Entertain your talk with magic
This lecture is in demand
During election years, this lecture is even more important, as it hammers home the idea that audiences need to do more than simply see, they need to comprehend what they are seeing.
Larsen originally presented this lecture to bar associations, law and judicial groups, political organizations, etc. He soon discovered that the appeal of his talk was general in nature, making it well-received by any adult group. After performing it more than 200 times, he agreed to print his lecture, including patter and choice of effects, and offer it to the magic fraternity at large. Everything needed should fit into an average briefcase.
This revised edition provides complete directions and patter for Tom Bowyer's Repeat Bill Trick. Also includes directions for constructing Eddie Clever's Hallucination effect, as well as patter and assembly instructions for the Chicago Magic Co. Improved Afghan Bands trick.
PDF format. Updated and enhanced edition of the 1946 Thayer printing. Now includes four added chapters and sixteen illustrations left out of the original edition. Edited by B. W. McCarron (author of The Gambling Magician). Every word has been set in crystal clear, digital type. 46 pages. ($12 US)
