How fitting to have a Docc Hilford Lecture on Friday the 13th. !!
Friday February 13 7:00 Monster Mentalism Lecture The recent popularity of Docc Hilfords MONSTER MENTALISM DVDs has caused an immediate demand for his lectures and performances in Las Vegas, Canada, France, Turkey and the UK. Docc will be on the road for several months, and hes including Midwest Magic! Because of bookings into 2012, Docc is ONLY lecturing in 2009. And this time hes letting the monsters loose! This will be your only chance to ATTEND HIS LECTURE, as hell not repeat it! Contemporary mentalism should be as fun and exciting as a night at a drive-in movie. Regular people, leading mundane lives until, DUNH DUNH DUNH, a monstrous event, unexpected and strong, influences their lives forever. Thats what good mentalism can be; a MONSTROUS EVENT. Docc Hilford is going to give up the methods, subtleties and psychology of the acutal tricks he performs in his theatre and night club shows seen around the world, as well as many of the tricks from MONSTER MENTALISM. The methods are based on simple ideas and very little skill is required. ANYONE CAN DO THESE TRICKS. Stand-up and close-up magic and mentalism. Of the magicians and mentalists I have seen live, I have never seen anyone strike the balance between being mysterious and being likable that Docc is able to strike. He has a powerful, other-worldly presence and a warm charisma, and he knows how to use it to maximum effect. He knows his instrument and is completely comfortable in his own skin. He also knows a helluva lot about magic and mentalism and has constructed some very powerful material. N. C. Marsh (An unsolicited testimonial.) Everyone at the lecture will receive RADIO ACTIVE discounts off all items! Docc Hilford is the crazed creator of the renowned Cassandra Deck, author of over 30 books and consultant for a dozen television shows. Docc is respected by the pros who want usable mentalism. His lecture teaches not only the methods, but more importantly, the psychological influences behind the effects. Some of the tricks in this lecture are from Doccs highly acclaimed instructional books and each has been valued at the price of the entire event. Others are from his celebrated Real Time Mentalism collection. And many have never been published. All have been used by Docc in front of discerning audiences. And now YOU will be performing tricks like a MONSTER!
