Rick Maue has been creating deception for over four decades. He is the founder of Deceptions Unlimited and the author and creator of The Book Of HauntedMagick; FATE; Imagine; The Final Picture; Mixed Emotions; The Journey; The Book Of Spirits Séance; and the upcoming Occam's Magic. In addition, Rick recently shot a video series of original material for an upcoming DVD release from L&L Publishing.
Rick Maue's Theatrical Deception Lecture is not a regular magic lecture, nor is it a mentalism lecture, or a “bizarre” lecture. Instead, it is a lecture on creating, adapting and performing strong magic and mentalism for audiences in the real world. He will feature a number of his signature pieces, and also several unreleased items. None of the effects will require expensive gimmicks or props — just everyday items such as envelopes, poker chips, paper, playing cards, etc… And all of the material will be what Rick refers to as VdM Magic —which means that it will all be so technically easy that the Venus de Milo could perform it. He will perform and teach magic ranging from mentalism to standard magical effects to haunted items. Not only will he explain secrets of tricks, but also show you how to create your own routines, how to make your magic more personal and how to develop a bond with your audience. The main emphasis is on presentation which means Rick will discuss the “how” and “why” of real performances.

“You certainly set the standard at the convention. I am so glad that I got to see you lecture.” - Banachek
“Rick Maue's lecture absolutely blew me away. The material was strong, the theory was solid, and it is obvious from the first minute of the lecture that Rick CARES about his craft.” - Joshua Jay
“The thinking behind the effects here is fascinating...simple in method and heavy on effect. These are the kinds of things that should be of interest to all of us.” - Doc Eason
“Why is it that when I see you lecture, I feel like I am watching a mad scientist at work?” - Marc DeSouza
"Rick Maue is one of the most entertaining mentalists I have ever worked with. Whether performing magic or mentalism, his style is totally unique!" - Simon Lovell
“Rick, I like the way you think! I'm having fun with a number of routines from your current lecture, especially Terasabos. Great Stuff!” - Paul Gertner
“Everyone attending his lecture will walk away with some great original ideas and concepts. More importantly, people will leave with the confidence and motivation to improve what they already do.” - Jon Stetson
“ One of the many things that I enjoy about Rick Maue is his sense of the theatrical. He can make simple things very important to the audience. In short, Rick has a little something for practically everyone in his lecture.” - Kenton Knepper
“If you are looking for solid magic with interesting presentational approaches, look no further. Highly recommended!” - John Luka
“Man, Rick is great. I love him.”- Penn Jillette
