Review: At the Table Live Lecture – Simon Black

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Reviewer: Jared Hansen”][vc_column_text]As a bar magician and someone who loves impromptu close up card magic.. this was a really great lecture. I think it was a bit dry at times due to the banter between Greg Wilson and him and awkward jokes.. but I was there for the meat and potatoes.. and it was good stuff.

For 20 years old, he’s one hell of a magician. I think his performing style might  differ from his teaching style as he was reaching for laughs a bit too hard but as a review I feel obligated to mention it but it really was not that hard to ignore.

He has some really good, what I call framework routines.. I say framework in the most sincere way. His routines are really designed to be flexible to the magician and that is something I really appreciate and like a lot. He also has a lot of card routines that make a lot of sense for multiple environments to include my favourite… bars.

One thing I really loved was the first routine.. he uses a slight that can not only be a control, but a vanish and color change.. it is.. well.. pretty rad.

During some Skype-ins he was able to convey to me anyways he has clearly thought deeply about what he is doing and I like that his age does not affect his maturity regarding the art form and that shows.

Overall I really liked it and will be on the look out for more of his stuff.. I think he is only getting started. Simon Black really seems to understand how to be a good student of magic and a lot of people can learn from his example and I will be stealing some of his magic as well.

Thanks Simon.
