"Pablo is one of my truly special Students. Over the years he has helped shape and change the way mentalism is viewed and performed." - Kenton Knepper

"I know Pablo personally and, besides being an absolutely marvelous and kind person, he is an incredible originator who never stops thinking." - Richard Osterlind

"I've very much enjoyed watching Pablo Amira develop, in less than a decade, into one of mentalism's most creative and prolific authors. I highly recommend his material. He is a man to be watched. He's also one of the nicest guys in the business." - Bob Cassidy

"Pablo is one of my all time favorite thinkers. He is brilliant." - Neal Scryer

"Pablo Amira's work is always interesting and fresh. His subtle mix of techniques results in interesting premises, methods and effects that are fun and entertaining for any audience. He has a wealth of knowledge spread over a variety of subjects relating to mentalism - Pay close attention if not you'll miss out!" - Peter Turner

"Pablo is a mentalist's gift. Not only a brilliant inventor, innovator, and creative mind, but a sharp business mind in marketing, distributing and promoting. He is a triple or quadruple threat. His miracles are well thought out, usually easy to do ( but like all mentalism- your performance should not be easy) and quite unforgettable. I can't wait for his brilliance to shine on Penguin brothers and sisters. You are in for more than a treat--as I said, he's a threat to rationality." - Marc Salem

"Pablo Amirà is a very prolific author and a busy performer. His works are the perfect combination between simplicity and amazement. He knows how to connect with people giving them experiences that they will never forget. A lecture from Pablo is something not to be missed and he is also a great guy!" - Luca Volpe

"I'm SO excited to hear that Pablo is finally doing a Penguin Live Lecture! This amazing performer not only has a vast array of amazing material that you WILL use, but I know that he will offer the kind of insights and thoughts that only a real mentalist could! I expect that MY working repertoire will have many new additions following this anticipated event, as will yours!" - Dee Christopher

Generally, I am interested in Pablo's stuff and I don't have a problem with effects that are not 100%.

However, this seems thrown together. The finale of two effects fail - not by design - they just go wrong. He doesn't have a proper table yet his pendulum routine is screaming out for it.

The peek in the first effect is very poor at best. Andy Nyman has a much better, and as bold, one in Bulletproof and it may be in his lecture here.

Then the language barrier is also an issue, because whilst Pablo can communicate well in English, when things go belly-up he flounders a little.

Short lecture too.

Maybe I'm missing the nuggets. I don't think I am. Sorry, Pablo.

Let me say this: I think that Pablo Amira us one of most brillant mentalists that i have ever seen and most creative too. But in this lecture he have not showed for us tour best ideas ( instead i admired very more the principe around pendulum , i mean the exposicion about the suggestion's work, and the blindfold Effect). I can advice many Amira's work, but not this. sorry but that.

Clear and clever (and much impromptu) Report this review

Ignore the negative reviews.

Great stuff

I’ve been looking for business card and ESP card effects, and this has a handful of both. They are deceptive with practical methods. One is a two-prediction which is a more believable version of the typical three-prediction one-ahead trick.

What is shown can be be closes up or play big (with one stage exception).

His comments on theory were solid, if not profound.

This was my first Pablo Amira purchase and I got a whole lot from his Penguin lecture. He is an easy going and humble guy who has really thought deeply about how he performs his mentalism (and also why!).

The result is a fresh feeling approach and an easy presentational style. I learned a few nice ideas from the technical side of things which appealed to me. Particularly in his work on the pendulum and some clever p**k work. The biggest value for me however was in his teaching on process and in how we go about learning and developing this art form in our own unique way.

Pablo is very much a unique individual, as are all the greats in our art. In this lecture he unpacks a clear road map with tips and strategies for creating yourself as your own best self. This is something I haven't seen handled as thoroughly in other lectures.

He manages errors and technical glithes effortlessly which is a powerful reminder of how to deal with this stuff when it comes up.

A really worthwhile lecture. I learned tons from it and highly recommend it to any serious student. Thanks Pablo!

One thing apparent from Pablo's work is his minimal approach leaves room to focus on presentation.Partnered with the insight into creativity has helped me to create mentalism with feeling and a mystical aura surrounding the routines the lectures is worth the purchase alone for the theory sections absolutely brilliant

Simply Mental :D Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 20th, 2017
This concept of Minimal Mentalism that Pablo share with us is the product of years of effort and studing of the aspect more escencial of mentalism, simplicity and not only of the effects, but also of the person. I really enjoyed every aspect of the lecture of Pablo Amirá, every detail, every moment of mystery and simplicity. Each one of the effects allows you to focus in the real and profound aspect of what is mentalism, what is the real meaning of our art with a solid foundation in the theorical and practical. If you pay attention, you going to learn a very important thing with this lecture.

I feel very proud of you, my friend!
