Mark Elsdon 1 (for the impromptu workers and expert equivoque lesson)
Banachek (packed with mentalism content)
David Williamson (Easily the most entertaining lecture I've seen, essential viewing for close up workers)
Sal Piacente (amazing techniques for memorization that you can quickly get into)
Daniel Garcia (The Texan David Blaine)
-Magic sees Magic-

-Magic is the gift we teach ourselves to give to other people-

I realize that someone recommended John Bannon early on, and you were turned off by the idea of "mentalism" lectures. I'd encourage you to reconsider on this one in particular, though.

Like you, I don't perform much pure mentalism. However, John is so much more about the psychology of deception and misdirection, that I don't even really consider this a mentalism lecture. So much of what he discusses will serve to strengthen your performance and the delivery of your close-up work. It's definitely worth checking out.

Who would you say was the best in terms of comedy? Comedy bits, routines, and overall laughs and fun?

For me to the ones where I use and learned the most from.

David Williamson (The most entertaining/funny lecture ever recorded)
Brent Braun (Amazing Real Worker Stuff)
Axel Hecklau (So many tips to make better magic in general)
David Stone (Funny and good routines)
Inaki Zabaletta (I really like Inaki's style and most of his stuff fit perfectly mine style too)

These were as far as comedy? So magic aside, these are your funniest in terms of comedy? I have heard David Williamson was kind of obnoxious and berating comedy, so "The most entertaining/funny lecture ever recorded" has me questioning this. Again not looking for magic but in terms of comedy.

In general, because of the need to address both comedy and magic, magic lectures are typically not a good source of just comedy. If you are looking for an understanding of comedy from a magicians perspective, Jeff Hobson and Michael Goudeau put together a comedy writing workshop that might still be available from Jeff Hobson's website. If you are looking for comedy magicians, MAGIC magazine put out a list of the top ten comedy magicians several years ago. I believe this list was put together by magicians ... some magicians on this list have done Penguin lectures. In terms of comedy bits, routines and laughs, one of my personal favorites who has a Penguin lecture is David Kaplan (The Great Kaplan).

Another vote for Daryl and David Williamson's lectures. One that I really enjoyed a lot but is a little bit more geared towards beginners is Magick Balay.

For mentalism, as others have mentioned, Banachek was outstanding and a no brainer. If we are allowed to post Live Acts, Drew Backenstoss had an amazing one as well.

As far as comedy goes, David McCreary was hilarious (another live act).

2 that I really enjoyed were those done by Jay Scott Berry and Devin Knight. JSB's introduced me to some great thinking on some standard gimmicks, and Devin...good stuff, but it was so much stinkin' fun to just watch it all play out!
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

I recently downloaded David Williamson's Penguin lecture. What I enjoyed more than the effects, is David's thinking and theory. I especially like his thoughts about the many coins across routines that are out there, and why he performs the one he does.
