Join us as we welcome Chris Turchi for a lecture filled with classic material to help you take your magic to the next level. Here's what you'll learn:
Bottle Opener: The most important part of your show is your opening routine. This is the sure-fire effect that Chris has been opening his stage and close-up show with for nearly a decade! Once this routine is over, you're sure to have your audience hooked and wanting more. It starts out as an engaging appearance and disappearance of a coin and it ends with the production of a huge wine bottle they'll never see coming. Not only will you learn his full routine, but you'll also learn all the nuances that Chris has injected into this hilariously entertaining act.
Comedy Sponge: This is the routine that got Chris into Katy Perry's dressing room. It's a staple in magic that everyone is familiar with, but with Chris's twists it'll be a performance your audience will never forget. Here you'll learn both of his versions, a clean one and a not so clean one *wink wink smiley face*. To you it might just be sponge balls, but to your audience it's a thrill ride of astonishment and laughter.
Coin: Normally coin magic is filled with bad angles, but this is a unique 4-minute multiphase coin routine that can be performed fully surrounded. Chris has evolved and perfected this routine for over 15 years, and now it is a featured part of his close-up act. It's hit after hit of magical moments and just when they think it's over, you hit them with another eye-popping moment even "bigger" than the last.
Torque: The classic arm twist routine modified to be performed on stage and up off the ground.
Envy-lope (Bonus): With thousands of copies sold worldwide and considered by some as the best card trick of all time, Chris teaches a new version of this hard-hitting effect that isn't taught on the original DVD. If this is an effect that you already perform, this is something you'll definitely want to see. And if you don't already perform Envy-lope, you'll wonder where this has been your entire life.
