Acar visits the Café often, so I'm sure we'll hear from him.

Sorry for not chiming in sooner!

Piff (John) will be discussing tricks and character development:

1. First half: his metamorphosis from "John" to the Piff character and how that has impacted his career, why it worked, how a character driven act could work for you.

2. The second half will be tricks that he performs to collect all that gold (which is REALLY what being a dragon is all about).

This should be a VERY strong, and high-level lecture from a real pro.

I think this is an important lecture to support because Piff(John) is doing something different and he is proving that it works. So often at conventions I hear ideas about bizarre off the wall characters that magicians would like to perform as but for some reason they don't. Piff took that risk and actually did it. I think it will be inspiring for those that want to try something a little different.

I really enjoyed it. It went for a lot longer than I was expecting (and had allowed for, I had to watch the last half of it offline later, which was painless), it was 3 hours 20 minutes long. There wasn't a lot of generic 'how to develop a character' but there was plenty of discussion about John's previous act and how Piff was developed.

For people who aren't familiar with his earlier work "Love and Other Magic Tricks" he has clips on his youtube channel and you can check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5jyhemFNug

He taught quite a lot of material from his close up/Restaurant days that he's retiring from his act, and things he openly said weren't overly practical, but most of it was. emyers99, he did teach a TNR routine he called Bit by Bit, it was a Torn->3 Fly->Restored Card routine, so I don't know if that's the one you are referring to. And of course he finished up with teaching VDP.

It was a great lecture. Well worth it.

Is there anywhere to order the plastic envelope thing? Thought it was a great trick.

Good lecture John Smile

We'll have it very soon at Penguin. Customs is keeping it longer than normal, which is why it wasn't already received last week. Great trick!
