Jonathan is an actor, magician, television host and producer with an act you will long remember that encompasses sophis8cated humor, mind reading and magic. His career began with one of the most highly acclaimed episodes of The X-Files, starring opposite Ricky Jay. He went on to roles in television and films such as Flashforword (ABC), The Others (NBC) and The Huntress (USA). Combining magic and hos8ng, Jonathan was seen on VH1 as the host and a judge of the celebrity reality magic series, Celebracadabra, and has appeared on Masters of Illusion (FOX).

The Lecture:

In this highly acclaimed lecture, Jonathan teaches more than just the trick. Yes, youíll learn some time tested foolers - effects straight from Jonathanís personal repertoire Ė but heíll also teach you about audience management, psychology, act structure, and developing your character. He will discuss turning a trick into an event, his theory of moving the moment, and the use of time misdirection.

Included in his lecture (but not limited to):

A Force Like No Other
This is a psychological force that involves 2 audience members. Jonathan will teach his psychology when working with a spectator to give the impression that a selected card is arrived at with no involvement from the magician, while seemingly taking place completely in the spectatorís hands
Bill Switch
Jonathan will describe his handling for a bill switch that allows the bill to truly never leave the audienceís sight
Mental Miracle
This is Jonathanís opening routine from his close up act in which he divines four cards that are selected in four unique ways
Over There
An impromptu reveal of a selected card that emphasizes the build up of an effect
Card at Any Number
A selected card is positioned at any number called out by the spectator. Combined with performance technique, the impression is made that the cards were never handled by the magician
Everything Changes
This is Jonathanís signature color changing deck routine in which a selected card, as well as pack of cards, changes color after being in play for some time during the routine

Jonathan will be discussing Performance and Character in construction and presentation of an act For more informa8on about Jonathan Levit, visit his websites:
