Chris Philpott Lecture

Chris Philpott

Date: Wednesday, March 20, 2019
Time: 6:30PM
Location: The Ronald McDonald House, 2555 49th Street, Sacramento
Cost: $20 ( Free to members in good standing of IBM 192, SAM 72)

Chris has been an aficionado of magic since his teens, first working at Len Cooper’s Browser’s Den in Toronto and later as a performer. After taking a 25-year break to pursue a successful writing career in Hollywood, Chris has emerged as a creator, producer, and main consultant for many of the top headliners in magic today. On the art of magic, Chris is a passionate scholar and collector of books and other magic ephemera, and has contributed to Magic, Genii and Vanish Magazines.

Chris will be teaching a number of mentalist and magic effects from his arsenal of best selling effects and books, including 100th Monkey Principle, Intimate Mysteries and Narcissus. He will also teach new effects and his variations on some classics. He may even sneak in a bit of theory, applying the skills he’s learned over the decades as a screenwriter to magic so you’ll be able to make the magic you already do more powerful.
