Penguin Live Lecture :: Mark Leveridge
Mark Leveridge is a magician, author, creator, dealer, and publisher who is extremely creative and really knows (from years of experience) what works.
When he comes here to Penguin Live, he’ll present a lecture entitled “The Five Aspects Of Close Up” in which he will talk about…
five typical situations where close-up magic is used to entertain. These include: Walkaround (where all audience members are standing, like a cocktail party)
table hopping (moving from one large dinner table to another, like a banquet), restaurants (entertaining at small tables for friends or families),
formal close-up show (prepared pieces magic on a close-up pad), and trade-shows (where you attract a crowd and use close-up to promote a company).
For each of the five situations, Mark will talk about what’s required and perform and explain many suitable effects including:
His neat and effective combination of the Submarine Card and Oil And Water, and a killer coin routine for walkaround with a stunning finish.
He also has a clever re-working of the Parade Of The Kings card prediction effect that is smooth and convincing.
And he’ll show you his Mindreading Teddy, which is a great example of how you can take a random object and devise a memorable routine around it.
Plus, he’ll teach you an up-in-the-hands, commercial color-changing deck routine which is fast and to the point, and many more routines.
