#2 in Comedy Magic hot-list
This was the first magic video Martin Breese released. While it was not the first instructional magic video tape (that honor goes to a 1971 video featuring Dai Vernon
), it was certainly among the very first ones to appear and find relative wide distribution both in the US and UK.
This instructional video is designed specifically for the Cabaret entertainer. An hour long with full explanations of each effect. Terry Seabrooke gives away some of his cherished secrets and more important the reasons why and how. Also includes a pretty clever unpublished mentalism routine by Al Koran. Terry's versions of the Chinese sticks with faucets stuck on the ends is hilarious. Only Seabrooke can come up with such a bit.
