Eric Evans Lecture Thursday January 17th 7:30 p.m.
at Denny & Lee's Magic Studio in Vegas

The Secret Art of Magic

Eric Evans is an award-winning magician who was twice nominated for Parlor Magician of the Year at the Magic Castle. He has toured the world performing street magic, while also performing in a wide variety of venues from restaurants to theaters including Universal Studios in Los Angeles, California. But most notably Eric is co-author of the highly acclaimed book The Secret Art of Magic. (

The Secret Art of Magic is the ground-breaking book that uses war strategy as a paradigm for teaching street magic, audience management, and dispersion a new and expanded approach to misdirection. While The Secret Art of Magic was a book of pure theory with no effects, Eric's new lecture illustrates these strategies using stand-up routines that have been refined in the fires of the street. However, just as the street magic section of The Secret Art of Magic has been praised by Michael Close, Jamy Ian Swiss, Roger Klause and many others for its applicability to "indoor" venues, so too is the material in Eric's new lecture perfect for anyone desiring solid, bullet-proof effects; indeed Eric himself has used them in parlor and stage shows. Predominately stand-up, the tricks cover a wide range of skill level from easy to challenging.

Some of the highlights include:

Eric's work on the Miser's Dream sequence, including several soon-to-be-classic bits with a young volunteer that always bring huge laughs.
His single-coin routine that is a mainstay of his award-winning stage act; including an original addition that is sure to fool, and more certainly to please, even the most reserved spectator you'll be considering where you can add it to your existing coin work immediately.

Coins, Coins, Coins and more coins! A virtually unending number of jumbo coins from the hand that Eric calls Mephisto's Mits. Plus the production of a countless stream of dollar sized coins. You'll have to see it to believe it.

Eric's version of the Kangaroo Card (a chosen card "hops" from out of a hat) that has fooled even the most knowledgeable card men. "Let me see that again." Earl Nelson.

His version of Johnny Brown's "Balls from Mouth" that creates the illusion of far more balls than are used; includes Eric's surprising climax.

The closer to his street show is the trick he uses to get the money! It uses a borrowed bill in a combination of classic effects that makes them both seem new, including a hilarious destruction of the bill that is completely safe and legal. The simplified handling and the psychology that makes it work is easily worth the price of the lecture itself.

Tickets to this lecture are $20 and seating is limited. Don't miss out. Reserve your seat today by calling the shop at 702-740-3500 or send them an e-mail at

I loved Eric's lecture, but I must admit he lost me when he started to talk about Chinese warfare strategies.
