Message: Posted by: Kenardo1 (Sep 3, 2007 10:59AM)
John Luka will be presenting a lecture for the Parent Assembly on Monday, September 17th, 7:45 PM at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, 1425 Madison Avenue (98th Street), Seminar Room, Main Floor or room 11-84 (depending on availability), New York, New York.

This lecture contains material from Johnís new book, Uncovered. You will find routines that range in skill level from nearly self-working to some that are a bit more challenging. However, you will NOT find any knuckle busters in the items presented. Some of the magic includes a no palm card to wallet that kills and is easy to do and a three-ball routine that youíll be scratching your head over.

Featured is Licked At Last, which the experts are calling the best yet In The Hands Triumph. Another stand out item is Back To The 19th Century, an incredible assembly that will make you a believer.

Thereís even more great stuff that you will find works well in the real world. Each and every effect has been audience tested over the years. So, you know youíre getting the real deal. Every item that John performs at the lecture will be fully explained.

You will find that Johnís lecture contains more do-able, practical magic than most lectures. Attend this lecture and find out for yourself. Youíll be glad you did.

Admission policy:

$20 for members of the S.A.M., who are not members of Parent Assembly #1 - Must present valid S.A.M. membership card to qualify

$25 for other guest magicians

I am really looking forward to presenting my lecture and meeting everyone from the S.A.M. Parent Assembly. I am confident that you will enjoy the lecture and leave with some good material to add to your repertoires.

See you on the 17th.

I saw John lecture last night in Columbus, Ohio and boy was it great. I love John's style, his humility and his willingness to share even after the lecture was over. I was also impressed with the tactful and respectful way John handled a critical comment someone made at the intermission (it had to do with the person noticing John holding a break during one of the tricks). The comment was clearly not meant to be constructive in any way and came across more like "hey mr. lecturer, aren't you impressed by how clever I was to catch you." Actually the person making the comment went even further by insulting his own audiences (if he ever performs, that is) with his comment that John's flash of the break wouldn't ever have mattered to "laymen." How deluded! I thought this person should listen to Michael Ammar when he advises magicians to give their audiences a little credit for intelligence. Anyway, John handled it with tact by humbly thanking the person for reminding him of the "problem" since "we can all get lazy with our technique at times." Pure class. Not only did I enjoy John's personality and style, but the tricks were great too! All "doable" unlike much of the impractical stuff you see these days. I purchased his books and so far, they're fantastic. Really good stuff for regular people who aren't full-time pros. If you get a chance to get your hands on "Uncovered" by John Luka or get to see him lecture, don't pass it up. Highly recommended.

I second Fritz's comments. I am one of those Non-Full time pros. I got a lot out of John Luka's lecture. He even took time to show me the technique required for his Chromo Ball routine. He was very patient with me.

He is a very classy person and an outstanding lecturer.

I highly recommend anyone who has a chance, needs to attend.
