Suzanne LIVE: Sunday Aug 21st @7:00pm Eastern. (Penguin LIVE) Being a restaurant magician SUPPORT LIVE MAGIC.

http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7288

"Suzanne has a kind of cool, sweet authority that assures and audience that they are in the hands of a real pro." - Teller

"Suzanne is a force of nature, and the definition of a working performer who has 'walked the walk.' If you are serious about the performance of magic in the real world, listen to this woman." - David Regal

"Suzanne is one of my favorites performers for lay audiences. I'd listen to anything she has to to say about magic.....carefully!" - Eric Jones

"Suzanne has the amazing ability to let her audience shine and become the star. This is something rarely seen in magic and is a departure from the "look at me" style magic that we so often see. This is something to study and understand but also to enjoyed." - Brent Braun

As one of the foremost performers in Restaurant Magic, Suzanne will share with you many tips and tricks on how to get the resident performing positions. She has advice to give that can only come after decades of experience. She will also teach you some of her favorite effects that have helped her achieve success in her career.

Don't miss this exclusive evening of opportunities and playfulness with Suzanne!

What will she teach?
Blank Ambition: Suzanne's ambitious card routine using double blank cards and ends with the entire deck becoming real.

Card to Pocket: Suzanne's interpretation of Card to pocket. So much fun your audience will love it.

I Wish This Was MY Card: A card effect that shows children the power of wishing and fries adults in the process.

Do You Trust Me: Suzanne playfully cheats her audience ending with two cards changing in the spectators hands.

Science is weird: Suzanne puts this effect it into a child's hands. Using only a dinner napkin and a couple of coins she shows why she thinks science is weird.

CamoCash: Using Richard Sander's Extreme Burn, Suzanne offers people an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of her new Multi Level Market Scam... aah... err... Venture.

Who is she?
Audiences all over the country have been falling in love with Suzanne since 1985.

Her engaging style makes the audience an essential participant in her performance. Other respected professional magicians have called her "flawless" and "amazing". She is a favorite at Hollywood's famous Magic Castle, and in 2010, became the only woman to have been nominated and awarded the title of "Close-Up Magician of the Year" by The Academy of Magical Arts. To date, she is still the only woman to have held that title. Most recently she is one of the few magicians able to fool Penn and Teller on CW's hit TV show "Penn & Teller: Fool Us".

She was featured on the cover of the Genii Magazine, the Society of Magician’s M.U.M. magazine, and the International Brotherhood of Magician Linking Ring magazines.

Any reviews.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

I think there are 2 or 3 up at Penguin now.
It is a pity so much of this was already on her dvd set which is great!

If she says "I know, right?" one more time, I am going to throw something at the computer screen. Please tell me this is only scripting and she doesn't talk like that in real life or in the rest of the lecture. First female magician for Penguin Live and I feel like I'm watching "2 Broke Girls" without the off-color jokes.

Suzanne is incredibly smart, incredibly kind, and an incredibly talented magician. You, sir, need to chill the **** out. And if that's what you take from her work, well, you may have bigger problems than "I know, right?"

If you are aiming this question at me, and I assume you are as you quoted my response to the other poster, you are barking up the wrong tree. Mine was a sarcastic answer to his comment (which is why I quoted his comment). I have only seen her perform once. It was a Blank Ambition routine on Reel Magazine "Tuesday Night Tricks" and I personally thought she did a good job of it. I am not questioning her ability or putting her down in any way. I have not seen any of her work other than that to even try and form an opinion. You simply must have misinterpreted my response.

Then please accept my apologies. Suzanne does a great job with my Blank Ambition routine. Looking forward to seeing her penguin lecture.

I respectfully stand by my criticism of her *scripting* for some of the material. If that comes across as "putting her down", as Poof-Daddy states, I'm sorry. I will state that the once the lecture got closer to the hour mark and she got into the kids magic and shared very valuable, practical, ready-to-implement guidance for restaurant magic....very helpful, very practical. My initial comments were certainly not reflective of that, and should anyone doubt the value of Suzanne's Penguin lecture, let me just say that you will want a pen and paper with you to take notes when you're watching because you WILL be taking notes. Should anyone have seen my initial comment as in any way reflective of Suzanne's Penuin lecture, don't be an idiot like I was -- there's a lot of very good stuff here. danaruns and corpmagi, I hope that clarifies where I stand on the matter.

Any more in the way of reviews? I have seen her do Blank Ambition on Reel Magic and really liked the routine and that has sparked my interest.

Specifically I'm interested in the Cards to Pocket routine.

His ambitious routine comes pretty much directly move from move from Greg Wilsons pyrotechnic pasteboards and card to pocket routine is Carlyle homing card with Williamson ending. AMA winner or not, I would expect a lecturer to at least teach his own material or serious variations on already published material.

MAJOR crediting issues with this one, I'm amazed Dan Harlan (who has a superb knowledge of magic and respects creators) didn't jump in. The blank deck she uses here is exactly the same routine as Greg Wilson's DVD from ten years ago. No credit. Homing card, not hers. No credit.

I was GOBSMACKED.

I believe women in magic should be encouraged not attacked, as is happening here. Well done Suzanne, keep it up.

What does the fact that she's female or male have to do with it? Nothing. If you're suggesting she should receive special treatment BECAUSE she's female that's incredibly demeaning and sexist, why would you say something like that?

I can see why women are put off magic given the omnipresent alpha male behaviour in our community. I wasn't being sexist and demeaning at all, just giving Suzanne encouragement for doing well given the environment.
