I have have seen many of the Penguin Live lectures. They are a tremendous value. This might be their best live lecture yet. Don't miss it.

Hope it will not be a already hundred times seen lecture with just the split card or timeless in it

He will be including newer material. Take the plunge. You'll get your moneys worth.

Toberman is it more than cards?

I can't answer that. Hopefully Josh will see this and address your question.

Best three coin vanish sequence I've ever seen.

I second that Eric...awesome...I've enjoyed all the lectures I've bought and gotten my money's worth. That being said it seems the headliners are playing to an audience with the notion they've never seen a DVD or anything of there's...as an old timer it's disappointing to see some "classics"
unless there are refinements...IMHO

Fantastic. Best of the four Penguin lectures I've attended thus far. The first trick he taught was from his one man show and was unbelievable. Well worth the money and then some. He saved the three coin sequence for last and I still say it's the best vanish of the final coin I've ever seen.

The Hitchcock trick from his one man show, the card in envelope and the three coin sequence were worth the lecture for me alone. Fantastic lecture.

Very good lecture with a great mix of tricks and more general conversation about magic, learning, Josh's injury, his new one-man show, developing presentations, etc. The lecture ran just over three hours, and I caught about two thirds of it (will watch the rest on download). The Hitchcock card trick was a highlight. Other tricks taught were "Timeless," "Cornered" (with a new, restored bill ending), some material from his Talk about Tricks DVD ("Any Card at Any Page Number," the three-phase Oil and Water, and Miumph), the ace-cutting/color changing deck routine that he uses with the Prism deck (although you can use any differently-colored deck). There was another ace-cutting routine, Josh's Bluff Control, a color change, the card in envelope piece and the three-coin sequence and probably one or two other things I'm not remembering. Picture and sound were great throughout, and the lecture had a relaxed, intimate vibe.

It really was an amazing lecture! As Josh said himself at the outset - he would do a lecture featuring tricks HE really wanted to do rather than a lecture that included tricks that he had to do to cater for beginners or dealer items at to fit time constraints. So what we lucky viewers got was a real eclectic and thoroughly entertaining 'mixed bag' of genuine workers - interspersed with nuggets of advice, anecdotes and a genuine sense of who Josh Jay really is.. And he comes across as this supremely talented and extremely pleasant young man!

All the Penguin lectures have been fantastic as all the lecturers were down-to-earth and came across as if they were just having an intimate session with their friends. some of you may criticize this medium saying we should watch lectures live where the atmosphere is so much better. Well for a magician in Hong kong, we don't get access to too many of these working pros - although we have been graced with Aldo Colombini, Franz Harary among the present Penguin Lecturers. For me, I actually prefer these online lectures as I can watch them very close up and review them later through unlimited downloads. At live lectures, often the lecturer has to do many items with the constraints Josh mentioned above. Also, we need to put up with distractions and these amateurs (and sadly some pros too) talking and juggling with their cards and coins throughout - not to mention mobile phones and cameras!

So all in all, I'm very happy that Acar and Penguin Magic have come up with this extremely affordable series of lectures - as Spock said on Star Trek - Live Long and Prosper!

The opening trick Joshua performed, "Hitchcock, made me swear out loud. Easily worth the price of the lecture. It's good that no one has described it, because that would ruin it for those that haven;t see it yet.. I was so surprised that he taught it. It would have been like teaching Blizzard instead of marketing it.

And then there were those 3 coins………….
