I've finally sussed out the truth behind the dinner roll story.

Apparently the group of Traders that treated Kreskin so badly was not singling him out for the particular rudeness they showed. They have a tradition of throwing dinner rolls at every speaker/entertainer they engage.

The year before Kreskin, this group of adolescent misfits threw rolls at The Chief Economist of one of the top banks in the Nation.

The set is also available from the Canadian site:

http://www.chapters.indigo.ca

Do a search for Kreskin and it'll pop up. A reviewer on that site stated there were 20 episodes on the set but I suspect it's a typo.

I just got my set the other day and I'm very, very pleased. Despite ad copy that says there are ten episodes on the DVDs, there are actually twenty shows in all.

As well, there are several excerpts from other shows and a section with Kreskin talking about some other memorable moments.

It was really nostalgic for me. I vividly remember watching these shows when they were on TV and being impressed with Kreskin's talents, his showmanship, his audience management and how he can take a small effect and build it into a major mystery.

Another thing that interested me is how much sleight of hand he performed on the show, announcing to the audience that he was using "magic" and not mentalism for those effects. I've seen his live show several times and I don't recall him doing anything like that now. Perhaps it's just a function of a large live audience versus a television camera and smaller studio crowd.

Keep in mind, if you order the set, that they were filmed from 1971 to 1978 and both the fashions and production values are a bit dated. Still, that just adds to the charm.

There's a lot of fun and education in this set.

I almost forgot - the Friar's Club DVD is entirely different in almost every way.

OMG! Thank you, Jaysus! (And The amazingly Amazing Kreskin, needless to say!)

I found this through HMV here:

amazon.ca

They want $60 Canadian to ship it, otherwise it will take 10 weeks. Bugger that! I'll wait for somewhere Amazon.com to get it. Or can anyone else recommend somewhere?

Cheers,

I just received mine today! Watched a couple episodes...So great for so many reasons..not the least of which mentalism history..just think if we had this much footage of Dunninger... And of course, the real lessons for us on here are in showmanship and audience managment...Cant say enough good things about this.

I am very interested in these.
I was wondering what's the different between the 1 DVD and 3 DVD versions?
Anyone has both?

The 3 dvd version is his TV show which was filmed in the 70's. CLASSIC material...

I only have the 1 disc version. That one was recorded at the Friar Club.
It also has him showing the audience how to do some of the magic. Frankly, I'm not familiar with the Amazing Kreskin's work so it was really interesting to watch a master at work.

What I'd like to ask is do you recommend me getting the 3 disc version as well?

My wishlist just keeps getting longer and longer....sigh..

If only it's not so costly... Aargh. Doesn't help that I'm not in the US or Canada so shipping is going to cost again... ***.

THE BEST MOMENTS OF THE AMAZING KRESKIN
Kreskin Television/DVD Alert

It is with great excitement that I announce the release of my latest DVD, THE BEST MOMENTS OF THE AMAZING KRESKIN which contains approximately 8 ˝ hours of my original television series The Amazing Kreskin. The team, in putting this together, did so with tremendous care. None of the shows were scripted. The participants in every single case were legitimate, and in no way, shape or form, stooges or confederates. For that reason, never was anyone given a nondisclosure legal form to sign. To the contrary, the scores if people who participated through the years were legitimate, whether they were taken off the streets, or part of my studio audience.

I ordered my copy the other day and await it's arrival...

I own this and absolutely love it. There are more performance ideas on these DVDs to keep anyone doing mentalism for years and its just darn entertaining. Its def. worth the investment.
