Chris Mayhew Lecture, At the Table, Video Download
Watch the video trailer, below!
Chris Mayhew is a skillful and very creative magician who focuses substantially on magic with cards, offering both original plots and fresh takes on classics. His performances are also robustly funny sometimes involving broad physical humor and provide a great illustration of how to take strong basic magic and elevate it with a personal and vivid presentational style.
Chris offers several tricks that would be effective in the working repertoire of magicians at widely varying levels. The card magic is clear, impactful, and fun to do, but also is within the ability of intermediate level magicians looking to work on material with accessible sleight of hand. Advanced magicians and working pros will also find worthwhile material.
In particular Chris's take on Anniversary Waltz, performed without gimmicks, is very strong, as is his in-the-hands Triumph Routine. Chris also goes through his touches on the Ambitious Card, and teaches the Lazy Card Rise, in which the card magically rises step by step from the bottom to the top of the deck. Chris also shows an elegant linking safety pin routine in which the pins can be completely examined before and after the trick.
Chris also performs a hilarious rope/invisible deck routine and there is much more!

"Chris is a funny quirky guy. His magic is just as fun and quirky as he is. If you like close up magic with cards and like magic inside jokes than this is a great lecture for you. This has been one of my favorite lectures to date."
