Patrick Redford Lecture

I thought I already posted this, but I guess I was mistaken. At any rate, Patrick Redford came to Indianapolis a couple of months ago. He put on a great lecture and stuck around afterward to share some cool stuff. I’m a big fan of Patrick’s thinking in both magic and mentalism. I highly recommend that you check out his …

2011 Lecture Tour- Baltimore, MD

Baltimore was the final stop of the tour where I lectured at the Denny and Lee Magic Studio. The shop is stocked with hundreds of books, DVDs, and tricks. It even has a pet pig… I’m not kidding.

Marc actually lives in King of Prussia, PA (a suburb of Philly), …

I immediately added his “Final Cap in Bottle” to …

He’s really done his homework when it comes to …
