Michel Huot LIVE: Sunday Feb 7th @7:00pm Eastern. (Penguin LIVE) Learn from this true performer whose corporate material is extremely usable and designed for the real world! SUPPORT LIVE MAGIC.

"Michel Huot is a very clever guy who perfectly blends comedy, magic and cleverness." - Joshua Jay

"Michel Huot is a true performer whose material is designed for the real world. He is fun and clever. Get ready to be amazed and entertained by one of Canada’s most beloved magicians." - Boris Wild

"Michel Huot's unique effects and presentations have brought down the house on 3 different occasions at FFFF! Michel is a smart, funny, creative magician with lots of real world advice that will benefit every magician. Not to be missed!" - Richard Sanders

What will he teach?
Cell Fun : Leave a memorable souvenir in a spectator’s phone. Paul Gertner loved the idea so much, he used it on one of his DVD’s.

Acid Trip : A very strong coffee causes a spoon to bend.

Baby Gag Climax : Turn an old gag into a real mind boggler.

Kangaroo’s Punch : A nice ending to an ambitious card routine.

Dirty Pool : a pool prediction that makes sense.

Crossed Words : a logical way a magician would play with a crosswords puzzle.

Plus, tricks with children toys, your jacket, Christmas lights, cards, birthday hats and see why you should always work with a table when doing cocktail parties.

Who is he?
Michel Huot is Montreal’s busiest corporate magician. He has been doing corporate magic for the past 20 years. He did not received a magic kit when he was 6. He started at age 23, years after seeing a magician at an event. Michel was dealing with personal issues at the time (the death of his mother and father) and realized that time stopped while he was being entertained by the magician. He did not think about his parents for the 10 minutes the magician was there. For him, THAT was the magic. The next day Michel had bought a copy of Mark Wilson’s course in Magic.

He then created a Siamese twin act with a friend that won them the People’s Choice award in a magic contest in Montreal in 1998. He presented that act at FFFF in 1999 and has been invited back ever since. He also two other FFFF favorites - The Human Deck of Cards (with Yannick Lacroix) and UPSIDE/DOWN (with Patrice Meunier and Yannick Lacroix). The 2 acts received well deserved standing ovations.

His creations appeared in MAGIC, GENII, David Acer’s Natural Selections II, MONEY (John Lovick), Mentalism for Kids (Paul Rohmany), The Magic Menu (Jim Sisti) and so on.

He performed at more than 20 shows at Montreal’s prestigious JUST FOR LAUGHS comedy festival, and is a regular invitee at the COMEDY NEST (now owned by David Acer) in Montreal.

Michel also co-organizes an international magic festival in Algeria for the past 5 years. Some of the guests were David Sousa, Soma Jordan Gomez, George Saterial, Leon Etienne, and Ouka.

But above all that, Michel loves to come back to his corporate gigs where he entertains people and, for an instant, he makes time stop!

In this lecture, Michel focuses on commercial magic. Everything is usable. And, you will hear some incredible stories and tips on performing in the real world!

I watched half the lecture and was very impressed. I picked up 2 or 3 things I will use as soon as possible. His pocket opener was very clever. Even though it's not groundbreaking it was nice to see it explained clearly... and his method of using it for a card to impossible location was amazing. A lot magic for little effort. And the great thing is that the breast jacket pocket is a little underutilised. To be able to squueze two items of strong magic from what is currently an almost "unemployed pocket is gold as far as I am concerned.
Also little touches like how to try to avoid picking things up that you drop... but how to gracefully do so if you absolutely have to.... was also a very nice and practical touch for the working magician.
And his photo effect is beautiful. the fact that it uses someone elses iphone and you leave a picture they will see again and again is amazing. It has very commercial applications. Can also be used in corporate / trade show environment to showcase a photo or video related product.

I can't wait to see the second half.
I did get the feeling though that the audience were not so receptive, which I found strange. In any case, great lecture so far and I am delighted to have discovered a new magician with really practical but strong magic.

I would imagine if you see this lecture you will want to buy Dirty Pool after seeing it. I believe Dirty Pool is discontinued, but I found some cards here that look like they would work well: http://www.ozonebilliards.com/poker-pool-playing-cards.html

Hope that is helpful.
