Michael Vincent

Nov 9    / 7:30 PM
Nov 10 / 8:00 PM

Age Limit 13 +                     BYOB Show for ages 21 +

 

Michael Vincent has been named Best Close-Up Magician three times by the UK’s Magic Circle; 1983, 1991 and 2003, and was awarded the title of International Magician of the Year in 1993.

His sublime magic has been featured at numerous venues around the world for top corporations and international celebrities. He  would be the first to admit that great technique counts for nothing if it not supported by a meaningful presentation. I believe that great sleight of hand magic combined with a good plot and presentation can make all the difference between the audiences acknowledging that they have experienced something extraordinary.

Michael Vincent Lecture

November 8/ 7:30 PM

Michael is a multiple time award winning magician and one of very few performers to have appeared on Penn and Teller's Fool Us... twice!

If you have seen Michael perform you will know that not only does he handle coins and cards beautifully, but his knowledge of the history of magic is vast. Michael is known for his excellent teaching ability and will be sharing a talk entitled "Synergy".

With Synergy, Michael talks about using all the magical elements at your disposal and bringing them together to create a masterpiece. It examines the right construction, design and scripting to help express your magic. This "synergy" only comes after many years of study and performance and Mike will be with us to share his insights of what works to create effective magic.

Michael will incorporate a few performance pieces to illustrate his concept. This not about new tricks, it’s about a way of thinking about magic that you are already successful with and re-engineering it for even greater impact.
