From our friends at Penguin:

"You'll learn hardcore, professional caliber magic techniques and from a guy who has been working the streets full-time for the last 30 years. If a trick doesn't WOW crowds, or can't be done under fire, Gazzo simply doesn't do it. And if you already own his Street Cups DVD, don't worry, no cups and balls will be covered. This is almost entirely unpublished stuff".

It was fantastic. I've seen Gazzo perform for real audiences at least 50 times, and this was the actual stuff he uses (minus his cups & balls and tossed out deck which are already published).

Along the way, he revealed some great tips for doing street work, how he chooses which tricks to perform and why they work. Gazzo is surprisingly quiet when he's not in character, (carries a big stick Smile) so you do need to listen when he speaks. But he dropped more than enough nuggets between the tricks to get someone started in street performance (or if they're new to magic, at least on the right path).

Of all the lectures we've done, this one actually had the most mixed reviews, I think because a) some folks were expecting more on the lifestyle and business of busking (since this is a niche group, it will soon be a separate lecture) and possibly b) some folks don't realize that real street performers spend their entire lives perfecting the same 3-4 tricks. So when Gazzo is reiterating how important the fundamentals are (double lift, palm, top change) they may still feel like he's holding out some arcane secrets (which he's obviously not).

The highlight may have been his yet-unreleased signature egg bag routine, which we filmed for DVD release later this year.

I'm looking forward to his return.

Thanks for the run down on it. I appreciate it. Gonna have to check it out. The Osterlind one was Incredible... and I own all the material he talked about. These are such a great value.

It was FANTASTIC!

I have other dvds with Gazzo. I was shocked at how quiet and reserved he was when not in character. But he was passionate about his feelings on magic. The classics ( cups and balls, egg bag, Triumph, etc. ) is what he hammered home for those that want to become a good magician.

And his egg bag was full blown incredible.
