Larry Becker is one of those names in our business who has developed nothing less than a cult following since hitting the mentalism scene so many decades ago. Larry was cool when people didn't even know what mentalism was. He worked at his craft for many years and, with Lee Earle (and their company, "Mentalism Unlimited"), developed some of the most innovative, commercial mentalism effects that are still used by successful mentalists today.
In this week's podcast, Larry talks about his long-standing love for mentalism, his early performances when he was in the military, meeting Cardini and Milbourne Christopher, his bout with prostate cancer, and of course, the rise and fall of "Mentalism Unlimited".
You can watch a video of Larry performing his "Casino Royale", see some recent photos of Larry taken in his home, read the blog, listen to the podcast online, and download the MP3 file at: https://www.themagicwordpodcast.com/sco ... rry-becker
