 The Strolling Magician Book

120 x A4 size pages
Hardbacked with laminated dustjacket
26 chapters
70 illustrations
18 strolling routines

I have been working close up commercially for over 30 years and in that time I have gradually amassed experience of working in a huge variety of venues and working situations. Exactly how to cope with everything that the modern day close up worker encounters requires thought, planning and expertise if you really wish to do it well, and in this book I have tried to give as much real world advice as I can to help make your job that much easier.

There are 8 chapters of highly detailed advice on all aspects of commercial close up, the chapter headings being: Is Strolling Magic Right For You?, First Things First - The Approach, Table Manners, Nuts And Bolts, Special Events/Venues, The Tricks, The Pro Magician and The Final Word. I have gone into great detail about the many aspects of the strolling magic ‘job’ and everything I have said comes directly from my own experiences - it may not be the only way, but it works very well for me and I hope it will for you too.

Interspersed amongst this goldmine of advice are 18 strolling routines to add to your repertoire: Spin Out, A Bite To Eat, Intuition, The Hypnotised Coin, My Card Sir, Badgered, The Department Store, Paper Money, The Magic Ring, Beer Money, A ‘Groan’ Man, Aces Under Control, Name Dropper, Copy Ring, The Caught Card, The Acrobatic Coin, Credit Scare, Simplex Hopping Halves. Every single routine is fully described and is obviously suitable for this type of work.

The Strolling Magician is based on and now supersedes the highly successful Art Of Hopping Tables. All the advice chapters have been completely re-written from scratch and the magic itself collects together many of my strongest and most practical commercial routines. I believe this book will provide all readers with a rich vein of advice and information and will be a worthy addition to any magic bookshelf.

 The Art Of Hopping Tables DVD

Click to watch a trailer from the DVD

The first part of this DVD  is a magical documentary as you are taken along with Mark Leveridge on one of his commercial bookings. This is an almost unique opportunity to see what happens in a professional magician's 'day at the office'.

First Mark explains everything that goes into the preparation for an evening of strolling magic - it's a fascinating insight into what goes on behind the scenes in the build up to a show. Then you are there as Mark entertains his audiences - you see it all exactly as it happened!

This is then followed by an analysis of what makes a successful table hopping performance as Mark and Chris Payne look again at some of the key moments from the evening's work and discuss exactly how all the principles of performance come together.

This is the 'art' of commercial close up - it shows how all the many facets of personality, technique, audience control, and magic effects are blended into a memorable experience for the spectators.

Next there is a discussion with experienced strolling magician Stuart Bowie about many other aspects of close-up performance with particular reference to restaurant and dinner function work. Revealed in a candid and truthful way are many of the intimate working secrets of an experienced strolling magician. It is a goldmine of advice borne of genuine experience and it is highly valuable to both experienced and novice strolling magicians. 

Now the DVD concentrates on the magic itself.

Using relevant sections of live footage you will see 6 effects performed by Mark for his audiences and then fully explained in an entertaining and informal style with Chris Payne. All the magic comes directly from Mark's own current repertoire. The effects explained are as follows:

  • Spin Out - A 'flashy' card revelation and production as the sealed deck is thrown into the air and the selected card instantly appears outside the box.
  • Name Dropper - a spectator's name somehow jumps from the back of his freely named card onto the back of your business card.
  • The Hypnotised Coin - very visual four stage coin and handkerchief routine. No gimmicks or extra coins.
  • The Caught Card - very strong card release. Three ungimmicked cards with holes in one end are used. A Court card penetrates off an examined ribbon when trapped between the other two indifferent cards.
  • Copy Ring - delightful borrowed ring routine. Often gets gasps from the lay audience.
  • Aces Under Control - a simple yet strong way to produce the four Aces. Practical to use under any conditions!

All the magic has been used regularly under fire - it works! Learn these routines and you will have added some strong magic to your repertoire.

This DVD is the L&L Publishing version of The Art Of Hopping Tables which is region free and so can be played anywhere in the world.
