One Man Circus Sideshow by Dave Arch

Here is a manuscript obviously born out of Dave Arch's fascination with the Circus Sideshow genre. He has collected twenty sideshow attractions that he has presented from pure bluff to minimum skill, commissioned an artist to create a poster for each act and assembled it all into a 30 page manuscript. The attractions in this manuscript can be performed in a stand alone show by itself or inserted into your current show as an example of a bygone era when P.T. Barnum ruled the entertainment world.

Magic That Matures by Dave Arch

When I attend a magic convention, I enjoy the dealer's show very much. It sends me hurrying to the dealer room to see up-close what I just witnessed. After all, maybe it's something I should add to my show?

I also enjoy all that magic did for me as a child and the contribution it has made to my life as an adult. Magic put me in front of people, increased my confidence, built creativity, encouraged my ability to read and comprehend oftentimes cryptic directions, expanded my memory and many more skills that I still leverage in my career today.

So ... I began to design a show that I would...

Zingo Bingo by Dave Arch

With thanks to Leo Behnke for the initial concept from his book Corporate Presentations and his permission to share it here, this has proven itself an energy producing closer for many of my corporate shows over the past twenty-five years.

The magician proposes a fun game of Bingo to close his program, and Bingo cards are distributed to everyone in the audience. As the magician hosts the game - drawing and calling the numbers, audience members begin to cross out squares on their Bingo sheets with each person crossing out different squares from those around them. Due to the fact that there are sixteen completely different...

Poor Man's EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) by Dave Arch

Finally a cost-effective method for establishing ambiance in the candlelit seance room by recording the proceedings and having them unexpectedly interrupted by a series of unintelligible guttural sounds.

Finally a routine that doesn't break the flow of the seance routine while the medium and the sitters make sense of the fully customizable sounds.

Based on an idea from Bob Cassidy, this video tutorial finally visually demonstrates step-by-step how to leverage the power of a free user-friendly laptop app (Windows/Mac Os/Unix) to achieve the above and more.

Scientific Cold Reading 1 by Dave Arch

As an executive coach in Nebraska's largest privately held company, my day is spent in back-to-back one-on-one sessions with managers. Although I would never call it cold reading (at least not out loud in a corporate environment), I consistently use the principles of cold reading to help a client get comfortable in opening up to me as we work together on their professional development.

This first in a series of scientific cold reading documents and videos explains the scientifically accepted and proven model I've used for decades to accelerate the process of getting to know someone and grow...

Magic Tricks For The Visually Impaired Part 1 by Dave Arch

Ever wished you could gain some media coverage for your magic shows while making a substantial contribution to others' lives? Consider teaching magic tricks to the blind. No doubt there's an organization in your area that already serves as a hub for services to the visually impaired.
