Michael Ammar is an award-winning author, lecturer and performer who has educated and influenced more magicians than anyone else in the world. At the turn of the millennium, Magic Magazine listed Michael Ammar as one of “The Most Influential Magicians of the Twentieth Century.” It’s no wonder, as one of the most prolific authors and teachers of magic in the world, Michael’s awards and achievements are unequaled. Michael's magic encompasses a full spectrum of performance genres: from very intimate, sleight-of-hand to stand-up "parlor" magic, and (more recently) the stage with his presentation of "The Spirit Cabinet." His disarming humor and casual poise only serve to make the impossibilities of his magic even more surprising and powerful. His television credits include two appearances on The Tonight Show; The Late Show with David Letterman; CNN Headline News; World’s Greatest Magic; Travel Channel: Magic of LA; International Magic Awards; The World’s Best Magic Tricks EVER; and several appearances on Japanese and Korean television specials.

Michael has been honored numerous times, including Magician of the Year; six awards from the Academy of Magical Arts; FISM Gold Medal in Close-Up Magic; two awards from the International Magic Awards; Dragon Award; and West Virginia University's Distinguished Alumni award for achieving international recognition in his profession. In the early 1980’s (after publishing some of his earliest books: Success & Magic, Encore 3 and The Topit Book) Michael began visiting local magic shops and clubs to share his ideas. Since then, he has traveled to 52 countries - and in doing so, has instructed over 25,000 people in the theory and practice of modern magic. His seminars have earned him accolades, including the maximum number of Lecturer of the Year awards from the Academy of Magic Arts in Hollywood, California. Michael is recognized as the world’s foremost teacher of magic. David Copperfield calls him “the magician’s magician,” and he was selected by Toys-R-Us as the instructor on “The Magic Video.” In 1991, his book “The Magic of Michael Ammar,” became the fastest selling book in magic history.

Michael has given instructional seminars worldwide - crossing all age, language, and distance barriers. Other professionals, including David Copperfield, Lance Burton, Siegfried & Roy, Doug Henning and Michael Jackson have consulted with Michael for their magic. In the late 1990’s, Michael was the first visiting scholar at the Silvan Magic Academy in Italy - where he was awarded an honorary PhD. The school set out to provide intensive magic study to serious students. The following few years he would periodically give magic classes at the Magic Castle in Hollywood to eager students looking to polish their skills. In 2005, Michael was guest instructor to the College of Magic in South Africa. He later provided curriculum content to the college. He has instructed young and old at international magic conferences, such as: Blackpool Magic Convention, The International Brotherhood of Magicians Convention and FISM (Federation Internationale des Societes Magiques); and magic camps, such as: West Coast Magic Camp and Sorcerers Safari in Canada. On two ground-breaking occasions, Michael Ammar gave the first lecture from the western world to magic fans in the Soviet Union and mainland China. His influence altered the course of the craft in those countries in ways that are still being felt today.

I truly enjoyed my day at the expo. Magicians are not a shy bunch of individuals, so even waiting outside for the doors to open I had a ball with everyone showing off there tricks. Would recommend this, and would for sure attend it again whenever they are in town.

Michael private session was also a blast.

Please do more of these shows.

Four of my friends and I drove out to long Island yesterday to experience the 2nd Penguin Magic Expo in our area. What a great event. I got to meet some great people as well as buy some things that I've wanted for a while. I talked with Meir Yedid for a little while. He has always been an inspiration to me. He is such a nice guy and very easy to talk to. I bought his latest version of his Walking On Water book test which is a lot of fun.
I met and spoke with Christian Schenk from Card Shark in Germany - the producer of Phoenix Cards (For starters) and many great effects. I bought a S.U.M. deck and an effect called ESPionage. Both of which are similar to other marketed effects but I prefer the secret made by Card Shark. Christian is another fellow who was easy to talk to and it was a pleasure meeting him.
I spoke with Brent from Penguin Magic for a few minutes and I was impressed that he remembered my name since the last time we met in person was last year.
I saw Ron from Ronjo magic and he invited me to come out to the shop (Which I plan on doing soon, Ron!)
I had a pleasant conversation with Chris Smith from MagicSmith. He's always very nice. I like his products very much as well.
Mark Mason was his usual jovial self and it was a pleasure seeing him again too.
Of course there were others there as well but I'm a little pressed for time here while writing this review.
HOWEVER, The piece de resistance was attending the lecture of Michael Ammar. It was my first lecture of his and it was worth the wait. He taught many classic effects with twists of his own to make them new and unique. I learned quite a bit during the event. Meeting and talking with him afterwards was a real treat as well. If you still have a chance to attend Michael's Lecture I highly recommend it.
Thanks to Penguin Magic for putting this event together.

I spent the day at the Expo, while I have my thoughts on that, that is a whole other review. Michael Ammar is amazing, plain and simple. He taught such great illusions, and not only did he hand us over some gems he taught us better than live! This was a real treat for me. The only downside was that I couldn't stay for the second half. I can only imagine how much more I would've learned! Highly recommended!

After a day of seeing experts demonstrate magic, you might think that it would be hard for someone to wow the audience. You'd be wrong!

Michael went through quite a few things.

He offered updated handlings on classic things and not only showed the new handling, but explained why he felt that the new handling was necessary.

He showed the inner workings of the topit and how he has also improved that.

And in case you're worried that there wasn't anything new - don't worry, he had new things as well!

If your a fan (I'll admit that I have been for a long time), you won't be disappointed.

And if you're not a fan, you probably will be after this lecture.
