There have been a few people over the last few months saying that Peter was a nobody, being hyped by a bunch of friends.
They demanded proof in the form of videotaped shows, while hiding behind their own veil of anonimty and made-up-names.

Those of us who knew the truth were shouted down as cronies and hangers on.
Maybe now they'll be forced to admit their ignorance (though they never would publicly)
It's time for the doubters to wake up, and not just smell the coffee.
But strap on their life vests and grab hold of anything that floats, 'cause there's a tsunami a comin' to mentalism.
And it's called Peter Turner

I'm going to have to politely ask you a question here...(as you have been inquisitive about pete before now)

even though you have evidence, can see it for yourself, see others witness it too - why can't you just give credit where its due? or to even think about whether you've overly harsh towards pete? to be open-minded...

I'm old enough to not really care about any kind of online reputation - and I've spent a little time with pete, and he is genuinely a good lad, and that's not even talking about mentalism or anything else...and he's young, talented and if you met him, you'd see that too...

sooooooooo...i guess I am saying (politely) to drop the current state of mind, and be open to a change of mind(pro)...

you know what happens to a rigid branch in the wind don't you...

and lets not forget, this was a LIVE lecture, no cuts, no edits, live and die by the performance...

I should make it clear that my post wasn't made as an attack or to start yet another Café war.
So no one needs to get upset.
But sometimes it's nice to be able to show that you weren't making things up.

I once discovered a track by Whitesnake that everyone else said was crap.
It got nowhere.
It was re-released with one slight change (the word hobo to drifter) and was a huge hit.
Felt very sweet.

Managed to stay up and watch roughly two hours worth last night. Demolished a bottle of whiskey and woke up with my ipad in one hand and empty bottle on the floor and a smile on my face.

Can't wait to do the same again tonight and pick up wher I left off!!!

Well done Peter Smile
As a mentalist you must always ask yourself what if! And throughout your life you should seek to ask and answer this question over and over again, only then will your wildest dreams become a reality!

Probably not the first time you've woken up with an empty bottle and a smile on your face. Smile

I did watch it live but it seems I was the only one who's connection cut off for 20-30 minutes. When it came back on Pete was explaining an effect I hadn't seen which was really annoying.

Last night I had the pleasure of attending Pete’s lecture in person. I will try to keep the “hype” to a minimum, but I witnessed some incredible moments, so that could be difficult. I arrived early so I could have some time to meet Pete and get to know some of the other lecture attendees. From the get go Pete kept contact to a minimum and only wanted know my first name and nothing else. While he performed a few effects for us, he didn’t really interact with me or any of the other attendees. As a result all of the performances during the lecture where legit, and I (along with everyone else in attendance) were in awe during Pete’s performances! After the lecture he performed some effects and readings that I couldn’t (and frankly for the joy of experiencing wondrous moments didn’t want to try to) wrap my mind around.

If your goal is to improve your mentalism, your magic, your performance of art I whole-heartedly recommend spending the $25 (still discounted as I am writing this post) and enjoying the lecture many times over.

I rank Pete’s lecture up with Harry Anderson’s in terms of value to improving my performance and providing me with a bounty of food for thought. I would say that Pete’s lecture leaned towards the theory side (which I love), and the effects seemed to highlight the theory. But he does share effects and goes in depth while explaining. He even managed (through his explanation and discussion of techniques) to instill me with the confidence to start utilizing bold techniques in my performances. I had never had the opportunity to experience these techniques live and I am not sure how the power of them translated while watching at home, but Pete has helped me understand their value and effectiveness.

Pete discussed a wide variety of theory including the power and necessity of implication, observation skills, infusing your actions with credibility, confirmation principle, heat displacement, emotional relevance, creating a legend, the importance of being yourself and so much more. As far as effects, he performed an ACAAN, predictions, mind reading, a bit of reading, a p**k and a s****h, several forces, many subtleties, and more. I won’t make a specific list because I experienced a lot after the lecture and don’t want to mix them up.

Three things really stood out for me:
1) Pete has a passion for our art and joy of performing that permeates everything he does.
2) Our art deserves respect and I should perform as such (hard to do this point justice, but Pete does)
3) Take chances and I can create miracles

I could go on and on but my son will be getting up from his nap soon. Really the highest praise I can give Pete is I felt a true sense of wonder while experiencing his performances last night and he is a genuine gentleman that I would share a beer with any day of the week.

Enjoy the lecture!

I drove from Cleveland and missed work in order to see this lecture. I've never met Peter before but was very curious because of all of the threads about him on the Café. I think the above posters (esp Nathan) have done a great job describing the lecture and stressing the unscripted nature of his performance.

Here are some things that stood out for me.

Peter is super friendly and has a magnetic personality. Immediately upon meeting him he asked if I had a deck of cards (I did of course), asked me if I had a favorite card - I said the five of hearts. He asked me to start dealing and stop at any time. I tried to trip him up - I know the stop trick. I dealt about 30 cards but dammit I stopped at the five of hearts. He then did the same thing to the guy next to me. Blew me away.

The first effect of the lecture was an ACAAN that fooled me completely. During the explanation I realized that this was an effect from his ebook "Dare to be Bold" which I own. I remember reading it, thinking about it, but deciding that it wouldn't fool. I will be re-reading that book.

After his initial set, I don't recall him doing any more effects until right at the end but still found the lecture intense and interesting. He finished with a performance only of Isabella’s Star.

Afterwards we went to the bar and a few beers. Like I said he is very open, friendly, and interesting guy. He made me feel like one of his mates. It wasn't long before he had a few local girls under his thrall. I don't know - maybe he hypnotized them...

Given my recollection of that chorus, it seems a very apt story! Smile

I've just set my download in motion for part one. Well over a gb of lecture coming down the interwebz as we speak. In just over an hour, I'll be able to watch it! Smile

So it's pick-on-the-bald-guy day is it? Smile

I've not so much lost my hair, merely re-located it to my ears and nostrils.

It was hell growing up with ginger hair. Maybe it's just a U.K. thing, but red hair was about as low as you could get on the dweeb scale.
