“A Magical Medley”

Selections from the Lecture Notes of Tom Dobrowolski

In Tom’s recent series of 5 highly acclaimed lectures/lecture notes he brings together his own magic along with some of his favorite magic from his friends like Jack Carpenter, Jeff Prace, Curtis Kam, John Carey, Ed Oschmann, Trent James, Jeremiah Zuo, Richard Hucko, Joe Cole, Benny Lau, David Kuraya and Patrick Flanagan. Tom’s goal in every item he releases is to provide strong fun magic that you will learn and perform. The success of this lecture notes series led to Tom being asked to present a Penguin Live Lecture in November 2015.

His lecture ”A Magical Medley” is a “best of” from those 5 lectures. Each lecture starts with a short show/performance of the effects that will be taught.

The lecture includes:

Right Down the Street-This is my handling of the Out of This World plot inspired by the genius Dani's your life....

Hana Ho Card- Curtis Kam-"Hana Ho" means "Do it Again!" in Hawaiian. And Hawaii magician Curtis Kam uses this simplified moving hole effect to answer that call, it's a quick encore to any effect using a signed card that transforms that card into something just a little more special for the lucky person who gets to keep it.

Naked Deck Opener-Trent James-The perfect opener to a card or close up set. A blank deck becomes instantly printed with faces and backs. Very fun simple visual magic. In a second handling a decl you’ve been using to perform suddenly becomes blank then returns to normal. The deck and immediately be used for additional tricks as it is in the lecture.

Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater-My take on the Lie Detector plot influenced by Solomon-Steinmeyer-DaOrtiz My new FAVORITE impromptu trick with additional refinement from Eugene Burger and Max Maven

The Portal-Jeremiah Zuo-Cards appear as they travel through a portal! No really they do!

Something Borrowed Something New- Jack Carpenter-You’ll be doing some amazing visual magic with very little effort and a freely selected card. You’ll love this!

As well as:

Away We Go
Haunted Bolt (bonus)
- Curtis Kam Inverted Matrix-Curtis Kam
Whole Hearted Hopping BBQ Ribs 3 Coins Across-Jeremiah Zuo (truly a new take on this plot!)

Also performances of OiATER (https://, Big Four Poker ( and In the Hands Wild Card (
