While some are an endless parade of tricks and their explanations, some are thinly disguised dealer dems and some are virtuoso displays of unattainable sleight of hand, there are occasionally lectures that offer the inside information on performing for real people. Where it's not just the tricks that matter, it's all the little bits and pieces that lie in between the lines that make the difference between 'doing a trick' and 'making magic happen'. Guess which one I'm aiming for here.

The goal is...

Raymonde Crow

California Gang Knives by Raymonde CrowCalifornia Gang Knives, Raymonde Crowe's routine for the color-changing knives, includes two new sleights. The routine includes a comedy presentation, bonus comedy lines, and ends strong when a knife magically shrinks into a miniature knife. At the finale you are automatically reset. California Gang Knives can be performed in short sleeves and jeans.

My aim in this routine was to move beyond repetitive color changes, and over-reliance on the paddle/turnover move, and to conclude the routine strongly. I also wanted to move beyond just describing black and white knives changing places, but...

We have to deal with small stand-up shows, birthday parties, wedding parties, smaller theatres and cabarets, and the like. Naturally, if you want to survive as a performer, you will have to adapt to this situation and develop suitable material. Above all, the material must be direct and to the point, because the European audiences generally don't have too much...

Randy Wakeman

Chicago Bar Magic by Randy WakemanPerformed by Randy Wakeman before random, live audiences . . . then explained and taught in full detail.

Over the 1950s, 1960's, and through the 1970's a brand of bold and direct close-up magic was developed in Chicago, Illinois. These effects were known for simplicity, clarity, and strength of effect, and the powerful response they elicited. Chicago magical legends Don Alan, "Heba Haba Al" Andrucci, "Senator" Clarke Crandall, Frank Everhart, Jack Murray, Johnny Paul, James Patrick Ryan, and Matt Schulien forged their reputations with these effects, and now you can too.

While these quick, direct, simple, baffling effects...
