Montreal: David Stone Lecture

From the Montreal Magic Jam:
Monday April 22nd

[Note that this lecture will be in French, but David will do explanations in English as necessary]

After the amazing success of The Xperience Lecture tour in 2012 with over 183 lectures in 19 countries, the crazy David Stone is back!

This new lecture will provide exclusively strong magic tricks with cards, coins, and varied objects for close-up conditions just as pen, bottles, glasses…

For those who already know David, no need to say the lecture will be a real show with dozens of gags and ideas you will use for your own performances. Among the brand new tricks you will discover :
  •     Mirage : Learn how to Visually and slowly make a deck of cards vanish !
  •     Zenith : The « Card on the ceiling » effect completely revisited, safer and easier than the classic version. Finally you will get David secret version of this classic effect, a version he kept for his own performances for years. A masterpiece of close up magic !
  •     A new gimmick as powerful as «The Tool » that will allow you to perform dozen of tricks completely different. A new weapon for the close up magician who want to refresh his repertoire.

And much more ! Over 14 new effects and routines tested on real audience and ready to amaze your own spectators. David will also talk and explain how he performs in close up situation on stage for audience as large as 2.000 spectators and how to deal with this kind of situations.

This information will be useful to magicians of all skill levels, so we are offering it at a very low price.

Toronto: Greg Wilson lecture - "Things I carry and use..."

From the Browser's Den of Magic:
Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Please Pay at the Door $20 (Standing Room Only)

From the man who brought us such gems as Pointless, Bandwidth, Revolution, Cold Case, Unleashed, Hundy 500 and so much more, Greg Wilson is bringing his brand-new lecture to the Browser's Den! He's a two-time FISM winner, he had an entire chapter dedicated to his magic in Paul Harris' ART OF ASTONISHMENT books, and now he's coming to share his decades of knowledge with you!

Just like the title, Greg's lecture will use things that fit in his pockets and things found around him, teaching you to be ever-ready for performing spur-of-the-moment astonishments.

Building on his best-selling videos “Off the Cuff” and “On the Spot”, Greg teaches you how to convert everyday objects into devastating weapons of deception. The emphasis here is on ENTERTAINMENT. From close-up to stand-up, there’s something for everyone.

Now just because it’s called a lecture doesn’t mean it has to be dry and academic. You will experience a rip-roaring, laugh-out-loud, audience-involving show! Greg will not only fool you, he'll have you laughing and clapping along the way!

This is one lecture you DO NOT WANT TO MISS!

Please Pay at the Door $20 (Standing Room Only)

Toronto: Ryan Murray lecture

From the Browser's Den of Magic newsletter:
Sunday, February 10

Ryan Murray's new book 'Curious Weaving' has been completed (proofread by Jeff Hinchliffe). It is a book on one of the most talked about of all shuffles in 'magic' the Faro Shuffle.

The Faro Shuffle is a technique used by most of the top professional card handlers in the world.  However, it is a technique that requires study and effort. For those who enjoy memorized deck work the Faro shuffle is a valuable weapon.

Ryan will be covering different methods so that there is something of value for all skill levels including:  IN-HANDS FARO (Technique & Fixing Mistakes); PROPERTIES (Cycling Order, Straddle Faro; Controlling a Card to Any Position); TABLED FARO (Breakdown of Techniques, Checking for Mistakes, Controlling In or Out, Combining with Riffle Shuffle); DOUBLE FARO.

And he will be performing some effects from his new book.
