The Blurb

On February 26th 2009 a historic event took place. Bob Cassidy gave a one-of-a-kind two hour teleseminar which was hosted by his longtime student and friend Michael Weber.

Two hours of pure Cassidy where he answered questions and  spoke on a number of crucially important points on mentalism. Some of the topics discussed were:

  •  Persona: Selecting effects consistent with your
    persona; choosing a persona; credibility; the Dr. Crow
    persona.
  • Rehearsing: How to practice mentalism.
  • What is bad mentalism?
  • Scripts versus Improvisation
  • Mentalism versus Mental Magic
  • Publicity stunts
  • Logical disconnect: The importance of preventing the possibility for spectators to back trace the method.
  • and a lot more…

Bob also explained several of the points he wanted to make on concrete examples, effects he uses or used in his professional stage program, such as his Russian Roulette routine.

Additionally to the two hour MP3 you will receive two PDFs. One is the pre-seminar lecture notes that everybody received before the seminar started. And the other is a post-seminar PDF where Bob followed up on many questions submitted by listeners.

[This event was sponsored by Tony Blake, Jerome Finley, Jheff Poncher, and Chris Wasshuber.]

1st edition 2009; 2 hours

My Comments

As a co-producer of this event, I am admittedly a bit biased.  Be that as it may, if you've never had the pleasure of attending one of Bob's lectures and seeing him live, this is the next best thing.  And, if you have, then I don't need to tell why you should get this.  Bob is arguably the most influential mentalist of the past few decades and he's also a very entertaining speaker.  I know that I'm not alone in my opinion.

Incidentally, the blurb above says that this was a "one-of-a-kind" seminar and that's how we billed it. However, because it was such a success, Bob had so much fun doing it, and seemingly everyone thought it was wonderful, there are plans to do more teleseminars.  Each one, though, will be planned to be different.

As described above, this is all instantly downloadable. Included in the package is the two hour seminar, plus the lecture notes (23 pages) and the post lecture notes (8 pages).  If you've read the comments on the forums (and could see the responses Bob and the producers of this event have been getting), many have said that the notes alone are worth the price.

If you're not familiar with Bob Cassidy, this is a great introduction to the brilliance of his work and generosity. If you are familiar with his work, and you don't have it . . . well, why not?!?  Really, this recording will become a classic in mentalism.  I have little doubt of that.
