On Friday evening, July 15th at 7 p.m., Midwest Magic
proudly presents:
A lecture by Bruce Bernstein

It's been quite a while since I served my 16 years at
Magic Inc. in Chicago. But my love of Magic and
Mentalism is stronger than ever, and I'm excited about
sharing some of my newest items, as well as a few of
my classics with you--both old friends and new--at my
first lecture at Midwest Magic. This won't be just a
Mentalism lecture, but what I feel will be an
interesting blend of effects that range from my COLOR
CHANGING KNIVES routine, to some of my newest
creations not yet seen in the Chicagoland area, such
as BERNSTEIN'S BET, the JIGSAW PUZZLE, EAT AT JOE'S,
and my own 3 CARD MONTE ROUTINE. Some of the
"classics" will be my LINKING SAFETY PINS and, of
course, PSYCH - OUT, a psychological game of poker.
All of the items are extremely deceptive, yet are all
easy to perform. I strive to teach Magic that you will
actually use!
I hope to see you there,
Bruce

INFORMATION ABOUT BRUCE BERNSTEIN
Bruce is regarded as one of the world's finest
creators of Mentalism and he was senior demonstrator
at Frances and Jay Marshall's Magic, Inc. in Chicago
for over 16 years. His products have gained acclaim
from around the world, and his routines are used by
many of today's top working pros. Among his creations
are I'VE GOT YOUR NUMBER, THREE, PSI-TECH, PSI-KICKS,
CLASSICS, PERCEPTION IS EVERYTHING, PSYCH-OUT, THE
BERNSTEIN CENTER TEAR, COUPLES, LINKING SAFETY PINS
ROUTINE, and PSI-DECK, of which Max Maven said, "If
Machiavelli had wanted to do Card Mentalism, he might
of come up with something like Bruce Bernstein's
PSI-DECK."

Bruce either lectured and/or performed at all of TONY
ANDRUZZI'S legendary "INVOCATIONALS", and received the
Psychic Entertainers' Association's "BLACKWOOD AWARD
for OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS to the ART of MENTALISM"
as well as the "LEDERMAN AWARD for OUTSTANDING
CREATIVITY." His lectures on Magic and Mentalism are
critically acclaimed, and Bruce has lectured at the
Magic Castle as well as throughout the entire U.S. He
was also a featured performer at this years Abbott's
Close-Up Convention. In addition to his onstage
appearances, he serves as a "behind the scenes"
consultant and has developed material for some of the
biggest names in the field.

Hear what others have said about Bruce's lectures:

Eugene Burger--Bruce Bernstein's lectures are super.
I've attended many of them. He always has clever,
practical ideas for close up and even parlor and stage
effects that will amaze our audiences. I perform two
Bernstein effects in my own repertoire and I never
fail to astound people with them. Don't pass up and
opportunity to hear Bruce Bernstein lecture.

Max Maven--Bruce starts with offbeat ideas, and then
takes them further than you'd expect, with great
results.

Bob Sheets--The new envelope trick in "THREE" is too
good. His linking pins is clearly illustrated with a
gazillion pictures, the handling is well thought out
and very easy to perform. I loved and will be using
"I've Got Your Number", and would rather you just
passed this by. The PSI DECK made me crazy and it
will send your audiences into asylum. It's appears to
be expensive. That's an illusion because this is a,
high impact, DROP IN, FEATURE PIECE. I am a fan, and
after you have seen Bruce Bernstein, all will be
revealed, and you will be one too!

Stephen Minch--"Bruce Bernstein has devised some of
the most diabolical conceits in modern Mentalism.
When he talks I listen--really carefully."

Larry Becker--"I had the pleasure and privilege of
co-sponsoring a lecture in Scottsdale, AZ by Bruce
Bernstein. Bruce received great accolades for his
lecture in Las Vegas before he came to AZ. He did it
again here. The lecture was well attended and
extremely well received. Bruce was great. His humor,
and quick wit had his audience laughing as well as
blown away by his devilish creations. The effects
were not restricted to Mentalism and his routines with
a jar of pennies and two ungaffed safety pins had the
magicians straining at the leash to get his notes. I
heard nothing but raves from the likes of Andre Kole,
Kenton Knepper, Lee Earle and a host of locals. The
material was outstanding and Bruce performed and
explained each and every gem like the pro he is. I
heartily recommend that if Bruce Bernstein lectures in
your neck of the woods, run, don't walk. He's
terrific."
