Toronto: John Carney at Bash "6 in The Six"

Browser's Bash logo  
From Jeff Pinsky's Facebook post:
We cannot be more excited to let you know that JOHN CARNEY will be joining us at the 2020 Bash!

Mr. Carney is widely acknowledged by his peers as one of the finest sleight of hand performers in the world! Hollywood's Magic Castle has awarded him more awards than anyone in their history, as well as the Academy of Magic Arts prestigious Performing Masters Fellowship.

For those of you who have had the privilege to see him lecture in the past you know that Mr. Carney's magic...well...it looks like MAGIC! He is the last serious student of Dai Vernon. And in the spirit of Dai Vernon, Mr. Carney hides his skill...that's why his magic looks like magic.

His books, Carney Knowledge, Magic By Design, Carneycopia and The Book of Secrets are considered modern classics in instruction of the art form.

Mr. Carney will be performing at the 2020 Bash (Saturday, April 4) as well as giving a full lecture!

And we are not going to be shy here...His lecture may be the most important lecture on magic you will ever see.

As an Extra Bonus John Carney will be offering a Workshop at Browser's Den of Magic Shop on Sunday April 5, 2020. Details to follow.

Toronto: James Harrison lecture

In case you missed it, here are links to two recent highly viewed videos featuring James:


From The Browser's Den of Magic:
James Harrison Lecture
Saturday, January 11, 2020

Whether you are a hobbyist looking to learn a new skill, or a professional looking for a proven trick, don’t miss this rare opportunity to add pickpocketing to your repertoire!

After 20 years of performing close up, strolling magic, James Harrison has established himself as a pickpocket specialist.  He has shared his knowledge as an author for Street Magic Magazine, as well as at conferences and conventions across North America and Europe. His television show, Behind the Magic, aired on Rogers TV and his recent appearance on Modern Rogue has been trending on YouTube.

James will teach you how to interrupt and entertain any audience with the opening series from his strolling magic repertoire that lets everyone know that he is worth their time!

Tricks and topics include:

Repeat Card to Pen
A great repeat card to impossible location and Why it’s important to have more than just a Sharpie pen.

Wallet Pen
Wow a table with just a coin and pen with this series based off of Rune Klan, David Stone and Harrison’s own ideas.

Necro Tagged
A thought of word book test with a great scary story, still safe for corporate.

Card CollectionA great segue for handing out business cards – it is a card trick without playing cards!

Grift SenseA con man’s prediction of a spectator’s series of choices.

Ring to WatchIf you like Garret Thomas’ Ring Thing, you will love this perfect segue into pickpocketing.

PickPocketingWatch? Wallet? Cell phone? Anything that is not nailed down! How to deal with change in clothing styles. Who to choose, and more importantly, who NOT to choose!

"It's been a pleasure to work with James at one of the largest hackers convention in Vegas. I watched him explain the how to’s of pickpocketing to a packed room, and still steal off them mere moments later. Watch and learn from him now, while you still can, because soon the whole world will be booking him up.”
Brian Brushwood - host of Modern Rogue and Scam Nation

“I will highly recommend James Harrison’s knowledge and skills… an opportunity not to be missed out on” James Brown, Professional Opportunist

We look forward to you joining us on the 11th!

Toronto: Marcus Eddie lecture

From the Browser's Den of Magic:
Wednesday June 26th

We are very excited to offer you another opportunity to learn from a fantastic professional. Marcus Eddie will be here at Browser's Den to share his love of magic on Wednesday, June 26 at 7pm.

Here's a little bit about Marcus:
Growing up overseas as part of an Air Force family, Marcus did not have access to magic shops or clubs. Using a magic set he received as a gift from his parents and the few magic books he could find in the school library, Marcus began teaching himself the craft when he was just 12 years old. Building his illusions from toy boxes, tape and everyday items, Marcus took his childhood passion and turned it into his career.

Today, he is an 8-time award-winning magician, including his win on the Syfy Channel’s magic competition, “Wizard Wars.”marcuseddie

He has appeared on “Penn & Teller Fool Us,” and is the creator of a large catalog of acclaimed, commercially released creations. Marcus also works as a consultant for magicians worldwide, including David Blaine on his television special, “Beyond Magic.”

Marcus Eddie's original magic will leave you stunned, and his lecture will leave you inspired.

We had the pleasure of hosting Marcus a couple years ago and his lecture was fantastic, and we know he's going to bring the goods again! His effects are off-beat and his methods are devious!

We look forward to you joining us on the 26th for what will be another fantastic lecture!
