I have 2 accounts this one and Mark Chandaue with no underscore (my original account but I forgot the PW and had changed email). I always call it as I see it and if I have any interest such as considering the creator a friend or receiving the item for free I will declare it. Take a look at my review of Joshua Quinns lecture to see that I review honestly. I'm a huge fan of Joshua Quinn which I think is evidenced in my posts before the lecture but my review is honest. I can't say whether you would like the lecture but I can certainly say that I enjoyed it and to be honest with all the pdf's I think many people would get their money's worth even if they just took the downloads and didn't watch the lecture.

Dear Bats,

Personally I have no affiliation with Devin. Like you I saw him live and thought he was a bit lackluster. Even so I took the plunge and purchased his Penguin Lecture. I hoped he had something new and I wasn't disappointed.

I didn't like everything he showed. Devin is more of a 'thinker and tinkerer' rather than a super dynamic performer. That's not a criticism, it's just the way he comes across. He has some good stuff and nice ideas and for me it was $20 well spent. I can't say that for every Penguin lecture I've seen.

If you don't rate Devin as a lecturer then your opinion of him is probably set and I don't think you'll have a 'Devin' epiphany and become a disciple on the basis of his Penguin Live Lecture.

Because I don't know what your magic interests are or your level of expertise and knowledge I can't say if you'll find anything useful in the lecture. All I know is that I did, certainly enough to warrant the $20 price tag.

Try contacting Penguin and express your doubts before you purchase the lecture; see what they say. The lecture is their product after all and you would expect them to stand by their product. Find out if they'll give you a break if you're not entirely satisfied. Nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say. If you've purchased products or lectures from Penguin before then they'll want to keep you as a happy customer.

Best wishes,
Lar.

I also have no affiliation with Devin. I gave him the idea for "Deal or no Deal" but that was after I had already bought Sanda Panda box. He liked it and changed the instructions to include it in later editions.

Lar-

I appreciate your comments above.

I do believe that you made some improvements to "The Crusade" in the supplement, if I am not mistaken (can't remember if it was you since I just woke up and my brain is foggy, but I'm almost certain it was), so I now trust you to a large degree. You are on my radar, which is a good thing to be on.

I'm still "out to lunch" on Devin, but this has been an interesting 7 pages, and I will take your advice to heart! That is one of the positive things about The Café!

And what you've said about Penguin, which I am a regular customer with, is probably on the money!

BatsMagic didn't I send you my extended plumb for Glance? I seem to remember having a pm conversation with you at some point but I sent that pump to a lot of people so I could be mistaken.

And yes Lar's routine for the Crusade is killer.

'Radar' is fine; just so long as you don't get a 'Radar Lock' I'm happy.

I have it on good authority that Devin was the author and main creative consultant for the 80's TV show 'Knight Rider'

It's no coincidence that one of the main characters in the show was called 'Devon'. Devin is far too modest to use the correct spelling of his own name.

When Devin lectured for us I remember he drove a Black Car. I can't remember if Devin's Car talked though.

Best wishes,
Lar.

Uses the baby gag tonight at my gig. The audience LOVED it. I'm talking people were snort-laughing. The reveal of the blak baby had them rolling in the floor. As did the mj jokes. Definitely a winner.

I was impressed with the lecture and it gives me confidence to make up the shoes for Retrogravity since his other works are workable...Retrogravity got a lot of heat but I'm intrigued by it...please PM me if you successfully got it working. Thx

Here is the review for each effect as I mentioned earlier. This is the order they appear in the lecture.

AUTOBEND SILVERWARE:
This is a brilliant effect. You hold a spoon at the fingertips and it magically starts to bend upwards. the spectator can even decide which end of the spoon bends. It's very easy to make up (takes about 2 minutes) For me, this is the perfect spoon bend. I've never liked bending silverware, but this really changed my mind. It just looks like real magic. I will use this.
10/10


HOLLOW LIGHT BULB:
This one really fooled me. You take normal, working light bulb, and place it into a paper bag. You then vanish a whole saltshaker of salt. The bulb comes back out of the bag, the bag is turned over to show it empty and the bulb is now full of salt. (The salt gets poured into the paper bag) It's a freaky but awesome illusion. It's simplicity at it's finest. It is very easy to do and Devin even discusses where to go to be able to make your own Hollow light bulb.
7/10


DISSOLVING ACES:
Four aces vanish one at a time from bare hands with no gimmicks and no sticky stuff. This effect is beautiful and not that hard to master. It didn't fool me, but I'm sure that's just because I'm familiar with the method used. To me, this was one of the weaker effects of the lecture, but Devin swears by it and used this effect to book a restaurant gig. He has the experience to show it's power, but in my eyes it's almost "Too perfect."
7/10


THE BABY GAG:
A classic gag where an audience member names any celebrity, and you pull out a photo of them... when they were a baby. Devin ends by actually pulling out a picture of the celebrity. Devin has a lot of work behind this. There are various jokes throughout the routine that I found very funny. It's a very pun-filled routine that I know will bring laughs from the audience. It is a very comical routine, that ends with a killer climax of the actual celebrity. I will use this.
10/10


FARSIGHT:
Ten cards are dealt face up onto the table. The magician turns his back and stands 20 ft away. The spectator selects any card and covers the other cards up with a handkerchief so no one can see the remaining cards. They then turn their selected card face down on top of the hanky and place their hand on top. Even though your back has been turned the whole time, you are able to correctly name the card they chose from 20 ft away. I had already purchased the manuscript ages ago, but I really like the thinking behind this. It's very clever and something that can be done 100% sure-fire. I may use this.
8/10


BACKSTAGE MONTE:
A magician shows three jumbo cards. For instance, a three of hearts, seven of spades, and three of diamonds. He turns the cards facedown to show the Seven has a different colored back, or has a sticker on the back. When the seven is removed, however, it has 'magically' changed to the King of Spades. You then reveal the effect. You show that it is just a flap that the king hides under making it appear to be a seven. You do the trick again now that they know the secret. But this time when you remove the seven, instead of changing to a king, it changes to an Ace of Hearts! A true kicker ending. I immediately made this up with poker sized cards as I watched the lecture. It is a ton of fun to perform. It is very easy to do and it will fool practically any audience that sees it (especially if they are already familiar with the trick.) I will use this.
10/10


BLINDSIGHT:
Four different colored slips go into four different envelopes. The envelopes are completely opaque. A volunteer tries to determine which color is in which envelope. Whatever color they name gets written on the envelope. They then elect one color to set aside. You then show they were perfectly able to determine which color was in which envelope. Not only that, you show that you predicted which envelope they would place aside. This is an absolutely brilliant effect. The method behind this is very simple, but very devious. Devin taught the original Blindsight and then went into his new method which will make the perfect scenario about 90% of the time. This new method adds a lot to the original and takes this from a good effect to a great effect. It looks like the real deal. I will use this.
9/10


PREDICTIONARY:
A manila envelope sits on the table. You ask someone to name ANY word. You say "Wouldn't it be amazing is your word was PRINTED on a piece of paper inside the envelope!?" They of course say it would be. You then pull out a full dictionary from the envelope. A very funny gag. But you then turn to the page their word is on, and there is one word circled with permanent ink. THEIR WORD. They can look on every other page in the book, no other word is circled. You can then sign the book, and let them keep it as a souvenir. This is a very baffling effect with a very funny initial gag. Much like the baby gag, this starts funny and ends amazing. It's extremely easy to do and make up and yet completely fooling. I will use this.
10/10


TAROT SIGHT:
A full deck of 78 tarot cards are shuffled by a spectator. Once mixed, the spectator deals down the top 5 cards while the magician's back is turned, and even could be across the room. 4 people come up and each THINK of one of the tarot cards. They don't select one. They just THINK of one. You then have them concentrate on a few different aspects of the card, and with absolutely no questions asked, you are able to correctly name the card that each person is thinking of! This is based on Devin's "Foretold" effect. He said that some magicians didn't like foretold and thought it was obvious, so he came up with this method. This is a fantastic effect. It seems above and beyond fair and the method used is a devious one, no doubt. That said, I will personally never be able to perform this in one of my shows, sadly, because I live in an area were tarot cards are viewed as witchcraft and people get very uncomfortable if tarot cards get introduced. That said, I don't think it would be much of a problem to use something besides tarot cards and I will be thinking about what I can use. I HOPE to use this.
9/10


PAINT CAN SURPRISE:
A borrowed ring audibly changes places with the ball inside of a spray-paint can. A black ring then gets sprayed onto a piece of card stock with the spray-paint. When the can is shaken now, there is no rattling inside. The card stock gets signed by the spectator and folded into a small tube. Out from the tube falls her ring. When the paper is unrolled, the black spray-painted ring has vanished. I think this is another example of Devin's cleverness. The core idea is very smart and the way you can audible hear the sound change from a ball to a ring is pretty awesome. However, to me, this routine just doesn't really work. Devin tried desperately to make the routine make sense, but I think it is still a little off. I think the lecture would have been perfectly fine without this. I won't be using this.
6/10


SANDA-PANDA BOX:
A gift box is introduced and is said to contain a deck of cards, a $20 bill, and a folded playing card. The game is "Deal or No Deal" If the spectator gets any card except for the folded one, they win the $20. If they get the card that IS folded, they do not win the $20. So they have 51 chances to win and 1 chance to lose. The cards are spread face up and they name any card they see (really!) They hold onto the card and when the box is opened, low and behold, there is a deck,a $20 bill, and a folded playing card. The magician simply takes the lid off. His hands never go near the box after that. The spectator removes the deck of cards and is told to remove the cards from the box, go through the cards, and remove his selected card. If he can remove his card, he wins the $20. The spectator goes through every card. Their selection is not in the deck. They then remove the folded card that is still inside the gift box and it is indeed the freely selected card. This is based off of a very clever principle. The box is 100% normal. It isn't gaffed in any way, and yet you can do TON'S of effects with it. It is a very clean prediction device. The included PDF covers a few effects to use with the box. I will most definitely be looking for a box that meets the needs (shouldn't be too hard.) I want to use this.
9/10


DUMBFOUNDED:
This is an ACAAN plot using two decks. One of which you never touch. No gimmicks or duplicates. When this first came out a while back, I saw the demo and thought "Seriously, Devin? You are selling THIS? It is so obvious, no one would be fooled by that." Yet, I stand corrected. Devin's performance was fantastic in the lecture and the fact that he was shuffling the deck with real shuffles, really fooled me. In the end, it's a pretty good effect. For me though, it will not be going into my plethora of ACAAN effects. I will not use this.
7/10


AROUND THE SQUARE:
A square is cut from a newspaper. When opening the newspaper, the square visibly morphs into a circle. A very visual effect. Devin presents the effect as just described, but he also mentions forcing a circle with esp cards, cutting the square saying you've cut their shape, and then revealing it to be a circle. I really like the simplicty behind this and I think the visual change from square to circle is astounding. Btw, Devin invented this when he was NINE! Woswza! I will be using this.
10/10


CLIP LINE EXTRAORDINAIRE:
Two newspaper articles are shown and numbered. One has a '1' drawn on the front and one has a '2' drawn on the front. Two predictions are handed out from the very start. The papers are held together and the magician has a spectator read the top line of the news, then he clips off a line and has them read the next line, he continues doing this a bit and then starts cutting faster and tells the spectator to stop him. When he stops, the magician brings the other piece to the front and (holding both of the articles together again) begins to clip away from the BOTTOM. Once again, the spectator reads the bottom line as he clips proving that is really is changing. He starts clipping faster, the spectator stops him. He immediately hands both articles out to the two people with the predictions. They read the predictions which may say "The top line of article 1 will read: Firefighters unite to bring" when they read the top line of article 1, it reads exactly that. The other prediction may read "The bottom line of article 2 will read: Cats destroy man's" and when they read the bottom line of article 2, it reads exactly that. There are no switches of the articles or of the predictions. This one fooled me badly. That said, Devin is very honest in the lecture and says "Magicians love this, but laymen find it boring." I have to agree. It is very smart and will fool almost any magician but a lay crowd may find it underwhelming. For that reason alone, I will not be using this. BUT it's still great!
8/10


CHESS GAMBIT:
This is the last effect taught in the lecture. A chess board is sitting on a table. A volunteer is handed a chess book with a slip of paper folded and sticking out of the top. The magicians says "I will not touch the book again, but my wife is a psychic. I gave her a red crayon, she circled one of these chess pieces in the book and then wrote the page number on that slip of paper so we can find it quickly." A spectator joins the magician, blocks the chess board from everyone's view, grabs ANY chess piece, and places it into a paper bag to be hidden from view. The slip of paper is read aloud, the volunteer holding the book turns to that page, names the chess piece that is circled, And when the spectator removes the chess piece from the bag, it is the exact one that the wife circled. They can flick through the book to be sure there are no other marks. And there aren't. This is another BRILLIANT piece. The whole working is just beautifully done. According to Devin, 90% of the time, you will have an absolute miracle on your hands! But even if it doesn't work perfectly, the effect doesn't change at all from the audience's perspective. The spectator can really take any piece and you never see the actual piece until they remove it from the bag. You can use any chess board. I really really like this. I think it's killer. I'm not sure how my audiences would like it, but I definitely want to give it a try. I may use this.
9/10


STREAMLINED KORAN PAPER TEAR:
This is from the lecture notes provided. It's basically a way to force a certain piece of newspaper on someone after you tear the paper up. It is very very clever and if I can find a use for it, I will use it.
10/10


POKER TELLS:
This is from the lecture notes provided. This is the forerunner to Blindsight. It's workings are practically the same, but you use aces instead of colored cards.
8/10


RETRO-SIGHT WORD LIST:
This is from the lecture notes provided. You show a stack of cards with various words on it. You then show how the words are reversed in a mirror. You then take one of the cards, and with a little magic, it now reads correctly in the mirror but its not reversed in person. You then show every other card in the mirror. Each card is reversed in the mirror, yet with a little magic, every card now reads correctly in the mirror! And every card is now reversed in person! No switches of any kind, and the words are only printed on one side! I like this one a LOT. It is very very clever, but it is a little limited as you have to have a mirror to perform. It would be nice to do at a house party or something. I will use this.
10/10


The PDFs provided are: Around the Square, Autobend silverware, baby gag, Blindsight, Chess Gambit, Clip Line Extraordinaire, Dumbfounded, Farsight, Lecture Notes, Tarot Sight


That's all from me. And only took me 2 hours to write XP



I was one of those skeptical about the lecture but decided to give it a shot. Now that I have finished viewing it, here is my review. I've quoted Magic.Maddy's review since he gives a great description of each effect (and I'm too lazy to restate them), and it is also a great read that deserves another mention so I will just post the title and my thoughts on each one. Keep in mind though that my rating scale goes from 1-horrible to 10-fantastic with 5 being in the middle, or OK. I like to use the whole scale, so just because you see a “5” doesn't mean the trick is bad.


AUTOBEND SILVERWARE:
Now to give you perspective on where I am coming from, I am not really familiar with metal bending, but I really liked Devin's take on it. What really sparked my interest was the way the spoon bends upward. It goes from making the spoon “melt” at the hinge to now actually causing the spoon to bend in the direction you want, which I think makes a big difference. The added touch afterwards of showing the spoon rubbery (and it not being the rubber pencil illusion) was nice, too.
10/10

HOLLOW LIGHT BULB:
This was neat, but its workings was kind of what I expected. Although it didn't fool me (and I'm not expecting each effect to do so), I think it can play well for other people. Devin mentioned that it is his most famous trick and I certainly don't doubt that, it just doesn't really work for me. And that's OK. To me it is more of an illusion similar to sawing a lady in half, or the dove pan, where it becomes a puzzle to be solved. Some people love that, it's just not my style, though.
5/10

DISSOLVING ACES:
Another disclaimer, I am a card guy. I love good card tricks. Although Devin says this isn't a card trick...it is. But I love it. It might not be a magician fooler but I don't care, I'm not doing magic for magicians. I really liked it and thought it was very visual. Many disappearing objects objects tricks have a little discrepancy on the last vanish or transition to make the magic happen but that is not the case in this one. Each one disappears very cleanly.
9/10

THE BABY GAG:
OK, I disagree with Maddy on this, I thought the baby jokes were pretty cheesy. But the principle behind the effect (Phil Trick by Trevor Duffy and Phil Goldstein) was nicely done. And there was a part in there where Dan Harlan gives a 'shout out' to Phil Goldstein that I thought was awesome. This is my second Penguin lecture, the first where I see Dan as an emcee or host and he was money. I also got to see more of Devin's personality in this one as well. Even though I thought the gags were a bit corny I still found Devin charming. The trick itself is very good and can be modified for anyone to use their own presentation but my rating reflects the whole thing including presentation, which is a big part of this one.
5/10


FARSIGHT:
Although I won't use it there is some smart thinking around this one. It worked the way that I figured it would but I was worried that there would be a lot of memorization involved. Nope, Devin has already addressed that, and in a cool way if I might add. If you like the description provided by Maddy, you will like the effect. Very clean and direct.
7/10

BACKSTAGE MONTE:
Read Maddy's description but I really liked this one. That kicker ending is awesome. I'm already trying to think of ways to incorporate this into my own version, and if I want to tell the audience how it is done (which is in the presentation of this one). Nicely done, Devin.
10/10

BLINDSIGHT:
I agree with Maddy, this is an” absolutely brilliant effect”. This is probably my best effect of the lecture. I thought I knew how it was done, but it still got me. And I loved how Devin told the story about the folks that saw this at Mindvention. It was like I was experiencing it like them, thinking I knew, but then thinking, “wait...how...?!” In the words of Kenny Bania, “That's gold, Jerry. Gold!!”
10/10

PREDICTIONARY:
This one had another cute gag, but the thinking behind it is pretty slick. I am just not sure how authentic the gimmick looks. Will have to test it out but this one has a lot of potential.
8/10

TAROT SIGHT:
To quote Maddy: “This is based on Devin's "Foretold" effect. He said that some magicians didn't like foretold and thought it was obvious, so he came up with this method.” I am not familiar with “Foretold” but this seems pretty slick if you do a good job with audience management. But to me, even during the presentation, it seemed like it would be easy for everyone to not follow his direction as intended. It is hard for me to get into it without exposing but how you read the spectator's mind could be a bit tricky.
7/10

PAINT CAN SURPRISE:
Maddy echoes my thoughts with this one, just seemed a bit off and not really a good motivation for why the actions take place. Didn't care for this one.
4/10

SANDA-PANDA BOX:
Maddy makes my job easier because I can just quote him “This is based off of a very clever principle. The box is 100% normal. It isn't gaffed in any way, and yet you can do TONS of effects with it. It is a very clean prediction device.” That is why I like this one so much. As a magician you are always thinking “switch” but watching this and how the box is opened and the card revealed eliminates that thought. It may just be me but I think laymen assume a switch takes place in many of these types of effects but with this one it is just so clean and simple.
9/10

DUMBFOUNDED:
Devin mentioned that the Café wasn't too fond of this trick. Having not read that thread I had the luxury of going in without any preconceived notions. I thought it was good. My favorites right now are Barrie Richardson's Impromptu ACAAN and the Holy Grail CAAN but if I didn't have those I would consider using this one.
7/10

AROUND THE SQUARE:
Another that falls into the illusion category for me like the hallowed light bulb but I will definitely use this in very informal situations with friends and family. Can't wait to show my daughters and son this one. Very slick and I'm also impressed Devin thought of this when he was so young.
8/10

CLIP LINE EXTRAORDINAIRE:
Good effect but I think this was a case where more was added just to be a magician fooler. Knight has a nice touch of how he uses the numbers on each clip but I think the original Clip Line is better by being more direct.
7/10

CHESS GAMBIT:
I love chess so I was looking forward to this one. I agree with the quoted review, the method is great. Maddy had a great write-up on this one and I can't really add anything. I am interested in preparing this and seeing how well it works out if you don't get the first hit you were planning on. I don't think there will be an issue but I'm curious to see how “it feels”. The method though, so good. The funny thing is I have that Jeremy Silman chess book.
9/10

I haven't read the PDFs yet, but the amount of value you get for this lecture is incredible. I got a feel for Devin's personality and really enjoyed listening to him. His pieces of advice from his performances and the history provided was great. And the questions that Dan asked after the lecture...those I really enjoy because you learn more about the personal side of the performer. Learning that Devin had a magic gig in his high school and had to use his lock-picking skills to break in to set up since the janitor didn’t show up to unlock the building, those kinds of stories I really appreciate. Seeing this makes me really want to see a Harry Lorayne lecture, though. But back to Devin, really great stuff and he seems like a great person. I hope he continues to post on the Café.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I'm glad many of you loved Predictionary. It is my favorite effect and use it in my tradeshows all the time. I'm the creator and I was very humble to have Devin teach it in his Penguin lecture. Hopefully in the future, we might put a book with updated handlings with Predeictionary. So, please stay tuned! Smile

"They" say that success is the best revenge.

I was recently surfing the internet and came across Devin Knight's connection to Al Mann. One thing led to another, and I found that Devin Knight presented a Penguin Live Lecture back in 2013. Based solely on my online meanderings, I decided to purchase his Penguin lecture, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. His thinking is crystalline, and he has a gift for providing clear explanations. Every move and subtlety in all of the effects that he demonstrated are deliberate in their execution and honed over many real-life performances.

I am so happy that my decision to purchase and watch his lecture was untainted by the inexplicable negativity expressed by many in the preceding posts, many of them provided before his lecture even came out.

"Success is the best revenge." Devin Knight's Penguin Live Lecture is currently a 5-star product based on 40 customer reviews. It is so good. Please ignore my emotionally irrelevant droning and rely on those 40 happy customers. Purchase Devin Knight's lecture, view it, and learn a few ingenious methods that you may have never thought of before. Thank you, Mr. Knight.

WELL, I've read this entire thread and no where did I see an answer to this question...I watched Devin's Trick for sale currently on Penguin...STOPPING A CAR WITH YOUR MIND"...and thought now looks pretty great. FIRST a person driving a car has it stall out when the magician yells S T O P ~~..and then the driver -can't start it no matter how many times they try until he puts his hands on the hood, and commands the car to start up..and it does...and it's only 9 bucks...how can you go wrong,,,right??
Tell me if you know anything about his trick,should I buy this? Cheers or Jeers~~~ Thanks in advance
