November looks like being a vintage month for lectures here at The Lounge. On Thursday 1 November we have professional close-up and stand-up magician Andi Gladwin presenting his acclaimed lecture, plus a bonus of three new pieces!
Earlier this month Andi received The John Nevil Maskelyne Literary Award from The Magic Circle. The award is presented for “noteworthy contributions to the art or literature of magic”, so it is clear that this is a lecture not to be missed.
Here’s a small sampling of what you’ll learn:
An introduction to the Master Pushoff;
A decent helping of close-up tricks that Andi uses in his professional performances;
A full stand-up routine that fits in a briefcase, yet fills a stage;
If the audience wishes, he is also prepared to add a brief talk, with some interesting thoughts on marketing for magicians. (I trust you will wish; marketing is vital to anyone who hopes to earn a living from magic, but is too often overlooked.)
The lecture starts at 7:30 at The Magick Lounge, 82 Broad Street, Sheffield S2 5TG. Doors open at 7:11 p.m. Admission is £10, but free to paid-up members of the Sheffield Circle of Magicians.
