On Saturday, March 27 at 6:00 pm, Midwest Magic is
proud to present a Chicagoland exclusive: John
Carney. Call Midwest Magic at 847-455-4288 or stop in at
our NEW STORE 9706 Franklin Av., Franklin Park, IL
(just around the corner from the old shop) to make
your reservation!

John Carney is acclaimed as one of the finest
magicians in the world. He has won prizes at the FISM
international conventions and has been voted Magician
of the Year by The Magic Castle six times. This makes
him the only magician in their history to have won in
every category possible: Close-Up, Parlor, Stage and
Lecture. His books, Carneycopia and The Book of
Secrets, are considered by many to be a classic and
one of the best magic books in the past decade. He
has appeared on CBS Magician's Favorite Magicians and
Fox's Magic on the Edge. He has not booked an
extensive lecture tour in almost ten years and now
offers a brand new program for Midwest Magic.

His two-hour lecture includes original stage and
close-up magic using cards, coins, cigars and a
variety of everyday objects. Each routine is a lesson
in itself, containing the insights and ingenuities
that have made John one of the premier teachers of
magic today. Topics include presentation, routining,
misdirection and creativity.

John's workshops are much smaller, with the three-hour
session being more specific to your personal goals.
All students should come prepared with specific
questions or problems to work on. The more you ask,
the more you will benefit from the workshop. Bring a
new routine, or one you have done for years. John
will coach you and make suggestions which will apply
to, and will be of benefit to all the students in
attendance. It is recommended that you bring a
notebook to get the most advantage from the workshop.
John's sessions are always entertaining, informative
and stimulating, packed with great routines and ideas
you can use!

The two-hour lecture is just $25. Workshops are $75
and will be held on Sunday, March 28 at 2:00 pm.
Please call Midwest Magic at 847-455-4288 or stop by
our NEW STORE 9706 Franklin Av., Franklin Park, IL
(just around the corner from the old shop) to make
your reservation!

Go, see and learn from a modern day legend and master. I had the pleasure and good fortune to attend a John Carney lecture and workshop in Toronto, Canada last year. Far and away the best lecture I have ever been to. It is simply a pleasure to watch and learn from such a gracious and thoughtful man as John Carney. He is as classy a man as he is magician. You will be a better magician after having attended this man's lecture and/or workshop. If you love magic, you MUST go and see and hear this man. I wish I lived closer to Chicago. I would be there in a heart beat.

So how was the lecture?

I too saw Mr Carney in Toronto last year and he was nothing short of magnificent. He is a solid solid performer, a good teacher and a good lecturer all around. His magic blew me away. I hope he comes back again.

So, once more, how was the lecture??
