lecture – working on the fly


Working on the fly is a lecture that is not full of ground breaking, knuckle busting magic tricks you will practice alone in your bed room. It is however full of simple, practical working material, sprinkled with advice that the professionals often keep to themselves. The lecture consists of tricks that have served me really well over the past few years.


Hypnotic trance: a powerhouse of a card trick hitting so hard they will feel like they have been in the ring with Mike Tyson
Birthday trick: a special way to honour a birthday person.
Card in sharpie: a throw away routine that everyone is talking about.
Sponge balls: an all killer no filler sponge ball routine.

Also during the lecture Steven will also cover such subjects as:-

How to approach a group- the correct way to approach a group and never be rejected.
What wrestling can teach magicians – combining 2 geeky concepts to improve your magic.
Working on the fly – The Real meaning of the title.
Bits of business – what you SHOULD do minus the tricks.
