The Lecture

Gene Anderson's The Book received stellar reviews when it debuted last year. Teller called it, "A gold mine." Nine years in the writing, each of its twenty-three routines are from Gene's current working repertoire, routined and tightened through many years of live performances for real people. All are described in every tiny detail.

"The Book LIVE!" Lecture builds on The Book in a rather unique way. After performing each routine, its live verbal explanation is the narration for a projected PowerPoint presentation. The resulting information is presented more succinctly, with more clarity, and more entertainingly than you've probably ever seen magic explanations before.

Each routine presented offers multiple lessons, but the Big Overall Take-Home Lesson is how overcoming shortcomings and tiny problems can take any published routine to higher ground. Ultimately this will make that chosen effect uniquely your own.

In this lecture, you will learn:

About Gene Anderson

Using his joyful enthusiasm and an impish sense of humor, the multi-talented Gene Anderson, who has been a two time nominee for the Academy of Magical Arts Academy Awards, skillfully weaves laughter into each performance with an array of eclectic props. Best known for his torn and restored newspaper, Gene is far more than a one-trick pony, a fact that will be immediately obvious and fully appreciated at his "The Book LIVE!" lecture.
