A Professional's Repertoire

Ian Keable has been a full time magician since 1990, working principally in Comedy Clubs and at Corporate events. His lecture, Cabaret Magic, concentrates on the theory and practise of what he does for a living: performing Cabaret for adult audiences.

Mark Leveridge
E-Club Pro - Live! 2017-18 Version

A Lecture Like They Used To Be

The latest version of Mark Leveridge's professionally presented club lecture evening offers maximum value as it consists of a dozen varied routines and ideas, every single one of which is properly performed and then carefully and fully explained.

And guess what - this is NOT a thinly disguised 'dealer dem' that requires the club members to put their hand in their pocket to pay for the props to perform the lecture items, as there are NO individual items for sale afterwards at all! Yep, it's a lecture like they used to be!

The reason is that the magic in this lecture uses everyday objects or commonly used props. There are routines with coins, cards, purses, Jumbo cards, silks, rope and more, and the effects themselves are all practical and well within the abilities of everyone except the total beginner. With magic to suit a close up show, and walkabout, as well as parlour performances and mentalism, there's pretty much something for everyone.

All the routines come from the Vintage Vault and The Teach In sections of Mark's online magic resource E-Club Pro, hence the lecture title, and it provides an entertaining and fascinating evening of magic for all club members to enjoy.

Lecture review by Donald Bevan – Former editor of Abracadabra magazine:

"Another break, before a feature lecture by Martin Duffy, well known to many magicians and one of the busiest performers in the North-east. The lecture was special on two counts: one it was Martin’s first on the subject, two it was aimed at children’s performers. Not however the ‘party magician’ but educational magic for schools, Martin’s specialist forté. He explained how he divides his work into age groups, effects used to cover maths, environmental issues and other subjects all wrapped up in one package – fun! His workbox or trunk has a combination lock which the children solve, his sponge ball routine is fun (counting), and numbers on a silk scarf magically jumped around. There was sound advice on how to approach schools, suggested fees and effects. Excellent."

Mike Stoner
Close Up Magic Done The Easy Way

Close-up magic is all about the effect on the spectator, not the method used to achieve it. So why make it hard for yourself with complex sleights and fancy props? Keep things simple! This lively and entertaining lecture takes a number of classic routines and shows how to create the ultimate “easy-to-do” version of each. The “wow factor” is the same but the techniques required have been minimised - and with no difficult moves you can concentrate on performance and patter, making your magic that much more enjoyable for everyone.

During the lecture you’ll see demonstrations and explanations of routines such as card under watch, colour-changing deck, an impromptu book test, magic with a borrowed iPhone, coin bends and lots more. All done in the simplest possible way. Powerful close-up routines that you can do within minutes – once you have the know-how! The lecture also includes tips on how to start working professionally and anecdotes from the life of a magician who has learnt it all the hard way, so you don’t have to!

Mike is a professional magician, mentalist and hypnotist. He has performed for many major companies and celebrities as well as appearing on ITV and SKY.

Recent lecture reviews:


“It is rare to see a magician who can entertain an audience that much with just a deck of cards. But Paul Gordon is one of them! His shows are as funny as the magic he performs is strong. Paul perfectly knows what the spectators enjoy and deliver it to them with great humour and killer effects.”BORIS WILD


“Paul Gordon is a modern master of close-up magic. His extensive knowledge and ability to create visual and stunning routines is unmatched in the world.” JEFF McBRIDE

"Although cards are not my speciality, I have just been to one of Paul Gordon's lectures and it was the most entertaining and informative one I have ever been to; and very funny"


"I have just spent a very enjoyable couple of hours watching Paul Gordon's excellent lecture. There are so many workable ideas. I urge you to watch Paul, you will not be disappointed!"WAYNE DOBSON


“Paul Gordon is the best there is! Brilliant magician, great entertainer, superb lecturer and nice guy!”J.C WAGNER

“He held some fifty people enthralled. His command is phenomenal. He makes card tricks entertaining! He has the audience hanging onto his every word!”WALT LEES

Paul lectures on magic from his 'live' act and from his books; proof enough that it is all practical and very magical! He feels that he can even turn non-cardmen into, well, at least semi-interested cardmen.

Steve Dimmer
Eccen-Tricks - The new lecture from Steve Dimmer

Steve Dimmer offers a brand new lecture featuring a whole 2 hours of original effects.

This lecture is different. It comprises of at least 16 close-up and stage tricks of which only one is a playing card trick, only one involves coins. The majority involves everyday objects transformed into amazing magical tricks.

Highlights include

Over A Barrel, a walk-around Russian Roulette routine
Distress Signal, an amazing routine themed around The Titanic, suitable for close-up or stage.
A Bump on The Head, a divination themed around phrenology with the magician feeling a spectators skull!
Text Book, an exercise in mentalism which can be done with an audience or by phone, email or even text!!

Eccentric, eclectic, enthusiastic and effective Eccen-tricks is an amazing collection of newly devised routines all of which have been bench-tested in the real world. It is already receiving huge praise from the magical fraternity.


"Steve Dimmer's new lecture is surely destined to become one of the highlights of the current lecture circuit. Highly original, highly entertaining and highly innovative with a broad spectrum of magical effects and ideas that are guaranteed to mystify the lay public and magicians alike. It is rare that a lecture has such a wide and enthusiastic response from both beginners and experienced magicians - don't miss it if you get the opportunity to see it." Royston AIMC


"Steve lectured at our club on Tuesday 3rd October and it was an amazing varied lecture, chock full of brilliantly original ideas... To say there was something for everyone, would be an understatement. There was so much for everyone. Over the barrel is brilliant, but the fun you generate with his Face Mats routine and the photo opportunities they provide make them something your audience will never forget." David Miller

"It was a very different lecture and kept well away from what I call more accursed card tricks. Steve passed on some great storylines that could be used as a model for many pieces of magic. One of the best lectures we've had for a long time." Ted McCrillack, Treasurer NMC

"Steve is able to create magic out of just about anything. It could be an old photo, a fidget spinner, or even a tin can! Entertaining and original routines appear out of nowhere just like, well, magic.---A two hour lecture packed full of easy to do and original ideas.--Highly recommended." Ken Hawkes


"Steves’ lecture is amusing, informative and imaginative. He brings his own enthusiasm and humour into the lecture, introducing new and exciting ideas." Michael. J. Price. Leamington & Warwick Magic Society

"Steve delivered a lecture packed with new and original effects all with great stories for the plots, ideal for the working pro and hobbyist alike, this lecture has something for everyone." Steve Butler

"I have got to honestly say this is up there with the best lectures I've seen in the past couple of years since I've been going to lectures. What I loved firstly was how diverse the magic was. Lately it seems I'm seeing card trick after card trick with maybe a few coins or so on in between. But Steve has variety, with great ideas and magic to suit everyone. It ranged from bizarre magic to stuff you can use in kids shows. One of his tricks I bought I think will be my main event trick in my act now and personally I would have paid double for it, so Steve prices are more than reasonable. I'm not just saying this it really was a pleasure to have had the chance to see this wonderful lecture." Lee Joseph


"I always find Steve's lectures entertaining and informative. He is a creator and innovator making the impossible magical by using everyday objects, leaving you spellbound." Andy Bracey


"Steve's reputation as a top creator and performer of magic ensured we had a large audience for his lecture. We knew we were in for a treat and he exceeded our expectations. He presented a strong and varied lecture, which was ram-packed with quality content that has all been worked. All items were clearly taught in his fun, friendly approach. We will be sure to book Steve again in the future. Very Highly recommended!" Matthew Garrett MIMC

"Extremely well structured lecture that engaged the audience at every level. I thoroughly enjoyed the humorous elements and felt every trick was a 'worker'. Brilliant !!!" Mark Paul

Steve has been a professional magician for 21 years. During that time he has devised commercial effects for Davenports Magic, Practical Magic, Made-To-Measure Magic, Merlins of Wakefield and Pythagorus Magic. His mentalist trick Screen Test has been a huge seller for Alakazam Magic and is now in four different editions.

Contact him now to see if he is available to fill that gap in your schedule, all dates considered!

"Straight away from the off, Steve showed us some bewildering effects based on his own ideas, everything from a trick with a rubber band to some powerful card work which was strong in performance but easy to do. His nice laid back style made the lecture very enjoyable. Steve takes time to make sure every one fully understands the routines and how to do them. Steve would be enjoyed by any society that booked him."  ~ Clive Moore, President of the IBM British Ring

"The moment I walked in the room there was a sense of "This is a man who takes what he does seriously, and wants to give of his best"...and it raised the game for us all. I was really impressed with the way you had prepared yourself sartorially, so to speak, and also the quality and presentation of the merchandise you had on sale. You have a generosity of spirit and whilst it is your living, you nevertheless were very free with advice and your goods too were very fairly priced. Also your sense of ‘can do’ creativity was inspiring." ~ Keith Wells, Leicester Magic Circle

"I thoroughly enjoyed your lecture last night, one of my colleagues and I just kept looking at each other at the end of each effect wondering 'whatever next'I don't think I've seen/met a magician with such an interesting array of effects and variations on originals at the Guild before. You have a very creative mind, Well done my friend! Overall it was one of the best lectures I have seen at the Guild and I joined in 1989!" ~ John Scott, Nottingham Guild of Magicians

"A goodly crowd was assembled for what turned out to be an afternoon full of original ideas, lateral magical thinking and, on occasions, the clever blending of known effects to create a whole new impact. We would certainly recommend him unreservedly to any society looking for an entertaining and totally original session.” ~ Brian Lead, Modern Mystic League

“It was professional in every respect from dress to the presentation of the effects whether they be close-up, stage or children’s magic.” ~ Liz Warlock, British Magical Society

“Well excellent isn't a word I use often, since I believe generally most things in life can be improved. We don't live in a perfect world. However your presentation for the York Society last night was excellent with a capital 'E'. It was one of the most professional presentations I have seen in recent times. I thought your explanations were clear and concise, as was demonstrated by the very few questions asked with each illusion. I found the entire evening inspirational. It was encouraging to see your emphasis on entertainment rather than complex manipulating skills. Thank you so much for spending your time with us.” ~ Austin Siviter, York Society of Magicians

"Steve's lecture to The Darlington Magic Circle was a joy to behold. All the items were real time workers, tried and tested in the field by a true professional. They were clearly explained and Steve took great pains to ensure all quieries (of which there were very few) were fully satisfied. He has such an engaging personality too! A lesson in itself. If his smile was any broader, it would meet at the back! Nobody in the audience went away without something they could use and I have no hesitation in recommending Steve for your Circle or Club meeting. Very well worth seeing." ~ Nick Richmond, President of The Darlington Magic Circle

"Thoroughly enjoyed your lecture last night, a perfect mix of effects and to be honest I missed how many different items you performed as you seemed to get through so many without rushing or padding. All the tricks were instant workers with minimal skill required which then allows the performer to concentrate more on the entertainment side, which is perfect for me. I was racking my brains to try and find a way that I would use your book test as I absolutely loved it (the method is ingenious by the way!) but at the moment it would just sit on a shelf as I dont do mentalism but wish I did so then I could buy it! Thanks again for sharing everything with us last night, I would have no hesitation recommending you to other circles and societies, it was a first rate night!" ~ Stuart "Stu Di Doo" Hodgson, Darlington Magic Circle
