On Saturday, April 13 at 6 p.m., 2019, Midwest Magic is proud to present...
Scott’s name should be well-known to all of you, but if not, let me tell you a little about him. Scott’s magic has reached millions on NBC’s season six of America’s Got Talent where he advanced all the way with his large stage illusions. With articles in People Magazine and Nations Business, the Oprah Show took notice and Scott was invited by Oprah Winfrey to make a guest appearance on her show. He is also quite well-known on the Penguin website where he and Dan Harlan annually host a hilarious Christmas Magic special that also teaches some pretty awesome tricks. He has many items out on the market and along with Bob Koehler offers some of the freshest and most original products for professional on the magic market today.
Scott’s lecture is a sparkling cocktail of time tested effects, with some of his own clever twists. He will cover the ins-and-outs of serving up a well-rounded stand up show program. He provides you with a recipe of how to blend trick selection with audience engagement, levels of interest, and how to play the small stuff bigger. Scott tips some of his stand-up routines from his Standing Up On Stage Video Series featuring the Chop Cup, Invisible Deck, Ring Flight, and Cards Across. He talks about the importance of opening strong and conveying your personality early with his hilarious Candle to Flower Routine.
Scott also teaches some close-up magic like his “Spitball Bullet Catch” and his handling and routine for “Card on Ceiling”. He covers his newest version of the “Russian Roulette” plot called “Nailed It”, and much, much more. Scott talks about the importance of using music in your show and just how to do it effectively, and then shows you how to put together a stand-up program that is solid and well-structured to get you the maximum laughs and wows from your audience. This lecture has something for everyone!
