Jon Allen is a performer, lecturer, author and creator of unique magical effects and routines such as Double Back, The Silent Treatment and Paragon (universally acknowledged by impartial magicians as the absolute best version of ‘card to clear box’) A professional magician since 1988 he is also a multi-award winning magician having won The Magic Circle, World IBM & British Ring IBM close-up competitions. He has lectured to magicians worldwide from USA to Australia. He was invited to lecture at FISM in 2003. Many of his effects have appeared in magazines worldwide and he featured in the July 2009 issue of MAGIC magazine.
Jon’s DVD set, ‘Connection’ contains many of the routines he regularly performs when working. There are no knuckle-busting, sleight-heavy routines; Jon is more interested in routines and presentations that capture people’s imaginations and makes them care about magic!
In the lecture, you will not only learn how to perform Jon’s routines but also a vast array of performance, presentational and psychological tips that will help improve the magic you already do.
Among the routines you will learn in his lecture are:
# The Wedding Trick: destined to become the definitive wedding trick for happy couples around the world.
# 1 Trick 2 Names: Jon’s solution to the ‘Dream Card’ effect makes it even stronger.
# Grabbit Production: A new way to produce any manner of different objects.
# Burning Rubber: Numerous rubber band effects, including the restoration of a band around someone's wrist, weaved into a full routine for walkaround or table work.
# Schrödinger's Card: Jon's controversial card effect that leaves people with an impossible object and a memory they will never forget.
