Bill Cook Lecture February 27, 2012

Bill Is Back - With a new name and a new lecture!
Hot off his appearance at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, all the screening of Make Believe around the country and his recent college graduation, Bill will be taking his experiences competing and performing to bring a fresh spin to something all magicians yearn for: how to be creative.


Please join us as Bill will be giving his new lecture on “Creativity and Adaptation."


Bill Cook is one of the most talented young magicians I have ever seen. Besides being a flawless magician, he is a great entertainer! Personality, originality, creativity; add them up and you have Bill Cook!
Master Magician Lance Burton

Bill Cook is the Future of Magic.  A three-time winner of the Lance Burton award of excellence, Bill is recognized as a national and international competition magician.  Having just won Second in the World for his Stage Manipulation Act at the World Magic Seminar International Competition, Bill won First Place and the People’s Choice award at the prestigious Chicago Magic Competition.  Bill was not only the first person to win both awards, he was the youngest competitor.

Bill is one of Six featured Stars in the Brand-New Award-Winning Documentary entitled Make Believe. Winner of the Best Documentary award at the LA Film Festival, and the Audience Choice award at the Austin Film Festival, Make Believe follows six teen magicians as they Battle for the title of World Teen Champion.

Bill's talents include a wide variety of magic, ranging from intimate close-up magic and  walk-around magic, to stage performances.

For Bill, magic is not just a career, but a way of life. He is a believer that magic is a way to connect to people. Magic breaks all language barriers. Bill believes that magic can be incorporated into almost any aspect of a person’s life, because magic is all around us.

And of course, the motto that Bill lives by:

“For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. For those who do not, 
none will suffice.” - Dunninger
