“Andi has that unique ability to create original hard-hitting effects that use very few sleights. I'm not just a friend, I'm a fan!” - John Archer

"Andi offers a hugely entertaining lecture filled with original thinking and fun!" - Luke Jermay

"Andi combines flawless sleight of hand with clever construction and intriguing presentations to create material that you will definitely want to add to your repertoire." - Joshua Jay

"I don’t think it’s overstating the case to say that Andi Gladwin is one of the most knowledgeable people in magic. He knows all about the magic industry, the history of magic andits future. He knows how to write bestselling books. Dozens of them! He knows how to get onto prime-time TV. He knows how to win awards. And most importantly, he knows how to fool both laymen and magicians with ease. Don’t be misled by his relaxed, easy-going style though - his sleight-of-hand is world class and his methods are devious! This lecture will be an absolute treat." - Mark Elsdon

What will he teach?

The lecture is in two parts, featuring Andi's 25 minute stand-up routine and a full card magic set that builds to an exciting, and unexpected crescendo.

In the parlour section, you'll learn routines such as Modern Crime; Andi's adaption of Jack Wise's wonderful "Heist" routine (in turn, a version of the classic "Holdup" trick), his Rubik's Cube routine (taught for the first time ever) and his full "People Power" routine which fills an entire stage with the smallest of props.

In the close-up set, you'll see Andi at his best. He will teach you an original previously unpublished Multiple Selection routine, a brand new version of one of Andi's most requested tricks and his "Cut, Shuffle, Deal" a novel version of Spectator Cuts to the Aces that turns the plot completely on its head.

This lecture is tightly packed with enough practical, amazing tricks that you could build your own close-up and parlour set around it.

Who is he?

Perhaps Andi Gladwin’s greatest trick is how he divides his time between being a professional close-up magician, magic creator, author, lecturer and more.

His Master Pushoff and Multiple Revelation Project DVDs were best sellers and received rave reviews in all major magic journals. His “Magic Squared” effect is a true show stopper and his books 52 Memories and Blomberg Laboratories are both amongst the biggest selling magic books of the last decade.

Andi has lectured at the biggest conventions in the world including The Session, Blackpool, FISM, Magi-Fest, MAGIC Live, The Genii Convention and many more. In this special Penguin lecture he will present never seen before material from his professional parlour show. You'll learn everything from his opener to his closer.

What makes all this material interesting is that it plays for big crowds, yet uses only the most basic sleight of hand. Two of the tricks are entirely self-working, whereas all the others are extremely easy, using only a simple sleight here and there.

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

Magicians flock to see workers give talks. Why? Because these guys see and learn things that you won't find in any book or video. Yes, you'll be learning some incredibly powerful A-material, but the INVALUABLE stuff will be the insight you learn along the way.

Andi's set today focused on "easy" effects, not quite self working but very approachable even for an "up and coming" (e.g. relative beginner) like me. But do not be turned off that the effects are easy to figure out, many are real foolers with huge audience impact. Great lecture, 5 stars!!

I wanted to jump on here and post my thoughts about this lecture.

First, BUY IT NOW!
If you are looking for well thought out easy to do performance magic that will make you look like a pro then this lecture is for you.

The way Andi thinks about his performances is the type of thinking that will get you booked in this industry. It's entertaining, memorable and all of the weak spots have been removed over the course of many performances. This is truly A+ material from one of the real world workers out there.

There are two pieces from this that are going directly into my stand up shows. Both of these are worth the price of the lecture. All of the material is solid but two of them in particular fit my style and persona perfectly.

I really can't recommend this lecture enough. Andi teaches in an easy to understand and fast paced manner that is a breath of fresh air to watch. So many lectures can drag on and on but he is direct and to the point without skipping over any of the important details that make these effects true performance pieces.

Thanks to Andi and the crew at Penguin for putting together what in my mind is one of the best lectures to ever come out of this platform.

Much respect and gratitude to Andi for this!

This is not a good lecture, the effects shown are just not worth the price. He show a good control and a false cut.
