exact handling that Marc uses has long been out of print. Here’s a chance to learn all the subtleties that make this an impressively direct and deceptive book test with ANY borrow book. Marc has used this on British TV by having a complete stranger pick any book off of any shelf in a book store think of a word and Marc directly reveals what they are thinking.
The AAA Phone Mystery:
A compact re-working of Annemann’s Classic “Telephone Drama” that enables you to reveal a full length phone number (usually 11 digits) WITHOUT resorting to any memory work. Perfect for close-up with NO reset.
An approach to a one ahead routine with no visible one-ahead.
Also Marc will share many professional touches and insights learned from years of experience performing in all sorts of environments.
