Greetings everyone,

On Sunday, October 29th, Deceptions Unlimited will be hosting two special events with Docc Hilford. To begin, Docc will be presenting his new lecture at noon and the cost is $15.00 per person.

Then at 7:30pm, Docc will be performing a very intimate parlor show of mentalism and unusual happenings. Seating for the show is limited to only 30 people, so do not pass this opportunity to see this incredible performance in such a personal setting. The cost for the show is only $20.00 per person.

Book your seats now and get both events for the special price of $30.00.

These events were just announced and both will fill up very quickly, so do not delay. For more information, go here:


We hope to see some of your there.

Keep the change,
Rick & Tammy Maue
Deceptions Unlimited

Docc lectured in Atlanta, GA a few months ago. He's an incredible performer, and his lecture was quite something to see. I'm very jealous that you got him to do a performance!

He had a lot of great stories and was very entertaining, and also taught several routines that I've seen local magicians begin to use. This really is a do-not-miss lecture, even if you just go for entertainment value it's incredibly worth it.

Thought I would share a little bit about the actual lecture... I got this from the dennymagic.com newsletter.. I'll be attending Docc's lecture today here in Baltimore... Can't wait!

He is only booking 20 cities, and then will not be releasing this material
This should be a very powerful lecture.
The lecture:
Docc Hilford’s Entire Act Exposed!
Imagine seeing a professional mentalist’s act and wanting to add one, a few or
all of the effects you saw to your show. You attend his lecture, but he only
explains a few tricks and none of them from his actual act.
Many professionals refuse to perform their “A” material if there are magicians
in the audience; they don’t want their private effects to get out. This is
understandable, but what if a professional mentalist was to give a special
lecture that explained every detail of his entire act, the act he’s presenting
around the world? Would you miss it? Or would you eagerly run as fast as you
could to get the real secrets?
Docc Hilford’s special lecture will teach his complete act! This isn’t an act
that was popular in the past; it’s the act he’s using today. It has been a hit
at private parties and theaters across the U.S., England, Scotland, Brazil, and
the Aladdin Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
In this lecture, nothing will be held back.
You’ll learn:

1. Jaks’ Room ––Combining the effects of The 16 Digit Trick, Koran’s Medallion
and Annemann’s Swami Test into the perfect opening. (Unpublished)

2. The Ultimate Magazine Test –A full routine with no less than EIGHT
climaxes! It’s a theater piece that can stand alone and is guaranteed to
generate publicity. (Unpublished)

3. Smoke Pictures on Glass –A thought is expressed as a beautiful picture in
smoke. (Unpublished)
And much, much more!

4. The Complete Nite Club Act ––A fast-paced, multi-trick, 15 minute act
designed for dance floors in hotel nite clubs.
The effects in this act are so clever, Docc won’t reveal them outside of his
special lecture. The opening test is worth the entire lecture.

5. Buddha Billet Tests –These are the three billet tests Docc uses to sell
his act. The Whispering Buddha, The Wish and Buddha’s Message are pieces that
bring beauty to selling the act. (All unpublished)
You’ll get all the patter, bits of comedy and tips to perform these acts. Most
of the material is unpublished, for the obvious reason that it’s not been
released. The lecture is over 2 hours long!
Why would Docc expose the act he uses? Because over the years the best tips
have come from other magicians. Docc will be going on a world tour of hotels,
theater and nite clubs in several countries in November, December and January.
He wants to learn more about his act, and teaching others is the best way.
This lecture will only be available in the summer/fall of 2006 and will not be
repeated. Only 20 cities will be booked. After that, the act will be secret
again. Don’t miss this one time event!
Attendees will be given special prices for Docc’s NEW DVDs, books or tricks.
These effects WILL NOT BE EXPLAINED when Docc lectures at Mindvention in Las
Vegas in November! This is your only chance.

I saw Docc in Chicago last month. I highly recommend this lecture. If you get a chance, go see it!

It was a very good lect.. and I met Bob Sheets, he was doing some great bill tricks before it started. Skullcracker looked very nice.. And, yeah, it cracked my skull. I had a major headache after that.

In the lecture, docc went over some very workable routines! If you can catch his lecture, you won't regret it :)
