February 25: Tom Dobrowolski's "Tom and His Merry Men or I Want to be a Spanish Magician When I Grow Up!"
Our own Tom Dobrowolski is pleased to present "his" all new lecture:
From the lecture notes:
I REALLY like this lecture. Let me explain that a bit.
When I started putting the lecture together I realized some of my favorite tricks to perform weren’t mine. I contacted my friends who had created those tricks to ask if I could include them in my lecture. They all not only graciously and without reservation agreed to let me use those tricks but every one of them asked if there was anything else of theirs I wanted to include. I couldn't believe it! Not being greedy I just used the tricks I asked about. All of these are currently unpublished routines. The Jack Carpenter trick will be appearing on a DVD Jack recently filmed to be released through Paper Crane Magic but it is appearing for the first time in print right here. Because of their generosity this lecture is a whole LOT better than it would have been!
So if you like the lecture thank Jeremiah, Ed Oschmann, John Carey, Jack Carpenter and “Uncle” Curtis Kam. If you don’t blame me as I must have done a really lousy job in presenting their terrific magic!
I REALLY like this lecture!
More importantly I’m pretty sure YOU’LL really like this lecture!
BBQ Ribs Three Coins Across
Here is one of my favorite coin routines that my friend Jeremiah can often be found performing. It is a simple handling of the 3 Fly/Visible Coins across which maximizes each magical moment by reducing the number of coins in the hands during each phase.
The Contest: Poker Players Picnic REDUX
Ed Oschmann/Tom Dobrowolski
This handling of the classic lazy man’s ace trick makes the routine actually fun! You will use this....a LOT!
Poor Old Uncle Joe
The ever generous and industrious Jack Carpenter has graciously allowed me to share this simple and fun laymen pleaser.
My good friend John Carey so generously allowed me to share this prediction effect which I ABSOLUTELY love performing.
Right Down the Street
This is my handling of the Out of This World plot inspired by the genius Dani DaOrtiz...it's your life....
Hana Ho Card
"Hana Ho" means "Do it Again!" in Hawaiian. And Hawaii magician Curtis Kam uses this simplified moving hole effect to answer that call, it's a quick encore to any effect using a signed card that transforms that card into something just a little more special for the lucky person who gets to keep it.
Plus a couple of extras. (Yes John I am going to include my ACAAN)
If you can bring a deck of cards, 3 coins and a matching shell and a hole punch and we can work through these together. Come on out. This is going to be fun!
