From the Browser's Den of Magic:
Sunday, October 21, 2018

My goodness we are excited to announce that Chris Philpott will be giving a rare lecture here at our shop!

He is the inventor of many very popular magic effects you have seen on so many shows. Including: The 100th Monkey; Babel; Pantheon; Spellcaster; French Postcards; Tossed Out Book Test.

Mr. Philpott has created and scripted magic for: Derren Brown, Justin Willman, Cyril Takayama, Steve Valentine,Aiden Sinclair and two of America's Got Talent finalists, David Leeman & The Clairvoyants).

The performance of his 100th Monkey on AGT received a standing ovation and over 13 million YouTube views.

When Dan Harlan was asked "On the topic of Penguin lectures, what's been your most memorable moment" he replied " Chris Philpott...He brought the most dramatic presentations, things where you really cared about what was going on...Just so well thought. So smart"

But there is much more to Chris then a creator of magic. Chris Philpott is an award-winning screenwriter and director who lives and works in L.A. He has written and directed three feature films.

Toronto: Al Grose - Off The Table

From the Browser's Den of Magic:
Date: Sunday, October 14, 2018
Time: 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Location: Browser's Den of Magic, 3220 Dufferin St. Unit 19 A.
Cost to AttendAny $ Amount Donation for Oscar Munoz's Son Fund
Please read this special Note from Al Grose:
Dear Magical Friends,
For those who don’t know me my name is Al Grose.  I am not famous, nor am I wealthy.  I am a Magician who loves performing, creating, and sharing magic.  Anyone who has ever met me knows all I ever want to do is share magic.  I’m ironic. I’m the magician who wants to share his secrets. 
I have conducted a number of workshops for Browser’s Den. I have never asked for a penny to conduct them. I do them for the love of magic, and the friendships that incur as a result of the time spent with magical friends. 
On October 14th 2018, I am inviting you to come join me for a workshop called “Off the Table.” The reason I call my presentations workshops as opposed to lectures is because not all the material is mine, and as such I will not claim originality to all the effects. The theme in all of them is you will not require a table nor a close up mat for any of the effects.  I don’t sell lecture notes nor DVD’s.  Not because I can’t, but rather because I’m too lazy :) to make them.  That being said, feel free to write, photograph and/or tape any segment you’d like to hopefully use.  I will cover coins, cards, rubber bands and a little mind reading.  I’d also like to share some presentations of items no doubt you already own, but never thought of using in front of an audience.  And if there’s any move or sleight you’ve been wondering about, please yell it out so we can all improve.
This particular workshop is a little different. I will be asking a fee for this one. How much you pay, you decide. You see, I’m not keeping the money.  Not a penny.  I’m asking you to open your hearts to help a friend of mine.  And I’m sure he’s a friend of yours too; the incredible Oscar Munoz. Oscar’s son Benjamin narrowly escaped an Apartment Fire in his hometown of San Marcos Texas. Oscar is trying to raise $50 000.00 to cover surgery costs for Ben. 
I don’t believe I need to say more. If Oscar has ever made you smile, laugh or be amazed return the feeling to him and help in any way you can.

Toronto: James Alan lecture

From the Browser's Den of Magic:
Sunday, September 23, 2018

Dear Magic Friends,

Being in Toronto we are incredibly fortunate to have so many extremely talented magicians. One such talented fellow is a one Mr. James Alan. From organizing shows and lectures to putting on his own performances, he has his paws in just about every magic cookie jar in town, and he is coming to lecture here at the shop.

He is one of the recipients of the Len Cooper Memorial Award — a special award we give out here at the shop to a young magician in memory of the original owner. He also gave a spectacular performance at the Bash this year. For a number of years he hosted Magic Tonight where he shared the stage with dozens of magicians. Now, for the past two years here in Toronto he has had is own show Magic & Martini which is often sold out weeks in advance.
