  • Colin Mcleod LIVE

    “One of the greatest thought readers of our time.” -Uri Geller

    “How the bloody hell did you do that?” -Simon Cowell

    “There’s a very short list of creators/performers in the magic community that I will sit up and pay close attention to when they speak. Sometimes they speak through their commercial releases and if I’m lucky enough to be their friends, I get to hear from them directly! Colin Mcleod is at the top of that list. If you get the chance to hear, see or read anything from Colin you WILL walk away with a fresh innovative perspective. I guarantee it.” -Bill Abbott

    “One of the most brilliant and creative thinkers in mentalism alive today. His mind should be bronzed and worshiped by any mentalist seeking guidance.” -Marc Salem

    “Colin McLeod has interesting, creative and fun ideas about what mentalism can be, where it can go and how it should be presented. He devises powerful, head-scratching mysteries that take the entertainment value all the way up to 11, all of which he performs well and explains clearly without taking forever to do so. If there’s something else to want from a mentalism lecture, I don’t know what it is. Colin has a terrible haircut and an accent no-one can understand, but apart from that both he and his lectures are a treat. Watch, enjoy, learn and prepare to be fooled in the nicest possible way by a mind so sharp you could slice rocks with it.” –Ian Rowland

  • Brent Braun – Penguin Live Lecture

    The effects he has chosen to present are quite visual and startling. The ball through glass is surprising and clean in appearance. The card effects are well thought out and incorporate effective climaxes. Mr. Braun does a great job explaining the effects, and the methods are well within the reach of anyone with basic grounding in sleight of hand with cards.” – M.U.M. Magazine

    Brent Braun has been a professional performer for over a decade, Brent creates exceptionally visual magic that is both pure and entertaining.

    During his years as a magic dealer, he came to understand that many of the effects released into the market today are “pipe dreams”, and are deceptively advertised. Due to this realization, Brent has a firm commitment to only release effects that he has tested and used in the real world, in “under fire” situations.

Many of his original optical illusions and special effects techniques have been featured in theme parks, The Smithsonian Institute, Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry and hundreds of trade shows, including the White House Conference on “The Industrial World Ahead Congress.”

    In 1999, he was awarded one of the highest honors in the magician community, a Masters Fellowship with the Academy of Magical Arts.

    Paul Vigil:
    Paul is known as one of the most discriminating magicians / mentalist in the world.
    He has been practicing the art of magic since the age of 5, and 10 years later Paul under took the challenge of becoming a professional performer. Within a further year Paul had become one of the most in demand performers in his native Salt Lake City.
    The center of magic, Las Vegas, soon called for Paul to join the ranks of the industries leaders and in 2002 Paul moved to Las Vegas, soon to establish himself as one of the finest performers the city has to offer.

    Following a few decades of creating and performing a combination of magic, mentalism, and Haunted Magick, Rick began releasing material such as “Haunted Magick” and “Deceptions” to the magic community through Deceptions Unlimited, which he owns along with his wife Tammy. Rick released his first full-size book in 2000 entitled “The Book Of Haunted Magick”, which has sold in over 30 countries.

  • Lee Earle – Penguin Live Act

    Depending upon your point of view, Lee Earle is either Mentalism’s Johnny Appleseed, Pied Piper or Don Quixote. Lee refuses to applaud mediocrity. He rails at it. In his earlier magical incarnation, he convinced the Arizona driver licensing authorities that his middle name was the “Five of Spades” so that he could include it on his license and use it for card revelations. Lee has the temerity to comment on the magic condition without apology. To some, Lee reminds of a red-headed Max Maven or a beardless Eugene Burger. Each would be offended by the comparisons.

    Intelligent, quick of wit and facile of tongue, Lee preaches his gospel of the moment to anyone within earshot. His distinctive Woody Woodpecker laugh and crackling voice seldom need amplification. Many throughout the world who have heard Lee’s staccato presentations, delivered with the evangelistic fervor of a recent convert, have traded their magic props for the simpler impedimenta of the seemingly propless mentalist. Others have shaken their heads and returned to the familiar platform comfort of chrome and flock.  But few are untouched in some way by this energetic advocate.
