Sunday, September 3, 12pm-5pm

We will focus on learning how to present the classics in new ways for modern audiences and learn why the following effects have endured throughout the years and have continued to AMAZE audiences:
We will cover many of the following: Ace Productions and Assemblies, Rising Cards, Oil and Water, Wild Card, Card Stabs, Poker & Gambling Demonstrations, Signed Card to Impossible Location, and Innovations for The Classic Story Deck and how to tell YOUR story with a deck of cards… and MUCH more!
We will explore the classic plots of magic and how card magic can be scaled for stand-up and stage venues.
We will also teach you the secrets of playing BIG audiences with a deck of cards. Jeff performed his card manipulation act in front of 6000+ audience members at Radio City Muic Hall in NYC with NO camera support; just 2 hands and a deck of cards. Now he can teach you his innermost secrets of success!
