Dismay, your list needs some updating as there are many that have already done their lecture or are dead.

I'd love to see some mentalist like Michael Murray, Mark Chandaue, and Phedon Bilek. I think those would be excellent.

Hello Silversleights04,

I had the honor to be proposed to lecture for Penguin, back in 2018. This was very tempting, as Penguin Lectures have been an amazing source of inspiration for me. However, I declined this proposal, just because I feel that my performance style is simply not compatible with this particular setting. And releasing something that is not meeting my standards (because I do believe it wouldn't) is simply out of the question for me. I put out ONLY things I am actually using, that work, and that leave a deep, lasting impact on my audience. If you're familiar with my work, what could I demonstrate on a Penguin Live audience? How would I be able to create a real connection with these cameras, lights, crowd? How would I be able to make my participant open herself to me?

That's the reason. If I had been invited to do a Penguin live as a coin magician, I'd have run for it. As a mentalist, I prefer passing.

Have an amazing day/evening, depending on where you are

I was booked for a Penguin lecture but then the pandemic hit which scuppered the trip. Once things are back to normal hopefully the lecture would go ahead.

This is a totally fair response Phedon. You're quite right, I don't think I could see you doing Sibyl for a Penguin crowd. That said, I mostly just enjoy hearing your ideas and the way you speak about mentalism and connection, I'd love to peek inside your brain more. Congrats on the popularity and great reception of Orion! I've been obsessively been checking my email for the invitation, can't wait to pick this one up 🙂

Yeah I think it’s time Penguin starts branching out into some other areas that I think would help a lot of the community such as creating, there’s a lot of creative people out there that I think would be great appeal, also the business side of magic, performing, and entertainment. There's a lot of other good topics yay would be of interest and helpful to the community rather than just performance, effects, and explanations.

Mark, I'm dying to hear you lecture. I'm half way through Harpacrown Too and loving every page. Your writing style feels like chatting with the coolest mentalist at the bar after a convention. I may owe you a drink or twelve for this treasure trove!

Thanks for those kind words Silversleights04, I’m glad you are enjoying the book. I’m not sure I can live up to that description of coolest mentalist at the bar, but I have never been known to turn down a free drink Smile

Silversleights04, I suggest you stop reading HC2 right now. Otherwise, you’ll end up owing Mark so many drinks that you won’t be able to afford Orion.

I would really really love to see Elliott Bressler in video.
What would a real mindreader do?

An updated one from Atlas Brookings would be great (e.g. would love to see if he has an updated/new spin on his "think of a superhero" routine, that would work just as well in this post-hundreds of Marvel and DC comics movies and spin-off TV shows world...)

And Uri Geller - but not to demonstrate any of his effects - rather, to share his tips and techniques on generating excitement in spectator(s), amplifying your charisma/presence, using storytelling/creating powerful narratives to enhance your effects and and ways of using spoken language and physical communication (both on an interpersonal basis, e.g in close-up one-to-one scenarios, and also when working with large crowds or on TV) to either distract people or over-ride their normal "filters of reality"
