At the Table Live Lecture - Jason England
On April 2, we change things up with our "At the Table" visit from Jason England. Mr. England is acclaimed the world over for two things: his classical approach to magic's most enduring effects, and his ability to perfectly execute the most challenging cheating moves ever devised. We have worked closely with Jason on an "At the Table" experience that will showcase BOTH the classical magic he is known for, and the cheating techniques that make him the envy of card enthusiasts everywhere. To top it off, Jason will share an unpublished ending for Twisting the Aces by his close friend Derek Delgaudio, as well as a gambling routine that has never been performed or released. As always, we recognize that your time is valuable and you want the MOST magic packed into the evening as possible, without letting it drone on. So we'll aim for two hours with Jason, but we'll go on for as long as he needs to get through this extensive roster of material.
Here is a more detailed outline of this action-packed Live Event:
Three Magic Classics:
Triumph: We have asked Jason to do something unusual here. He is teaching Vernon's Triumph effect EXACTLY as it appears in Stars of Magic, with the singular addition of Daryl's cutting display sequence. Jason believes this to be an absolutely perfect effect - and we agree. Many great effects have been "killed by improvement," and to have a master teach us the true subtleties of the shuffle sequence and reveal is a rare opportunity you won't want to miss.
Twisting the Aces: Another Vernon classic that looks effortlessly perfect in Jason's hands. The routine, many feel, needs a stronger finish, and Jason is teaching (with permission) Derek Delgaudio's finesse at the conclusion of the now-classic Twisting the Aces.
Dunbury's Delusion/Fingerprint Card Trick: This is a workhorse routine that Jason has used faithfully for laymen and magicians for more than twenty years.
Poker Tells: Totally unpublished, Jason has asked that we NOT reveal what this effect is, because it will spoil it for you when you see. But we're VERY excited that he is performing AND tipping this for the first time.
Grand Slam for Bro. John: You teach a spectator how to cheat at Bridge, and then they do!
The Gathering: Four thought-of cards gather into one hand without your spectators revealing anything about their selections
Instant Full House: A full house appears out of nowhere in a head to head game of poker.
And of course, Jason will take YOUR questions in real time, where he will perform requests and offer tips on his unique approach to magic and cheating.
