The other stars of the show were the organizing team, camera work and Dan Harlan's hosting. At one point David was telling a story and needed a cig through quarter gimmick. David couldn't find his and Dan didn't miss a beat in running to the stage area and making an impromptu version so David could continue. The host is like the straight man in a comedy team: vitally important and barely noticed.

David has retained that child like enthusiasm about magic. As his level and station in life, gigs and lectures become almost a chore. Almost 4 hrs. into the lecture Dan gave David the opportunity to stop and David wanted to do one more ( Funner Color Stunner ). And then he explained it!

Anone else have their eyes get as big as saucer plates when he did Johnny Brown's coin through glass? Even when he tipped the method it fooled me.

I know people say this after every lecture, but I never did and I mean it: Best Lecture Yet!

Nice try.
It was actually JCheng who first requested David Williamson and then there were many dittos to follow. You were the only naysayer.

I have some faith in Harlan making things happen with his friends. I will say this...there is a potential. All lectures are filmed in Columbus. Last year, Dani DaOrtiz lectured at Penguin while in town that weekend for the Columbus Magi Fest. This year, Tamariz and Weber will be both be in town for the Magi Fest. Why not.....anything can happen.

I have to say, last night was one of the best four hours I have spent watching a magic lecture. I have seen Dave countless times in both performance and lecture. I have had the opprotunity to see him outside a convention setting performing for lay audiences and it is always educating. But sitting in the front row and to the side last night, you still can't see the pass even when he is teaching it. Absolutely amazing. The little tips, the convincers were worth the price alone.

Also my first time of saying this - Best lecture yet (and I've been to a couple of his live lectures).
Great magic and very entertaining.

Another great job of hosting by Dan Harlan.

It's the best one I've bought and I'm not just saying that as a Dave fan... He handles situations better than ANYONE and shows what GOOD sleight of hand can accomplish.

Chad Long would be amazing but let's let Penguin and the guys over at Paper Crane know this was one of the best lectures they have had.

Awesome job guys and Dan... You're awesome ;-) haha

I'm re-watching again. it's like watching Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and Sam Kinison rolled into one.

Dave looks like he lost weight. Around 25-35 lbs. He looks younger.
