"Eric Jones does some of the cleanest, smoothest, and most artful magic I've ever seen. And if that wasn't enough, his magic also happens to be totally mystifying!" Ken Weber, Author of Maximum Entertainment

"Eric's hands do things that our minds can't understand. If he's teaching, I'm watching!!" Larry Wilmore, Writer, Comedian, Host of The Nightly Show

"Eric Jones magic is always a delight to see. I love his pace, his style, his powerful tricks, and his great charisma. Eric is a great magician and an unique performer!" Woody Aragon

Who is he?

Regarded by his peers as one of Magic's Rising Stars, Eric Hones has made quite a name for himself in the world of close-up magic. Armed with cunning sleight of hand and a charming personality, he will astound you with his digital dexterity. He creates intimate miracles for you and your guests, with the magic quite often taking place in your hands. When Eric performs, cards fly, coins multiply, and audiences cheer.

An award winning performer, Eric's magic has been showcased at the World Famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California, and NYC's Monday Night Magic, the longest running show in New York. As an author, creator, and lecturer, Eric fits sharing some of his pet tricks with countless magicians across the country, including the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas, Nevada, into his busy schedule. Eric's corporate clientele constantly call back for repeat bookings.

What will he teach?

This lecture includes:

Surrogate -- One of Eric’s favorite openers. A color changing deck you have to see to believe!

Flash Coins Relit - This is staple in Eric’s strolling repertoire. Coins appear and vanish at your fingertips, at your command.

A discussion on Coins Across in Three Acts:


1. Peregrination -- A workhorse coins across routine that Eric performs EVERY SINGLE DAY!

2. Speed Fly -- A warm up exercise Eric uses to warm up his hands to prepare for shows. Imagine a 3-Fly routine with NO EXTRA Coins, and NO GIMMICKED COINS!

3. Impossible Coins Across -- The real work on the routine that fooled Penn and Teller on National Television. Coins appear and vanish in THE SPECTATORS' HANDS in the most impossible ways.

Eye Candy -- Eric’s handling of a traditional sponge ball routine is chock full of audience management to keep you one step ahead at all times.

And...
Spectatorial Triangulation -- a discussion on an essay Eric wrote for his upcoming 2017 lecture notes designed to allow the performer to gauge if angle-sensitive material will work in a specific environment and how to make that material play in less than favorable conditions, with just a simple statement.

If you could ask ONE question to one of the world's most creative professional magicians, what would it be?

Lecture was good, i will use to one card trick, but the rest of the entire lecture of coin magic, you will have to go buy special gimmick coins, he uses to perform everything he teaches !! I use very little gimmick coin, so I will not be going out and spending a lot of money to learn his stuff. For me, not worth the $30

Eric Jones Penguin Lecture Review Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2017
Eric Jones is one of the most prominent coin magicians in the planet, but in this particular lecture, he showcases more than just coins. He showcases his philosophy, his approaches, and even creative process. This lecture is one of the best lectures that I have observed in the past months. From the format to the effects, to the audience, to even the host, this was one of the finest lectures I have had the pleasure of viewing.

I, honestly, had been searching for Eric Jone's material for months now, and I am glad that 3 of which were in the lecture. Peregrination, Speedfly and Impossible Coin Across. These three effects alone is well worth the lecture. Eric Jones explains each effect thoroughly and even offers insights and additional subtleties in each, which I greatly appreciate. I don't really mind that Impossible Coin Across was the effect that fooled Penn and Teller. It was heavily emphasized as such. All I saw was an elegant construction of moves and strategic timings that make use of gimmicks. Eric proves that once you have played with a toy long enough, and studied its features hard enough, you are able to use that knowledge to manipulate even the spectator's perception of them. It's kinda confusing, but view the lecture and it will make perfect sense. His selection of effects in this lecture was good. He has an organized set of effects to present and explain, and he tackles each with precision. He, however, has the tendency to go overboard with the explanations and starts branching alternatives from one effect to another. This is not necessarily a bad thing because the audience can get more than what they expected to get.

I am not sure about the time constraints for this lecture, because, I downloaded the lecture, and Speedfy performance was cut from the first phase directly into the last phase.I would like to have seen the full performance of that effect. Other magicians might only care about the method and explanations, but there are a few who would like to study an unedited performance.

The format is pretty direct and smooth. The first part of the lecture were the effects, and the second part was an interview with Dan Harlan. It was pretty clean in execution and it felt very professional and organized. I would love to attend an actual lecture just because the organization was flawless. I really loved how the flow of the lecture went.

I also appreciate the audience for this particular lecture. The audience was a mix of veteran magicians and younger generations, and I think I stopped a couple of females as well. More importantly, each magician interaction with the audience was very beneficial for any student. This is an example of a very intelligent audience. They had asked all the right hard hitting questions in this lecture. They would ask things overlooked or needed clarification. They would explore steps and concept thoroughly urging Eric to explain further. They would ask these questions with novices in mind, or even with a veteran in mind. I love these kinds of audience in magic lectures. They allow for so much input for those who could not attend it personally.

I would like to also address "dead time" in the lecture. I would like to stress that there is minimal dead time, and what dead time was present, either Dan Harlan, or Eric Jones managed it. There are times wherein nothing happened, but Eric and Dan gave some input to help fill in those times strategically. I appreciate that compared to lectures wherein the magician, host or even the audience are shown in the camera with their eyes open waiting for something to happen. For me, that is not appropriate for a downloaded version. Eric is not seen pulling out his props from his bag, or scanning a laptop. He had things prepared, which saves time, and whatever further preparations he needed was edited away.

I would also like to address the host, Dan Harlan. I had been following some of his work, and he has a sort of vibe that when he talks, you listen. And he has the ability to communicate that makes you understand clearly what he means. His trailer in youtube was well done, and I never felt bored listening to him talk for 5 minutes straight about Eric's lecture. And he has done a great job in hosting it as well. He is less a nuisance to the lecture, but more of professional handling a professional event. When he comments on something Eric presented, it all has sense and direct to the point. He has a good mix of humor and no nonsense in his traits as a host. He even makes sure that not one second is wasted. On instances that the microphone was passed around, he would ask Eric a question to fill the time. This I greatly appreciate in him as a host. I pray that he will be the host for every lecture that comes out in Penguin Magic, because he adds direction, urgency, and organization to a lecture.

What I didn't like about his hosting was during the interview section. He has the tendency to talk for the interviewee about him rather than let the interviewee explain it himself. There are several times in the lecture that Dan would explain a funny story about Eric, and I was like, why is he telling that? It would be better for Eric to recount that story to us himself. Then another issue was at some moments, he would overlap Eric's answer to one of his questions. What I mean by this is that when Eric would answer a question, Dan would talk at the same time as him. This is not only distracting to the viewers but also quite annoying that we could not get to listen to his full answer. His tendency to interrupt was present in this lecture.

But aside from these minor tendencies, and flaws, this was one of the greatest and well worth lectures in Penguin Magic. Because of the quality, organization, and relevance of this lecture, I am considering purchasing another one very soon. I don't care if you are a coin man, card guy or a generalist. There is something in this lecture you can always find helpful. Inspiration and enlightenment can be found in each relevant frame.

I want to try coin magic now! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 1st, 2017
Wow, what a lecture! I've never really been keen on coin effects until I saw Eric Jones on Fool Us. And after watching this lecture, and seeing how magical such routines can be, I am definitely adding some coin effects to my repertoire.

His teaching is detailed, and his philosophy on magic ("magic is bigger than one's self") is after my own heart. One of my favorite lectures so far, to be sure!

What Coin Magic is Supposed to Look Like Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 30th, 2017
If it's something you're interested in learning and performing, Eric Jones's 'Impossible Coins Across' routine is alone worth the cost of the lecture. The most magical looking coin routine I have ever seen.

Outstanding coin demo Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 11th, 2017
Eric Jones has accustomed us to remarkable coin and card routines. On this lecture he has specially gathered 3 routines of coin across with different levels of technical difficulty. However each movement is so cleverly explained that anybody involved in coin magic could harvest plenty of ways to improve their own tricks. Nobody could be disappointed in buying such an outstanding lecture.

Eric does an excellent job of explaining the routines. Even better, he explains the "why" of what he does. Eric can never be accused of not thinking enough.

In my opinion, Eric is the successor to David Roth.

GREAT Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 15th, 2017
i've seen a lot of penguin live lectures, and this one is at the very top of my list, right alongside williamson and the likes of it. he shows several great, working coin effects that really get you going, are not that hard to perform, and once you've put in the work it needs and deserves, you can really perform and are very commercial pieces.
but i think the best part is when he sits with dan and tells his truly inspiring stories.
overall, great lecture from a great magician and person
