WHAT THE GREATEST ARE SAYING…





BILL MALONE

David Williamson is a hilarious, entertaining and one-of-a-kind performer!

Not only my favorite magician to watch but his ideas, teaching abilities and skill level are just as amazing!



An investment in magic you can't afford to pass up!





TOM Mullica

I think it's RIDICULOUS that this material is available for the fraternity. It's RIDICULOUS how talented David is, it's also RIDICULOUS that he's willing to share this treasure of material with his friends in magic. David Williamson is very serious with his comedy and we all love him for his dedication to the art.



2. Where are the Duke Sterns, Karrell Foxes and Jay Marshalls of today... they all live in the fertile creative mind of David Williamson. I am so proud to have him as a friend, especially knowing I influenced his 'style' of entertainment. We all benefit from the genius of David's talent. Don't miss out on this truly extraordinary gift of sharing.

3. All great comedy magicians are true artists...they have studied for years to find out what works and why. While you're laughing and being entertained by someone 'special' like Dave Williamson, you are being fooled as much as a lay person. What a treat to have David Williamson as one of us.

4. David Williamson is a humble guy, he does what he does because it makes him happy. He doesn't care about being famous, he just wants you to be part of his world of laughter. If he wasn't a magician, he'd be a jazz musician because he can jam with the best. RIDICULOUS is exactly how he works but LIKE ABILITY is why he's so successful!

5. David Williamson SUCKS!



DEREK DELGAUDIO

David Williamson is an utter failure. He has spent his entire life trying to convince others that he’s not a genius. He's not fooling anyone.

This will be a great set of dvds to own as David Williamson is fantastic.

BUT I think all of the routines are on other dvds that he has had out & I have them ALL.

However,he is a one of a kind perfomer so will most likely take the plunge.

I was hoping to see some of his take on family shows. It seems most of that material was on the penguin lecture. But I'm sure this will be great, he is an awesome performer.

Well, needle routine and his card to mouth are unpublished as far as I know. Needle routine could be worth of the set from what I have seen and considering how high some versions sell. But I do agree that it would have been great to see his cruise ship show he talks about in penguin lecture.

David Williamson is a living legend of magic, enough said.

If only a DVD set or anything in magic you can get this year, this is it. I do not want to put any additional praise to Dave. Just do yourself a favor to get this DVD set.

The time spent with him simply gave me some of the most important lesson not only magic, being a person as well. Funny moments like we watched formula car race at the hair pin corner as he mentioned in Penguin Live, plus doing card tricks for TV outdoors with snow...

Dave changed my life entirely. Then I moved forward. Although I am a great admirer and believer in Spanish School, I am sure that Dave's lessons have the same quality and importance in my mind forever. Both made me understand what is good magic, close up magic & card magic in particular, along with other giants' shoulder stood under.

Thanks Dave.

This is a must, must buy for every serious magician.

This set is not about the tricks. Imo, the biggest lesson you can learn from David, is that its all about you as a performer. The tricks comes second

I think David changes everyones life who sees him because he is so funny, amazing, likeable, skillfull and a joy to see. |He is a master entertainer and that is what master entertainers(singers, actors, comedians)do. Anyone seeing him lecture or watching any of his many dvd releases experiences this.

However, to say that David teaches us how to be a person is a really funny statement. I think he will laugh if he reads the post. All of us know how to be a person as we have been one all of our lives.

I am a mega Williamson fan but would like to know what new effects are on the DVDS.

Magic is all about presenting YOU , and David is an absolute master at that. Taking effects that presents him the best.

That is what hat we all could learn from

People might be mistaking "person" as being themselves when actually the word is being referred to as "character".
person- a character or part in or as if in a play

Another word that could be used is guise;
: one of several or many different ways in which something is seen, experienced, or produced
: a way of seeming or looking that is not true or real
One of my rules is never explain. A writer is a lot like a magician, if you explain how the trick works then a lot of the magic turns mundane. -Laurell K. Hamilton

When a magician lets you notice something on your own, his lie becomes impenetrable.
